“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest Cheetah or it will be killed. Every morning a Cheetah wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Cheetah or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”

~ Christopher McDougall, Born to Run

Mastering Mind & Body Podcast Series hosted by Markus Gnirck

In this new podcast series, Markus Gnirck is searching for the WHY? – How Uberhumans are able to Master Mind and Body in their daily life when performing on the highest level and how science is optimising human beings.

In the chats with his guests, he is keen to understand the journey of individuals with extreme passion, discipline, compassion and motivation and how they are balancing physical and mental health to be more successful and happy in life.

In this episode, Markus talks to me about how cycling has changed my private and work life. My awareness of mind and body helps me to perform on the highest level – whether it be during extensive traveling, finishing the Hawaiian ironman or simply being a dad.

In the second part of the episode, we discuss the current state of mental and physical well-being of entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia. I take a view that I prefer to invest in founders with a healthy lifestyle that also think long term about their impact.
