Do you make a to-do list but then don't know how to approach it? Do you spend your time browsing social media feeds and watching cat videos, and end up with unfulfilled deadlines?

It's like a vicious circle. But you can get out of it!
Why do we know how to work properly, but in practice we do things the way we used to?

We make a to-do list, but we don't know how to approach it. We waste time on social networks and cat videos, and then find ourselves overwhelmed with deadlines...

It's indeed a vicious circle.

Stop fighting with yourself and your laziness
You will learn more about our mindset and begin to plan your day in a way that will help you get things done. No pressure.

Have more time for personal life
You will stop wasting energy on useless things and learn to fully restore your resources, so that you will have more time and energy for friends, family, hobbies, etc.
Stop being overwhelmed with deadlines!
Find your combination of Jedi techniques. This will be your unique method of personal productivity!
Pay what you want to participate!
Participants have been paying what they want for HYLS courses since 2018.
80,000 participants have supported our payment format.
Why do we let you set your own price?
We don't build a long sales funnel that one or a few percent of the wealthiest people reach the end of. We don't hold a series of free webinars, at the end of which we sell expensive courses.

Not everyone can decide to spend a quarter or even half their salary on a course, even if it's worth it. We give everyone the opportunity to get better, regardless of income.

That's why since the start in 2018, HYLS participants set the price for a course themselves. We haven't seen anyone using this system on a mass scale before us.
What's the catch? Can I trust HYLS?
You can search for reviews about HYLS on Internet.

You can ask questions from media people and projects with whom HYLS cooperates: Maxim Dorofeev (the author of books "Jedi Techniques" and "The Way of the Jedi"), Arseniy Kim (the author with Youtube channel Neofit - 400k subscribers) and Meditation Lessons project (Youtube channel - 500k subscribers).

You can explore our social media accounts: Instagram (50k), Youtube (60k), and Facebook.

HYLS does not have access to your bank card data.
How to set a price?
Let your price be not an excuse to quit but an incentive to finish the whole course, have fun in the process, and become a better person!

1. If you are experiencing financial difficulties - pay up to 30 USD or ask for free participation.

2. If you think you have an average income (whatever that means to you) - you can allocate 5% of your monthly earnings - this will be a good motivation.

3. If you think you earn more than average, be generous and become a sponsor. Thanks to you, thousands of other participants will benefit from HYLS. Our project is viable because of your support. The most generous contribution was 500 USD.
"Pay what you want" model is an opportunity to motivate yourself consciously. You pay an amount not by force but with the intention to get the results.

There are altruists among participants. For them, HYLS is an opportunity to be generous and contribute to the society.
How does the course work?
Duration - 60 days
It is enough to accumulate real experience with Jedi techniques and find your recipe for productivity. You can complete the course faster if you are willing to practice a little more often.
15-30 minutes of practice every day

Support from like-minded people
Communicate with fellow participants in the comments section under the materials and unite in groups to take the course together.

First, it really worked! Second, it was good presentation of the material (I've read other books on gtd/productivity, etc.)

Sometimes you just read author's train of thought, while in this course everything is structured, logical, clear, useful, consistent - super! :)
Michael

I liked the techniques associated with the smartphone and the method of starting to complete tasks with some small detail that we can easily accomplish.

I practically stopped using a smartphone, freed up time for other things, got a feeling of ease because I detached myself from the smartphone.

1. Interactivity. It was easy for me to get used to the techniques and implement them on a daily basis.

2. Sincerity. I don't know the author personally, but I logically checked his conclusions and now agree with most of them.

3. Nice and memorable design. The whole image of the course is very memorable. It has a unique and unified picture.
Arthur
Project Manager
A lot of practice, most of it works well for me. I also liked "pay what you want" model.

The illustrations with the monkey are great, which is good for remembering situations. More illusrations can be added.
John
English Teacher
The course allowed me to look at the familiar idea of "time-compass" planning from a new angle and to rethink many ideas.

The green tasks gave me more time to play the piano and read. The "monkey" has radically changed the way I think about tasks, which are now a piece of cake.

Thank you!
Margo

The material was very helpful, especially the topic about dividing into tasks, projects and ideas is a revelation to me.

"Pay what you want" model - that's a cool idea you came up with.

