#306: Discipline, Sex, Psychedelics, and More — The Return of Drunk Dialing

This episode is a rare exception to the rule -- unlike my usual long-form interviews, this is a drunk-dialing Q&A with you guys, which I’ve done a few times in the last few years, including for the celebration of the 100th episode of this podcast. In preparation for this episode, I solicited phone numbers from listeners who wanted to receive a call from me, and then I started drinking and dialing, answering questions and getting a little frisky along the way.

In this episode, I cover topics such as:

  • How Jocko Willink has made me more disciplined
  • My thoughts on sex as a “doorway to a higher perception”
  • My past experience with stimulants and psychedelics
  • How I determine if a project is working or not. In other words, how do I decide when I should persevere or quit a project and move on?
  • How I think about teaching
  • And much, much more!

Please enjoy this tequila-fueled Q&A!
