Hi, I'm Alex

Alex Brogan

I write content that reaches over 650k people around the world on Twitter, my newsletter (Faster Than Normal™), and more. The purpose of my content is to explore how to get better at the many 'games' of life—whether creative, business, sporting, or otherwise—and share my learnings so you can do the same. I'm still figuring most things out, so I focus on the best of what others have already figured out.

You can also follow me on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

How My Writing Will Benefit You

At the core of my writing is the belief that every personal, career, or interpersonal challenge has already been solved.

My goal is to find, curate, and present those solutions in an accessible and actionable manner.

If I’m succeeding, you should not only understand the concepts that I’m sharing, but understand how to incorporate them in your life to achieve better, faster results.

I’ll touch on a broad range of topics including:

  • Mental models and frameworks (across all major disciplines: science, commerce, philosophy, history, etc.)
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Accelerated learning and memory
  • Personal growth
  • Life lessons

I'm still figuring most things out, so I focus on the best of what others have already figured out. Simply put, I’m interested in what works. I hope what I share works for you too.

You can start by reading my articles, learning courses, or access my 2nd brain.

Former Water Polo Player & Swimmer

  • For my sins (it’s a hard sport), I spent 8+ years chasing a Water Polo dream ending with Australian representation.

  • At my best, I nailed a 24.9 seconds for 50m freestyle and 27.4 seconds for 50m butterfly (for the swimmers out there!).
