If you can work for 30 minutes with complete focus, you can work for an hour with complete focus.
If you can work for an hour with complete focus, you can work for several hours with complete focus.
If you can work for several hours with complete focus, you’ll get way more done than just about everyone else.
Probably more than you’ve ever gotten done before.
Thirty minutes doesn’t sound like much, but if you know how to define tasks and give them your complete attention, it can be huge.
Think back. You’ve almost certainly experienced this before.
Maybe it was a moment of great inspiration, maybe it was a task you really liked, maybe the stars of energy, environment, and motivation just aligned to give you a golden moment.
Whatever the case, you’ve probably experienced it, but it likely doesn’t happen often. You probably view it as luck or a fluke, something you have no control over.
While it’s true that inspiration can be an elusive goal, people over glamorize it and in doing so, make it seem rarer and harder than it actually is.
True, it isn’t easy, but it’s more more learnable and controllable than you think, mostly by managing energy, resting deliberately, and learning how to direct your attention for relatively short periods.
People think think of elite focus as having to work long, punishing hours, or exert huge amounts of willpower to keep their attention on the task at hand.
They know they’d get more done, but it seems difficult and miserable.
This is far from the truth.
For starters, almost no one can do real mental work for hours upon hours per day. True focus burns out quickly, and no amount of willpower can restore it once this happens.
Further, if you’re having to try to direct your attention, you’ll never really succeed. Everyone has tried this and failed at it, but somehow almost everyone still thinks it’s possible.
It isn’t, and it doesn’t need to be.
The art of focus is something that I’ve been working on for a few years now. I started out of sheer necessity, when I realized that my solidly average ability to concentrate wasn’t nearly good enough in a competitive career field.
I learned a lot along the way, with a lot of trial and a lot of error, but I eventually I synthesized a set of mindsets and simple systems that gave me radically improved control over my own attention.
This has allowed me to stay healthy and happy, and keep progressing in a competitive, high stress career, even while running side projects and keeping up with my family and friends.
The thing is, I’m not a high energy guy. I need a lot of sleep and a lot of downtime. I succeeded not because I could work all the time, or because I’m superhumanly efficient (I’m not) or highly organized (which I am definitely not).
It really comes down to the fact that I had some useful skills, and I learned how to apply them with complete focus for short periods, followed by strategic rest.
Basically, the difference between struggling in my career (while having no other endeavors) and being very successful (while working on several side projects) largely came down to learning how to work with focus for 30 minutes.
I’m oversimplifying, but not by much.
It’s not long hours, or sophisticated organization systems, or apps or hacks or anything else that people so often talk about.
It’s 30 minutes, done right.
I’m opening up my best teaching on how to master this short but critical periods of time for a short but critical period of one week – the morning of Monday, October 12th through 11:59 PM EST on Friday, October 16th.
The course is short, but it will revolutionize how you work if you apply it.

So, try it.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
