Let Me Tell You a Secret About "Productivity Tips"

Are you following advice that has failure built in?

Everybody wants to know the latest productivity tips, hacks, shortcuts, tools and secrets.

And you know what?

Tips, tricks, hacks and shortcuts are massively overrated.

I bet you've tried countless of them yourself. You've read the articles, you've tried another new to-do list or productivity app. And it didn't make you more productive. And that's par for the course - these things meant to be distracting "bright shiny objects", to begin with.

Increasing your productivity, your effectiveness, your ability to achieve goals - it's not about what you do. It's about what kind of person you become.

If you want to succeed in business and in life, it's not about learning the hottest tips or using the shiniest apps. It's about becoming a focused, highly productive, highly effective kind of person.

focus & action is not a collection of tips.
It's a system that turns you into a highly effective person.

And I've got good news: you don't have to be gifted or especially talented to become a highly effective person.

I sure wasn't.

I've built 7-figure businesses, I've bootstrapped my way to running a team of 70 people and I tend to get a lot of stuff done. But it wasn't always like that.

In fact, I was pretty much the opposite. I'm the kind of guy who would have been voted "least likely to succeed" by my peers - and I can't even be mad at them for it.

I've become a successful entrepreneur despite the obstacles. And I've done so in a deliberate, highly systematic way. That means I have a teachable, repeatable system. A system that has worked for me, has worked for people I've taught it to and will work for you, too.

Why focus & action is Different from Other Productivity Systems

Productivity advice ages fast, these days...

Ever feel like you've gotten worse or lazier, in the last years? Notice that your attention span is shorter than ever? Maybe you now default to 2x speed on every video you watch and every podcast you listen to and you still skip past many parts?

It's not your fault.

It's not that you've gotten lazier, it's that the distraction systems around you have gotten better and more sophisticated.

What do I mean by "distraction systems"?

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime. Not to mention the phone in your pocket and all the apps on it.

There's a war for our attention. Some of the largest companies online all specialize in getting and then keeping your attention, by delivering rapid-fire, easy-to-consume content. Content that is algorithmically tailored to push your buttons.

We live in a world that's very different from the one we were used to 10 or even 5 years ago. Teams of data scientists use billions of data points, gathered from all our connected devices, to learn exactly what it takes to get us hooked.

If you think you're not affected by this, then they've definitely got their hooks in. So deep, you don't even remember what it was like not to be addicted and distracted.

Productivity system that are based on manageable input and finite to-do lists are hopelessly outdated.

focus & action is made for this new world. For the crazy digital environment we now all live in.

It's a system that recognizes the fact that we are all perpetually distracted and that more apps and tools aren't the solution. And it's a system that is made to work in an environment of infinite input and perpetual overwhelm.

You can't conquer this wave. But you can learn how to surf it.

“The course showed me how much of my time was being frittered away on constant checking of email and social media. ‘Freedom Time’ has been a revelation!

Shane’s is a calm voice of reason in the overhyped, jargon-heavy world of online business. His advice is always based on sound evidence and experience.

Thank you for a really well-crafted course.”

Victoria Hopkins, Business Owner

“In recent months I found myself getting more stressed and less productive.

Shane's focus & action course really helped me re-calibrate my brain with specific, actionable steps and offered fresh, new perspectives on the topic of personal productivity. It wasn't the same old rehashed time management info that we've all heard 1,000 times before.

Mark Brinker

“This course has helped me focus on meaningful, impactful work that is driving my business forward while making me feel generally more satisfied with my progress and personal development. I've noticed a vast improvement in productivity since starting the course.

Shane has a very clear way of explaining important matters in his videos. The course is divided into chapters that come with certain action steps and tasks. If you implement them right away, it's a foolproof system that you can then adjust to your personal requirements.

Shane truly over-delivered, which is not all too common these days with online courses. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to grow!

The Solutions to Your Productivity Problems

How many of these are getting in the way of reaching your goals?

"Bright Shiny Object" Syndrome

You want to work towards your goals, but you keep getting distracted by bright shiny objects. A new tool, that promises to solve your problems. An online course that promises to teach an even better way to build your business. A new opportunity that may be even better than the one (or five) you're already working on...

focus & action gives you a simple system for dealing with these distractions and keeping yourself on course, towards your goals.

Too Many Priorities

Everybody tells you that you need to prioritize and spend time working on your most important tasks. But how can you tell which tasks are the most important ones? Every day brings new emergencies and too many things seem important all at once.

focus & action teaches you how to gain absolute clarity and how to say "no" to the right things.

