Hello!

Welcome back to Action Items a series of articles where we condense and extend each of our interviews into actionable bullet points—only for paid subscribers.

This week we’re covering one of our most popular interviews ever: How to Build a Learning Machine with Simon Eskildsen.

Simon is a curiosity machine, and he’s built a collection of systems to help him learn new things and apply everything he knows. He uses Readwise, Anki, and a custom-built Zettelkasten at a world-class level—meaning this interview is filled with great takeaways.

Today’s Action Item is 699 words—that’s 3 minutes and 29 seconds of actionable learnings.

Let’s dive in!
