121: From “broken brain” to learning expert

by | Nov 2, 2020 | 0 comments

You’ve probably seen it in the movies — the hero flips through a book at lightning-speed and then recalls details only a careful reader could have discovered.

Now, most people would think that’s all fiction… Hollywood fantasy.

But my guest today says it’s not only possible to optimize the human brain to read faster, remember better, and accelerate learning — but it’s something EVERYONE can do.

Jim Kwik is a world-renowned brain and memory coach consulted by Fortune 500 companies, billionaire CEOs, celebrities, and even Harvard University.

He’s also the CEO of Kwik Learning, the host of the Kwik Brain podcast, and now the New York Times best-selling author of Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life.

On today’s episode, Jim and I are going to talk about what makes a better brain, the EASIEST way to learn a new language, and Jim’s going to share his number one technique for learning more effectively starting TODAY.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The TRUTH about memory (and why you are NOT stuck with the memory you have) (10:45)
  • How doing THIS before bed can dramatically improve your memory and learning ability (12:15)
  • The one emotion that can actually SHRINK your brain (14:45)

  • The KEY to long-term memory (aka why you probably DON’T remember the Periodic Table from high school) (28:45)
  • How to read 52 books a year (and how your DIET can help) (31:30)
  • 3 simple steps to start learning a new language (especially if you’re TERRIBLE at learning languages!) (40:00)
