"But. You talk about several things when it comes to shrinking a battlefield. First of all, it's creating niche. If we've talked about at at at length already and then creating that person combining, we've talked a little bit about we can exhibit combined existing niches that can make them more focused and define niche. You also talk about reframing a reposition, but the one element that I really loved that you do is opposition. When it comes to shrinking the battlefield. So. Talk to us about. Using opposition as a way to shrink our battle because I found this fascinating. Yeah and I love this example. I'm really pumped that you asked about that one because there's a bunch of a bunch of ways to create a niche or combining reframing all this stuff, and they're all there on the book, and that's awesome. But the one that's one of my favorites to talk about is doing the opposite, right. So how do you shrink the battlefield? If you'RE GONNA choose to focus on a certain group of people or a specialized segment of your market or something like that? Like how do you? How do you choose the right one? Well there's a great example from Jackie Chan Right Jackie. Chan. Is this martial arts you know really really famous and martial arts, but he is very different from everybody else like if you grew up a Bruce Lee fan like he did. Bruce Lee was the legend of the icon like he will never be surpassed. And how do you grow up as young martial artists? In China, how do you grow up Bruce Lee Shadow and expect to make anything of yourself in that community and in that that line of work? So Jackie Chan looked at that problem and instead of getting discouraged, he looked at it gwent. How can I do the opposite of what Bruce Lee does. Okay. Well, Bruce. Lee. Is Like A mazing. Super Fast, invincible. Well, what if I did the opposite and I was more vulnerable immuno even and showed myself getting her like did my own stunts and like showed showed the real thing happening Bruce Lee's films are pretty straightforward. Right What if we did something comedic? What if we did something that was almost slapstick? So he starts asking themselves these kind of questions. Just how can I do the opposite of the person who is the dominant name or the dominant brand in my space ends up coming up with his own blend in crates, his own genre. Basically of this kind of con- comedic martial arts. I don't even know what you'd necessarily call it But he invents his own fighting style that goes along with that expands into movies, ends up being like one of the highest paid actors of all time. One of the biggest stars in the world. And it all started by doing the opposite. And we can do the same thing right whether you are the florist whether you are a brick and mortar. Business owner whether your real estate agent whether you're coach consultant, which is the world that Iran and more taking what you know think about you know again, contrasting with Gary v like if you're in that space and you WANNA teach people how to market their business. Good luck. Just going on being another Gary v because you end up just being overshadowed by him and delivering the same message to the same people. got. Gary. V. So what are they? What are they need you for? But if you go out and you do the opposite, it gives you a chance to cut through with a message that actually speaks really really deeply to a smaller group of people and plus fun like figuring out how do the opposite you end up coming up with some really fun and interesting combinations. He may end up creating a niche that you dominate for the next thirty years. It's really

"Because the name Bruce Lee Really of oaks, a lot of things for different people, but when people think about his. Life. How what his struggles fears, and all that I think that has been lost in today's narrative for regeneration now and so I wanted to look that myth, but unpack it in a way and so having that being my thesis, I went around sort of shopping it for a while, and really figuring out who I needed to talk to, and it wasn't until like maybe a couple of years ago, this was five years ago when I first came up with the idea, but it wasn't until a couple years ago. ESPN got involved in the project.

You couldn't wait to to put out there. I don't know necessarily specifics, but I think is kind of the overarching narratives who precisely was because you think of most people's entry points a Bruce Lee Story. They just assume he was always kind of big Hollywood star, or he was always this martial arts. Of I think a Lotta Times people take it for granted that he struggled a lot Hollywood that Hollywood. The nineteen sixties is different and same in many ways of Hollywood today right and your thoughts about kind of society, though the world that he existed in America that existed in nineteen sixties right, and I think that was kind of my broad approach into entering story, and then once I started talking to people that knew him that were part of his during that time. That's where kind of the specific stories in the understanding of his coming of age in America played into creating this mythology today, and so you know I. Think one of the things to try to be more specific answer question. Bruce has always been known as teacher. Right this teacher of philosophy of martial arts..

"Be Water" ESPN 30 for 30 Director: Bao Nguyen.
"From. nyu You received your MFA from the School of Visual Arts also in New, York City how important are those degrees to supplement your ability as director? I mean I, think for. You know film, school and Education, the most important thing I take away from it is like building a community and finding like minded people who love films and you kind of carry on that love after you graduated in your work together on your on your feature, your future projects and and I mean obviously the education is important, but I think the relationships you take away from it or more important now. Is there I mean I know? For those who see the documentary, they know kind of what influence you partially to really loving a certain aspect of Bruce Lee, but is there any other driving forces that really kind of? Propelled you where you are today whether it's a filmmaker or an actor or a movie itself. I remember seeing a hoop dreams when I was pretty young. I was about ten or eleven, and it was just A. He's the first time I really saw documentary like a feature length documentary, and it's such an epic story right also an intimate at the same time, and I think it's informing me of like the type of story said I'm interested in the type of storytelling I'm interested in and also kind of the power of sports in the drama of Sports, and and how you can use sports as a way to talk about bigger issues in society, and so I think that film definitely played a role in how I. How I became a documentary filmmaker and I mean it's not a directly to to be water I. think he can maybe see. Some of the piano correlation. Oh absolutely, absolutely and you know. You've done some really creative and really great projects, but we documentary like be water that you're connected. Do personally that you? Again for anyone that has seen it. For the thirtieth. The world seated at this point. You know you really have a fondness in a your linked emotionally to the person you're you're you're making the documentary on become something else at that point? Right because it's still such a beautiful work of art, but because of your connection because of the way Bruce Lee moved you. Does. It become something else at that point bow. In your for me when I'm making it film. Tired of want to infuse my own voice in the not literally. You don't hear me speaking as a narrator anything like that, but I think that films at I'm kind of drawn to are the ones that feel personal and honest and authentic, and you can really feel the directors hand. Especially in a film, we were talking about such an icon that maybe anyone else could have done a certain style of Bruce. Lee Fill of documentary about Bruce. Lee But I wanted to make sure that this felt like my film, and by kind of going deep into my roots my parents Vietnamese refugees. They left Vietnam on a boat. We're living in Hong Kong refugee camp for for six months and then. Went over to America the very similar story to Bruce's in terms of coming to America. And not having connections, not really having any money, and that was sort of the Bruce Lee that I felt like I didn't know too much. About Bruce Lee as the immigrant American as Asian, American as the other American. So, I tried to infuse like what lessons I learned from my parents, and for my own upbringing as a child of immigrants and use that to make the films feel personal and have that touch point in a way. So yeah that was that was always the intention and I hope people. Felt that kind of personal filmmaking style. Even though we're talking about an icon like briefly. Yeah, I can't even imagine what it's like. Because you talk very very early in a documentary about you know, it's the very first time you recognize yourself. Somebody on screen. That isn't stereotypical or lacking the respect. They deserve I. Mean I can't believe I mean it. Had to be an. You've answered this such a passion project just because of the effect man had on you and millions of others as well. Yeah I mean I could say that. I was in like one of those huge Bruce Lee fans at went out and collected everything and. Watched every single movie ten times over, but as a symbol, and as an icon for representation for kind of hero, and fighting for the underdog, definitely left a mark on me and again it was just trying to unpack that that that iconography that mythology that I felt. Everyone knew, but they didn't know the person, and and that being said I agree responsibility, obviously telling the story of someone like Bruce Lee but I started to think of it more as a privilege that I'm privileged to have the opportunity to tell lead story into. You know mess it up in many ways and I once. I understood it more as a privilege recognized. It made it less of a daunting task I

