    67 - How To Optimise Your Environment

    67 - How To Optimise Your Environment

    Today Ben and Rob talk about how you can optimise your external environment as someone who probably is quite ambitious and wants to develop themselves.

    The principles that we try to apply

    Try to simplify to minimise distractions 

    Myth of multitasking 

    Out of sight out of mind

    Your brain is not a storage device

    Batch processing & automation

    When meal timing was all that mattered 

    Does it matter for fat loss or muscle building?
