#1 Danny Forest: Top Medium Writer & Obsessive Learner

Play
Read more
Danny Forest is a self-proclaimed obsessive learner that attempts to learn 3 new skills a month.

A couple of years ago I reached out to him via email to ask for some advice about learning new skills and he was nice enough to give me his time and answer a few questions. Fast forward two years later, he kindly agreed to join me on the podcast to talk about what he’s currently up to.

In 2018, Danny took up writing on Medium and within a year he became one of the top writers in a number of different categories. He attributes his success to his routine and following through with it.

From approaching a new skill to the tools he uses to stay on top of skill learning, we talk on a number of topics related to skill learning.

Today's guest is Danny Forest. Danny is your friendly neighborhood Viking polymath. When he’s not madly typing on his computer from a coworking space, you can find him exploring the world and making new connections. His current obsessions include skill development and productivity.

Danny lives a digital nomad lifestyle with his wife, who works for Medecins Sans Frontiere. Since they are often separated while she is on a mission, Danny has figured out ways to improve his life and skill set every month. He stays in most locations for at least three months to get the most out of his personal connectivity in the location.

Danny is an obsessive learner and has created his own plan to learn three new skills every single month, which he has been perfecting for more than a year. Through this process, he has proven to himself, and to others, that you can learn anything if you devote the time to doing it.

Jonathan and Danny discuss Danny's writing process and how he stays creative while traveling the world. It's Danny's dedication to learning that has led to him being described as a polymath.
