370: The Reason Behind Your Addiction

How does dopamine shape your desires—both positively and negatively? Dopamine is one of many neurotransmitters produced in your brain and is most commonly associated with pleasure. But there’s actually more to it than that. It’s the basis of motivation, incentivizing you to do things because you want something. And while that can lead to success and discoveries, it can also result in addictions of all shapes and sizes. I’m excited to talk to our guest today, Dr. Daniel Lieberman, MD. Dr. Lieberman is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University. He’s also the co-author of the international bestseller, The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity — and Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race. The nature of dopamine is to push for more. But that actually shifts your focus from the present moment into the future where you only see what you don’t have. That can lead to feeling chronically dissatisfied and unable to enjoy the things you’ve worked hard for. Listen in as Dr. Lieberman shows you how you can leverage this powerful chemical to go after the good and let go of the bad.

Do your social connections impact the food you eat? What you eat matters, especially for your gray matter.

What are some healthy habits to incorporate into your evening routine to optimize your sleep?  On average, you’ll spend roughly one-third of your life sleeping.

346: Break the Limit: Why 1% More Effort Can Change Your Life

Can one extra degree of effort make a difference when it comes to reaching your goals?  The first step in goal-getting is mindset. You have to assess the attitudes and assumptions you have towards everything related to your goal. Before you can make significant progress, you have to first believe it’s possible. Then you have to work for it. Today, I want to explore how to adjust your mindset by looking at the amount of effort you’re willing to put in. The difference between success and failure isn’t talent, education, or access. It’s the energy you exert every single day. Effort is about progress not perfection. It’s about being able to advance and evolve beyond what you currently believe is possible.

310: Unlock And Boost Your Multiple Intelligences

How can you boost and unlock your multiple intelligences? There’s a common misunderstanding that there is one type of intelligence. Maybe you took a standardized test when you were in school, and that score was how you defined your IQ. But research shows that not only are there multiple types of intelligence, but it isn’t a fixed number either. I’m going to dive into this research on today’s show. Specifically, I’m going to go over Howard Gardner’s eight types of intelligences, plus a few extra, and some examples of how they might have developed or shaped your experiences of the world. I talk a lot about the importance of having a growth mindset and this is why. You can improve your intelligence, but you first have to believe it’s possible. Listen in, as I describe each of the eight types of intelligences and visualize each one to determine which type—or types—you connect with the most. ***If you’re inspired, I want to invite you to join me in my brand NEW 10-day course, specifically designed to boost your productivity.

306: The Key To Long-Life Learning with Chip Conley

What are the keys to long-life learning? There’s a difference between being a life-long learner and long-life learner. How you learn at thirty years old is different from how you learn at sixty years old. As you age, your brain changes, which then transforms how you look at certain topics, what you want to learn about, and why you want to learn about them. To go deeper into this topic, I’m thrilled to have Chip Conley as our special guest today. Chip is the founder and CEO of Modern Elder Academy, which focuses on the value of intergenerational collaboration in companies. His latest book, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, encourages people to rethink the value of having five generations contributing to the workspace. Long-life learning is the idea your thoughts are part of a holistic, systemic process that adapts as you age. Your focus and interests shift into seeking deeper meaning in the topics and subjects you study. Society tends to focus on how long you live. Listen in, as Chip explains why he believes the focus should be on depth and how you can become a long-life learner. ***If you’re inspired, I want to invite you to join me in my brand NEW 10-day course, specifically designed to boost your productivity.

302: Make The Placebo Effect Work for You with Erik Vance

How do you make the placebo effect work for you? We talk a lot about the power of mindset. Before you can achieve any goal, you have to believe it’s possible and change your inner self-talk to support that belief. There’s powerful science that shows that the way you choose to see the world can physically affect your mind and your body, but you can even change your business, your brand, and beyond. I’m excited to have this conversation today with our guest Erik Vance. Erik is a science journalist and an editor with The New York Times Well desk. He’s also the author of the book, Suggestible You: The Curious Science of Your Brain’s Ability to Deceive, Transform, and Heal. Research into the power of suggestibility shows that your brain relies on analyzing the past to make predictions about the future. And it takes a lot of shortcuts based on what it expects the outcome to be. Listen in, as Erik talks about how you can use the power of these expectations and beliefs to achieve extraordinary results in any area of your life. ***If you’re inspired, I want to invite you to join me in my brand NEW 10-day course, specifically designed to boost your productivity.

