Welcome to the first Note of 2020.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting for my dear friend Pilar Gerasimo to write a book that captures her wisdom on how to Optimize our lives and give the world all we’ve got. And… The wait is over! :)
As we’ve discussed, Pilar is one of the wisest people I know. Among many other things, she created Experience Life magazine (which currently reaches over 3 million people per year) and is the co-host of the Living Experiment podcast with Dallas Hartwig (co-founder of Whole30).
The lead quote for this book perfectly captures the thesis of the book *and* it happens to be THE wisdom gem I most frequently repeated in our inaugural Optimize Coach class.
Yep. That’s about right. In a society in which the VAST majority of us are sick and tired and anxious and depressed and, well, blah… IT IS NO MEASURE OF HEALTH TO BE WELL ADJUSTED TO THAT SICK SOCIETY. (Right?)
Enter: The Healthy Deviant.
This “Rule Breaker’s Guide to Being Healthy in an Unhealthy World” is, of course, packed with Big Ideas. (Get a copy .) And, of course, I’m excited to share some of my favorites we can apply to our lives TODAY, so let’s jump straight in!
