Our guest this week is Tansel Ali – 3x Australian Memory Champion, Author & Speaker/Consultant.
This is actually Part 1 of our chat with Tansel, so make sure you check out part 2 which gets really in-depth on other topics!
Tansel is often referred to and well known for memorizing the Sydney Yellow Pages, an exercise that systematically showed what the human brain is truly capable of.
We talked with Tansel about the strategies and approach he used to achieve what seems like the impossible. He shared his thoughts on how other people can learn to do the same thing, and the false assumptions we’re making about the capacity of our brains and our ability to learn.
Then we let the discussion unfold into some great explorations on creativity, social norms and more.
Thanks again to Tansel and we hope you enjoy this chat!
