As busy as he is, he does simple things to accomplish his dreams. These are visualization, goal setting, and meditation. He meditates at least once a day in a quiet place to gain clarity and focus. He also is a very active reader. If he could recommend one book it would be “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. It goes deep into the power of visualization, something he uses daily. Dr. McKenna is inspired by big minds such as Elon Musk, Barack Obama, and Michael Bloomberg. Surrounding himself with people smarter than he is what makes him more productive as an entrepreneur. His days are busy, rising in the morning by 6:30am. He wakes up his daughter and they have breakfast together. He then commutes to the office and arrives there by 8am. He works until 6pm and at that point he goes home to have dinner with his family. After dinner he goes to his Jiu Jitsu training til 9pm. The day ends at that.
