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 VI: The Fundies - Part III: Move

An 80/20 Guide to Becoming an Energized Perpetual Motion Machine

In which we learn how to take advantage of the time-released, well-being power tool of exercise while also finding Opportunities-to-Move throughout the day and helping our designed-to-move bodies experience the gift of playing our personal movement games. Enter: You, the Energized Perpetual Motion Machines!

Module VI: The Fundies - Part IV: Sleep

An 80/20 Look at Why We Sleep, Why We Don't Sleep, and How to Optimize Our #1 Fundie

In which we learn that Sleep isn't just a pillar of optimizing, it's the foundation on which all of our fundamentals rest! (It's also the most underappreciated way to change our lives.) We review what science says about the Top 10 Sleep Kryptonites (and how to minimize/eliminate each of them) before identifying the most important things we can do as we move from Theory to Practice to Sleep Mastery.

Module VI: The Fundies - Part V: Breathe

An 80/20 Look at How to Optimize Your Breathing for Calm, Focused Energy (Aka Energized Tranquility!)

Having explored the 80/20 of Eating, Moving, and Sleeping, we turn our attention to another potential contender for the title of "most important fundamental." We learn how to Optimize our breathing (through the nose, deep into the belly, with long exhales) all day, every day, and how to train our tranquility with this ticket to self-mastery.

Module VI: The Fundies - Part VI: Be Present

An 80/20 Look at How to Focus Your Soul Force on the Only Moment That Matters

If we want to create an awesome future AND to enjoy life right now then we need to focus on the only moment that matters: the present moment. (Aka RIGHT THIS SECOND!) We explore how to Carpe Punctum (Seize the Moment!) with the spotlight of our attention on W.I.N, and how to train our ability to put our minds where we want, when we want, for how long we want (which, science says, is THE hallmark of healthy, happy people).

Module VI: The Fundies - Part VII: Be Grateful

An 80/20 Look at the Powerful Practice of Appreciating What’s Awesome

It’s easy to get so fired up about the whole Optimizing game that we forget the fact that we’re ALREADY WINNING. Science says: Gratitude is super important. In fact, it’s the key that unlocks a ton of joy. Therefore, it’s time to make it a fundamental. (When? TODAY!)

Module VI: The Fundies - Part VIII: Prosper

An 80/20 Look at How to Invest in Optimus You, PBC, to Create a Heroic Fire That Lights up the World

In our final Module of The Fundamentals, we learn how to turn Pro and "go forward with hope." We'll build Optimus You, Public Benefit Corporation, with a personal Board of Directors and our daimons as CEO, before creating a 5-year prospectus and tracking our Optimized investment strategy of profound dignity via Eudaimonic accounting.

Module VII: Optimus You = Virtue Embodied

Energized Tranquility + Calm Confidence + Heroic Encouragement + Profound Enthusiastic Service

In which we learn to see all challenges as fuel for growth and develop intense trust in our ability to handle anything life throws at us. Why? So that we can step outside of our comfort zones and into the arena—flipping the switch, turning pro, connecting to the divine within us and giving life all we've got—in service to something bigger than ourselves. Again and again and again. For as long as it takes. How? By embodying virtue.

Module Infinite: Conclusion, Recap, & Day 1

Where We've Been and What's Next

In which we review the journey we've been on and re-commit to the process.
