    Forget the finish line, find the win

    You’ve been through a lot this year. So much, in fact, that it’s easy to fall prey to a “finish line” mindset. It’s the perception that if you can just hang on a little longer—outlast the virus, the storm, the uncertainty—eventually you will cross a finish line and everything will be good again. But, if your happiness depends on the passing of a circumstance beyond your control, then it will always be just out of reach. Instead, try focusing on your wins and the rewards they bring.

    Member Stories - Johnathan Hornig

    One of our favorite things here at Madefor is seeing our members not just engaging with the program, but fully embracing it and truly blossoming. One such member is Johnathan Hornig, a tremendously positive and encouraging influence on everyone he comes across. Johnathan is a Clinical Social Worker and Personal Chef but to us, he is a motivator, a companion, a teacher, and a connector. It’s that last one that really stands out.

    Momentum

    Science alone isn’t enough. In fact, rarely is a lack of information the underlying reason for a lack of progress. Oftentimes, something more is required to compel action—a story, an inspiration, a perspective that not only directs our attention but that also energizes us to move forward. Madefor Perspectives is a place where we deliver curated, relevant, and purposeful content from our Founders, Advisors, and Community-all designed to inspire you to see things from a different angle.

    New Year, Same Problems??

    3 Madefor practices that can help you connect with your best self
    One thing we have come to realize over the past year is how the practices our members are not only learning, but doing are helping them deal better with the friction and stress that we are all living in right now. Maybe you’re one month into the start of 2021 and realize the new year hasn’t provided much relief from the stressors of the past year; things may be feeling just as chaotic as before.

    Meet Dr. Andrew Huberman

    You never know what may come from a chance connection, how a weak-tie relationship that seems superficial or inconsequential can actually have profound importance in your journey. Take, for example, Dr. Andrew Huberman, Madefor’s Lead Scientific Advisor. He met Madefor Co-founder, Pat Dossett, through his sister, who is friends with Pat’s wife. Both Andrew’s sister and Pat’s wife thought the men should connect, and as luck would have it, they all randomly ended up at the same place one day.

    You're in the ring

    I was a boxer in college—not a very good one, but I had a hard head and heavy hands, which meant I could fake my way through most fights. Unfortunately, it also meant that every fight entailed quite a bit of “connection,” namely my head against my opponent’s fists. In fact, I used to joke with Coach Jim that my strategy was to break my opponent’s will by breaking their hands on my head. One fight in particular stands out, an invitational at the New York Athletic Club.
