You might know one of his bestselling books, The 4-Hour Workweek, released in 2009, but you probably haven’t heard of Tim Ferris‘ podcast which was started in 2014 and already released over 100 episodes. He usually interviews people who are best at what they’re doing. He deconstructs world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art, etc.) to extract the tactics and tricks you can use.
Prior guests include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ed Catmull (President of Pixar), Tony Robbins, Peter Thiel (billionaire investor), Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park), Neil Strauss (7x NYT bestselling author), Josh Waitzkin (chess prodigy), and many, many more.
In one of the recent episodes he himself answers the question about 5 morning rituals that help him win the day. Although he not always completes all 5 of them he is convinced that if he ticks off at least 3 of them, the likelihood of that day being a home run is infinitely greater.
- Make your bed
- Hang or decompress
If you want to learn about the rituals in more detail, listen to the podcast episode.
