Why I didn't raise money for Selfmastered
I made my debut in the VC world in 2015. So far I've had the chance to review hundreds of business plans, talk to dozens of entrepreneurs and invest in 40 startups (as a VC or a BA). Even if I could have had easy access to smart money, I decided to avoid it. Here's why: Link for FREE course:

This is Why You Don't Get Sales (or Get Laid)
The same psychological principle that prevents an entrepreneur from getting laid also prevents him from making sales: a lack of confidence in his abilities. Lacking sales (and sex) is a belief problem, not an execution (most people know how to sell - and get laid - when they honestly, intimately, believe in what they are selling. Learn how to fix the problem at the core with us.

Don't ask for feedback - Do this instead
If you want actionable information that helps you improve, never ask for feedback. Research proves that people received more effective input from third parties when they asked for advice rather than feedback. Research even found that feedback often has no (or even a negative) impact on our performance. In this video, I discuss why you should collect feedback from your tools (like a personal Dashboard), but ask for advice from other people instead.

3 Mistakes why you're on the Slow Path to Success

How to DOUBLE Your BUSINESS While Working Less
It is very much possible to double your business while working less. Due to the universal fact that only things tend towards disorder, it is inevitable that after just a few short months in business you are wasting time and energy on things that don't matter. By eliminating those wastes of time and doubling down on the unique leverage points of your business, you can double your business in less than 3 months. We've done that time and time again at Selfmastered, after all.

Why TO-DO Lists Don't Work (5 reasons & 1 solution)
In this video, I discuss five reasons why TO-DO Lists don't work anymore, and I provide an alternative solution. I argue that if we genuinely want to be effective when keeping track of our daily obligations, we need to substitute TO-DO Lists with a more sophisticated tool that can provide clarity on the road ahead and nudge us into peak performance every day.

How to Recover From Burnout While Still Working (4 strategies)
In this video, I share four proven strategies to de-load, de-stress and recover from burnout while still working full-time. Since modern knowledge workers are subject to huge amounts of stress (that can quickly develop into burnout when mismanaged), learning how to de-stress every day is paramount to achieve and sustain peak performance in the long run.

5 Steps to Good Decision Making (Advanced personal protocol)
One of the key differences between low and top performers is the quality of their decision-making. In this video, I discuss 5 steps to good decision-making that have served me well in life & business throughout the years. You can't miss out on this advanced thinking protocol, especially if you are in the business of making irreversible decisions often.

Why the Antifragile Mindset is the Best Mindset for Success
The best mindset to cultivate isn't a "growth mindset", in Carol Dweck's terminology, but an "Antifragile" mindset. This mindset will allow you to use all circumstances to your advantage and rapidly evolve into a laser-focused top-performing entrepreneur that thrives under the same pressure that makes others crumble. In this video, I discuss why improving the mechanics of our mind should follow the same rules that we apply to all systems of our lives: going from Fragility to Robustness to Antifragility.

Don't Become 1% Better Every Day
Mainstream advice suggests that radical transformation is inevitable in the long run if we become  1% better every day. In this video, I explain why this idea, albeit interesting, doesn't apply to knowledge workers. I'll also leverage Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's research on flow to discuss the optimal target you should aim for every day if you want to truly transform the way you live and work.

Why Time Management Doesn't Work (And What To Do About It)
One of the best-kept secrets within the productivity industry is that time management doesn't work. Especially in our hectic, distraction-fueled digital age. The best strategy to maximize your impact while working less is to manage your schedule based on your own biorhythms and the true nature of your work. Time management, in the grand scheme of things, is a useless skill to cultivate.

Does the Pomodoro Technique Actually Work?
One of the most frequently asked questions in the productivity space is "Does the Pomodoro Technique actually work?". The answer is no. In fact, it is counterproductive if you want to harness the full potential of your mind. In this video we uncover why most of the mainstream productivity advice is misguided or wrong, and what is the best way of *actually* getting real results on attention spent.

Why EMOTIONS Follow MECHANICS (and what to do about it)
Since human emotions follow mechanics, we can architect our cognition and environment to keep raw irrational emotions under control. This is one of the core competencies of top performers, especially in the higher echelons of business. Unless you master your emotions, you'll never learn to achieve & sustain peak performance - for real and forever. This video is all about how to manage your emotions, how to architect your cognition and environment, how to keep low emotional variance, why emotional management is more important than IQ, what is "emotional nirvana", how to be content in the present and confident in the future.

How to THINK Like a Top Performer
The ability to think like a top performer isn't something you are born with, but rather something you develop over time. You can, without the shadow of a doubt, upgrade your performance and thus accelerate your career if you upgrade the "mental environment" in which your thoughts happen.

The SECRET to High-Impact WORK

In this video, I provide a simple framework you can use to audit any task you are normally involved with to make sure it fits the definition of "high-impact work", and thus start gaining momentum at an accelerated pace. This is crucial to learn because high-impact work is one of the core competencies of top performers.

Learning how to leverage your beliefs (and resolve cognitive dissonances in your favor) is a crucial habit of mind that all successful entrepreneurs have. In fact, there's little you can achieve in life or business if you don't understand and apply your ability to transform the Territory you operate in based on the Map you harbor in your mind.

STOP trying to become more PRODUCTIVE - do this instead
Stop trying to become more productive because it will never work in the long term. Until you acknowledge that, as a human being, you are a complex system that is dependent on a diversity of factors to be consistently productive, you won't transform your productivity for good. No Notion dashboard, new mental model or productivity hack can deny that only a systematic approach towards personal performance optimization can guarantee sustained optimal results in the long term (and skyrocket your productivity, as a by-product).
