The Big 4

Next-level results depend on the two words everyone hates:

“It depends.”

“Should I cut down on carbs? It depends.

“Do I need to change my training? It depends.

“Will adding supplements make a difference? It depends.

The words sting because it feels like a delay. You want to move fast and transform. But, that’s the first mistake. 

“It depends” isn’t a cop-out. It’s recognition of the hierarchy that will help you finally achieve the success you desire.

Before worrying about “it depends” questions, instead, focusing on mastering “The Big 4.” This foundation includes:

  1. Daily movement
  2. Vegetables, fruits, protein each day
  3. Prioritizing sleep and recovery
  4. Habituating smiling and sex

Once you’ve built habits around those behaviors, then hitting the next level depends on your:

  • Goals
  • Lifestyle
  • Schedule
  • Budget
  • Preferences

Success stands at the intersection of science – personal experience – consistency – and lifestyle factors. 

At some point, you need to customize. But, “it depends” is something that is earned. If you want to reach that point, everything depends on your willingness to move slowly and master the big 4.
