Ted’s Takeaways

1. Let your results be your guide

If you are following recommendations from persons that are into personal development and you are not having measurable success in your life, then consider following an expert like Chris Friesen. Feeling good is important but being excited about working out is not the same as actually working out. Feeling good doesn’t change your bank account, your relationship, or whatever it is you are trying to improve in your life.

2. Be careful with biohacking information

Be cautious of where and who you are getting your information from. Don’t be fooled by good marketing and inaccurate information.
