  • Willingness to "step it up" and work to become a better, more productive and more successful version of yourself

In this course you'll learn the exact, step-by-step, time-tested framework I used to launch two startups, work for Denmark's biggest companies, self-fund studies to the world's top schools, write a book and travel to almost 100 different countries.

I've a successful, fun and exciting career and lifestyle, and in this course I want to tell you exactly how you can have one as well.

Five years ago, I was a broke, bored and unemployed graduate in South America.

I dreamed of working in Google or another big company, of traveling to London and Europe, and of having VIPs from all types in my network.

I was ambitious - I was trying the latest productivity tips, the latest "life hacks" and more, but I couldn't just "take off".

While my old classmates started landing serious jobs, applying for Ivy League MBAs and traveling the world, I couldn't get it right and started to freak out.

One cold, dark winter day I hit rock bottom. After quitting my first job after only three days, I promised myself and everyone I knew, that I would rise up.

Fast forward a few years, and I've:

  • Launched two businesses, one reaching 2.3m people
  • Moved to Denmark, and worked for Maersk and Carlsberg, two of the world's biggest companies
  • Self-funded a Masters Degree in Copenhagen and spent 8 weeks in Harvard
  • Wrote a book and traveled to over 90 different countries

I've finally cracked it.

After years of reading all sorts of books, going to dozens of conferences, meeting hundreds of experts and experimenting with innumerable techniques and strategies, I've come up with a winning formula.

Today I want to share it with you.

Who is the target audience?
  • You're preparing to launch or grow a startup or your own business
  • You're aiming to get a big promotion at your current job
  • You want to expand dramatically the reach of your art or craft
  • Whatever you're doing, you're trying to up your game. You're interested in becoming truly successful.

Identifying Your Priorities

A short introduction to this section, plus a few words on where this section stands in the 'big picture' of the course.


In our daily work, there's so much to do that it's hard to do everything and have time for yourself as well. There's just so much you can do in the office hours. Here I list a few of the most common to-dos

There's So Much Going On

To be more productive, it helps to make a key distinction - efficiency vs effectiveness. Do you know the difference?

Preview 03:07

To make the effective vs. efficient difference clear, I'll present you this matrix and give you four examples

Preview 04:00

In this exercise, you'll identify all your current and future tasks and you'll link them towards your objectives. An important exercise that sets the tone for the course

Exercise: Identifying Your Priorities

In this exercise, you'll separate what really matters from what doesn’t. For that, you'll split your task list into three big groups

Exercise: Identifying The Highest Value Tasks

It’s hard to fit it all in your head - the task lists, priorities, deadlines and ever-changing projects. It helps, big time, to delegate that to a Task Management System.

Using Task Management Systems

A simple, five minutes routine that all high performers do - almost without exceptions.

Creating Powerful Habits

A short introduction to this section, plus a few words on where this section stands in the 'big picture' of the course.


A to-do list doesn’t complete itself. You need massive action. This is obvious, but it’s where most people fail. They get this beautiful lists but then don’t act on them. To succeed, you need to act.

You Need Massive Action to Succeed

Habits are at the center of this course and are the cornerstone of high performance. In this video I explain what are habits and why they matter.

What Are Habits, Why They Matter

There are two main points to consider when creating a new habit. In this video I explain which they are and how you can make them work.

Preview 03:38

It takes roughly just thirty days to install a new routine or habit. After the thirty-day mark, things will start to happen "automatically." That's where the magic is.

30 Day Trials

This is the most important lesson of the course. What separates the top performers from all others is that they create habits and routines specifically tailored to their objectives. This helps them succeed inevitably over the long-term.

How to Transform Goals into Habits

In this exercise you'll transform your own personal goals and objectives into habits.

Exercise: Transforming Your Goals into Routines

Four important points that will help you transform the ideas you wrote down in the last exercise into habits that stick.

The Habit Toolbox

A super simple way to dramatically increase your physical energy. So important and so easy that it's ridiculous NOT to do it.

Second Routine: The First Thing I Do Immediately After Waking Up

A sure-proof way to increase your mental performance and boost your emotional health. Another "too good not to do" routine.

In our modern, high-tech world people are not working better and smarter – on the contrary, people have completely lost control of their day.

Preview 03:45

Time is fixed. You'll never get more than twenty-four hours per day. Nobody does. But energy, on the other hand, is not fixed. You'll normally get swings and changes in your energy level, and, depending on how high or how low you go, your productivity will be positively or negatively impacted.

Preview 04:26

To make the most of your energy, you need to know at what time you're most productive and what type of activities you should do depending on what part of the day it is
