Jon Levy – The Science of Adventure

This week we’re talking to Jon Levy. He’s a human behavior scientist that runs with the bulls in Pamplona, battles Kiefer Sutherland in Jenga, and crashes million-dollar weddings. How does he do it and why? The E.P.I.C. Model of Adventure from his new book (The 2AM Principle), a breakthrough four-step process (Establish, Push Boundaries, Increase, Continue) for cultivating more adventure in your life, from picking the right team, to choosing the right mission, and taking the right risks—this interview is full of crazy stories from his own exploits to show you how it’s done.
