“Find a goal, pick it, make it a little bit crazy, a little bit challenging, and work towards it.”
— Daniel Clark

Greetings, SuperFriends!

This week we are going to explore how you can become SuperHuman simply by putting on a pair of headphones…

No, I'm not talking about some crazy electrode that hacks your brain. I'm talking about music that is specifically designed to help you focus, help you fall asleep, help you calm down, or get you amped up.

You see, today I interviewed the CEO of a company called brain.fm, Daniel Clark. Some of you may have heard of them, seeing as they are creating scientifically-backed music that elicits specific states in the brain…

So, I wanted to figure out not just how this works, but why it works, and how we can leverage this new technology to improve our lives.

This turned out to be a far-ranging conversation. Dan and I really hit it off, and we just went into all the geeky things he and I both do to optimize our performance.

I know that you are really going to enjoy this conversation!
