James Garrett is a brainhacker and founder of Brain by Design. He’s spoken on stages ranging from Harvard to TEDx and his work has been featured by The New York Times, FastCompany, and Harvard Business Review. He spent years doing research with some of the best psychologists in the world at Columbia, Tufts, and Yale.
He built one of the only brain-based positive psychology curricula in the Middle East and trained thousands of Arab youth in partnership with Queen Rania of Jordan. A rare combination of scientist, trainer, and entrepreneur, in 2019 James launched the Deep Change Project, a year-long personal journey to discover what’s possible at the outer edges of brainhacking and neuroplasticity.
In today’s conversation with us, James explains how the brain works and the capacity to which we can redesign our brain. We explore the way peak athletes train, rest, and the difference between gold medalists and those who do not place on the podium. James also shares some of his personal discoveries over the past several months during his Deep Change Project; including how he has been able to avoid goal-drift, increase focus, connection, and experience greater joy.
Self-directed neuroplasticity is like the meta skill set of the future. If you can get good at rewiring your brain, you can get good at anything. Listen as James Garrett explains how.
