Ep 69 - Matan Hakimi - Reversing Chronic Disease by The Genuinely Interested Podcast • A podcast on Anchor

Andrew is a professional speaker, the founder and CEO of Habits At Work, and the co-author of the 11th Habit. A book that shows how to design a company that makes it easy and natural for employees to prioritize and care for themselves, and perform at the highest level as a result. Andrew grew up in South Africa, but at a certain stage decided that what he was doing there was just not enough for him anymore. He eventually set his sights on the US. Andrew focuses on creating good habits and helping people become magnetic. I didn't fully realize what he meant when I originally heard it, but after talking to Andrew for over an hour, I understood what he means when he said magnetic. The way I perceive it is having people be drawn to you, and you do that in a few ways. One of the ways, which Andrew himself portrays so well, is just simply listening. Most people want to talk to be heard - which is fine - but if you actually listen to what people have to say, you will be able to be a better husband, wife, father, mother, CEO, or salesperson. Our ability to listen and receive honest feedback is a crucial part of the process. Andrew also said something that really stuck with me - we invent who we are. I never really thought of it in this way but through our actions and our daily conscious and nonconscious decisions and habits, we actively create the person that we become. Our habits create us. Andrew says that if we practice good habits, let's say in one particular arena, every day, day after day - we can eventually rise to the top 1% of that industry/category. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation, and I think Andrew has a lot of great insights into what makes us better. Better salespeople, better entrepreneurs, better CEOs, better fathers and mothers, and better partners. My Take - Invent yourself, you are your own best or worst invention. If you create good habits, you will see the results in the long run. We make many decisions each day, make sure some of those decisions serve you well in the process of creating a better you - not comparing yourself with others, but only with yourself.

Curry favour. Hot, spicy foods containing chillies or cayenne pepper trigger endorphins, the feel-good hormones. Endorphins have a powerful, almost narcotic, effect and make you feel good after exercising. But go easy on the lamb, pork and mutton and the high-fat, creamy dishes served in many Indian restaurants.