It really confused me one because why would you think you are a fan of mine and also think that I would agree with that? Or have any time for that? Too. I was like sort of like in my mind like sort of like I don't understand where that comes from of course thinking about the Asian Americans in my connection to a Bruce Lee comes up and so I really started out is just sort of like my love for Bruce, Lee. Way To go there. I'm a black guy who loves something Asian American. You know. And and as I was writing it, and this is what happens to be harbory works I just start to dig into my own love for it, and but halfway through I was like Oh. This is deeper than I thought. Like I have a career guy who's anti-racist and I'm looking at Brucie's life with Mike I had never framed him as an anti-racist 'cause. Even I was looking too much of the kicks and punches. Right really got deep for me as I was writing it and like, and then to sit and watch in. You know my talk about it. I'll get caught up like like Fisa fury that scene where he says we are not sick. Men always felt like it applied to me as a black kid. like it never was never like. That he's talking about some Chinese. Japanese. Not since I was like no I. Get that feeling as be feeling like the the oppressor cannot oppress me into thinking I am not good. And I was playing fisa fury as I was writing it and I really got caught up in it in his report. Outta me, and then I posted. It just like on medium which had never posted before dislike. I don't like I don't know who's GonNa WanNa read this I. Don't know what's going to happen. I'm just GONNA. Put it up and just sort of feel like I got it out of my system. And then I was really overwhelmed by all the Asian Americans. Who felt like it spoke to them because I really wasn't even writing it. I wasn't trying to convince asian-americans anything. Well that's the beauty of it because it was so like organic and natural, and then kind of flowed into all those heavy subjects that that that it just show that how much you know that you care about this subject, and also the empathy also for what was going on with us in so that was the first time I. Think there there is Kinda like you know ally, ship, or or censorship in this situation I think that one of the things which as an Asian American who has been really I think. Reflecting on myself on my community on the role that we stand in. At this moment. Reading that that a did two things one is, it may be very very consciously fact that. As much as you wrote it in reaction to people who are saying. Hey asian-americans have not stood for US wide. We ride from them. There is a sense in which it. It forced me off of my own privilege to start thinking. Where are we in that in that conversation and have we been doing the kinds I mean? The very fact that that Bruce Lee. Did his work here in America As somebody who went out of the way the color outside the lines very through figuratively and literally somebody who brought in. The African American community, the lat next community as some of his very first pupils for an art that hitherto had been seen as something. Purposely obscured right from from other populations of color the fact that he actually went out of his way to befriend and elevate people of a wide range of races, and especially I think embrace the black community early on as a community that he had shared struggle with is something which I don't think we. Even looking beyond the kicks and punches. Think enough about. and. For me, it is, it has been an extra is saying to myself. Are we doing enough and answering. No, we are not. So, I want to say come out. It was a very profound moment to me to read that essay well. Thank you?

"So what fun to talk to the director about these films Jalen, it's so nice to get this opportunity because you kind of get inside their mind and get new insight, I also love the idea of cream, bruce one on one. They must have. I must have lied to me. Tell me that they did. Please tell me that they talked about to focused in into serious the same with Bruce Lee. They weren't getting into any shenanigans. Law No! Do you. Know I'm glad you brought shenanigans right because this on my list of questions for bow, but I didn't WanNa. Ask Him is one point you know. Bruce was really like he was. He was a part of the seventies, and he was really a child of the seventy S he was. He was enjoying the seventies or something like that and I started as A. Bruce Lee get it in because he didn't about the way he dressed the way. He presented himself the charm that he had. I think he got it in. Let me, just tell you something. Tell me Bruce! Lee was invited to all of the COOKHOUSE who not get it twisted. Do not get it. Twisted. I was not front because he was on the show. We were getting a Bruce Lee black flats with no strings in them. we was getting in making the noon. The nunchucks we was doing that. We was actually kicking in practicing the moves. seriously. Jim Kelly Chuck Norris Bruce Lee like they he they had us into it, and then as a young basketball player when I saw. Kore- Cinder where Bruce Lee. Hours Heaven. Hamson Down Bruce walkover tool. A Captain Kicks Bruce Lee in the chess and least a term. That's one of the more iconic moments of my childhood, so because Bruce had that soul as I call it. And he spent time in the bay area, and you know always tell you Detroit and Oakland our cousins. Bruce Lee, being a child of the seventies. Maybe he enjoyed like Bill Walton Hippie Laddis. To. I think he is got that idea. He just seemed like he's done. He just seemed like he was really fun to be around. And it's also wanted hours. Love about these stories that about this all the time is..

Can you imagine bruce playing ball with Korean? But they were not what I mean one one aspect of of their relationship that we couldn't including the film that I wish we did. Is that when? When Kareem opened up about Bruce. He said that you know. Koreans greatest teachers in his life was John Wooden and Bruce Lee.

"We could be in how multifaceted we can be in just a how important it is to kind of like ten and not kind rely and succumb to the stereotypes in what people think you're supposed to be. Put one of the questions. I WanNa ask you sort of some of your film making decision in one of the things that stood out to me. The most is we see in so many documentaries, especially the thirty for thirty series, and you always sort of see the people in the interviews, and then he gets covered with be role in kind of goes back and forth from the very much the traditional way of doing it. What was what was behind the decision to sort of do it another way? Just SORTA who was speaking in the voice? You never really see the interviews or them till the end. It was really early on I wanted to do that because again. It's about living in Bruce's present time living the stories with Bruce instead of having someone talk about it in the past tense or make it feel nostalgic anyway. I mean I love all types of documentaries I love. Documentaries that had talking heads but I think they have to have a reason for it in for me when you're having someone who's in their seventies eighties. Bruce would have been eighty this year talking about a twenty year old thirty year old Bruce Lee. That's that's very jarring rate. And I wanted the film to kind of have this fluidity like water. You could say and never feel like you're being jumped out. Of the same time as Bruce, Lee and I think at the end of the failed one week you see spaces. We see Kareem today. We see Linda today. You also think about what would bruce look like today? Right a little bit. You think of exactly what I'll get euro exactly what I thought of exactly what I thought when I when I saw the images of the end. Can you explain for the people at home that? If, it went over their head. What the important term to Bruce Lii di water really meant. I, mean you. He learned it. Very early on in his life when he was trading with the mind and I think. It was he was. When he was young, he was a hard head. He was kind of this hooligan type of kid. And Martial Arts Gung Fu when Chun, they all helped form him into being more of a fluid, individual and not being so rigid not. Relying on past systems, understanding that things can change things. You can be flexible. You can be like water and I think because of this philosophy. He lives such a rich light because he was so open to meeting people from different cultures different communities again. He was growing up in America when he arrived in America. You lived in Seattle. He was his best friend was African American his other students were Hispanic American he married a white woman, and then he moved to Oakland. There's a big distinction between living in Oakland and San Francisco, and he was living in Oakland sixties, and that going to Los Angeles listen. You know teaching someone like Korean. He was just sue those relationships. You can see how like water in for me like the title of the cell. Is is relating to the other narrative thread film. The film is not just about loosely. It's about America. It's about the America that Bruce Lee lived in so water. Be there much of metaphor for America I think. America's ever fluid is changing experiment..

