Step 1: Limit Sources of Cheap Dopamine

Step 1: Limit Sources of Cheap Dopamine

When I say “cheap” here, I mean dopamine that’s easy to get and will do nothing to improve your life. You need to limit these sources of dopamine as much as possible.

If you’re sabotaging yourself chasing cheap hits, it’ll be physically impossible to use your dopamine productively.

Start small. Remove the smallest and easiest dopamine sources from your life. Things like notifications and TikTok. You’ll live without these. You can also remove:

  • Junk food
  • Video games
  • Drugs and alcohol

Step 3: Leverage Your Dopamine

Step 3: Leverage Your Dopamine

Now that you’re using your dopamine on something that will accelerate your growth, you can start intentionally tapping into this system to maximize the benefits. The best way to do this is by tracking your progress.

When you can see you’ve made progress (made money online, decreased your body fat, increased your max squat) you’ll get a hit of dopamine. This will motivate you to keep chasing this result. This makes things like exercising and eating well much easier.

Another way is to pursue your curiosities. Consume content related to your interests.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

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!
