There’s So Much ‘Wow’ in Every Moment – Tim Chang : 598

I spotted my friend Tim Chang, an experienced investor and global executive, at the Consumer Health Summit and took the opportunity to ask the man once called “The Hottest Abs In Silicon Valley” how he stays in a high-performance state. Tim is passionate about syncing technology with wisdom to boost consciousness and fitness across body, mind and spirit. (And from his photo above, you can see he plays bass in a band—multiple bands, in fact.)

In this fun, free-wheeling episode of Bulletproof Radio, the hour spins by with solid suggestions about living your best life and tangible takeaways for well-being. We discuss modern culture topic by topic in an engrossing conversation that spans email, messaging apps, time burdens, FOMO, obligation, the Eisenhower Matrix, think time, vulnerability, struggle, time as a luxury, the attention economy, cognitive health, mental bandwidth, haters, social media, slow tech—and much more.

It all makes great sense and great listening!


Tim’s Quick Takes

  • Strength Training and HIIT: “I just want to get my stuff done and go.”
  • Meditation: “ There's something magic at minute 40 or 45 where your mind just tires itself out of yapping at itself.”
  • Intermittent Fasting: “Essentially, I just skipped breakfast.”
  • Five-day Fasts: “It's the equivalent of a nutritional meditation.”
  • Hipster Spirituality Culture: “They're literally out Instagramming each other.”
  • Meetings: “Just don’t schedule.”
  • Vulnerability: “The ultimate superpower.”
  • Life: “Nobody's crushing it, everyone's a mess.”


Tim leads consumer technology investments at Mayfield, focusing on next-gen Commerce & Marketplaces, Communities, Health & Wellness and Digital Media. He has been twice named on the Forbes Midas List of Top 100 venture capitalists and the AlwaysOn Power Players of top investors. He received his MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, graduating in the top 10% of his class. He also holds an MSEE and BSEE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. 

“I partner with entrepreneurs unleashing the power of communities and networks, using real-time data combined with personal storytelling, to disrupt the worlds of commerce, health and wellness, and also those innovating on new platforms such as messaging, VR/AR, and smart devices,” he explains.