"What else do you have? From that Source FM fascinating is basically on strike until he came onto set. What else did you about that? There wasn't in the film. So I mean. You know he that that could be kind of like. Behind the scenes. Film Minded Code Right like routinely say. Enter the dragon is not being made because you're not gonNA, make it the right way. You're not going to use my voice. You're not going to be authentic to who I am as a person as a as a human being, and I think Bruce Lee always fought that battle is whole life, and I think a lot of people especially people color are fighting that battle in Hollywood and in the industry, because even though. Advocacy. Times have changed in progress. There's still a a battle being waged for our a representation on screen. Not just a I'm screen, but also behind the camera in terms of the stories that are being told in how they're being told so I think this is kind of. A good comparison that story Bruce Fighting for his words, his voice to literally be put into. Enter the Dragon and. We do that fight every day me living in a, it's not just about A. What story we get to tell with who gets to tell that story because I think it's so important in terms of representation having authenticity in eighty of representation that we get to speak from our own heart, if to speak for own experiences, and I think that's what Reu sleet was pushing for. He was never aside cake like in real life, he was never subservient. So why would he ever play that? Even with the Cato in Green Hornet? When he was playing a show last week, he had he was going to be that bad ass. You know psychic that he wanted to include more lines himself. He wanted to really show his his charisma and not just be subservient. And it doesn't help especially in our current climate when we have, somebody would have really powerful position in politics and has a megaphone. That's not bringing us all together is actually doing the opposite. And it. Goes to my next question of why you felt. It was important that he married a white woman. I think it was important in including the film. Obviously 'cause we're again. We're talking about nineteen sixties America any even today. Talking about interracial marriage might offend some people which is really surprising, so. You know you have. A Chinese man marrying a white woman that is that's kind of crazy for many people to think about in the sixties. And it, it's just for me. It's like. The. The film is not just about Bruce Lee but America that Bruce Lee was living in, and that's a very important aspect of it. The relationships that he's living in and Asian American, males are never seen as romantic leads hardly ever on screen so bruce. Lee Wasn't just like representing you. Know is in Americans onscreen, but representing them in real life and showing how different. We could be in how multifaceted we can be in just a how important it is to kind of like take charge, and not kind rely and succumb to the stereotypes in what people think you're supposed to be. This well put one of the questions I wanna ask you sort of some of your film making decision in one of the things that stood out to me the most is we seen so many documentaries, especially the thirty for thirty series, and you always sort of see the people in the interviews, and then he gets covered with be role in kind of goes back and forth from the very much the traditional way of doing it. What was what was behind the decision to sort of do it another way? Just SORTA speaking in the voice. You never really see the interviews or them till the end. It was really early on I wanted to do that because again. It's about living in Bruce's present time living the stories with Bruce instead of having someone talk about it in the past tense or make it feel nostalgic. Anyway I mean I love all types of documentaries I love. Documentaries, that had talking heads, but I think they have to have a reason for it in for me when you're having someone who's in their seventies eighties. Bruce would have been eighty this year. Talking about a twenty year old thirty year, old Bruce Lee. That's that's very jarring rate. And I wanted the film to kind of have this fluidity like water. You could say and never feel like you're being jumped out. Of the same time as Bruce, Lee, and I think at the end of the failed one week. You see these faces. We see Kareem today. We see Linda today you also think about what would bruce look like today? Right a little bit. You think of exactly what I'll get euro exactly what? I thought of exactly what I thought when I when I saw the images of the end. Can you explain for the people at home that? If it went over their head. What the important term to Bruce Lii di water really meant. I mean? He learned it. Very early on in his life when he was trading with the mind and I think. It was he was. When he was young.

He was his best friend was African American His other students were Hispanic American he married a white woman, and then he moved to Oakland. There's a big distinction between living in Oakland and San Francisco and he was living in Oakland sixties, and that going to Los Angeles listen. You know teaching someone like Korean. He was just sue those relationships. You can see how like water in for me like the title of the cell. Is is relating to the other narrative thread film. The film is not just about Bruce Lee. It's about America it's about the America that. Bruce Lee lived in so water be waters much of metaphor for America I think. America's ever fluid is changing experiment. It's evolving. My parents were Vietnamese. War Refugees left Vietnam on. A boat came to Hong Kong lived in refugee camp, and then moved to America and my mom. Consider yourself more American than Vietnamese now. That's that's the beauty of America that we can we can. Change the way we wish we wanna see it and I think there's these moments in the film that we talk about like the Chinese exclusion act. We talk about you know retaliating against African Americans in the civil rights movement, and I see these as kind of like rocks in American history and rocks in the film that Bruce again around right like the racism that he faces in Hollywood these are obstacles and like today you know given what's going on. America's hitting the same rock. I mean really crash against US route so I hope we find a way to get around it. That's really well. Put not sort one last question for you and. And when I was watching the film you know Bruce, Lee's voice was prominent throughout it as others, and also some about Bruce letters were read, and my question is. Were those the entire letters because it was always like two sentences. Are.

"Of how when I was young I. Always Wonder how Bruce Lee die. And I noticed in the piece that it necessarily didn't say it. was that intentional. I think for me. The film was always about like living in the present time of Bruce Lee right. We don't talk so much about the legacy and the impact is I. Think we all have back different entry point of what Bruce Lee meant to us, but when it when we're talking to the people who knew Bruce Lii who loved him, who were friends with him, were his students. That's a very specific story that no-one can kind of replicate, so I always knew that I wanted the film to be in the present moment of Bruce Lee, and even when we get to his death that Beth Phil monotone in many ways, because there's so much speculation about how he died, but when I talked to the people who knew him, and who were most impacted, obviously by his tragic death. They were like. You know he's. He passed away. We have come to peace with it and the coroner's report says this in. That's all that matters to us. Because we lost a friend, we lost father. We lost husbands, and I wanted to to approach delicately. Is I think a lot of times when we think of Bruce Lee's death, we get into the weeds. The conspiracy and we don't feel the tragedy of someone dying young of the loss potential briefly dying right because it's a tragedy. I wanted people to feel that impact when he died in feel like they knew him in that. They lost a friend when they're watching that moment. That's a really good point. It does sort of feel like the speculation around his death is such that it doesn't fully let us appreciate in value his life especially since he died so early and I also want to ask a quick filmmaking question like a round that death, there sort of these these sort of out of focus shots of trees. Moving sweeping shots and there was sort of a bird. What sort of made you choose those images for that part of.

