The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

As a kid Jim Kwik was the “the kid with the broken brain,” but through curiosity and sheer will he learned to hack his own brain and today is recognized as one of the top brain trainers in the world. “I had three traumatic brain injuries before the age of 12. I had very poor focus. I was put in special classes took me three years longer to learn how to read. My teachers would have been surprised I read a book much less wrote a book.” The author of the best selling book “Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life,” and founder of Kwik Learning tells Spartan founder Joe De Sena the most important things to include in your morning routine, but more importantly - what NOT to do. As always, De Sena wants to knowKwik’s origin story,  whether doing hard things now strengthens your brain for later challenges, and how nutrition and exercise affect the brain. Listen in for the answers.   

“There's no limit to our determination to our ability to solve problems, no limit to our creativity, our imagination, our ability to persevere.”


  1. Be the thermostat, not the thermometer
