As we wrap up our intense discussion, we leave you with a compelling quote from Bruce Lee about the power of logic over emotional reaction.
Are you an expert, or are you just bullshitting yourself?
All or Nothing Mindset:
What is Deep Work?
James Smith on “Why Everyone Is Addicted To Jiu Jitsu”
Making a comment about your comparison to BJJ and Striking Arts (at about 1:30). I’ve trained both for a long time and i’ve been hurt way worse in doing BJJ. To be clear i’ve been hurt in both before but it’s always way worse in BJJ. BJJ is more “full contact” than most striking art. Just tired of those that train BJJ and are early on in their journey commenting and teaching on things they have not completed their journey on yet. I respect your opinion(s) but you can build BJJ up without pulling down other arts… just my POV.
I do LOVE what he has to say at about 8:30, about humility – the flight vs cleaning the mats.
From Jocko Podcast 392 with Peter Attia
If you want to find someone’s true age, listen to them. If they talk about the past and all the things that happened and that they did, they’ve gotten old. If they think about their dreams, their aspirations, what they’re still looking forward to, they’re young. — Peter Attia, “Outlive”

“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.
True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.
If words control you that means everyone else can control you.
Breathe and allow things to pass.” – @brucelee