What a masterpiece! Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. Well I WANNA. Start this where the film started with test footage of a young bruce leak getting camera tested for Hollywood film. Why did you side to sort of cold open with that? I think this is like a version of Bruce Lee that we're not used to seeing these kind of like Ansi anxious, not his confidence self right away doesn't know what's going on. This is his first screen test for Hollywood that he's been a part of even though in his past life in Hong Kong, he was a child star. At the same time the footage shows justice charisma as as the screen tests continues. You can just see him about to what this guy's asked. Right, onscreen and so I think it showed all the different layers that I wanted to tell the story, of Bruce from kind of Bruce's insecure, having vulnerabilities to his rise in tow like being this bad ass. Martial artists and I think within just that screen tests. There's that many layers. As a huge Bruce Lee stand myself. I applaud the work you did with this. Because I remember in my childhood making the ghetto noon Chucks or wearing the Bruce Lee shoes as we call them. Go on to see two movies and stuff like that and really mimicking a lot of what he did.

The dragon came out so I wasn't going to see them in the movie theaters with Mike Chinatown up in Harlem I was watching Bruce Lee on syndication on Saturday night television, and at the time I didn't know who he was really, but I just remember like as a little kid. I wasn't used to seeing faces that look like me unscreened right, and if I did see them, they were using negative. They were like a psychic or Like a servant or a villain sustaining someone like Bruce Lee with all his energy all his.

The film is kind of unpack that mythology in figure out how bruce turned into Bruce Lee. That's a really good point about underrepresentation and sort of suppression oppression, which obviously if some of the themes that our society's dealing with right now. What sort of parallels can you draw between this story Bruce's story and what you're seeing every day literally out of your apartment in downtown Los Angeles. He I mean it's it's obviously strange. Time In. It's crazy how? Relevant Filmar today, not just with what's going on with George Floyd while the racial injustices happening, but also with covid and I think. You know just like a week ago..

Finding Simplicity in Complex Times With Julia Hobsbawm
"Good day. Now welcome to episode two hundred sixty two of live happy now. This is Paula Phelps. And I'd like to thank you for joining us once again this week. Today's world has become increasingly challenging. So it's fitting that this week we're talking about simplicity. How do you find more simplicity in a complex world? Well that's complicated in this week. Author and social commentator. Julia Hobsbawm looks at how we can live a simpler more creative and productive life. Her new book the simplicity. Principle six steps toward clarity in a complex world looks at how we can become more focused and less distracted. It's something we can all benefit from learning. So let's hear what she has to say Julia. Welcome to happy. Now thank you for having me a pleasure to be with you. Will you have a wonderful topic to talk to us about? And it's a great time to talk about it too because our lives seem very complex. And so you're talking to us about the simplicity principle. I guess to start. Can you tell me what made you want to take on this issue? Yes it is a funny time. I think a good time to be talking about symptoms tedious. When all lives became both Bruce Lee simple through lockdown but also a lot more complicated with the ramifications and implications of life next began writing seven. Right is go around. The connected age in the digital age in all the complications of that role. And I wrote a book fully connected and that book really seemed to resonate with people that were worrying about overload and then I thought well what's next for the people concerned about now. I thought it was in the end that people feel they have almost limitless choices. Limitless possibilities windows within windows and APPS and meetings and opportunities and the world was becoming so full of potential that it was also getting really complicated. And I thought what is it that we really want. We want all these opportunities. We want to be innovative and entrepreneurial allies at least I do but equally we want to not feel like we're going a bit nuts and the truth is I think we all did feel even before corona virus. That life was just really getting complicated spell. I wrote the simplicity principle to really say. Can IT BE SIMPLISAFE Walk to simplicity? Look like what's wrong with complexity in the first place and you know what a successful at like and that's what I came up with the book and why is complexity so difficult for us well in some ways complexities natural human beings a curious and you only have to look the way we like sports. That have complicated rules or hobbies have intricate ways in which you do something. Even a jigsaw puzzle is complicated. The human brain itself as an organism as about as complicated objects if you like in the world so there's nothing unnatural about impact city and everything from viruses and weather systems to ecosystems all complex. The problem I think comes down to the fact that the human being that we own all inside systems and jobs digital worlds. We're actually a bit more basic. We need sleep. We need dressed. We honked overload our brains without stressing out tuning out venturing out. And when we do that things happen which might not make light operate smoothly in other words. You want your pilot to fall asleep at the controls because they're exhausted or you don't want somebody to miss. As arguably authorities have missed the signs of endemic coming because s what the systems to warn each other and take action. Were too complicated so really. What I'm saying is at the very least. We need to balance on the spectrum. Between what is simple uncomplicated? But in an ideal world we would also give the human body and the human mind more of what we now know that needs which is simple straightforward reset nut chewing respecting the complexity respecting. That things are not straightforward. This is not a book about being simplistic. I think of things at simplistic is a bit like it's stupid. You know him wants to be stupid but simplicity is actually what sophisticated and the person who taught me. That actually was the late great my Angelo. Who I have the pleasure and privilege of working alongside for a good few years when I was a lot younger. And you want me to keep it simple. And she taught me that when you can connect with what you want and what you're Abou- and what's real and what matters sat is smart but it might also be simple as what I've tried to create is a bit of a blueprint for how to get to that simple. It's right in the middle of everything that super super complicated and one thing that makes your approach so unique and so effective is. There's a lot of books at tells. Here's how to simplify. Here's what you need to do but yours isn't just about that. You really look at how the world can open up for us when we live a simpler life all of that. So can you talk about the research that you did to discover these result? Yes I wanted to write a book. That was a like a bit of a business book on a business woman. And I'm a business writer and so I wanted to give it a magic number. Because lots of the best business books do say who it intense steps seven steps in the four ways in the and so on and I want to really structure it so that it was incredibly useful but I also wanted to a homage if you like to the philosopher and all of we're on a quest to find meaning and I think more and more we want meaning in our lives and so I thought how do I do this and so I alighted on the idea that I would write about simplicity and the human brain I would dig into the research around. Neuroscience and present some case studies at pupil could relate to as some data that says. Look this is why the human brain needs to keep it simple but I would also structure the book a little bit like a cross between a business book recipe. Frankly so that. If you like may acquire impatient to say all right I buy it. I'm into simplicity versus exte- when the line begin how do I stop that? It would be easy to pick up. The book died in and to find something within five minutes of. Reading the book that you could relate to and do that's what I want and to feedback Sephora has been quite good because I think that most of us now want just quick wins. You know we want hacks and simplicity as well as wanting to look at the deeper meaning and I think the coronavirus crisis is a really good moment to reset and rethink. What are we wanted to? How do we WANNA live? How's it going to be

