Course Description

What is holding you back from learning faster?

Is it you?

Is it your technology?

Is it your overall learning system?

You've probably heard it before: “a bad craftsman blames his tools."

I wouldn't disagree.

But when is the last time you saw someone building a house with a hammer, a hand saw and some 2x4s?

No…

Now it's all about technology:

Air guns.

Buzz saws.

Power drills.

When you build a house, you need the right tools and materials to build a house.

When you build a skills, there are a different set of tools and materials.

The basic ingredients for learning are neurons and myelin.

Each time you fire a set of neurons while learning, they get wrapped in another thin layer of myelin, which is like insulation on an electric cord.

The more the neurons get wrapped up, the faster the neurons can send signals.

And that all means faster learning.

So what does that have to do with this course?

The other half of learning is the tools.

The tools you use to get the raw ingredients, which are the books, courses, Youtube videos, coding sites, forum threads, whatever….to turn into real skills that you have mastered.

That's where these accelerated learning machines come in.

Can you imagine what it was like before Page and Brin invented Google?

Before Gutenberg invented the printing press?

Before Berners-Lee invented the internet (with some help)?

It's like living in the stone ages.

The problem is, there isn't a big market right now for tools that help you learn faster.

Why?

Because there isn't demand for it yet.

And what that means for us is that it's hard to find technology that helps us learn faster beyond the basics of speed reading apps and flash card tools...the ones that have been around in one form or another for decades.

What you get in this course isn't just a list of tools for you to install on your computer or phone.

You get 50+ programs, apps and online services along with a bonus section on hardware that contain the top machines out there that the fastest learners in the world are using to speed up their learning curve.

Most people using these machines will use a few and get impressive gains. But the magic happens when you are using all of them as part of a larger learning system.

In each video you will learn why the software, app or service is the best in it's category and how to use it for it's stage in the learning system.

But, you might be thinking, what makes this different from the other lists or guides for learning out there?

Fair point.

Here's the thing. Most of the programs in here were never designed for accelerated learning. That was never the intention of the developer.

And that's what makes these so valuable.

Because you would never find out about them any other way except stumbling upon them while trying to do something else.

There's two ways of looking at learning faster.

1. Take something you already do and make it a little faster.

2. Do something you were never able to do before because of new technology.

It's the old story of Ford's Model T:

"If I'd asked people what they wanted, they would have asked for a faster horse" - Henry Ford

Right now, you may be thinking about the areas of your learning you could do faster…

But don't forget the other part...the part where you do something you could never dream of before because you have a new technology…

A New. Learning. Machine.

What are the requirements?

  • A computer (Most machines are cross platform, some windows only)
  • A smart phone (iPhone prefered, but most apps are on Android also)
  • Back up your computer or set a restore point before installing any new software

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Use software and apps that speed up learning
  • Create a simple learning system that covers every stage of skill acquisition
  • Convert all learning materials into the optimal format for accelerated learning

What is the target audience?

  • Professionals who want to level up their skills
  • Entrepreneurs who want an edge on their competition
  • Non-readers who prefer audio and video learning

What you get with this course?

Not for you? No problem.
