Is true freedom found in structure?
We humans crave freedom. We push against boundaries. We challenge authority. We break the rules.
But why is it that often, the more freedom we have, the more imprisoned we feel? Why is it that when we create structure in our lives, we find the most freedom?
Today we talk to Aubrey Marcus, founder and CEO of Onnit, a lifestyle brand based on a holistic health philosophy he calls Total Human Optimization.He also hosts the Aubrey Marcus Podcast.
This is his first interview since he ended his very public open relationship.
So now that it’s over, what does he think about open relationships? Did the freedom of love ultimately cause the downfall of his engagement?
And why is it always after the fact that we’re able to see clearly?
We will learn:
- How the most freedom is often found in structure.
- How to escape our own confirmation bias when it comes to decisions
- How to keep showing up in all areas of your life, even when you’re going through something really freaking hard