Alicia Silverstone Talks Parenting
"I've heard that he's a super super kid as well. He's very chill. He's doesn't have too many tantrums. And also your way of parenting is is very kind as well. I'm always I have three boys and they're wild. They're also within three years of each other and I find that sometimes it's really hard to teach them not to kill each other without yelling at them. So you're not having three boys and three years. What are your some other some other tips tricks up? I mean I will definitely say I have no idea what it is to have more than one child. I have one child so I you know maybe if I had another one everything that I'm saying we go out the window but I don't think so because I think that while he's super chill in his soul like he's really he's such a good little guy so sweet and loving. He's also a wild animal beast. Because he's like Bruce Lee in the kitchen. I'm like I'm trying to cook. And he's Bruce Lee. He's just watch you know he's he's he's never taken a class in his life. He's just like chopped kicking like going crazy so I think he's really athletic and really strong and really awake Really Alive and not one. Part of him is suffering from this food. Choices or lack of protein is people would say when everyone's having too much protein. Our kids are having the right amount of protein protein for your body. So he's getting everything he needs. There's zero sign of any deficiency. You know he's really doing well but in terms of how I speak to him. You know we really communicate so well and yeah. There's never been a need for me to yell at him. I remember one time. We are the pool and this was a long time ago. I think it was that we are having friends over some kind of little party and he. I said something to him because I think he splashed me or something and I said no thank you and whatever I said I said I think he hurt me back on it. You know how they always elbow you. I mean I'm constantly being elbowed in the BOOB. You know need in the chest. I mean everything. I'm just abused by his body use. No me too but whatever it was he did something that made me have a gut reaction of like no and he goes to me and he I saw his face drop and he was just like mummy. You yelled at me. I said I yelled at you. Baby I don't think you know what a yell is because I hadn't even barely raise. My voice. Slept for a hand felt like a lot because he's not used to it. Yeah and he goes. You were so serious. I said I spoke with a serious voice right. He said Yeah I said why do you think that is he? Goes because you want me to stop. It hurt me. I just wanted you to understand it hurt and it was my reaction. I that's not a yell my love. I don't Yell at you yell at me practice yelling you want to hear what a yellow but so so. I put all you have to say to him. Honestly I've always. There was a moment where we had to serve. When they're so young that you have to sort of hold them down her second like hold them till they come down and you're just go. I know baby. I know you're so upset right but as a other than that like all I have to say to him is no thank you and he goes. Okay Mama and sometimes I have to repeat myself. You know like bear please. I asked you to do this. Can you do remember and he goes. Oh Yeah and they don't forget again on the way there he forgets because these eight. That's amazing but no it's really note. There's no yelling. How do you hold that up with having twenty four hour seven day a week exposure n n I know you I mean I? It's you've had a lot of practice with it. Which I think is the is the most I mean your your mental pathways. Primed for patients and soothing. This so curious for so many MOMS by organ. Listen to this and be like I want. I want to be them. Yes in but I'm just so frazzled. All the time teach will I do? Think that the The most important foundation part of this whole thing is Mama sleep right zone Mike if I don't get a good night's sleep because I didn't eat as well as when I eat perfect food. My sleep is perfect. I wake up Mike. Bring it. What do you got? I'm ready right but if I don't eat well and then I don't sleep well. I am so extra sensitive and I'm really sensitive person to begin

