As a kid, Jim Kwik was the “kid with the broken brain.” But through curiosity and sheer will, he learned how to hack his own brain. Today, he is recognized as one of the top brain trainers in the world.
“I had three traumatic brain injuries before the age of 12," he says. "I had very poor focus. I was put in special classes, and it took me three years longer to learn how to read. My teachers would have been surprised if I read a book, much less wrote a book.”
The author of the bestselling book, Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life (and the founder of Kwik Learning), the "brain hacker" shares with Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena the most important things to include in your morning routine. And even more importantly, he tells Joe what NOT to do.
As always, Spartan's CEO wants to know Kwik’s origin story, whether doing hard things strengthens your brain for later challenges, and how nutrition and exercise affect the brain. On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, Kwik digs into the truth behind each of these questions.
