Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it
Izsights, first & foremost, is a platform for creating, documenting, sharing and learning. We’ll focus on the aspects of High Performance, Learning and Healthy Living – the passions of Adam M. Ismaeil, aka Iz, who runs the site. Topics addressed will fall under these three broad categories but range from nutrition, movement and mindset to mental models, thought patterns and mindfulness to futurism, new technological paradigms and much more. The goal is to create an intersection of ideas and collaboration that promotes learning by boiling things down to the essentials for performing better, thinking bigger and living healthier overall lives.
Adam M. Ismaeil, aka Iz
Born in New Jersey, Adam spent his high school years in the Hudson Valley, about one hour North of New York City. Competing in sports was a huge part of life, continuing into college as a two sport athlete at Springfield College where he studied exercise science. Athletics taught Adam a ton of lessons that he still pulls from today. While at Florida Southern College, Adam was a three year captain and starter on the Men’s Lacrosse team leading the program to records in wins, national ranking votes and upsets of top 5 teams for the first time in school history. He twice garnered all-america nominations and earned 1st team all conference, being named team MVP in 2012 and was runner up for conference player of the year as a defensive midfielder – the first defensive midfielder to be considered for the honor in conference history. After graduating with a degree in Finance & Economics, Adam scooted back up to NYC and spent about four years in management consulting focused on advising global banks and their wealth management business units. In May 2017 – after opportunities from Capco and EY – he felt as though despite a growing skillset his learning was leveling off and was siloed. Looking for an opportunity to expand horizons and compelled to pursue other passions, Adam has been researching, studying, learning, sharing and creating on his own and through this platform. For the last year Adam worked for a small commercial real estate software company and has focused heavily on re-learning how to learn, how to think more efficiently, investing in health and putting a ton of effort into creating and documenting it here with the hopes that you will find value. Outside of working and creating on the side, Adam loves trying new health or nutrition protocols, exercising, reading books, watching movies and is looking forward to spending more time in the elements.
