189: Jim Kwik – Becoming Limitless

Podcast

“If you fight for your limitations, you get to keep them.”

Today’s exciting episode was produced in conjunction with the magazine Undo-Ordinary, and we have an exceptional returning guest, the fabulous Jim Kwik. We last did a podcast episode with Jim about four or five years ago already, so we were thrilled to sit him down to dive into his 20+ years spent as a kind of brain coach as well as going in-depth about his new book, “Limitless“.

In today’s episode, Jim talks about how chronic stress affects the brain, ways to create more self-awareness, and why kindness is so important.
