Productivity, energy, and miserable jobs

The Mental Breakdown - Edition #115

Have you heard of Rich Litvin?

Rich is a coach to Navy Seals, Olympic athletes, and well-known CEOs. 

Through conversations on his podcast and writing on his blog, Rich helps his folks get to the heart of who they are and why they do what they do.

I’ve listened to Rich’s “1 Insight” for a little over a year, and I’m excited to share the Q&A bot that we’ve built based on his public work.

We call it “Ask Rich.”

Ask it a question and get an AI-generated answer derived from an interpretation of the contents of his blog and past podcast interviews.

Questions like:

  • How do you balance creative and mundane tasks?

  • What are some ways to build a great word-of-mouth business?

  • What are some ways to coach high performers?
