All of us have heard from men who wonder if it’s too late to start in life. Many of them believe they may have missed the one shot they had to make something of themselves, or they’ve “wasted” too much of their lives. My guest today, Founder of Not Dead Yet, Matthew Vincent, makes the case that it’s never too late to start as long as there is air in your lungs and blood pumping through your heart.
Today, we have an extremely fascinating discussion on so many different topics including several we don’t see eye to eye on. Specifically, we talk about the scarcity vs. abundant mindset, the value of hate and love, the dangers in the “hedonic treadmill,” connecting with others as a powerful motive for overcoming destructive behavior, and the immense liberty found in becoming completely aware of yourself.

My guest today is the Founder of Not Dead Yet apparel company and two-time highland games champion, Matthew Vincent. Most of us have a preconceived notion of how athletes show up off the field. You’re going to hear why those preconceived notions aren’t’ always correct as you’ll be listening to a man who is extremely thoughtful, introspective, and contemplated more about life and his position in it than most others.
He’s travelled the world extensively and has been introduced to so many people and cultures that it has opened his mind the possibility that he is right about so few things and given him a perspective that most of us find hard to grasp. Enjoy!

Twelve-Week Battle Planners
Men, you’ve heard me talk a lot about the need for and importance of planning but so few of us know exactly what that looks like. I struggled with it for a long time and, with all the planners available, it’s hard to know which one works best. Every system I ran across had its pros and cons.
That’s why we created the Twelve-Week Battle Planner. We took the best elements of other planners, left the rest, and have been evolving our systems for the last 8 years to create a tool that you will use daily to produce maximum results.
