Optimal Living: More Wisdom in Less Time
I’m a paid monthly OL subscriber and I listen to the the nutrient-rich short daily lessons every morning as I get ready for the day. Brian Johnson is making a better man out of me.
Thank you (especially for the philosophers notes)
Hi my name is Kreston Woods.
I’m still trying to figure out how to get on my feet in the coaching/fitness training buisness and you have found a way for me to read all the essential books and get the key concepts from them in much less time and more refined way. I will eventually go back and read each of them when I can afford to buy them all. But the philosophers notes truly are my new favorite listens. Keep them coming. I love to learn how to be my most optimal self
Love the plus ones!
I love how quick and powerful each episode is! The bite sized bits of information that I can immediately apply make me excited for each segment. Thank you for your constant example and inspiration, Brian!
