Episode 57: The Biggest Lesson for Hardcore Lifters & Food for Higher T Levels

On Our Minds

Do we need to make our future selves disabled in order to prove how “hardcore” we are now? I went to an emergency dentist last week who told me that the reason why he can’t run anymore (or hardly walk) is because of all his running injuries and the damage it did to his body.

He proceeded to tell me what an amazing runner he used to be, and there seemed to be no ounce of regret in his voice. Running was clearly his passion, but it destroyed his body as a mid-sixty-something year old. According to him, he basically had no Achilles tendon in one of his legs.

Is this what any of us want to become in the future? Someone who works so hard to achieve lofty physical goals that they can hardly do normal things (like walking) once they’re older? This kind of reminds me of what Seth Godin calls the hedonic treadmill.

We also talked about how dopamine affects motivation and why that could be the reason people chase goals so hard.
