Hi, I'm an author of a dozen books - some bestsellers - on learning, memory, and productivity.
I'm on a mission to improve people's life though enhanced mental performance.
Imagine what your life would be like if you could read at the speed of sight, learn at an extraordinary pace, and succeed with unmatched velocity.
In truth, I’m just like you: no better, no worse
Though, I may have started off worse...
After getting laid off from my first job out of college, I never felt secure in my position.
I felt a strong urge to make myself less indispensable and more valuable to my employers, so I decided to sit for the CPA (Certified Public Accountancy) exam.
At the time, it was considered one of the most difficult certification exam with a 15% first time pass rate.
Overwhelming to say the least!
I decided it might be worth spending time searching memory and learning techniques
Thought the time I put upfront could save me much more in the long run.
Sure enough...it did!
I found tools like mind mapping that were really helpful
…and I almost passed on the first try. I passed 3 out of 4 parts, and missed the fourth by only 2%.
This Got Me Thinking!
Intelligence is a bit over rated.
Intelligence isn’t this thing we are born with, which is what I thought.
I use to think, either you have it or don’t...and if you don’t, there is a level of success that is not possible.
This experience showed me with the right tools, a person can function as well - if not better - than people we call genius.
It’s just that geniuses have figured out the tools on their own or their brains naturally work that way.
However, if you apply the same tools, you can operate as well if not better.
My love for learning and exploring has led me to nearly 100 countries around the world.
Some of my adventures include:
Diving w/ hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos
Biking the "Death Road" in Bolivia
Hiking tallest mountain range in Africa
Re-living Roman times at Amphitheater of Hierapolis
Posing with world's largest flower species - the rafflesia
Marveling the vastness of the World's largest desert - the Sahara
4 day trail to the seven wonder of the World - Machu Picchu
Morning sunrise at world's oldest temple - Angkor Wat
