I’m happy to present the first episode of the life-long learning podcast. A new podcast by me where I talk about everything related to personal growth through constantly exploring and learning. In this episode I discuss what the podcast will be about, who it’s for and I also tell you about my background and why I think I’m the right person to guide you on your journey of growth.

As well as listening to the podcast here on my blog and you can also subscribe to the podcast on Itunes.

This podcast is about you the listener so please don’t hesitate to give me feedback so I can continue to improve  and give you what you need in each up and coming episode.

I look forward to receiving your feedback.

All the best,

David

    Wow David! As it is said in French, “Chapeau” (lit. hat) meaning that I take off my hat and praise you, hehe. I mean, I really loved it. Beautiful speech! Yeah! Actually, I would like something related to lack of self-esteem or lack of self-secureness! Also, things to avoid bad thoughts, things that inhibit success! In these moments, I kind of suffer that thanks to a subject I’m coursing now and that might ruin my career. So, you should consider this petition and also, it would be nice to hear from someone like you who has been through certain critical moments in life! So, once again, thanks to you for making this wonderful podcast! Hopefully you post it soon on itunes, to listen to it so often! Your friend
    Julio :-D

    Hello David,

    I really enjoy hearing about your experiences and your perspective. You’ve always seemed like a rational and enthusiastic person to me, and that is a perfect combination. Sometimes I feel like I hear a heaviness in your voice that now makes more sense to me, hearing about your hardships, but for those of us that find or can create the courage to overcome our hardships and rise above them life becomes more meaningful. Because we have suffered more, we can feel deeper than we otherwise could have.

    I am also a philomath and one day possibly a polymath and even polyglot. Learning and experiencing is what gives my life purpose, without it I would be lost. I haven’t yet learned a second language, but I know I will, and with a second will come a third and so and so fourth. My main interests are languages, science in general, philosophy, meta-learning, fitness & nutrition, and skateboarding (I’m a skateboarder). Some of my role models include Bruce Lee, Albert Einstein, and Neil Degrasse Tyson.

    Sorry for leaving such a large post, hope it isn’t off-putting.

    Sincerely,
    A fellow philomath

    Hey David

    I’ve been surfing the web and saw your website a couple times but I never really stayed long. This podcast caught my attention and I wanted to share some thoughts on some things you sad.

    First off, you said you had a difficult childhood. I grew up in switzerland in a good family. My parents always took care of me and helped solving problems I encountered, broken windows because of football and so on. Still there was something that didn’t feel quiet right in my life. I’ve always been a kind of “genius”. I never had to study for school until I went to university and by never I really mean never. I was always lonely. Not in my family but in school. It wasn’t easy for me, because I was always ahead of everybody else in terms of knowledge. 4 years ago I found out that I’m a sociopath. This means I’m not really able to feel what people around me feel. I can’t read feelings of other human beeings. At first this made me really sad. And then I found my passion in beeing a polymath. I teached myself programming languages, physics, math and I reached a level where I could easily do bachelor’s degree examns. That was the point in my life where I realised what really matters to me and I found my answer to the Question “Meaning of Life”.

    My point is, that despite the fact what your past looks like in the end, you are the writer of your life. Not someone else or your own past.

    I hope that you remain strong and that you achieve your goals. But most importantly don’t start defining yourself upon your past or your childhood.

    Btw: I just started studying spanish and russian and its really hard for me, because I’m more of a logical thinking person. That’s how I found your blog.

    Have a nice day.

      Hey there!

      I agree with what you said about the past not defining us. I believe, it prepares us for what’s to come. It’s up to us to decide to take what we want from it.

      Good luck with the language studies but the way.

      There’s are lots of golden tips in the polyglot project podcast – enjoy! :)
