We all have this inherent capacity to focus … but at the same time, attention is a limited resource. Not only should we be aware of this, but treat it as such:
something most valuable.

In this course we will be looking at our capacity to Focus from a whole variety of angles. From brain systems and neurochemicals, over the impact of survival instincts and emotions, to the different types of distractions we’re facing. There will be a whole pallet of advice and insights, as well as tips, tricks and strategies presented to help you gain substantial improvement in your capacity to focus.

And I’m not even speaking about the many experiments, and mind-twisting tests included in this course, which you will be subject to. I won’t be talking about focus. You will be experimenting it for yourself. 

What you’ll find in the course:

This little gem, just as with all my other courses, has been thoroughly researched to bring you the best in brain insights. In this course, among others, there will be a particular emphasis on the dual brain theory (backed by D. Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner and one of world’s leading psychologists).

The tests and experiments have been designed by leading experts in the field of psychology. So you don’t have to worry about lasting damage done to your brain or mind 😉

After this course, you will be able to focus as never before. On top of the research and studies, I will be sharing my own experience, insights and strategies that have helped me significantly improve my own productivity and quality.
