6-Notes on Sunday

Hi there!

Here is your weekly dose of “6-Notes on Sunday,” a list of ideas, products, episodes, quotes, exercises, and more that we believe are worth sharing.

A new book from an author we love 
Brene Brown researches some of the most important human behavior issues and when she shares the results of her studies it resonates. Her new book is titled Dare to Lead and we cannot wait to get our hands on it. Pre-order here

Give your coffee a boost — 
If you follow Tim on Instagram, you know he loves him some Bulletproof coffee – well, here’s a recipe for it from Laird Hamilton that we all have grown to love. You can find our recommended MCT oil on our Gear Page on the site and Laird’s Superfood Creamers as well.

Rocking Smoothies —
We have been loving smoothies and this blender is killer! We’ve also been adding in cinnamon and this organic turmeric.

Take some time out for good stories —
We’ve recently been told by multiple people to check out a podcast called Risk!, which has a subtitle of True Stories Boldly Told and also says in the show notes that if you like The Moth, This American Life or Snap Judgment, take a walk on the wilder side with RISK!

How mindfulness and meditation can boost performance —
In this article, a few elite athletes share how meditation helped them have more focus and overcome doubts. There are also interesting tools and exercises near the end of the article that we don’t want you to miss on how to stay in the zone and how to sharpen your attentional focus on the field.

The Man in the Arena —

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt

We were reminded of this quote by Michael Boyle in his article talking about how important it is to step up, speak up and perform in the arena.

Please give us feedback and offer suggestions by replying to this email or reaching out on Facebook or Instagram.

Wishing you an amazing week!
