This week was all about learning how to live the best life you possibly can, on your own terms. This means thinking through very carefully what that specifically means for you, what is most important to you, and what you would like written on your tombstone, and then optimizing your entire life around that end-goal.
We also talk about the science of making decisions, why the modern world’s endless possibilities actually paralyzes our decision-making ability, why and how to cross-pollinate in business networking, and much, much more, on this episode of the Tai Lopez Show.
