Best Podcasts for Top Performance
Hi Online Pilot,
I hope this reaches you grinning!
I’ve been sending the list below to friends and thought you’d like it too. It has my favourite interviews with top performers in sports, tech, business, mindfulness, health and more.
My HOT TIP before you listen is to purchase a set of bluetooth in-ear headphones.
I really had no idea headphones would improve life so much. The Jaybird X2 pair I bought in February have taken me from rarely listening to a podcast to 3+ a week.
I’ve learnt from top performers in the world while I’ve been at the gym, driving, doing chores, on public transport, walking to the market,… They optimise in-between times.
They also sit comfortably around my neck when I’m not using them as there is no cord to the phone.
I press play more often (even if it’s a few minutes) and it doesn’t matter if my phone is close or in another room.
I’m excited about headphones!
Knowing you’re interested in top performance, future trends, and/or new technology, I imagine you’ll highly enjoy these Tim Ferriss interviews. Tim is the author of the Four Hour Work Week book which is really useful for a productive and globally-aware mindset.
Either access these podcasts via searching for Tim Ferriss in the Podcasts app on your smartphone or head here. I download a few at a time to my phone so that I can listen whether I’m connected to the internet or not.
These are my favourite podcast interviews in suggested listening order:
Listen to at least one in the next week and reply to this email and let me know what was useful. I’ll be fascinated.
Do share the love by forwarding this email as your friends might enjoy these podcasts too.
We’re receiving truly fascinating comments from entrants to our competition – thankyou. If you’ve not yet entered, please do here as it is closing soon and we’d love to see you look amazing online. You could win 2 coaching sessions and support in between (valued at $1,500).
P.S. The Jaybird X headphones have a known power issue – they sometimes don’t turn on with full charge. I’ve experienced this only a couple of times though not often enough to be concerned. The buds are a bit big for my ears too though they work fine with the smallest earbud covers. The battery life is fantastic! I can use them for a day – which is about 4 or more hours of on and off use. Jaybird also have the Freedom pair coming out soon. I highly recommend purchasing some sort of bluetooth in-ear headphones now – there’s learning to be had!
P.P.S. These headphones save time too. Try out handsfree calling: press and hold the bottom button on your iPhone for a moment, let go then say “Call Tess” and hey presto the phone is ringing for Tess. So easy! For reminders, press and hold the bottom button then say “remind me tomorrow at 9 to call Geoff”… and at 9am tomorrow you’ll be reminded and given the option to call too! Try it out a few times and you’ll get the hang of it. Enjoy!
