time and freedom to do the things that energize you. He shares how living by design, versus default,
can add an hour a day to your life and help you reclaim the person you are meant to be. Pointing out that average is an accident, and
that excellence isn't easy, Adam challenges the status quo to show you how to start living 8 Days A Week."

Adam has lived a life of adventures and challenges. He pushed through his undergrad years with a B- average. His three successes out of thirty-three academic classes were in psychology, health and wellbeing, and nutrition.
