Consistent Productivity at SS

In today's era of self-help books and online "gurus", words like Consistent Productivity are overloaded & hacked, meaning different things to different people.

What enables Consistency according to us?

For us, Consistency means two things - Optimal (not maximal) and Sustainable. Also, Optimizing doesn't HAVE to mean compromising. Sustainability matters as nothing worth achieving comes without investing significant time & effort.

What is Optimal and why does it matter?

Extreme efficiency needs to go hand in hand with making progress on getting our results effectively ( with least effort). And at the SAME time, we ought to balance our overall Well-being (mental, emotional, social, physical, & financial).

What's Sustainability in this context?

It's a product of harboring an attitude that is truly practical & at least "good enough" if not excellent to get us to our results at the same time. We believe that there's a synergy between Sustainability and nurturing Rationally Optimistic ambitions.

Scarcity was an Ancient Struggle

"The modern struggle is really about individuals—disconnected from their tribe, religion and cultural networks—who are trying to stand up to all these addictions that have been weaponized" - Naval

Modern Consistent Productivity is Rare

We MIGHT be able to leverage the opportunities in the 21st Century but we DEFINITELY need to face the associated struggles which for the first time are too big to tackle all alone & too dangerous to ignore

Fighting Weaponized Addiction

Addictions let us engage in "fake play" & "fake work". Lone individuals today need to summon inhuman willpower & stand against armies of scientists & statisticians

Procrastination & Momentum

80% of college students & 20% of the adults are Chronic Procrastinators. With so many options, Analysis Paralysis routinely plague many of us as we try to break out of our rut

Motivation & Discipline

The "Attention" economy incentivizes increasingly short attention spans & easy distractions are putting immense stress on our naturally evolved executive functions

Ignorance & Contamination

We work & compete in global contexts with brains built to live in small communities. There's Widespread Ignorance about our facts & truths. Fake News & Ads don't help

Reductionism & High Noise

Societies seek consensus: 'simple enough' ideas evolving at the rate of slowest parts. Straw Manning, Opinions disguised as facts & Pseudo Science are having a field day

Exponential Progress & Careers

Young people today live in a delusional, taunting world with wild ambitions. Automation & the need to reinvent our careers every decade are further stressors

What people say they like about our Sessions

Feedback from POWER Batch 1 & Productivity Workshops

The consistency, and the aid it's providing for a mind shift towards accepting that self improvement should be positively accepted and inculcated into my daily thoughts.

@Aakarsh Rastogi

It was perfect. Nothing to not like about it. The way the things have been planned and explained was awesome.

@Kashyapa Chandra

The fact that all the concepts and strategies were relatable which makes me feel I am into the right thing.

@Shalini Dinesh Kumar

The fact that on most days it gives me something to think about before going to bed. At least on some days, I like the rigour and the depth of the content.

@Vighnesh Hegde

Personally, this is helping me sift through efficiently (without wasting a lot of time/energy in getting lost beneath heaps of 'gyaan' out there) and reorganize basic knowledge while learning key first principles (which are easy to miss out otherwise).

@Abhishek Mehrotra

Lots of content and a birds-eye view on most topics. They look like tested out techniques.

@Clince Joshy

All slides are good. Covered very basic things which we usually ignore and it’s very vital in my point of view.

@Mayank Kumar

The presenter, presentation and immense work put in by the team for curating the content.

@Abhinav Jain

We are a group of humans with a shared goal
