Top 3 Takeaways from Ben Greenfield at The Optimized Life Mastermind with Cary Jack

Prioritizing Quality of Life Over Longevity

Show Notes

Do you want to optimize your life?

In this latest solo episode of the Happiest Podcast, I’m diving into the top three takeaways from an incredible experience with the one and only Ben Greenfield. If you haven’t heard of Ben, he’s a New York Times bestselling author, a serial entrepreneur, co-founder of Kion, and one of the top biohackers in the world. He’s also a devoted husband and father, and honestly, just an all-around great guy.

Ben and I recently hosted an Optimized Life Mastermind for our Happy Hustle Club members at his amazing compound in Washington. We spent three and a half days focusing on business, body, and mindset optimization. And let me tell you, it was epic! We delved into longevity strategies, biohacking secrets, and even family practices that Ben uses to live the most optimized life possible.

Want to know the juiciest insights from our time together? Here are my top three takeaways:

1. Business Mastery: The Power of Deadlines and Delegation

Ben is a master of productivity and focus. One key tip he shared was the importance of setting hard deadlines for your projects. He’s relentless about hitting these deadlines and ensures he has the time blocked out to meet them. This includes waking up early to write and making sure his team is effectively handling their tasks. Speaking of teams, Ben’s got a solid one, and his approach to delegation is a game-changer. If you’re looking to up your business game, start by setting clear deadlines and building a team you can trust.

2. Body Optimization: Cut Out the Bad Stuff

Ben’s fitness level is off the charts, and his advice is straightforward but powerful. He stresses cutting out seed oils, processed sugars, and alcohol to optimize your health. It’s basic but effective. He also touched on the importance of managing your testosterone levels, recommending starting with herbal remedies before considering hormone replacement therapies. Taking care of these fundamentals can make a huge difference in your health and performance.

3. Family and Relationships: The Legado Family System

This one blew my mind. Ben uses the Legado Family System to build a strong family legacy. It’s a comprehensive approach that covers everything from family values to financial planning. They have regular family meetings and even a family constitution! Seeing how Ben integrates faith and values into his daily life was truly inspiring. If you want to strengthen your family bonds and create a lasting legacy, this is a must-try.

If you’re as pumped as I am about living an optimized life, you won’t want to miss this episode. Tune in to get all the details and start applying these insights to your own life.