The Adoption of Cryptocurrency
"I wanted this like so think. Last last week we talked about adoption over that was probably the prior week in in all like there's always a main theme of the show in. It's just weird. That like everything that we said would happen is happening. But it's like we're fighting the happening of it. That's what you mean by that. You said you said that before. We started hearted added to what you mean by the. I don't know what you mean by just now what do you mean for example. I said that you know Many many moons ago we said that You know mining is going to get to a point where we're going to see really strange. Entities Gidon into the mining game name because if now is a path to profit for them right and we. We talked about a month ago or a month and half ago about like certain states. In Russia Russia are like saying a state sanctioned mining who can hook in a straight up to the nuclear power plants. The nuclear power plant was commodity mining. Yeah and then in Iran. They're basically saying like hell. Yeah mine mine away. Because we don't like sanctions and that's clearly happening but there's not much other nation states can do about it at this point. It's just it's just happening. And you know in the US in Wyoming there's now to municipalities that are sanctioning mining and kind of giving them a free go and giving them money to build more mining farms ends overseeing Komo And then you know for for for just felt like years of my life. We talked about institutional money coming into the space in. Its here now. It's actually building the foundation of where the price goes. Now take that what. What what metrics say what Beck search tell you that institutional money is? He's here now like why ever say walking every single month coin based releases a blog that says look at how much our institutional volume is growing in Corolla Colonel Lot. It's Paul W on the growth is correct that like the rate of growth is great but the overall amount across the entire ecosystem because this is still really small so a drop in the bucket compared to like traditional finance like we cannot stop realizing that that's the case we're moving in the right direction for their a fast but we're still small. I get that but right now comparing comparing this space to traditional finance is is a exercise in futility I think it's an exercise in futility because that's not the end game of the space right now we're kind of shoehorned shoehorned into having to compare ourselves to a dollar or a euro or yaw or ruble but that's not the end game of this never been the. I'm game of the in game of this this for this to be the line in the sand that things are compared to i. Don't I don't know about that. Why I mean why? Because that was the whole impetus of like hey. We don't need those systems when we could just use bitcoin. We don't need those systems when there's a network of smart contracts that could serve those systems everything should be compared to this new truth and not that other truth that that's kind of the in game if it's not the in game. This is just a cute side project for somebody. Body like Jeff Bezos to make a lot of money off of because that's not the game off off off it off. Yeah I gave you that. There's a little bit of that in terms of like eventually. Hopefully this becomes the standard that people build on and relate themselves else to including Fiat like nations-led currencies. I believe that's already happening like you see like a river. We interviewed the Guy Bill de decentralized market or decentralized them exchange and he said that the coolest thing happening for us right now is that small nations are actually using the lighting network to finance themselves and we can call. We'll be excuse me we're GONNA be elitist incites it's microfinance but they're doing these transactions at subsidy to get a few dollars in their pocket to fucking buy bread like. That's that's an inkling of what we spoke to many many moons ago in. It just doesn't feel like I know institution money's in their gym and I hooked up with trading view which is like okay if you're one of those guys that wears the three P. suits and does coke in the bathroom at lunch. You're probably overusing TRAE. You're getting like in Doug. I'm not judging you for doing coke understand looking at that many numbers you gotta be spry gotta eat a Nice Bagel. Some coke took a job that will but of the saying that everything we spoke of is now here and I don't think everything is it's starting to be here. Why do you feel like we're fighting it? Why are we like? What makes you think we're fighting it? Because I don't it's like for example we we ranted and raved about about side chains. We got him now the going. But then everybody's like l. that's a fucking federated blogging blahdy Blah. That's a piece of Shit Shit and I'm like it's not though there's like five major exchanges doing very high volume bitcoin transactions in that aside chain that is audible. Now yes it's federated but that's literally something we rant and rave about in its here in. It's working and now people you're like will man arguing school. Buses are painted yellow and blue. And it's like fuck you guys one at school buses so safer for the kids. They're all one color but you're mad because they're blue and not yellow. What the fuck a little over the top? I would say there's A. There's a few things things that contribute to that one is Like this ridiculous infighting that's happening thing between everyone that's inside the space based on what project thereon against the projects that do something similar in a slightly different way but basically you covering the same issue and this like the venom that could spread that gets. That's under the guise of trolling. But it's really just I you know US versus them. Mentality of everyone tried to the same thing. I feel like most people who are deep in the weeds. Have the people were deep in the weeds up becoming a lot of like the people other people in new entrance look up to and into being influencers whether they want to or not and there's just like venomous US versus them infighting that's that's detrimental to the space. As a whole and of time. I think people have lost a lot of the initial ideology of why we're doing this. Or what the end goal was and they make compromises and concessions to try and get something out the door in marketing push go a little hyperbole. What they're offering as opposed to like what they're really doing and and vitually the technology will get better so that it'll make them obsolete to like? I think a lot of the things we have now is because the technologists technologists and scale well enough not fast enough. You don't have the Innovation Shit to like do it. The way we want to make these interim companies that do it the way we can that makes a lot of compromises like for instance just like coin basis so big because the most the technologists and scale and so you have to have these these centralized things that sit on top that allow the people who want to use the stuff to use it at the convenience they want but ah at a more constrained set of like trust and delegated responsibilities like that and we're like well that's not. That's not what I signed signed up for when I enjoyed bitcoin and people are coming in. It's like why Jordan bitcoin big money who gives a shit say it. It's getting bigger and you're getting more people who have different a different views or cares and mixed with people building things that make concessions because they have to get get something out the door and then there. Oh Jeez that are trying to build something that doesn't make concessions but it doesn't work very well but they have a bunch of funding from early days and they're like well what do you do it like. There's so many different things going on. But it's gotten so much bigger like if we were to look back where we started. I if we woulda to had all of this back then maybe we would have been right and we were saying like it's just around the door like adoptions just around the door saying that when we started waited like deductions about to happen. Guys it's just right there. Were almost there just a few more things and it's been five years. We're still like we're actually really. They were so far away. It's the things that get adopted. This is one the things that I've I've finally come to peace with the things that get adopted. Have a ridiculous a torrential amount of funding. Let's just about like crooked. There was this there was this camp. There was a policy like down the street from the Wright brothers doing the same thing but the Wright right brothers older sister was basically financing their entire marketing campaign literally created a newspaper just to talk about their shit and distributed it within the cities and this update fuck man like weakest lie to like. We're doing the same shit. Where'd you learn that? I had to watch the documentary on it when I was in college. How's my engineering degree? We had to write a documentary in report. Because you know there's always that one professor dislike you will watch a movie about my fucking Hebrew and write a report. What about it so I can tune with my core values will euro year? I'll do the same thing. We're going to be derided book reports fucking Bursley like like. You're teaching a class on finance. You shut the fuck up. Bruce Lee knows everything about finding really lots documentary But Lega and then the same thing basically happened with Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison right the same exact thing. Thomas Edison is an bodied him out because marketing and money and the government like Thomas. Edison fucking politician Bro. I got this new electricity to well. How about this and The thing that spawned everything. We're talking about. Do you mean bitcoin. It didn't have all too crazy marketing and backing to get to be the thing. That's mainly adopted at this entire space. Very true it's actually the first thing in his street. St Paul One of the first things in history that that is probably the case. Like it's almost the exact opposite that's very true so it has to be like a reversion has got to a certain point everything that builds off of it kind of goes back in the old ways. Because that's a there's I don't think there's anything in the CRYPTO currency space. That will redo what Dick wanted because the cats out of the back right like you can't you can't redo proof of work that way it's going to get co opted to early because there's too much attention attention and understanding and experience and and and money in the space to not co Ogden. If there's a bill you could've you could've eagerly screwed things up in the early days if there was enough money attention and resources a dedication to doing
Matthew Polly on 'Bruce Lee: A Life'
