#4 Dimitris Gkiokas: The Meta Learners

Dimitris Gkiokas

On top of being the founder of The Meta Learners, Dimitris is also the founder of one of the most successful Greek podcast on self-improvement, The Brain Hacking Academy and is a core member of Jonathan Levi’s SuperHuman Academy leadership team.

In today’s episode, Dimitris and I go deep into different learning techniques, mental models and how procrastination almost took a hold of his life. We talk about his past, his addiction to video games and how he managed to break free from it. For someone who “wasted his life away”, it’s amazing to see how he turned it around and managed to achieve so much.
