Brain coach used by Elon Musk’s SpaceX: 3 tips to learn anything faster

Brain coach Jim Kwik says billionaire Elon Musk hired him after they bonded over science fiction books like “Lord of the Rings” and Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation Series.”

“I think leaders are readers,” Kwik tells CNBC Make It.

After the Tesla and SpaceX CEO learned more about the work Kwik does — everything from teaching people how to speed read to helping them improve memory and accelerate learning — Musk was game.

″[Musk] brought me in because he realized, [like] the most successful people on the planet realize, that in order to be successful, you have to always be learning,” Kwik says.
