How productive are you, do you wish you could achieve more in your day or your life?
Is life a struggle, are you achieving your goals or do you feel limited?
The box office hit film ‘Limitless’ was based on a character ‘Eddie Mora’ and what became his addiction to the pill NZT 48. Eddie was a stagnant writer with no confidence, but the NZT 48 pill changed his life. He became a man without limits. Eddie was a high achiever, accomplishing his goals and fulfilling his desires.
The pill was a clear tablet, a fiction drug that activated the brain and abolished natural limitations of the ability to think. When taken, his cognitive thinking exploded.
“What I could do in my day was limitless, suddenly, I knew everything about everything. It was as if I was blind but now I can see. ” His confidence and achievements rocketed!
In the film the pill was addictive and it triggered hallucinations, hyper behaviour, OCD, loss of appetite and sometimes, “a sparkling cocktail of useless information”.
Moving away from fiction and back to reality…
Can you enhance your productivity? Yes.
Through the same limitless means as Eddie Mora? No
There isn’t any drug available which would give you that significant edge. The NZT 48 pill doesn’t exist. There is nothing legally available that can give you super-human cognitive abilities with a four digit IQ.
However, you can achieve a safe and healthy compromise. The sky won’t be the limit but you can have the potential to be a high achiever, have controlled sleep behaviour and feel more confident to make decisions.
There are nootropic smart drugs out there that enhance the brain’s functions and gives it a boost! Those smart drugs can help with the following:
- Improve mental ability
- Assist productivity and focus
- Increase wakefulness
- Help with sleep disorders
- Improve memory and learning
- Have a quicker reaction time
- Be more vigilant
- Improve motivation
- Help with depression
- Reduce fatigue
Some people with high pressured jobs, students, shift workers or people with sleep disorders turn to drugs to help stay alert and enhance their performance.
One student started taking the supplement Modafinil while getting his MBA at Wharton. At the same time, he was also working at a start-up that later sold for $600 million in value, so you can imagine how busy he was. He needed to find a way to keep his brain running.
The student started taking Modafinil and felt more like himself. More than he had in years. He took it just about every day in varying doses for 8 years. It gave him energy which changed his life.
One reason he liked Modafinil was because it enhanced the dopamine release, but it bound together with his dopamine receptors differently than addictive substances like cocaine and amphetamines do, which may be part of the reason Modafinil shares many of the benefits of other stimulants, but doesn’t cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms. It did increase his focus, problem-solving abilities, and wakefulness.
You can enhance your productivity with a healthy diet, exercise, good sleep and for an extra boost – a safe and effective supplement, such as Modafinil.
Modafinil can help with the following:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Attention-deficit disorder
- Myotonic dystrophy
- Multiple sclerosis-induced fatigue
- Post-anaesthesia grogginess
- Cognitive impairment in schizophrenia
- Spasticity associated with cerebral palsy
- Age-related memory decline
- Idiopathic hypersomnia
- Everyday cat-napping
The basis of its uniqueness lies in its ability to stimulate only when stimulation is required. As a result the ‘highs and lows’ associated with other stimulants- such as amphetamine- are absent. Modafinil does not bring about the anxiety, agitation and insomnia associated with these more familiar stimulants. Normal sleep patterns are not affected, nor is Modafinil addictive or accompanied by the number of side-effects present with currently prescribed stimulants.
Here are some other forms of stimulants that can keep your brain alert:
- Sugary drinks
- Bacopa Monnieri
Going back to the beginning of this article, the washed up writer Eddie Mora thought he was a man without limits. One tablet a day and he was limitless.
Deluded, claiming he wasn’t high, he wasn’t wired, just clear. He knew what he needed to do and how to do it. He found a pill that could make him rich and powerful.
However, he ended up hurting the ones that loved him, getting into debt, having blackouts, being a womaniser and becoming heavily involved in politics. Was it worth it? No.
If someone offers you a NZT 48, we highly recommend you say no!
We suggest that you become more productive by living a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy food, exercise, getting enough sleep and taking supplements.
Choosing that option to become more productive means no violence and you will get a good night sleep!
