Great app for distilled wisdom for an optimized life

For the past several years, I’ve appreciated Brian Johnson’s incredible attitude, heroic spirit & ridiculously relentless production of distilled & synthesized wisdom & knowledge that is somehow related to becoming the best version of oneself. Depending upon your appetite for wisdom & spare time, you can listen or watch the very short daily “+1” wisdom nuggets/questions (1-3min), the medium length Philosopher Notes that summarize the key takeaways from one important book, and how they relate to the broader Optimize “canon.” If you have a bit more time & hunger, there are several classes that go deeper & wider into various Meta-Themes (E.g. Confidence 101, Energy 101, etc.), which connect the dots between a body of important thinkers, ranging widely across time & genre, from ancient philosophers, to cutting-edge neuroscience, and Harry Potter. I would never have the time to read this massive amount of original content, and am grateful that Brian and the Optimize team, have continued to delve deep into some of the most fecund Civilizational gold mines, and consistently deliver this precious “mettle” to my smart phone while I sleep, all for a monthly fee that’s cheaper than a movie ticket.

Empowering changemakers

I'm a huge fan of Brian Johnson & the amazing team at Heroic. I first became a paying subscriber to Optimize in 2015 and as soon as the Lifetime membership option was available (in January 2017), I signed up. I also joined Heroic as a founding investor (in March) and signed up for the annual membership on June 17th. Currently I'm in Class V of the Optimize Coach Training and loving ALL that we're learning.

The app delivers the curriculum seamlessly. The Master Class & 101 videos are easy to watch and there are even playlists that queue in advance, which makes moving through the information easy & efficient. I prefer reading the Philosopher's Notes and there are options for that too (video, audio, or text).

I also LOVE that Heroic is both a PBC & certified B Corporation as I created & love teaching a class where college students work on experiential learning consulting teams with businesses, helping them to become certified B Corporations.

I’ve devoted my career (and life) to educating & empowering students to become changemakers and I appreciate & admire that the team at Heroic & Optimize have goals are along those same lines -- though their vision is admirably far GREATER than mine… I just teach college students, they're truly changing the world at scale 🙂

Life Changing

This App has changed my life. The amount of real life application that I have pulled away from this is truly amazing. Every morning I listen to Optimize +1. I then go directly to my journal and write down my thought on the topic, write down what I learned yesterday during the day and then write down what I am grateful for. This usually take 7-10 min while I eat my morning breakfast. This routine has changed my life by allowing me to write down and be in the present moment with my thoughts. If things are well I make sure to celebrate, if things are not good then I can admit that and look to work on what needs adjusting/changing. The number of book recommendations that I have gotten from Optimize is really awesome. This app has been a game changer for me! Thank you Brian and The Optimize Team!
