Hey there, SuperFriend!
If you’re reading this, my guess is that you’ve never quite been satisfied with “good enough.”.
You’re allergic to average and are always looking to improve.
You’re always seeking that next level of success whether it be in your career, your health, or your relationships.
And if that’s you, and you’re that person who has a never-ending stack of books you want to read, hobbies you want to try, and new skills you want to learn...
...you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re ready to take your career and life to the next level, read on.
I was 13 when I first considered suicide.
Sounds dramatic, but you don’t have to be a clinical psychologist to figure out how I ended up at that point.
Starting as early as preschool, I was always the trouble student. The one who had difficulty keeping up. The class clown.
When I was little, it was cute.
But by sixth grade, I found myself in a new school, and suddenly, school was a serious place. The class clown thing wasn’t cute anymore.
My classes were hard. Really hard. Even English, my strongest subject, was somehow over my head. Mathematics and science, on the other hand, were outright impossible.
But I wasn’t just falling behind in the classroom.
Whereas other kids seemed to be learning the valuable social (and romantic) skills necessary to survive middle school, I found myself in a scary new world, with new rules and norms that I didn’t understand.
Developmentally, I was completely unable to keep up. As my peers were developing and growing into young adults, I looked in the mirror, and saw an immature and incapable kid with nothing to be proud of.
That, in combination with the endless bullying and being considered one of the “dumbest” kids in school, is why I considered suicide.
FAST FORWARD 12 YEARS
It was 2011.
I was admitted to INSEAD, one of the world’s top business schools, for a condensed, ten-month MBA in both Singapore and France. During the program, I knew I’d have to cram in two years’ worth of material in my weakest subjects.
And, on top of that, I’d have to pass certification tests in two foreign languages, move countries twice, maintain a side business, and somehow still have time for all of the travel and networking that MBA programs are really about.
Months before the program even began, I received a 1,200 page reading list, most of which I didn’t understand at all.
The best part?
My instructors assured me that this reading would give me a head start—for the first week of school. But unlike middle school, things were different this time.
This time, I was not only able to keep up with my peers... but in some subjects, I was able to surpass them.
On more than one occasion, other students pulled me aside to ask how I found time to read all the case studies before class, or why I had “given up” on the exam and left an hour early.
They didn’t understand: I had finished it.
In the years following my graduation, I was also able to...
... and much more.
What was it that changed?
I learned the only skill that matters.
You read my story.
You know that learning wasn’t my thing. I was so bad at it, it almost killed me.
And looking back, this happened because I never knew that there were other ways to learn.
Up until that point, I had always used rote memorization to remember things, repeating material over and over until it stuck. Most of the time, I felt like information just passed through me. New information just didn’t stick.
And if you’ve ever spent time re-learning things you’ve already learned, my guess is you know exactly what I’m talking about.
And deep down, you know the unspoken rule of the game we’re all playing: In our information economy, if you can’t learn quickly and and effectively, you’re going to get left behind.
When I say “I re-learned how to learn” I’m NOT talking about “study strategies” or “brain hacks.”
I’m talking about an entirely different way to perceive information and make it more memorable.
And the best part?
I can show you how.
