Ep 486: Building A Second Brain


As an end-of-year special, this week is productivity week on the podcast.

With so much going on and so many competing pressures, I know that everyone listening will, at least at some point in 2022, have had challenges with focus and information overload. Talent Acquisition is evolving quickly, and managing attention and processing information are vital skills that aren’t highlighted as much as they should be.

My first guest on productivity week is one of the world’s leading personal knowledge management systems experts. Tiago Forte is the Founder of Forte Labs and the creator of the brilliant Building a Second Brain. BASB is a very effective knowledge and information management system I can personally vouch for as I used it to write my book “Digital Talent.”

Tiago has created a popular online course and a book on Building a Second Brain, and in our discussion, he gives us an excellent insight into the system.

In the interview, we discuss:

• The story behind BASB

• Are employers giving knowledge workers effect support around information overload?

• Personal Knowledge Management

• Shifting from top down to individual

• The key elements of BASB

• Capture, Organize, Distill, Express

• The role of technology

• How I reactivated ten years of lost Kindle highlights

• Taking the first steps
