Are Smart Drugs the Answer for You?

Want a competitive edge? Want a boost of energy, enhanced focus and productivity, stamina and clarity? Smart drugs may be the answer. Or maybe not…

Smart drugs are taking the tech and startup scene by storm. No longer are these nootropics a whisper; they are front and center and pushers promise to give you a leg up.

For now, I’m not going to weigh in on the topic except to say there’s something even better.

Meditation. Quieting the mind. Silencing thought.

Research on meditation continues to support the same promises as those for smart drugs: providing a competitive advantage, boosting energy, focus, productivity, stamina and clarity…and many go so far as to say meditation boosts compassion and empathy (emotional intelligence which is important in relationships…aren’t we all in relationship with others, business and personal).

The advantage to meditation is that IT’S FREE! It’s also generally recognized as safe (GRAS). The side effects are positive (see above). It does not cause harm to internal organs. You can’t run out of it. You can do it anywhere. It’s complementary, meaning you can meditate AND take the smart drugs if you’re hellbent on doing so.