FOMO - the Fear of Missing Out

You set out to be productive and focus on your work, but before you know it, you're back to scrolling through your Insta feed, checking your FB messages or chatting with friends. Even when you sit down to work, you compulsively reach for your phone.

In focus & action, you'll discover how you can calm the FOMO and get into distraction-free work mode. No willpower required.

Being Busy Without Making Progress

It's not that you aren't working. You're sitting in front of your computer, looking at work related apps for most of the day. Maybe for more than 8 hours a day, even. You can be busy all day long, but at the end of the day, it's clear that you haven't made any real progress towards your goals.

The focus & action system helps you confine your busywork to a small portion of the day. You can still keep up with it, but at the end of each day, you'll have made clear, tangible steps towards your goals.

The Vicious Cycle of Disappointment

When you set goals for yourself and fail to reach them, it feels bad. Self help gurus tell you to shoot for the stars, to do your goal setting, to write in your bullet journal. But if you continuously fall short of your ambitions, your confidence keeps going down and your motivation to try again is sapped more and more.

In focus & action, you'll learn how to do goal setting the right way and how to build up confidence in your ability to reach your goals. And you'll see why most advice on goal setting is dead wrong.

Feeling Overwhelmed

As an entrepreneur, you face challenging work. You have to figure out what needs to get done and overcome the problems on the way. It's easy to feel totally overwhelmed. Too much information, too many tasks, too little time.

In focus & action, you'll learn how to stay calm in the chaos and how to make consistent progress, even when things get shaky.

All of these problems suck. And that makes it extra sweet when you conquer them, one by one.

Are You Ready to Become a Highly Productive Badass?

Let's make it happen. You've got a bunch of productivity problems that I'm itching to help you solve. You've got goals for 2019, that I want to help you reach.

Instead of just making New Year's resolutions that will be forgotten and abandoned before the end of January, join me in the focus & action course and make 2019 your best year yet!

What Customers Are Saying About the Course

“I went from being an uncoordinated, procrastinating mess to actually working on my most important tasks daily. I cut 80% of my busy work and started focusing on what actually drives my business forward. I accomplish a week's worth of work in my morning hours now which already(!) affects my income.

The course is very clear, streamlined and high quality.

A must-see for every entrepreneur.

Tim Gelhausen

The focus & action course is unlike any other productivity course out there, and I've taken A LOT of courses.

I've even implemented some of the steps from other courses but the big difference in focus & action is that Shane sets the stage with the mindset and habits you need to establish before just diving into the "hacks" and tips to be more productive. He truly knows that productivity requires discipline and shares his wisdom on how to be more disciplined.

By implementing only ONE single tactic from the course I've already seen a significant improvement in my productivity. I'm able to focus for longer periods and I am less of a slave to all the notifications and interruptions that used to cripple my productivity. I'm now working to instill the same habits and processes with my team.

I love Shane's style. He's so direct and genuine at the same time. He shares the key information and the occasional story to help the information sink in.

Amanda S., COO at Bold Worldwide

“The course is a path that accompanies you to become aware of how the usual mode of work, full of distractions, is highly unproductive.

Shane is able to convey the principles and systems in a clear and concise way. I have always seen Shane as the good guy who dispenses good and useful advice, in line with my way of thinking and seeing the world. Doing this course together with him has been like immersing me for a month in his world and better understanding his philosophy of life and entrepreneurship, far from the thundering proclamations of many business gurus, and much closer to the reality of things.

This is not a course for digital entrepreneurs only, but it is a lifestyle course. Its preciousness lies in this.

Agostino Famlonga

I’m so much more productive — and after just a few weeks of practice!

I now know what my top priority is so I’m not stalled by indecision and self-doubt. Most everything is easy to implement, and concepts are always followed by specific actions to take right away.

Shane’s teaching style is very personal. I always felt he was like a friend & mentor, throughout the entire course.

The most beneficial lesson of this entire course was learning that I am NOT a failure! Shane’s deep research into this course (and the resources he shares) demonstrated that my own productivity obstacles were extremely common, especially among entrepreneurs.

I have my confidence & self-esteem back!

Karen McCamy, Solopreneur

“The course really helped me to understand the mechanisms that caused my lack of productivity. This way I am able to change my environment and to work more productively. Also the Trello boards help me to focus and to make deliberate decisions about priorities.

Changing a few of my habits and routines really changed my productivity for the better.

I very much like Shane's style of teaching. The quality of the material is excellent and what I like most is that it is based on his own practice and experiments. This e-course has had more impact on my productivity than five days spent on a dedicated productivity course the last year.

This course is a no-brainer for anyone who wants to become more productive. Learn what you have to change and how to do it!
