How to Learn Anything Faster (and Be Way More Productive) with Lifehacker Timothy Moser
This week, I’m happy to host another lifestyle entrepreneur who, like myself, is focusing his time and energies on teaching productivity, memory, and accelerated learning. Like me, he has chosen to live outside his home country, and runs a blog and podcast, called Master of Memory. Like me, he’s teaching courses online that help you learn faster and memorize more. He also has a company and a podcast called Ace Productivity where he focuses on productivity hacks to help you get more out of your time. On top of all of this, he also shares my passion for lifestyle design and travel… So, of course, with so much in common… I was really excited to sit down and talk to him and compare notes!
In this episode, we talked about productivity, accelerated learning, lifestyle design, and much, much more. We actually go into some very unique tricks for language learning that actually kind of blew my mind in the level of detail and clarity that they offer. You’ll learn how to hack grammar using memory palaces, how to memorize maps, how to look at life more productively, and a lot of other super fascinating stuff.
This episode does build a little bit on our previous memory related episodes with Dr. Anthony Metivier and Nelson Dellis, so you should make sure to listen to those either before or after this one, if you haven’t already.
