What one Navy SEAL learned by doing Hell Week 3 times
Two questions hold the key to breaking through your limitations, says David Goggins.
David Goggins is the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training, Air Force tactical air controller training, and the U.S. Army Ranger School, where he graduated as 'Enlisted Honor Man'. Seeking an even greater challenge, Goggins set about conquering the hardest sporting events known to man. Today he is considered to be one of the greatest endurance athletes in the world.
- Navy SEAL Hell Week is 130 hours of brutal training with less than 4 hours of sleep.
- To mentally and physically persist, you need to be sure of one thing: Why you want to be there.
- David Goggins keeps a 'mental cookie jar' of victories to overcome stress and negative self-talk.

- Emma Seppälä, a Stanford researcher on human happiness, recommends tapping into the parasympathetic nervous system instead—"rest and digest"rather than "fight or flight."
- Aiming for energy management rather than time management will give you the resilience you need to excel at the things that really matter in your life and career, rather than living "mostly off" by attempting to seem "always on."
Steve Wozniak doesn't know if his phone is listening, but he's minimizing risks.
- Steve Wozniak didn't hold back his feelings about the social media giant when stopped at an airport.
- The Apple co-founder admitted that devices spying on his conversations is worrisome.
- Wozniak deleted his Facebook account last year, recommending that "most people" should do the same.
When it comes to sniffing out whether a source is credible or not, even journalists can sometimes take the wrong approach.
- We all think that we're competent consumers of news media, but the research shows that even journalists struggle with identifying fact from fiction.
- When judging whether a piece of media is true or not, most of us focus too much on the source itself. Knowledge has a context, and it's important to look at that context when trying to validate a source.
