A-la Nassim Taleb’s idea:
To live a greater life, embrace the ‘barbell’ strategy and philosophy to life.
Embrace extremes for the optimal result or outcome.
For example, intermittent fasting. No food during breakfast or lunch, and massive dinner to break your fast.
Or powerlifting — go for “one rep max” attempts, instead of boring reps.
Or with alcohol or drugs. Better to get shitface drunk once a week (or month) than to drink regularly everyday.
Hyper social or anti-social?
Perhaps also with social interactions—
Sometimes be hyper social, sometimes be hyper antisocial.
Hella expensive or free
Another entrepreneurial idea:
To maximize profits, give away 99% of your stuff for free, and charge a lot of money for 1% of your products or services.

Extreme is better (and more fun!)
It seems in life, just avoid the middle and the boring. Become more extreme, in a fun and friendly way!
Perhaps aesthetics and art is more fun and interesting when it is extreme. We disdain “middle tones”. We love the dynamic range of black and white.
When in doubt, be extreme!
