If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you’ve probably heard me say that it’s not what you learn that really matters – it’s what you live that ultimately impacts your life.

Why? It’s simple: if you don’t apply what you’ve learned, it doesn’t do you much good.

However, the irony is that how you live begins with what you learn. We can only live a better life to the degree that we learn what exactly that looks like, and what it takes to live it.

Few people know this better than Jonathan Levi, author of the new book, The Only Skill That Matters, which explores the reasons and methods surrounding learning and memory – and will teach you how to learn anything three times faster.

Jonathan is a serial entrepreneur, author, and podcaster. Born and raised in Silicon Valley, he’s the face of  SuperHuman Academy and the author of Become a SuperLearner. .

Jonathan and I have known each other for over 20 years, and we recently reconnected when he had me on his SuperHuman Academy Podcast. Today, he joins the podcast to discuss the learning struggles he faced in his youth and the life-changing breakthrough he experienced, why improving your ability to learn is about much more than being able to impress people at parties, and actionable steps and processes you can take to live your learning.


  • Why learning is the first step to everything we do in life – and how information and application lead to transformation. 
  • The reason anyone can learn and make use of Jonathan’s learning skills – and why “super learning” is not science fiction. 
  • How self-talk and changing your mindset can improve performance, memory, and aptitude. 
  • Why failing to learn something is rarely on you – and how to fill in your knowledge gaps by learning from many different angles.
