Jim Kwik teaches people how to learn. He’s a world expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, and optimal brain performance. Jim had a brain injury when he was very young which caused learning disabilities and then he went on to become a master of the brain. His clients include Nike, Harvard, GE, Virgin and Singularity University. As the CEO and Founder of Kwik Learning, Jim even taught me how to speed read!

Show Notes:

  • Jim describes how a brain injury at age 5 eventually led to his most profound Why Not Now? moment.
  • We hear step-by-step exactly what happened the day Jim changed his life by asking himself Why Not Now?
  • We discuss the power of asking good questions.
  • Why after 25 years of intentionally not scaling his work, Jim is now evaluating ways to do so.
  • Jim’s current Why Not Now? moment was sparked after a near-death experience.
  • How Jim keeps his mind healthy.
  • What is Jim reading right now? All-time favorite book?
  • What keeps Jim up at night?
  • Pirates or Ninjas, who’s tougher according to Jim?
  • What advice Jim would give his younger self?
