Are there some things from your service that you can't shake?
So for example, you still wake up at 4:30 in the morning,
to go workout, what was it about your time in the Seals,
that you wanted to keep these habits up?
They're good habits, why would you not wake up at 4:30?
Well what does this bring to you?
Waking up early?
You just get a jump on the day.
The reason I wake up at 4:30 in the morning
is because no one else is awake yet,
so that gives me the opportunity to do things
that I need to get done, kinda selfishly for myself,
and the big one in that category is working out.
And it doesn't feel good at 4:30 when you get up,
but by the time 7 o'clock rolls around, and you've already worked out,
and you've already got some work done,
and you've got some time to say goodbye to your kids before they go to school.
It's infinitely better than sleeping in until 6:45,
and you get out of bed, and now you've missed your kids goin to school, or whatever.
You're not prepared for the day, it's awful.
So if someone, maybe they don't have time to work out
or they just need something that could be like a quick fix,
is there something that you recommend?
Oh yeah, workouts don't have to take a long time.
Workouts can be very quick.
Matter of fact, go do two minutes of burpees,
as many burpees as you can, in two minutes,
or four minutes, or six minutes,
go and sprint, go and do anything very intensely, for a short period of time
and you'll get great benefit out of it.
Something I'm sure you hear a lot is
4:30, like this either just can't fit into my schedule,
or if I'm gonna be realistic, I'm probably not gonna wake up at 4:30,
what do you tell people who say that?
Yeah, and there's people that work night shifts,
and there's people that it's unhealthy for them,
they can't fall as-- it's like no, be healthy,
get enough sleep, but, first of all,
wake up at the same time every day
and, if you pick that time and you start waking up at the same time every day,
that's very good for you.
It doesn't have to be 4:30, it could be 6:30,
it could be 7, I don't know what your personal schedule is,
but find out a time, pick it, set it, stick to it,
and maintain that schedule, and that's gonna end up better for you.
I recommend it's earlier.
I recommend that you go to bed earlier,
'cause what are you doing at night, most of the time?
Most of the time at night, you're not working on anything super productive,
you're just winding down and
watching stupid YouTube videos, or surfing the internet, reading clickbait stories, right?
Don't do that, instead, go to sleep,
and then wake up early.
Could you explain that notion of discipline equals freedom?
If you want more freedom in your life,
you have to have more discipline.
If you don't have any discipline,
you'll end up with absolutely no freedom,
you'll end up being a slave to other people that boss you around.
There's all kind of problems that can occur, if you don't have discipline in your life.
And the more discipline you have,
the more freedom you're gonna have.
So just the discipline of the Seals,
will never-- it's impossible to leave?
No, it's possible to leave, there's retired seals all over the place that are undisciplined.
They've moved on, and they don't care about that anymore.
It's fine, I don't judge other people on what they're doin',
like they're probably stoked to
sleep in and hang out with their kids,
and eat breakfast in bed, that's fine.
I don't have anything against that.
But for me? I wanna get up and go.

1get a jump on0:18
get a jump on 字面上的意思是「先跳到某個東西上面佔著」,衍伸為「搶先別人一步」的意思。
In order to get a jump on the concert ticket, I lined up five hours earlier in front of the ibon.
為了搶到演唱會的門票,我提早了 5 個小時守在 ibon 前面。

The company is trying to get a jump on their competitors, so it proactively signed the contracts with government entities.

另外一個相似的片語是 beat sb. to the punch
I was going to share my idea with the supervisor, but my colleague beat me to the punch.

2quick fix0:57
fix 原意為「修理」或「固定」,quick fix 則是指「快速解決問題」或「快速見效」的方法,但這個詞通常帶有貶意。
There is no quick fix for losing weight, the only way is to do exercise persistently.

另外如果你說 I'll fix it! 字面上是「我來修理」,其實就是「交給我來搞定!」的意思!

總是感覺疲累?科學家跟你解釋原因 (Why Are You Always Tired?)

3stick to1:52
stick 當動詞的意思是「黏住」、「固定住」或是「刺進」、「戳進」,但當它跟 to 一起使用時就會變成「堅持」、「遵守」的意思。
After several discussions, the CEO still stuck to the original proposal.

4wind down2:07
wind 當名詞時是「風」,當動詞則是指「繞」、「彎曲」,而 wind down 傳達出的意象就是「蜷縮起來」的樣子,也就衍伸為「 (在勞累或擔心之後) 放鬆下來」的意思。
Evangeline prefers to wind down with some videos of fulffy cats after work.
Evangeline 下班後喜歡看些毛絨絨的貓咪影片來放鬆一會兒。

另一個跟 wind 有關的片語是 get wind of sth. ,意思是「得知秘密消息」。
Once the police got wind of the premeditated murder, they caught the serial killer in time.

【TED】羅素.福克斯 (Russell Foster):我們為什麼需要睡眠? (Why do we sleep? | Russell Foster)

clickbait 是 1990 年代才出現的新單字,click 當動詞是「點擊」,bait 則是「餌」,而 clickbait 就是指那些靠點閱率來創造營收的「釣魚文章」。
Clickbaits are everywhere in our lives, especially on social media such as Facebook and Instagram.
釣魚文章充斥在你我的生活之中,尤其像是 Facebook 和 Instagram 這種社交媒體上。

早睡早起不僅有益於身體健康,也可以讓自己有時間做更多有意義的事,其實歷史上有許多成功人士都遵循著這個習慣,像是 Facebook 執行長馬克・佐克柏、脫口秀主持人歐普拉・溫芙蕾、及股神巴菲特等等,快抓住暑假的尾巴培養這個好習慣,讓自己的新學期可以有個好的開始吧!
