Redefining success vs narrative around nootropics

I like a lot what Gary Vaynerchuk is saying about redefining what success means: from being rich to being happy. OK, his business advice is also useful, but I like the voice of sanity better. It resonates with me because I’m trying to change the narrative around cognitive enhancement. In principle, nootropic supplements do not allow you to become superhuman. They just temporarily bring you to “zero”, a normal state when you are rested, calm and focused. For some people it feels like “superhuman” because they haven’t felt rested and calm in years. The effect you get after nootropics should be the driver for changing the lifestyle, not for working more insane hours to achieve something you don’t really care about.
