Twenty-five years ago, I started a simple website to promote and teach accelerated learning techniques to help usher in a ‘mental revolution’. I was young, idealistic, and had no idea that I was about to run into a brick wall (several, actually).
It took two decades to figure out what was really happening. While many have realized that lifelong learning is no longer optional, adult learning still needs to be destigmatized, embraced, and re-engineered. And all of those techniques for improved memory, reading speed, creativity and general intelligence…well, they need to be reframed and relegated as true genius goes way beyond parlor tricks and passing exams.
Ultimately, this site is about managing the hidden costs of lifelong learning, navigating the frustrations of self-directed learning, and rediscovering your natural genius through a new hierarchy of learning skills. Welcome to Genius By Design.
