In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, Tiago Forte, author of A Building a Second Brain: A Proven Method to Organize Your Digital Life and Unlock Your Creative Potential, talks about his innovative, time-tested method for the organization of ideas. What he calls “building a second brain” is a process of organizing, storing, and reflecting on ideas — all to make an “external impact” in your personal life or career. Sit down with host Brandon Laws as he talks with Tiago about his new book and about how his “second brain” has revolutionized his education and career. 



  • The “second brain” is a system that allows you to preserve and store all of your most important information.
  • Users reflect on, process, analyze, and understand this information to create an external impact.
  • A common pitfall is becoming an information collector without any particular purpose in mind. 
  • We improve communication by having better inputs: research, examples, metaphors, data points, stories — the supporting evidence that then becomes part of your communication.
  • When you keep a collection of very succinct notes all in one place, you start to notice connections or associations that you hadn’t recognized before.
