Dr. Clayton Hansen
What do you like most about your position at Hansen Health Solutions?
I have the freedom to turn the clinic into my vision for healthcare. The conventional medical system is like The Titanic in that it’s not going to change course. But, I can offer people an alternative at our clinic and do things right.
What is your personal philosophy?
Focus on quality. Never quit. Give everything. Be true to yourself.
What advice do you have for someone who is struggling with their health?
Focus on the cause. Play the long game.
Where is your favorite place to be?
At home, with family and pets around.
What is your favorite thing to do?
I enjoy spending time on my health; exercise, stretching, meditation, etc.
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
Thailand – I love animals and visiting the national elephant conservatory was something I’ll never forget.
What 1-3 books have greatly influenced your life?
Relentless by Tim Grover, The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin, The Obstacle is The Way by Ryan Holliday, and Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins.
What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last 6 months/recent memory?
If you could have a gigantic billboard somewhere with anything on it – metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions – what would it say and why?
“In order to have what you really want, you must first be who you really are.” For me, life is a very internal journey and authenticity is really important. Unfortunately, most people never know themselves and they live someone else’s life. They make things external when what they are looking for is already inside.
What is the best or most worthwhile investment you’ve ever made?
Quality relationships are always the best return on investment.
When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do?
Prioritize and execute. Sometimes I will start with something small/lower priority that I can accomplish quickly to break the inertia and build momentum. Then move to the highest priority task and take action. Do one thing at a time.
