Josh Waitzkin on Beginner’s Mind, Self-Actualization, and Advice from Your Future Self | Brought to you by Helix Sleep and Athletic Greens.

"I think of learning as unobstructed self-expression." — Josh Waitzkin

For the past 12 years, Josh has been channeling his passion for the outer limits of the learning process toward training elite mental performers in business and finance and to revolutionizing the education system through his nonprofit foundation, The Art of Learning Project. Josh is currently in the process of taking on his fourth and fifth disciplines, paddle surfing and foiling, and is an all-in father and husband.

This podcast is brought to you by Helix Sleep. I started sleeping on a Helix in 2017, and they’ve been one of my top choices for mattresses ever since. Take their two-minute sleep quiz, and based on body type and how you sleep, their algorithm will identify and match you to your perfect mattress.

Helix Sleep offer a 100-night trial and free shipping and returns. They’re manufactured in the USA, and because they ship it directly to you and cut out high-margin middlemen, they cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars less than comparable mattress-store options. To personalize your sleep experience, visit Helixsleep.com/TIM and you'll receive up to $125 off your custom mattress.

This podcast is also brought to you by Athletic Greens. I’m often asked: “If you could use only one supplement, what would it be?” My answer is usually Athletic Greens, which I consider my all-in-one nutritional insurance. I recommended it in The 4-Hour Body and did not get paid to do so. I often take it in the mornings and travel with it to minimize the likelihood of getting sick. Though I always focus on whole foods first, Athletic Greens covers my bases if I can’t get everything I need through meals.

As a listener of The Tim Ferriss Showyou'll get a free 20-count travel pack (valued at $79) with your first order at AthleticGreens.com/tim.
