The Code of the Extraordinary Mind book

What if everything we think we know about how the world works— our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness and love — are based on Brules (Bullshit Rules)that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?

This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest non-conformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack and create new rules for YOUR life so you can define success on your own terms.

The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice – but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything – love, work, money, parenting, sex, health and more—which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past, and redefine what happiness, purpose and success mean for you?

This is not a personal growth book, it’s a personal disruption book

Before we continue, I must issue a word of warning. Questioning many rules of the culturescape will not be easy. Here’s a partial list of all the things that could go “wrong” if you continue reading this book:

  • You might anger loved ones as you decide to question their expectations of you.
  • You might decide to raise your kids with different beliefs.
  • You might choose to question your religion or create your own customized religious system.
  • You might become obsessed with being happy.
  • You might decide to forgive someone who hurt you in the past.
  • You might rip apart your current goal sheet and start anew.
  • You might start a daily spiritual practice.
  • You might fall out of love with someone and fall in love with yourself.
  • You might decide to leave your career and start a business.
  • You might decide to leave your business and start a career.
  • You might find a mission that excites you a lot and scares you a little bit.