301: How To Use Physical Activity For Better Focus

Can physical exercise boost your brain power and focus? You’ve heard me say, as your body moves, the brain grooves. That’s because the primary reason you have a brain is to control the movement in your body. And as you move, your brain creates brain-derived neurotropic factors, which is like fertilizer for the brain. Today, I want to welcome you to do this Kwik challenge with me. I believe that when you challenge yourself in one area, you learn how to challenge yourself in other areas of your life. That’s how you build strength and mental resilience. You can make real change in your life simply by challenging yourself to do brand new things. It adds novelty to your life, which creates new brain connections and stimulates neural growth.

298: How to Unlearn Fear Using the Limitless Model

How do you unlimit your fear? Fear is hardwired into your brain, and it isn’t always a bad thing. It’s meant to keep you safe, but in our modern world, stress is often misidentified in the brain as fear. This can trigger your fight, flight, or freeze response, and that can hurt your productivity, hinder your performance, and take away your peace of mind. In today’s episode, I want to talk about fear through the lens of the Limitless model. Using Mindset, Motivation, and Methods as a framework can not only help you achieve your goals, but it can help you identify what’s holding you back. No one is immune to feeling scared, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re afraid of heights or public speaking—both are very real in that moment. Fear can limit what you do, but like all limited beliefs, it’s learned. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed or uncertain and aren’t sure how to face the fear holding you back, this episode is for you.

How can you triple your time-management capacity? We’ve all had days where time seems to fly. Or a morning where we’ve gotten more done in a few hours than the last two weeks combined. But time isn’t elusive and the one thing all super productive individuals have in common is that they’ve learned not just how to control their time but maximize it. To talk about this important topic, I’m thrilled to have Ed Mylett on our show today. Ed is an entrepreneur, keynote speaker, philanthropist, podcast host, and best-selling author of #Max Out Your Life: Strategies for Becoming an Elite Performer and The Power of One More: The Ultimate Guide to Happiness and Success.

288: Stay Hydrated To Build a Happier And Brighter Brain

How do you become a master of your own behaviors and habits? All habits begin with small, simple steps. That’s why I break down my morning routine into bite-sized actions and periodically turn them into easy challenges for you to do every day. One tiny action can compound into big change. This week’s Kwik Challenge is to stay hydrated. You can lose up to a pound of water while you sleep, which means you’re likely dehydrated when you wake up. Drinking water is vital for brain and body health—especially as we head into peak summer heat. Change doesn’t have to be difficult. I often talk about how the treasures of your life are hidden in your daily routine, and you can uncover them by making small adjustments to your behaviors. Listen in, as I go over the six benefits for staying hydrated and give you some Kwik tips on how to incorporate more water into your daily routine. *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

287: Never Forget a Password or Seed Phrase

How do you remember your seed phrase for your crypto wallet—or any password—easily and effortlessly? Have you ever come up with a password, PIN number, or code only to forget it when you need it most? Or maybe you haven’t forgotten it, but you worry that you will. We live in a technological world, where online security is vital in ensuring your personal, professional, and financial information stays safe. Today, I want to walk you through a memory exercise to help you remember lists in sequential order. When it comes to certain things—like your crypto seed phrase—the specific order is key. This method is designed to help you learn any series of words, events, places, and more. I believe the two most costly words in life are “I forgot”. Every time you forget something, you lose time, productivity, relationships, and potentially wealth. Even if you don’t have a password or phrase you need to memorize, this exercise is a great way to stretch your memory muscles. Listen in, as I teach you a fun and effective technique to recall twelve random words. *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Is setting goals the best way to unlock your true potential? We talk a lot about the importance of goal setting and how to set smart goals.

227: The 3 Keys for Unleashing Momentum

How do you build up momentum?  Today, I want to talk about creating momentum in your learning and your life.  To become an unstoppable force where you don’t bounce back, you jump forward and create velocity. Because that’s what momentum is.  If you look up the word in physics, momentum equals mass times velocity. You are mass, and I want you to become the mass in motion. Because when you don’t have momentum, you’re stuck or held back.  An object in motion tends to stay in action, but an object at rest tends to remain at rest.  I’d like you to think about what area in your life would like to have more positive momentum towards your hopes and dreams.  Where would you like to be an unstoppable force, and how would you apply that momentum?  Listen in as I share the three keys for unleashing positive momentum.  *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

