After finishing high school, Hugh decided he wanted to study economics and law. However, halfway through his gap year, he realized that wasn’t the direction he wanted to go into so he switched to communications. Hugh ended up graduating college with a degree in journalism
In his last semester, he took a theater class because he needed to fill an elective and the class had no exams. Hugh ended up getting the lead role.
It was around that time that Hugh had the epiphany that he loved theater more than journalism or any other subject.
Hugh graduated from drama school when he was 26
Whatever you want to accomplish in life, you can’t sit around waiting for luck to happen. You have to chase success. Be stoic, be hopeful, but work your ass off.
Most actors are unemployed so if you get a job you need to work like hell. Say yes to any role you can get.
Hugh also had this attitude you got to say yes to everything when you graduate. Just say yes, go for everything.
Even though Hugh wasn’t a singer, his agent told him to audition for the role of Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. Hugh ended up getting the role.
Hugh loves doing puzzles, he recommends getting a 1,000 piece puzzle from Wentworth. When he’s working on a puzzle, he has to set an alarm to remind him to go to sleep or otherwise he’ll stay up till 4 AM working on it
Doing puzzles puts him at ease he thinks it’s probably another form of meditation in a way. He also likes to turn memorable photos into puzzles he uses MyJigsawpuzzle to do so.
Hugh started taking cold showers after reading about the benefits of it in Tim’s book The 4 Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat Loss, Incredible Sex and Becoming Superhuman
Hugh will read a book out loud for 15 minutes and then his wife will do the same. Right now Hugh and his wife are reading The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life by David Brooks

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