In general, I liked how technically organized it was: from properly allocated materials for each day (5-15 minutes, just like for a monkey!), convenient and thoughtful navigation, helpful checklists, and many insights.

Particularly helpful insights are the following:

(1) Vaccines - turning off notifications on my smartphone and email. Before taking the course, I had already felt like I was burning out. By turning off notifications, I breathed easier, exhaled, and am now breathing deeper and calmer;

(2) The philosophical-buddhist-practical and unconventional approach proved to be a fresh breath of air. I was expecting a formalized presentation, rigid time-management rules, and was pleasantly surprised by the flexibility and reasonableness of the approach. For example, it was worth to look at the difference between planning based on the concept of thought-fuel and time-centered approach;

(3) The importance of working with green tasks;

(4) Relaxation technique - thank you very much for it, now I relax daily, and I like it very much;

(5) Well, and, of course, the formulation of tasks as a monkey - a cool thing! I've been doing lots of things using this approach.
Jane

I liked the content of the course itself.

I got several insights in the process, for example, that it is okay not to have goals - and it's normal that I have a strong dependence on my smartphone, etc.

I really liked the methodology of working with email: I set up an inbox and now when I read an email I immediately digest it - reply, delete it, write down the task, etc. As a result, I read each email only once.

I noticed that I save fuel for thought. I also intuitively try to communicate asynchronously for a long time. Now I do it consciously, and I set the sound to "no sound" for all notifications, which is very convenient.

I have noticed that the level of anxiety has begun to decrease. Plus there is an indulgence: if a person is really urgent - he will call me, and if he hysterically texts in messenger, then that's his problem, not mine.

I read the author's books, but the practice, as usual, turned out to be more effective. Not all of the exercises were appropriate for me, some were not applicable to my reality, but they were definitely useful.

I liked the unobtrusive nature of the material, the author's positioning not as some kind of all-knowing guru, but simply as an conversationist, advisor, helper, fellow traveler.

As a result, I systematized a lot of things in my head, put them in the right places, found accurate definitions of many subconsciously felt concepts (asynchronous communication, procrastination, relaxing techniques, green and red tasks, deliberate completion of tasks).

We'll look further into this.

      FAQ:
      Is it gonna be another time-management course?
      No!
      No time-management theories!

      Most people know to prioritize correctly, not to be distracted by trivia, to concentrate on important tasks, to "eat the elephant" in parts and frogs in the morning...

      But all of these recommendations often do not work. So there you go again, you keep ignoring the basic rules of time management, and you are not putting them into practice.

      It's all about your inner monkey. In the course, we will explain why this is happening and what to do about it. You will learn effective methods for "taming" your inner monkey. All recommendations are based on current views of psychology and physiology of the human brain.

      These Jedi techniques will save you from overwork, burnout, overdue deadlines and procrastination.
      What's the uniqueness of the course?
      The course offers minimal theory: only the most important one. The main part consists of practice according to the methods of one of the leading consultants on increasing productivity.

      All the techniques and tips from Maxim Dorofeev's two bestselling books are collected in one course and you can pay what you want for it. In the course, you will find techniques and highly practical recommendations, through which you will:

      • understand the causes of your procrastination and learn how to deal with it;
      • learn how to properly formulate tasks, so they are done quickly and easily, and are not put off for later;
      • learn how to configure your browser and cell phone to get the most out of them, and not to waste time on social networks while you work;
      • learn how to stop piling up hundreds of unread messages in your inbox;
      • say goodbye to deadlines, overdue deadlines, and overwork to your detriment.

      A personal diary will help you develop new habits for personal efficiency. It is available in a mobile app!
      I don't understand how much the course costs.
      Pay whatever you want for the course. You can pay any amount you are comfortable with and get full access to the course materials.

      But in order to learn something and get results, you need to feel the value of the product. Accessibility is relaxing, which causes you to lose motivation and results to decrease.

      How many times have you bought a cheap product/service or at a discount and ended up forgetting and not using it? If something is easy, forgetting about it will not be a problem.

      When determining the level of payment for this course, think of your needs and abilities. The higher the price, the steeper the result. The amount you choose should motivate you to move forward, get benefit out from the course, and realize the value of your purchase. This will help you get through the course to the end and make the most of it.

      Only you determine the value of life changes you want to get.
