Check out this wonderful podcast. This is from Tim Ferriss. He interviews Joshua Waitzkin on mastery. Delightful and insightful
Josh Waitzkin was the basis for the book and movie Searching for Bobby Fischer.
Considered a chess prodigy, he has perfected learning strategies that can be applied to anything, including his other loves of Brazilian jiu-jitsu (he’s a black belt under phenom Marcelo Garcia) and Tai Chi Push Hands (he’s a world champion). These days, he spends his time coaching the world’s top performers, whether Mark Messier, Cal Ripken Jr., or hedgefund managers. I initially met Josh through his incredible book, The Art of Learning, which I loved so much that I helped produce the audiobook (download here, at Audible or DRM-free Gumroad).
This episode is DEEP, in the best way possible. Josh will blow your mind.
And for a change from Episode 1, I’m totally sober. I’d be curious to know which Tim you prefer.
