👋 Hey there!
🚅 This is issue #22 of The Double E Bullet where I share two bullets of things you should know about and to help you elevate your entrepreneurial journey.
In this TED Talk, brain researcher Dr. Lara Boyd explains how neuroplasticity alters our brain to support learning, resulting in us acquiring new skills. It reminded me a lot about what Jim Kwik says about our brain memory in his book Limitless: “There is no such thing as a good or bad memory. There’s only a trained memory and an untrained memory”.
Watch Dr Boyd’s presentation if you’re looking for the best ways to learn something new and healthy brain behaviors.
📱 App: Shortform
In my quest tor read more books, I realised that book summaries apps can be quite the game changer. Over the last year, I’ve tried quite a few of them from Lucid to Blinkist and now Shortform.
It’s been two months of me using the app and I’ve covered about 4 book summaries! I really like the app’s aesthetics and also that they weave their own insights into the book and even bring in opposing views on the subject.
Really cool to see those as it makes you question the idea the author of the book is presenting. The list of books is growing rapidly and has all of the big hitters you and I most want to read. I was hooked right after the free trial!
I’ve started a series called Habits and Systems for Founders & Entrepreneurs where I share my favourite habits to help founders increase focus and reduce overwhelm – check out the series here.
🎙 Episode 1 of the 2nd season just dropped on the Elevated Entrepreneur Podcast! It’s a new direction in terms of content, well sort in that the I’ve been talking about habits and mindset for quite some time now but now it’s official 🙌.
The first episode talks about my best 4 tips on overcoming procrastination which is sort of ironic because I procrastinated to release the second season 🤯
