This episode is underwritten by HealthIQ, and we couldn't be happier to have them! See, one of the things I’m so passionate about when I talk about how I use my ADHD to my advantage is exercise, right? It’s obvious that a workout in the morning greatly boosts my brainpower and lets me use my faster brain to do great things. But here’s the other benefit of exercise: Engagement in high-intensity exercise once per week decreases risk for cardiovascular mortality by 39% for men and 51% for...

Happy holidays, everyone! As 2017 comes to a close, I thought it'd be fun to share a special interview I did with Dr. Ned Hallowell, the Godfather of ADHD, about how to handle the holidays when you're ADD or ADHD! Having spent the past two days putting together a 100-piece dollhouse for my daughter, I know what ADHD can add to an already stressful holiday season.

You know those races where people jump over fire pits, carry 80 pound bags of sand up a hill, and crawl under barbed wire? Of course you do. If you're ADHD, chances are you've done it. A mere marathon? That's for regular people. Am I right? Welcome to the world of the Spartan Race. This week, we've got the founder on FTN, and, you guessed it, he's massively ADHD. So ADHD, in fact, that he wouldn't shut off his email for the entire interview. You'll see what I mean when you listen Joe...

Hi there, gang! As this episode publishes, I'm in a plane somewhere above the Pacific Ocean, as I take what I'm pretty sure is my last flight to Asia this year. Two days in Hong Kong, then back to NYC. But that gives me lots and lots of time to write, and as you know, my best writing and best ideas come to me on airplanes. Our guest this week had his game-changing idea come to him in the drive-through line at a McDonald's. Yes, seriously! Brian Scudamore is the Founder & CEO of three...

FTN 76: Riding for Focus, with The Specialized Foundation's Ted Theocheung and Dr. Kimberly Price

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm an avid cyclist. Whether I'm doing leisurely loops around Central Park, or hundred mile rides while training for my next Ironman, if I'm exercising and not running, I can either be found on my Specialized Venge, or my Peloton spin bike. Not only is it amazing exercise, not only is it a bicycle seat a great place from which to see the world, but for me, probably the best benefit of cycling is the massive dopamine hit that I get from ten minutes into my...

Let's face it - If you're a manager, chances are, you're going to be managing some neuro-atypical employees, if you're not already. Considering some studies are saying that four out of ten new hires in the next ten years are going to be on the spectrum of ADD, ADHD, OCD, or similar, how you start dealing with these employees now will determine how easy it is to get your new hires later. That's where this week's guest comes in. Bruce Tulgan is internationally recognized as the leading...

Welcome to Faster Than Normal, Episode 72! This week, we talk to Christopher Walker, via a digital connection all the way from Japan!

Say hey to DJ John Michael! He's the official DJ in Residence at Peloton Cycle (now known as OnePeloton,) he's trained under Junior Vasquez, and knows more 80s trivia than you do.
