Two Brains Are Better Than One
What is a Second Brain?
Have you ever read a book and forgot what it was about 3 months down the road? Perhaps you found a web-design but later on couldn’t find the link. How about the mounds of projects that you tell yourself you’ll get to yet never seem to find time to accomplish.
In a world where there is an endless supply of information, it can be difficult to retain this knowledge.
These are the problems that a Second Brain is created to solve. Having a Second brain allows you to live freely, gathering as much information as your heart desires, storing, and turning it into results that show the world just how awesome you are.
