“Ultimately, motivation is a set of habits and routines, guided by your values and your identity that you carry out every day.”

I have extracted this powerful quote from Jim Kwik’s epic book, ‘Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life.’

What a book! Jim Kwik writes it in a conversational style that will appeal to most people since it doesn’t come forth as a one-way lecture. I first knew Jim Kwik through those irritating YouTube ads. Am sure glad that his ad interrupted my video that day! In his book, he vividly narrates how he metamorphosed from a kid with a ‘broken brain’ to a preeminent authority on learning.

Although I am only at the mid-way point of this book, I am already devouring practical insights on better, faster, learning. One of my takeaways at this stage is on the power of participatory learning. While I have known about participatory learning for a long time, Jim presents this concept in a fresh manner that drives it home in a very refreshing manner.

Here are snippets of some of the treasure you will unearth as you read this book:

‘Pain can be your teacher, if you use it and not let it use you. Use pain to drive you to make things happen.’ Je suis d’accord. I agree. I even wrote about the immense power of heartbreak to drive you into a better person.

‘Setting boundaries around your time, emotions, mental health, and space is incredibly vital..’ A timely message for those of us who are too generous with our time..

‘It’s not how smart you are; it’s how you are smart.’ As you read this part of the book, Jim will convince you that you (yes, YOU) are a smart person.

Go ahead and get yourself a copy of this book. It will be more than worth your money and worth your time.
