“Your learning curve is determined by the details.”
— Zach Evans

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Zach Evans and Zach actually came to us through a recommendation of someone in the SuperLearners Facebook group. Zach is a professional pianist who has also started very successful online music and piano training business, and he specializes in accelerated learning techniques for piano.

Now I know some of you in the audience are saying right now “well I'm not interested in playing the piano, why does this relate to me?” I would encourage you to put that thought aside, because actually, Zach and I got into some pretty in-depth accelerated learning techniques… and I have to say I actually learned quite a bit from him in terms of things that I'm not doing that I could be doing better. Including some things that could improve the way that I learn, and ways that I've maybe been neglecting to structure out my own learning process.

Zach really shares some very interesting stuff just about how learning a musical instrument, like learning a language, can be an incredible way to improve, refine, and test your learning methodology. And I think you guys are going to learn quite a bit from this episode. If you enjoy it, please note that there are many like it in the SuperLearner MasterClass – including an uncut video version of this one.

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