"Talk Bruce Lee with Matthew polly. The book is Bruce Lee. We live by Matthew polymath. UGALI joins US now. I love this book I knew I was GONNA love it. I love your story which I wanNA share with our listeners. At the end of this. Because you're about is unique it guys. It gets But Bruce was somebody is I've seen in in some of your lectures who became more famous. This guy's pursuit of fame and fortune. which was clearly a driving driving factor in his success unfortunately he died before he understood the iconic status that he would reach Although that was starting to happen certainly back home and then and carried over over here so just to set it up for the listeners. Bruce Lee born November twenty seventh nineteen forty in San Francisco which I know will surprise. People his father was a theater performer. A comedic actor with his own amazing story where he was singing outside of a restaurant and some travelling theatre groups saw him and then took him in and he traveled with them His background ground isn't the one hundred percent Chinese. As you mentioned you had a Dutch Jewish grandfather which chain who changed his name so that was kind of hard to figure out. I know for years. There's people thought he was a German descent as well. That was not the case. It's actually English in that led to a bunch of problems that he was not a hundred percent Chinese but he was a child star. Matthew and I think that's kind of the foundation of for those of us that didn't understand it. His father was a performer and Bruce's a performer. For a very long time at a very young age twenty films by the age eighteen eighteen. How much do you think that kind of set up his own aspirations for himself once he started travelling going back to the United States? I think that's the key I found in researching the book because the image of Bruce's this martial arts master who kind of accidentally gets into movies. It's almost as if he's the real person onscreen as opposed to an actor playing characters and when you realize that. His first appearance was when he was three months old and his career starts in earnest at six. And you see him play all sorts of roles that have nothing to do with Kung Fu movies. You realize that. He was an actor following in his father's footsteps and in many ways I think he was driven by that kind of Eto Eto conflict to outdo his father who was quite famous in Hong Kong when he was growing up it. was you know anyone that's trying to do this. This kind of stuff to become famous right. Hey I wanna be a big movie star. You have to be wired a certain way and him having that kind of success early on and he was actually like would incorrect me at any point throughout this offer anything but he was he was starting to have some major roles there where he was he was a star so I think he wants. He goes to the United States. We're going to into here. It's almost like look. I expect to have the same level of success as observed may have sounded at that time. That's right I think it gave him a real confidence confidence and some would say arrogance that he was somebody who was sort of fawned over from a very young age he was on said everyone. Buddy was cute. You know by the time. When he was ten he was he started in a very successful movie then? His career took a little bit of a dip but the last film Within the orphan was a huge huge hidden was the first film that ever played in an international film festival. So Bruce Lee thought of himself is an important person. He was a celebrity in Hong Hong Kong and so when he came to America he didn't feel like somebody. Just knock off. The boat was desperate to like just survive. He thought he should be a big deal here. Too Who and I think he needed that because the kind of racial barriers face were so high and it'd be hadn't had that kind of fundamental competence. He never would have achieved what he did so before he leaves for the State's he's in school. He's a terrible student. But and I cannot express this enough in you. Hammer it in the book and this is something that I kinda like. This was not some fake martial arts guy that maybe we grew up with in the eighties. Nineties that Bruce Lee was legitimate streetfighting. Getting bad ass. That would fight anybody. And he was training Would would not necessarily different styles. It was more traditional styles in it mon who was somebody who would become famous himself or was famous at the time. I people didn't want to train. When can you share with us? Just how real of a Guy Bruce was and that when he was much more concerned with fighting almost anyone who wanted to fight him even if he wasn't winning more than he was trying to be a student some pretty boy on on film. That's right. Hey what's interesting is from a very young age. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and he was the kid who was always going around saying you you got you got trouble with me like he was starting fights he wasn't this wasn't self defense. This was self offense and the only reason he took up martial arts is because he got into so many street fights he finally found the guy who was better than on him and this guy studied under if mon the style of Wing Tongue and Bruce Lee only took it up because he wanted to be better than the guy who had beaten him and a fight because he couldn't couldn't stand the idea that he wasn't the Best Street fighter in the neighborhood and so- martial arts him with simply an extension of streetfighting. It wasn't the other way around. He wasn't bullied kid got picked on and started studying martial arts the kind of classic tale that we're all sympathetic to. He was a genuine sort of rough around the edges. Tough Guy who'd like to start things off and martial arts. was an extension of his sort of aggression And in fact he was so aggressive that the only reason he ended up going to the states wants because the police were going to arrest him. If his parents didn't do something about his constant streetfighting yet did he. Did you know that there's different pieces of great going through stuff and then reading the book and like man. Bali really cleans it up as much as you possibly could. But did he was he actually was was there a hit on him from the triads for beating up like the son of a gang member. That's yes I think that the story that One of his friends from a high school tells Unfortunately that friend tends to tell tall tales And he's the only one who says it so I think what happened was that he he beat up somebody who was important but not a try at number because in general tried members settle things themselves. They don't go to the police for so Basically a he beat up the kid of a well to do family who didn't have access to thugs to sell it themselves and so they went to the police. Did he pull a knife on teacher he did. He had a teacher the PE teacher used to when they were running around the track would take a along we'd essentially long switch grass and switch the kids on the back of the legs if they were going to slowly And it hurt. And and they didn't like it but Bruce Lee brought a switchblade in his pocket his shorts and one day when the teacher whipped him he turned around. Flip the blade open and charge the P.. Teacher who immediately ran away and Bruce Lee was chasing across the field the PE teacher with a knife in his hand so this isn't like like he was kind of a bad boy. This is the genuine article. Yeah absolutely so nineteen fifty-nine he goes to the states he graduates I believe a technical high school. He enrolls in Washington Drops out not immediately from from time. Line that I have. But but what was going on with him kind of his his moved to the United States his thoughts. I know he's working in a restaurant but now he's practicing martial arts arts and he's kind of entering that first whether or not people thought it was bullshit not because I think there's some real truth in the book where it's like. At times he could have been a little annoying with his philosophical Stuff but he's clearly figuring himself out to these transitional years before we get to kind of the Hollywood chapter and understanding how important he is a martial arts. Yes so what's fascinating about. His story is when he got to America he he he had that kind of instant. Almost instant immigrant turnaround story. Where he he decides? I want to be a success here. The way my life was going in Hong Kong was bad Leading towards the dark place. How can I change this so so? He didn't become a student but he came a much more dedicated student. He got into the University of Washington. He Fell in love with philosophy And took that up as one of his main interests But I think the more important thing was he because he came from Hong Kong. which at that time? It's not a major film industry with basically like the Nigerian film industry like it was popular in the region but no one else watched their films. He never thought thought it was possible to be an actor in the states and so he decided that the way he was gonna make a living in America wants to teach Kung Fu to everyone in opening sort of chain of Kung Fu Kinda CTO JOE's across the country to be the Ray Crock of Kung Fu and so it was at the University of Washington where he realized he could get Caucasian students interested in signing up for his classes and that made him sort of the first. I come through instructor to teach a kind of non Chinese audience. And that's what's interesting is that he mentally gave up the idea of being an actor for about four or five years but it ended up catching up with him anyway so for awhile. All he thought about was martial arts and martial arts instruction and man that led him to rejoin his acting career. There's some really revealing stuff about how ahead of his time. He was when you think about nutrition. The exercises working with weights. I mean this is somebody who was was as wiry sinewy as as you I can imagine is as far as his physique but it wasn't all genetics like he was eating these basically smoothies before they were called smoothies. Right like peanut butter bananas eggs even raw hamburger meat and he would just drink these things and he was doing all sorts of exercises working with dumbbells. Concentrate like at this point. It feels like this is when he's deciding that whatever I'm going to be. I'm going to be physically tuned as perfectly like he feels like the first of the closest thing we have to an actual superhero as he's learning his craft in obviously supplementing with everything that he can get his hands on that he thinks is healthy for him. which again felt like very? Maybe you could say it's the sixties a lot of people doing that kind of stuff but at least reading this stuff. I'm like I feel like I see these posts from girls doing dead lifts on Instagram all the time and he was doing and sixty. That's right well what what's interesting is. It was such a niche thing in America the sort of weightlifting craze and some of the magazines that were the equivalent of say muscle and fitness at that time. But Bruce who's instantly gravitated towards those and it would have been easy. You know took thirty or forty years before that overtook American culture in general But at that time time for such a small group of people who are into protein shakes vitamins but bruce immediately gravitated towards I think partly because he grew up. He almost died as a a a baby During the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and so he grew up physically more frail than the other boys and this it's always bothered him and I think he saw this as a way to make for a childhood deficit but then clearly he realized something that no other martial arts at at the time realized. which is this kind of weightlifting? Regimen could really enhance your skill level. in the same way that athletes of that era didn't lift weights alert. Do any of the things that they do now and so he was really kind of on the cutting edge of the modern
Kale Yeah, He Did It!
