#120: Improve Your Memory, Productivity & Creativity ~Mattias Ribbing (pt2)

Mattias Ribbing, aka Grand Master of Memory, joins us for a fascinating part two on short term memory, productivity and focus.


Mattias held the Swedish Memory Champion title for three years in a row, and was internationally named the Grandmaster of Memory. Competing in memory sports, he would do things such as quickly memorising 1060 random digits without a mistake!


Mattias laid out the key tenants to great memory in episode #115: Boost Your Memory & Learning Skills ~Mattias Ribbing, Memory Champion.


In this episode, Matthias leans in on strengthening you short term memory, improving focus, productivity hacks, and the negative consequences of the technology explosion on our brain and our performance.


Mattias shares some incredible practical tools you’ll want to explore, as well as getting reflective and philosophical on the ruleless tech-heavy world we live in today.


This is a powerful, practical and highly relatable discussion, which should leave you asking some questions of your lifestyle and motivated to hack back for greater mental performance and productivity.
