Meet the Host – ANN TSUNG MD, MPH

As a physician who has gone through the journey of achieving success as defined by society, I understand how it feels to have that nagging feeling that something is missing despite ticking off all the boxes on the checklist.

After completing my Emergency Medicine residency, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery to figure out what was missing and why I wasn’t as happy as I thought I should be. My fiance and I traveled the world for 8 months as our first retirement and self-discovery journey, and it was during this time that I started to work on myself and my productivity philosophy.

Over the years, I have spent countless hours on self-work, attending conferences and seminars, and reading over 120 books on brain training, leadership, peak performance, emotional intelligence, and coaching. I’ve learned to understand my values, build deep connections with loved ones and strangers, boost my productivity at work, and mend relationships with family members.

My productivity philosophy combines human optimization, flow states, dopamine desensitization, memory techniques, speed-reading, mind-body connection, functional nutrition, and practical skills, habits, and tools. My goal is to empower people to take control of their lives, achieve success and fulfillment, and make time for what truly matters.

I’ve been able to work as a full-time NASA flight surgeon and part-time ICU/ER doctor, trek Everest base camp, climb Kilimanjaro, travel the world for 8 months, launch a successful business, and still find time for family and friends. If you’re curious about how I’ve managed to do it all, I invite you to book a coaching call with me today.

My ultimate wish for you is to feel the freedom that I have felt, push past mental barriers, and have more time, inner peace, and fulfillment in life.
