32,600 Students Later, Become A Speed Demon Has Been Updated From The Ground Up!

This course will teach you the most cutting-edge tips and tricks for productivity, automation, and efficiency, so that you can do more work in less time and have more time for the things that matter in life.

Contrary to popular belief, productivity isn’t always about doing things faster.

If you...

  1. Don’t have enough time

  2. Have tried becoming "more productive" without much success

... chances are you’re actually working too much.

How could that be?

It’s simple.

As a student or professional looking to get the most out of your time, you know that there is a HUGE difference between:

  • Doing deep work on high-level tasks that help you accomplish your goals

  • Sitting at your desk for 8+ hours hopping from task to task... getting nowhere


If you’re putting in the hours and not seeing proportional, or rather exponential results, you don’t have a productivity problem.

You have an “attention management” problem.

But what is “attention management”?

And, more importantly, how can you make it work for you rather than against you?

I’m glad you asked!

Become a Speed Demon 2.0 will answer that exact question.

The sad truth is that most of us simply don't have enough time in our daily lives to get through everything we need to do. Much less the things we want to do.

In this course from best-selling instructor Jonathan Levi, author of the blockbuster course "Become a SuperLearner," you will learn how to reclaim enough time to do just that - and so much more.

For the last 10 years, your instructor Jonathan Levi has developed a series of techniques, tips, tricks, and strategies to overcome a near superhuman workload.

From juggling a multimillion dollar business while engaged as a full time student, to running multiple companies at the same time, to leading a jam-packed travel, social, and educational calendar that would make some people's heads spin.

How Is This Possible, And How Can You, Too, Learn To Become A Speed Demon?

The course starts out with a great foundation in theory, training you on the philosophies behind efficiency, productivity, and "speeding up."

Armed with these theories and strategies, the course then dives into more nuts-and-bolts recommendations on how to speed up some of the most time-intensive activities we each do every day:

  • Working at the computer

  • Cooking and fitness

  • Interactions with others

  • Other general inefficiencies

The course takes a holistic approach to productivity and efficiency, arming you with the mindset to kick butt and speed up every aspect of your productive and creative life, in order to make time for the things that really matter.

So if you...

  • Could use an extra 1-3 hours in your day

  • Currently spend the LITTLE free time you have worrying about the endless pile of work waiting on your desk

  • Would like more time to spend with friends and family

... this course is for you.
