I teach others how to do the same.
I am an aspiring polymath and lifelong learner. I can geek out on pretty much anything, and when I do, I geek hard. One day I might get it into my head to try beekeeping, the next, start researching how to freedive. I can spend a thousand lifetimes and never quench my thirst to learn. But I am certainly going to try with this one I have.
I knew that there were three limiting factors to my learning: how quickly I could consume information (speed reading), how much of that information I could retain and recall (memory), and how efficiently I could apply that knowledge (meta-learning).
- Because I learned speed reading, I can read the average novel in 90 minutes
- Because I trained in memory techniques, I have genius-level, practical memory
- Because I practice meta-learning, I can learn the fundamentals of a new language within a week
