Optimize Mastery Series


My beloved fellow Optimizer:

This is Brian. 👋

Imagine me 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.


And, it’ll all be part of your Optimize membership.


(Not a member yet? Start your free two-week trial here.)


Our 250-day program features the 7 (+1!) core Modules of the Optimize Protocol: Starting with Eudaimonology, Antifragile Response-Ability, The Big 3 (x2), and Carpe Diem then moving on to Heroic Quests, Algorithms, The Fundamentals, and Antifragile Confidence + Heroic Courage.


Starting February, 2020 you’ll be able to find new modules released every month.

Immediately following each Mastery Series session, you’ll also be able to watch me working with participants of our Optimize Coach program and coaching them on taking it to the next level.

So… Ready to make 2020 THE GREATEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE (and start of the greatest decade of your life) as you 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.

P.S. Our Head Coach Michael Balchan will be joining us throughout the program to help us move from Theory to Practice to Mastery. You’ll love him as much as I do—and the 1,000+ Optimize Coaches he helped train last year do! He’ll be following up with more details in the days and weeks (and months) ahead.

P.P.S. Here’s a deeper look at what we’ll be covering.

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part III: 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.

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part IV: Energy

Create Rhythms. Train Your Recovery. Flip the Switch.

With our AM and PM Bookends coming together, we’re ready to Optimize our Energy throughout the day. Too many of us go through our days constantly “on” and, as a result, feeling a sense of what we call “enervated anxiety” (a close relative of burnout and bleh). To help the cause, we’ll teach you how to create a deep sense of “Energized Tranquility” by systematically creating rhythms to our days that enable us to show up as our best selves more and more consistently throughout the day and over the years and decades ahead. (Boom!)

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part V: Work

Going Deep Pre-Inputs with 100% Presence

With our Energy Optimized, we’re ready to go Deep and give ourselves most fully to the world via deep, meaningful work. We’ll talk about how to go Deep, discover our idiosyncratic rhythms and track our awesome via our Carpe Diem journal. Whether you’re a startup CEO or a stay-at-home supermom, we’ll be creating a ton of flow via deliberate, intentional, deep and meaningful work.

Module IV: Carpe Diem - Part VI: Love

Love 0.0 + Love 1.0 + Love 2.0 + Love 3.0 + Love ∞.0

Now that we know that Today's the Day and have our AM and PM Bookends rocking along with superhero levels of Energy and Work, we're ready for the most important thing: LOVE. In this session we'll redefine Love and set some fun daily targets as we master Love 0.0, Love 1.0, Love 2.0, Love 3.0 and Love ∞.0. When? TODAY!!! And tomorrow and…

Module V: Algorithms - Part I: The Big Picture

Using Our Willpower Wisely to Install Habits That Run on Autopilot

In which we learn how to install and delete algorithms (aka habits!) that will make it easy for you to show up as your best self. We need to get really good at using our willpower wisely to install great habits that run on autopilot so we can give the world all we’ve got. We’ll master this process as we create our first set of algorithms and start thinking about our Top 10 Power Algorithms we want running the show.

Module V: Algorithms - Part II: Install

Being a Good Co-Pilot for Your Daimon Pilot and Basal Ganglia Auto-Pilot

In which we make it really, really easy to create good habits, identify the #1 habit that will have the most positive impact on our lives if we START doing it, and install it.

Module V: Algorithms - Part III: Delete

Removing the Habits That Make You Crash or Create an Unnecessarily Bumpy Ride

In which we make it really, really hard to do the bad habits that we know don't serve us, identify the #1 habit that will have the most positive impact on our lives if we STOP doing it, and delete it.

Module V: Algorithms - Part IV: Top 10 Power Algorithms

The Essential Algorithms to Install to Reach Your Heroic Potential

After asking the important question of "What variable are we Optimizing for?," we explore The Top 10 Optimize Power Algorithms we can use to create a higher probability of living in alignment with our Daimons.

Module VI: The Fundies - Part I: The Big Picture

Energize to Optimize and Alchemize: Virtue-Wise, Peak-Performance-Wise, and Spirituality-Wise

Optimizing all starts with a strong foundation. Let's plug in and shine by getting clarity on the fundamentals: Eating, Moving and Sleeping plus Breathing, Being Present, Being Grateful and Prospering. After hanging out with John Wooden and learning how to put on our socks and build skyscrapers, we'll identify your #1 self-care habit that keeps you plugged in and we’ll make a 100% ALL IN commitment to installing the habits that will let your soul shine with radiant enthusiasm as you get in the best health and of your life.

Module VI: The Fundies - Part II: Eat

An 80/20 Look at Optimal Nutrition

In which we explore the importance of optimizing our nutrition to become (even more!) radiantly alive. We remind ourselves that there is no "the" way—especially for nutrition—while reviewing some pretty universal recommendations on what to eat (food!) and, even more importantly, what to avoid (edible food-like substances; aka ultra-processed sugar-laden pseudo foods that make us sick and tired!).
