Released Tuesday, 1st November 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
What would life be like if you could read people’s minds? Of course “mind reading” isn’t magic.  However, why mind reading tricks work is fascinating stuff.  What is even more fascinating is knowing the power of an understanding of how the mind works. This can be used to take risks successfully, improve performance, and design your life.  That is exactly what I discuss with my guest on this week’s episode (among many other things).
Meet “mind reader”, mentalist, coach, author and entertainer Jonathan Pritchard (check out his main project http://www.likeamindreader.com/).  Jonathan also hosts a podcast and runs a website called “A Life Well Designed” (in which I had the pleasure recently of being a guest).  He’s also a martial artist (he studies Wing Chun) and we connect all of these threads, plus a few more in this super fun conversation that covers:
  • Mind reading and mentalism;
  • How mind reading can be applied to lifestyle design;
  • Why and how pickpocketing works;
  • “Echo time” versus “real time”;
  • Martial arts;
  • Design concepts and lifestyle design;
  • Cognitive psychology and how we navigate reality
  • Much more!
