Freddy Lansky, the owner of Points Panda and co-founder of iChess, is a guest on our podcast today to talk about his successful endeavors and how he managed to stay on track with discipline.Freddy, like all of us, struggled to stay disciplined. He found himself into the vortex of staying up late, eating unhealthy, and vices.Distraction was one of his biggest vices, and a lot of opportunities were wasted because of them.

After trying a few methods, Freddy found something that really works for him.

Freddy says there are so many great apps you use to help you block out all distractions in your life. You don’t have to be so disciplined that you start to go crazy about having a slice of pizza or cookie.Everything can be done in moderation. Also, keeping track of how many hours you sleep, which apps you spend the most time on, and what you eat can be helpful to you.That way, you know what to improve in your life. You need to set yourself up to success by blocking apps and staying away from social media as possible.Freddy gives tips on how to start your mornings better and how our phones impact on our health.

I know everybody can relate to the fact that apps are taking away most of our time, and staying away is difficult.

If you want to know how to do that, keep on reading…

Top Key Quotes

“Will power is BS in general. It ranges from doesn’t work at all to kinda works.”

“I think the strategy beyond having tracking and having a coach is really good isn’t getting rid of all the bad urges, to eat the cookie, to drink, to stay up late, is to find ways to make where it’s not even an option anymore

“My dog had a 100% chance of going through his diet because that’s all he had. I make it for myself so that I can’t fail”

“Adding friction to bad habits and adding rewards to good habits.”

Enjoy your vices. Vices are meant to be enjoyed in moderation.”