"The long awaited day is finally here and for those of you who have been listening and following the podcast and stay one. You know that joe inga bronx firefighter has come an enormously along way to be toned up at the starting line today in six months he has figured out how to navigate eating plan strong wrong and staying plan strong in what i would consider the most hostile environment on the planet which is a firehouse where he is surrounded rounded by foods that are off plan accrue guys who are less than enthused about his food choices so i've gotta give joe major major kudos it has been super exciting to cochin and watched joe from the sidelines as he's grown and matured and and now ultimately decided to own this plan strongly style now before i share the actual triathlon with you today today. I want to invite you to drop in on a recent conversation that i had with a plan strong brother. His name is james lightning lightening wilkes and he and i talk about protein and specifically what this lifestyle does and eating this way <hes> <hes> can do to fuel your performance and i think it will help explain to you a little bit why joe and for all of you at home why you're able to do a a triathlon a five k. a. marathon and recover so well for those of you that don't know james is the producer of the much anticipated upcoming film the game changers it is gonna launch <hes> globally in over two thousand theaters on monday a september sixteenth and it is going to be nothing short of a game changer. James is a former m a fighter later turn plant strong crusader and as you're going to see in the film he discovered the truth about plants while he was recovering from two you need injuries that took him out of the ring for several months and what he learned launched him on a quest to expose the most dangerous myth on the planet and in the process james has become one of the greatest experts on protein and the power of plants in the world. Let's listen in. I think that <hes> one of the things that you address. It's probably the primary thing is what i think you you guys have dubbed the world's most dangerous myth what is the world's most dangerous myth well. I think the underlying with the most dangerous myth is real men eat meat. There's there's all these myths above that you need me for protein or too strong strong to be healthy but especially in that male demographic that real many meet methods is really strong. <hes> <hes> and i mean you look at your her year. Background is mixed martial artists. <hes> probably one of the most masculine subliminal you know face to face combat sports and here you are you you get injured and now you go on the search for the truth and nutrition following. I think some of the principles that you learned from from bruce lee right exactly i mean you know he was always in search for truth and combat which i was on the same path right and his philosophy was research experience absorb what is useful reject what is useless and add what is specifically around raleigh just listening to and this is what i used to do as a listen to what was written about in bodybuilding magazines fitness magazines or online you really got to cut through all of that and start looking at the research wjr and when you look at the research is really quite clear. Especially in the last ten to fifteen years has been a better understanding of the components that are in animal foods that are bad for you and the components plant foods that are beneficial <hes>. It's really very clear that are applying based is optimal not just the health but also athletic performance. I think one of the one of the great saying i heard originally from you was to drop the the bro science right that you're going to hear at the g._m. Yeah you're gonna hear all sorts of stuff at the gym but that's just again stuff people have read online and then <hes> perpetuated in the gyms so what what's bro science. What are some of the things that these guys in the gyms are are being told well one of the biggest things obviously is you know how much protein you need but more specifically it's like weady protein protein from and there's this really strong myth and this pro science that you have at protein from animal foods whereas in reality you know all protein originates implants can't animals are just the middleman and basically animals are doing you a disservice. They're taking all of those beneficial nutrients that you could be getting and in return giving you all of these inflammatory molecules so it's all about the package right you can get protein in animal foods. You can get a protein implant foods the original source but the package which it comes with fiber fell late <hes> these antioxidants versus an animal foods. You've got these inflammatory compounds like <hes> t._m._a. Oh and agee's new five g. All these things that it was fun to learn about these lost sort of ten fifteen years in the literature heme iron he mind yeah exactly you say him. I say him <hes> yeah so we're starting to realize that even the he minded self is inflammatory and even the animal protein protein the amino acid profile of animal foods is also yeah. I think what is so fascinating to me. Is that in america erika. We've had the discussion about good fats bad fats. We've had the discussion about good carbs. You know kinda bad carbs but really what's never been put on. The table is good protein. Bad protein is just like well protein. You can't get enough of it. The only way to get it is from animal products vary products and it's like that's why to me. It is truly the world's most dangerous myth because everybody's convinced that you know if <hes> if i don't get enough protein amana wither up i'm adine ivine <hes> or i'll be hospitalized for protein deficiency in you. I mean you you guys delve into that in a beautiful a film it's not just the protein is when you start eating like that. You're reading obviously animal foods which are the leading cause of of death in this country in the western world up primarily due to what people are eating so it's not just the proteins that package and everything that people are eating so the leading cause of death in the western world a priority caused by what people eat right and so it's killing more people than anything else and it's also really bad for the planet and also you'll the animals also dying as well so it really is the world's most dangerous man i could not be more excited about the game changes film. I know it is going to move the needle and helping people wake up to what is marketing hype in what is factual actual if you think about joe and the overhaul that he has done in his life the idea of training for any athletic feat seemed virtually impossible people at the beginning of his journey he had zero energy he had tried and failed numerous times to adopt a regular fitness regime in the the past but he would either injure himself or he be so sore for a week or more that he would then abandon the idea and move on but during our time together he was able to consistently put one foot in front of the other and his fuel source was so clean and plan strong long that he has not had any setbacks along the way and his recovery time has been accelerated immensely so when thinking about joe's joe's experience. I want you to now imagine professional athletes. If joe can train and get stronger in recover faster while on a plant strong diet just think what that could mean for these professional athletes well wait until you see the game changers because we show on on the big screen real impactful and visual results with some pretty reluctant experimental subjects including pro football players yes and with my help a group of new york city firefighters from brooklyn. Now let's turn this over to james and hear what he he has to say about what he's learned about blood circulation and how it's affected by what we eat you another thing to me. That was so brilliant about the way you laid out. The game changers was what you did with these n._f._l. Athletes the receivers for the at the time the miami dolphins and you were able to show again what can happen with with your blood in just after eating a a meat vate meat-based meal versus a veggie based meal <hes> <hes> can you talk a little bit about that. Show i mean so that you can draw the blood offer meal and separate it out using a centrifuge and it's called post-prandial post-prandial i._p. May which means fat in the blood after eating and you can really see a difference when the when there's not much fat in the blood is sort of looks like olive when he separated out and when they found the blood it looks much more like elmer's glue in so <hes> so once translucent right and when you can't see exactly and so with the animal animal based foods you can see within an hour or so and then getting locked up for six or eight hours you can see that the the plasma in the blood when you separate out the red blood cells from the plasma very cloudy and when the happens reducing endothelial function. It's been up to fifty percent on ultrasound. You're going to see reduction of the arteries on dilating openness much which means less blood which that oxygen must nutrients to the muscles and all the organs in the body so you just not functioning as well right the plant based meals. Don't have that effect in the doctor that helped you. That was dr robert vogel. Who's the co. Chairman woman is the coach of the cod clues <hes> committee on cardiovascular health right right. I mean again incredibly powerful scene and i'm just will open up. I think people's is tremendously another thing that we did and this was utilizing myself as we went into a firehouse firehouse right right in <hes> in new york city and i think we had about thirty five thirty five new york city firefighters and we wanted to show them what what happened with their weight their blood pressure and their lipid panel in just seven days right. I mean you've been getting those results over and over again right outside of that just keeps each replicating itself. You go plant based for a week during this whole plant based foods and you're seeing a drop in allie-allison you're dropping total cholesterol improved blood blood pressure dropping triglycerides. It's you know so if you didn't if the experience hasn't been done and it hasn't been tested you would think it's almost unbelievable to happen in such a short short period of time. It's amazing how your body has the ability to heal itself and much better when you're putting in the right fuel. So why did you in. Joseph and louis decide that doing this with a bunch of firefighters would be good for the film. I think it's a great group of rio brioni meet with you know like we talked about before and you know so firefighters athletes soldiers those types of people that traditional additional sort of male role models and so we thought it'd be a good group and you. You are <hes> going out to that talking. Put him on that trial a great thing to film and i think it it worked out really well yeah yeah well. I was honored to be part of it. Thank you for that
'Be Like Water' is Your New Mantra
"Be like water making its way through the cracks so my two cents on that is to really fight to be malleable in life with the good with the bad and i have had my share of the good and the bad <hes> personally professionally on my own with my spouse with my family. Many of you have as well so that's the challenge right so water. We've seen it look at the rain. It comes down your sidewalk goes into the cracks at finds worded get somewhere through the odds of falling from the sky thousands of feet in the air hitting your sidewalk to finding a path to go down the cracks but it finds a way in a lot of the times in our lives. It is supra warming just like a huge rainstorm where it's like. Where's that water to go that overflows the cracks and and you know it'll be hard at times. Sometimes it'll be crystal clear. I've had times recently with my children have a twelve eight and six year old boys. Sometimes it's super super heart of where that water with emotions going to go because it's it's super full because of what is going on whatever situation is sometimes. It's like hey look at them. They're upset. They're scared they don't understand. Let's let's bring get down. Let's let's talk through this. Let's work through it. Let's be like water rights as a personal thing sue professionally same thing right. Something could be going bad could be going off the rails at work whether you're on the street wearing those cargo pants and boots whether you're in a cube farm. It doesn't matter stress levels rules vary. There's different things that bring it up but the thing is how do you look at that situation. How do you look at those around you and how do you adapt to their face in their body language and how they're talking to you in the crack other voice or the fear in their eyes when they don't know what to do. You're there because they called nine. One one be like water give but adjusted the object and shout find a way around through it powerful stuff bruce. Lee was a genius man he he had a lot of folks in a super. You're talking about brazilian jiu jitsu of benefit for going on a year now so super new but being forty five have been around life for a bit right so i can apply that life to what to do on the mat store to do here my home to how i apply that and so when you think about that you knew find her around something through something and so when i first started this is your positioning power does not dictate seem success right so you just gotta blasts is through people or you're going to work through there. You're going to adapt. Do you have an ability to adapt to who are at the time and your teammates and support and it's our we're not the same exact people at any given point in time right.
