  • In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

  • So for everybody watching, when you get this book, this is one of the questions that many

  • of usmentorshave answered.

  • Yeah.

  • I would say for me it is a consistent morning practice before taking my phone off of airplane

  • mode of sitting and doing a meditative practice for say 20 minutes.

  • And it stuck initially by taking a transcendental meditation class of perhaps three days when

  • I was going through a very, very difficult time.

  • And Chase Jarvis, who's awesome and a hugely successful commercial photographer, he's

  • worked at every big brand you can imagine and is also a very good CEO.

  • Both he and Rick Rubin, who is like the most legendary music producer of all time.

  • Just look at his discography.

  • It's insane.

  • It's like Johnny Cash, Eminem, Jay-Z, Metallica.

  • You know, the list is absurd.

  • It's like everybody you've ever heard of.

  • And he also said to me at one point, because I was going through a really rough time and

  • I was very tightly wound, he said have you ever considered TM?

  • And I'm like mantra.

  • Like you pay them to give you a mantra.

  • It's a cult.

  • Like, I don't want to be part of a cult and on and on and on.

  • They're like –– no it's actually really secular.

  • And I know there's a little bit of weird stuff, but you can just ignore that.

  • It's like the first hour of the talk.

  • Just ignore it.

  • What do you have to lose?

  • And I was going through such a difficult period at one point I was like, you know, that's

  • a good point.

  • So I did that and that kick started the meditation.

  • And then I experimented with other things like Headspace, which I have no vested interest

  • in.

  • So you start with 10 minutes a day for 10 days as a proof of concept.

  • And the way I'd encourage people to think about meditation –– because it can sound

  • very woowoo and I certainly was repelled by it for a long time –– is you are sitting

  • down say on a couch to practice observing your thoughts and feelings and emotions for

  • a very short period of time, so that for the rest of the day you are less emotionally reactive.

  • What this means is you are rehearsing.

  • You are training.

  • It's like going to the gym.

  • So let's say you're training for a sport.

  • Alright?

  • You're an athlete in X.

  • You go to the gym to do squats, to do this, this, and this so that when you get on the

  • playing field you can perform better.

  • It's exactly the same.

  • You're rehearsing and training for your day.

  • And then when you run into something that normally would trigger you, whether it's

  • a certain type of email, whether that's an employee who has a habit that drives you

  • insane, or you being behind in your schedule and then the line at Starbucks is longer than

  • you would like.

  • Whatever it happens to be, the things that would normally cause you to get really tightly

  • wound or explode or berate yourself or other people, you will then start to spot before

  • you have the reaction.

  • And then you say, “Okay, half a second of breathing.

  • Let me choose my response instead of being a hot held hostage to these loops and triggers

  • that we all have.”

  • So that has been enormously, enormously helpful for me.

  • And there are many different entry points.

  • You know, I mentioned TM.

  • That's one way.

  • It's not the only way.

  • Headspace, I think, is a fantastic option for people.

  • The ten minutes a day for 10 days, which is free, or you could listen to a guided mediation.

  • There are many good ones out there.

  • Sam Harris, who's also in here, has some fantastic guided meditations.

  • Tara Brach also has some really hypnotic awesome guided meditations.

  • Yeah, we have one.

  • We have a free one.

  • You can Google search Marie Forleo Free Downloadable.

  • It's a ten minute, it's –– because it's been –– similarly it's been absolutely

  • instrumental in my life.
