NICK VELASQUEZ is a passionate learner and devoted student of mastery. He’s the author of the popular blog, where he writes about learning science, peak performance, creativity, and mastering skills. His writing has been featured in outlets such as TIME, Entrepreneur, Thrive Global, and Thought Catalogue. Nick speaks multiple languages and spends his time between Tokyo and Montréal.

We go deep down the rabbit hole of learning, mastery, the meaning of life and debate whether it's better to be realistic and depressed or disconnected from reality but content.

Why experimentation is key in the process of learning.

Why the most important piece of learning is “learning how to learn”.

Why Nick thinks that “learning styles” are a myth.

Why it’s harder to learn a language as you get older.

Why when it comes to skill the saying “you either have it or you don’t” is not fully true (and some real world examples of this).

Why you might not be as productive working from home.

And so much more. What a fun conversation.