172: 5 Things I'm Doing During COVID-19

What are 5 tangible things you can do during COVID-19? When thinking about how to look at self-isolation and social distancing in a positive light, the butterfly came to mind. The butterfly is a powerful symbol of change but more importantly, for self-transformation. They begin as a caterpillar and embark on an incredible journey, where through the process of metamorphosis, they transform into a butterfly. It's a powerful metaphor, speaking to our own ability to move through our life cycles. Right now, we're all in a metaphorical cocoon, safe and secure in our four walls. And within our cocoon, we face our own struggles. We know that through struggle comes strength and with challenge comes change. So while we're in this cocoon of our home, instead of feeding our fear, our doubts, our regrets, our loneliness, we have the opportunity to identify the thoughts that no longer serve us. Because the same level of thinking that got us where we are isn't going to get us where we need to go. To help with this transformation, I want to give you the FIVE things I'm doing while staying at home.  *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Our thinking changes the shape of our lives, so the questions we ask ourselves matter, whether it’s “how can I learn this?” or “how can I get healthier?” We’re asking ourselves questions all the time, but we’re often not conscious of them and how they impact our behavior. Used properly, questions are a useful tool to take the knowledge and turn it into action.  In this episode, you’ll hear from my friends at the Mindpump Media Podcast and how you can uncover the questions you might not have been aware you were asking yourself, and how to use them to effect change in your life—and.  We also talk about how our brain chooses what subjects to focus on, how our memories work, and quick tips for learning and notetaking. I’ll take you through 3 quick questions to help you turn knowledge into action, then explain how you can work out what the dominant question in your life is.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

137: How to Complain Effectively with Guy Winch

You might associate complaining with negativity, but when used in the right way, complaints can be a powerful tool to improve our relationships, achieve results and effect meaningful change in the world around us. The key is learning how to do it right—which is why we have Guy here to teach us a simple formula to effectively bring up complaints in a way that will encourage positive resolution rather than unhelpful arguments.  If you have issues in your life that are bringing you discomfort, and you’ve previously been reluctant to bring them up with the people involved for fear of starting a conflict, today’s episode will help you negotiate that process with confidence.  Guy’s books have sold millions of copies and been translated into 26 different languages, and his TED Talks have been seen by people all over the world.  In this conversation, we talk about the difference between venting and complaining, how to choose which issues to complain about, and how to avoid a complaining victim mentality. Guy will then explain why it’s important to complain in a constructive way, and take us through a formula you can use to achieve a positive end result from a complaint.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

136: How to Have Mental Longevity

The traditional story about aging is that as we age, we slow down, become trapped in our habits, and forget to play. The good news is that we can avoid this, and we can all learn to use our brains to change our age. Who doesn’t want to live longer? And not only longer, but better?  I’ve talked before on the podcast about the study of nuns published by Time magazine—all of them were living youthfully despite being aged 90 and above—and the secrets to their longevity were their gratitude, faith and their dedication to lifelong learning. They were lifelong learners—just like you and me! In today’s episode, I’ll remind you to schedule time to build your mental fitness, speak about the power of imagination to literally change the way you age, and the importance of retaining playfulness in your life as you grow older. I’ll take you through the 10 steps to healthy aging, and ask you to consider your progress on each step.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

You’ve heard me talk before on the show about the myth of knowledge being power—we know that it only becomes a power when we use it.  So today’s episode is designed to help you use your power, and get what you want by doing it.  Many of us spend our days telling ourselves we’re not good enough and not smart enough—or we give our power to things outside of us, and passively go through our days rather than reminding ourselves of our power and responsibility.  In today’s episode, I’ll help you to break yourself out of passive thinking, and get you doing rather than just dreaming. I’ll give you some tips to remind yourself of your power, tell you how to write to-do lists that will change the shape of your day, and shift your thinking from wishful thinking to actively pursuing your dreams.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

112: Mindful Leadership with Presidential Candidate - Tim Ryan

How do you become a more mindful leader? Whether you’re a student, parent or entrepreneur, how do you lead yourself and how do you lead others for a place of mindful connection and development? Representative Tim Ryan recently announced his run for president and has a long history representing working-class families in Ohio. What you might not know about Tim is that in addition to his service as a Congressman, Tim is an advocate for mindfulness, meditation, and health and is the author of two books on mindfulness and healthy food. Mindfulness and leadership are two of the most important words today. We’re living through fractured, disrupted times and calm thoughtful leaders will be essential in guiding communities back toward connectedness, imagination, and change. Unless we learn to reconnect with each other and work together, we will remain unable to solve the many problems facing us.   In this conversation, we discuss how mindfulness impacts our brains, and how adverse experiences impact the minds of younger generations coming up through our schools. We speak about how mindfulness has given the best leaders the strength to lead and maintain calm through challenging times and find the imagination to lead the country out of a challenge and towards change. Lastly, we talk about why social connectedness is so important in today’s fractured society and why the world needs you to take all the self-work you’ve been doing and start passing it on to your community. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

A common question from the Kwik Brain community is: why do most (more than half of all relationships) relationships fail? How can we move on from heartbreak?
