The Optimize Mastery Series

Imagine distilling the absolute best wisdom and biggest ideas from the Optimize Core Wisdom library (1,000+ Optimize +1s, 500+ PhilosophersNotes, and 50 Optimal Living 101 classes) into ONE program that can change your life. That’s the Optimize Mastery Series.

Our 250-day program features the 7 (+1!) core Modules of the Optimize Protocol. New modules are released every month throughout the course of 2020. Each module includes worksheets + practice videos from Optimize Head Coach, Michael, to help you move from Theory to Practice to Mastery.

So…ready to close that gap between who you’re CAPABLE of being and who you’re ACTUALLY being so you can more consistently express the optimus-best, most heroic version of yourself in service to the world?

Awesome. Join us and LET’S DO THIS!

Mastery Series Modules


Module I: Eudaimonology

The Study of a Good Soul + How to Operationalize Virtue via Ancient Wisdom + Modern Science + Practical Optimizing Tools

In which we define the game that we're playing, hang out with Aristotle, Abraham Maslow and Martin Seligman, discover that the word “psychology” literally means “the study of the soul” and commit to studying what a “good soul” (aka eudaimonia) looks like as we, most importantly, learn how to master the process of high-fiving our inner souls all day every day by operationalizing virtue.

Module II: Hero-ology - Part 2: Training & Tools

Preparing for Our Heroic Quests by Training Like Warriors and Stocking Our Armamentarium With Tools + Weapons + Provisions

In which we practice our philosophy with intensity, learn basic orienteering, and equip ourselves with ready-at-hand tools for the journey, including a Virtue Compass, Heroic Healing Balm, Hero Pills, Secret Weapons, Hero Fires, Pearls, Hope Maps, and Hero Bars.

Module II: Hero-ology - Part 3: Scientific Target Practice

​​Applying the Best of Modern Science to the Study of a Good Hero

In which we learn the science of how to make our goals reality via WOOP, increase our motivation, cultivate grit, and Optimize our courage en route to maintaining dynamic tension and dynamic equilibrium while aiming ourselves towards our Universal, Unique, and Ultimate quests.

Module III: The Big 3 (x 2)

Energy + Work + Love x Identity + Virtues + Behaviors

In which we hang out with Michelangelo in his studio and get to work sculpting our ideal selves via our Big 3: Energy + Work + Love. How? Getting clarity on our new Identities and the Virtues we will embody and the Behaviors we will practice. When? Every day. Which is the focus of our next Module…

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part 1: The Big Picture

Today's the Day to Create Emotional Stamina via Masterpiece Days

If we’re serious about moving from Theory to Practice to Mastery then we need to know one very (!) important fact: TODAY’S the Day!! In this session, we’ll look at the big picture, meet the reporter who’s always following you around, learn about the importance of knowing and EXECUTING our protocol. (Know this: the worse we feel, the MORE committed we need to be to executing our protocol!) We’ll also take a v1 pass at our Masterpiece Day template.

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part 2: The PM Bookend

Masterpiece Days Begin the Night Before

Now that we know TODAY’S the Day (!!!), it’s time to start at the beginning of our Optimal day—which just so happens to be the END of the prior day. As such, we’re going to start architecting our Masterpiece Day with a solid Shutdown Complete and Digital Sunset protocol. We’ll get better at turning our brains off so we can get to bed earlier and wake up (without an alarm?) nice and early feeling all bright and shiny. (Note: Optimizers consistently tell us THIS session changes lives.)

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part 3: The AM Bookend

Install AM Protocol & Win the Day Early

With a solid PM Bookend installed, we’re ready to show up like a Boss in the morning—waking up feeling energized and ready to do some of our most important Big 3 goodness BEFORE we enter the world of inputs. We’ll begin installing a solid AM protocol, including a meditation and Carpe Diem telos practice and, if you can swing it with your idiosyncratic constraints, some Deep Work, Deep Energy, and Deep Love time blocks.
