We are a team with over 40 years of experience in coaching, educating, and supporting others to become better learners.

Our belief is that the best way to do that is to give people the tools...

The Meaning We Give Makes Us Who We Are

Humans are fundamentally meaning makers. When anything significant happens, we give it meaning and then we live from within the cage of meaning that we created. We can do a much better job of this and here's how.

Read Faster and Comprehend More

How much time would it save you if you could read even twice as fast as you currently do. We cover the most usable techniques for increasing our reading speed and with that often dramatically increasing our comprehension.

Mini Series: Dealing with Depression

*This is not medical advice.*

In the 40+ years we’ve spent working with people, we’ve found that one of the most common reasons for people feeling down and depressed is their inability to see a future (or a way to that future) that they genuinely would be happy in. 

In this mini episode, we talk about a couple of ways to bridge the gap between where we are now and the future we want, one in which we can be happy, fulfilled, and genuinely engaged in. 

We have a full podcast coming out on...

Mini Series: What’s The Point?

We can often wonder, "what's the point?" 

There are a lot of things going wrong in the world right now - climate change, wars, etc. - and school asks students to do math homework? It can feel trivial and pointless at times.

We understand how that can feel, and want to offer a perspective that we hope will help you feel motivated and create meaning in the world despite, even because of everything going on.
