How would your life change if you could escape the mental slavery of distraction, lack of focus, and constant stress using a step-by-step blueprint that can DOUBLE your productivity in no time at all?
And I mean double your productivity without working harder, trying harder, or being more stressed.
In fact, if you take what I’m about to show you seriously, you’ll radically increase your productivity AS WELL AS your energy and your free time while DECREASING your feelings of stress and boredom.
It’s practically a superpower, but it’s surprisingly easy to learn and implement. Let me tell you about it…
One thing they tell you at places like Caltech is that if you can make it there, everything else will be easy.
That definitely ain’t so.
Things went well in college and in grad school – I found these things easier than people made them out to be.
OK, so grad school went alright until my advisor died tragically.
At that point, I decided I’d had enough of the ivory tower, and I went to work in the tech industry.
That was the point that things really started to go wrong.
In spite of being good at the relevant math, which they said was the hardest part, I struggled with stuff that isn’t generally regarded as that hard.
The thing about many jobs, even technical ones, is that while no given task is rocket science (and I should know – having gone to a “rocket science” kind of college), there’s a lot of tasks, with a lot of detail you have to pay close attention to and get done fast.
Add that to the constant distraction of email and inter-office messenger chats coming in all the time, coworkers talking all around you, etc., and if you aren’t really good at maintaining focus, it can soon start to feel like being on the losing end of a boxing match.
No sooner do you recover from one blow to your focus (IF you recover) than another hits you from a different angle.
Struggling with what shouldn’t have been a big deal, day after day, started getting to me.
What if this was the rest of my life? I didn’t really know anything else to do.
Also, in competitive industries, you can get the feeling that every day you’re not quite keeping up is digging you into a hole, just a little bit deeper, in a way that might be permanent.
When it comes to a specific career track, you don’t get infinite chances to restart, and just as success can snowball, so can failure.
It wasn’t a great time.
Then, in one of my early jobs, I got a clue as to how it could be fixed.
It’s always hard to say for sure why one person makes it and another doesn’t, but working with this guy gave me some ideas.
He was very smart and with an impressive educational background – however, LOTS of people I’ve known fit that description, and hardly any could match him.
You know what I noticed about him?
Actually the opposite – pretty normal work hours, healthy family life and habits, and probably a bit less stressed than the average.
But when he worked, he WORKED.
No playing on his phone, no goofing off on Facebook or compulsively checking email, none of that nonsense we all so easily do and dismiss as no big deal.
I copied a few of these things, and they helped A LOT.
I was still a long way from his level, but even with just these basic improvements, the difference in my productivity and income was dramatic.
In the job that followed that one, I was making 2.5X more.
I went from being paid okay but but constantly worry about keeping my job to being one of the highest paid employees at a cutting-edge startup – in spite of being relatively young.
Things were going great at this gig for quite awhile, but I realized after awhile that I still wasn’t taking full advantage of my abilities and opportunities.
I realized that focus was more than just the absence of distraction – it was a skill that could be trained with no clear upper limit, just like writing, drawing, programming, playing an instrument, or problem solving.
So, I started figuring out how to train it directly, and my productivity steadily increased.
Interestingly, my energy also improved and my stress went down – even as my workplace fell into political turmoil as the result of growth and reorganization.
I thought I was probably pretty close to my personal limit after about 9 months of this improvement, but near the end of that period, I made a series of discoveries that, when stacked on top of the training I had been doing and the techniques I already knew, kicked me to one new level after another. Very soon,
This stuff has become my personal mission, because it impacts just about everyone.
In fact, it probably impacts YOU.
- You’re a high school student who is anxious about getting into a good college – which gets more competitive every year. I’ve been there.
- You’re already in college, and you’re struggling to stay ahead of a heavy course load, except, unlike in high school, the work is harder, there’s less structure, and there are WAY more distractions. I’ve been there too.
- You’re a working professional, like I am now, and are fighting to stay afloat – maybe even daring to hope for progress – in a competitive and unpredictable job market. I know what it’s like to work hard and expend all your energy on a job and STILL not feel like you’re making progress or gaining any security. This is very common, but it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, I went from just hanging on at a dead-end tech job to commanding radically higher compensation (2.5X) at a better company, in large part by improving my focus skills.
- You’re an aspiring entrepreneur, struggling to keep your day job going and your bills paid while you launch something on the side. I’ve been there – I AM there – and know first hand that if you can’t focus in the face of a ton of distractions and competing priorities, that side project is almost certainly going to remain a dream.
This is bad if you’re young and have big aspirations, and even worse if you’re approaching retirement age and realizing that you’re not financially ready for it.
Focus is one of the few things I know that virtually everyone needs, and needs BADLY.
One of the really nasty things about the situations I described above is that they tend to produce a lot of anxiety, which clouds your mind and keeps you from focusing on the things you need to get done to get through.
If your employer suddenly starts struggling, or a higher-up suddenly decides they don’t like you, it’s easy to freak out, which is terrible for two reasons.
The first is that it will be hard to perform well – meaning your odds of getting axed go up.
The second, and worst, it that it eats your energy and your ability to get yourself out of that situation – by prepping for interviews, learning new skills, applying to new jobs, etc.
What if you could be completely confident in your ability to focus and get everything done, no matter what?
What if you could pick up new skills with ease, so if someone tries to play workplace politics on you, you can just smile and walk out – secure in the knowledge that you can find other employment, likely with better pay and better coworkers?
Or better yet, start your own thing, so you don’t have to answer anyone.
This is all very achievable, very quickly, if you can FOCUS.
Today, I’m doing a limited release of a course that teaches you everything I know about RAPIDLY increasing your focus and productivity, as well as side-stepping the anxiety that often bubbles up in those situations when focus is most needed.
It is some effort, and you will need to take it seriously and implement what I tell you if you want the full benefit, but relative to all the extra work and frustration you suffer from as a result of distraction, the effort this course will require is NOTHING.
The course is only about 2 hours long in total – it would be even shorter, but I’m a Southerner who often talks slow and isn’t above the occasional rant or ramble – solely for your entertainment, of course.
There’s a good chance you’re skeptical, especially about that last point.
That’s one reason why I’m offering a generous, 30 day, no-questions-asked money-back policy. If you’re an action taker and make even the most basic effort to implement what I show you, I have ZERO worries that you will want your money back. ZERO.
So far NO ONE I’ve taught this to who actually sat down and did it once said it didn’t help.
So, there you have it.
Get focused with YOUX2 for a limited time – COURSE CLOSES again November 16th (12:00 midnight EST)!
The YouX2 Fall 2018 course offering is over!
Unfortunately, the cart is now closed. I’m working a brand new course that will take motivated folks through the ‘next steps’ to take their ‘focus’ to the next level and reap the incredible benefits that result. In the meantime, I’ll be sharing more focus tips with those who are interested in increasing their productivity… X2.
