    E135: Natasha De Teran – The Hidden World of Payments

    E135: Natasha De Teran – The Hidden World of Payments

    On this week’s episode of Life and Lessons, you’re going to hear a conversation I had with Natasha De Teran. 
    Natasha is a co-author of the book The Pay Off. She spent two decades of her career on trading floors and was the head of corporate affairs at SWIFT for eight years. 
    In the next hour, you’re going to learn:

    How changing the way we pay for things changes everything about the society we live in, and the way it functions.
    How payments actually work, and the intricate network of systems that your money goes through each and every time you tap your card or enter your pin number.
    Whether or not things like Contactless, Apple Pay and Buy Now Pay Later are making us think less and spend more.
    Whether or not Natasha thinks Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have merit.
    And so much more.

    E133: Tiago Forte – Build a Second Brain and Remember Anything

    On this week’s episode of Life and Lessons, you’re going to hear a conversation I had with Tiago Forte 
    Tiago is the founder of Forte Labs, one of the most respected productivity and knowledge management minds on the planet, and author of the book Building a Second Brain
    In the next hour, you’re going to learn: 

    What a second brain is, how you can build your own, and the time and productivity benefits that come along with it 
    The four steps to capture, organise, distil, and express every piece of useful knowledge you've ever encountered, to unlock way more capacity from your brain
    Whether or not Tiago really is the superhuman productivity god that the internet would have you believe 
    Why the answers to your biggest productivity problems won’t be solved by an app, or a plugin, but rather, by looking introspectively and asking yourself difficult questions
    And so much more.
