Course overview

Imagine your day without fighting against yourself, the clock, or all the chaos

"This was the most expansive and impactful course I've taken in years, and I've taken a lot of courses." -Kara Dennison, CEO, Optimized Career Solutions

"An incredible experience. It totally surpassed any expectations I had. The whole course is remarkably well structured: things start making more and more sense as the lessons progress and they build on top of the previous insights in a manner that, at least for me, felt very convincing. All my life I've been a very analytical person, relying on my brain power to understand and provide solutions in a logical manner. This course has opened a new door for me, has given me access to new sources of answers I did not even know existed." -Razvan Reff, Founder, White Box Technologies


1) Identify and release core conditioning and limiting beliefs that keep you stuck working in a high-friction, costly trade-off, and tension-filled manner (aka: the Degenerative Work Cycle).

2) Shift from an output orientation to an (inner) alignment orientation that enables you to leverage the huge levels of inspiration, motivation, creativity, and insight naturally baked into your body and mind.

3) Develop intuitive leadership skills to better navigate uncertainty, volatility, and complexity in the workplace. Such skills can also open the door to uncovering latent super-abilities and fostering quantum leaps in how work gets done.


Every step you take today literally influences and shifts the levels of life around you (the physical, mental/emotional, life force, and energetics). The ripple effects of this are profound, creating either degenerative or regenerative dynamics that influence the challenges that unfold each day, the impact we have, and ultimately our whole experience of work and life.

This course is for you if...


You’re a senior leader or entrepreneur who always has to be available or always has too much to get done


You’ve tried to get more done quicker, manage your time better, and even become grittier, yet still have to grind to get through your day


You "get" flow and wellbeing, but it doesn't seem to jive with your day-to-day realities of work


You feel frustrated or confused because despite being smart, accomplished, and willing to do whatever it takes, you can't crack this nut


You’ve tried all sorts of approaches that only moved the needle in the short-term and you're ready for sustainable change


You've had enough with grinding to try to get to the point of no longer having to grind!

        After years of focusing on being hyper-productive, trying to balance being a parent, husband and exec I was burned out. By shining a light on some of my core assumptions, I learned how much of my work day & success centered around grinding to avoid certain fears. The tools/practices David uses are refreshing, highly effective, and life changing.

        David’s approach is groundbreaking. His deep empathy and analytical style allow him to understand others’ struggles and tap into universal truths and patterns that are challenging to notice because they contradict so much of what we’re taught in today’s culture. Integrating what I learned has made a tremendous difference in every area of life.

Course Syllabus


Regain Control

We’ll start by getting clear on the full extent and impact of grinding in your life. Learn why grinding is about alignment and not outputs or outcomes. Discover a powerful mind-body practice that taps into your inner wisdom to define your optimal state and a personalized new map you can use during the course to begin untangling from the grind.


Let Go of Burdening Beliefs and Toxic Conditioning

We'll identify your toxic conditionings, limiting beliefs, and Core Conditioned Mindset that keep you stuck in grind mode. You'll learn a powerful technique that integrates the body and NLP to release your most burdensome limiting belief. We'll then re-engineer a recent work challenge to see how effective you can be without the grind.


Develop a Daily Core Stability Practice

We'll learn about several critical topics and tools, including my M.A.G.I.C framework, for engaging expansion, alignment, ease, and inner flow on-demand. We'll also look at discerning key thresholds such as: urgency versus eagerness, straining versus flowing, attachment versus discipline, and being powerful versus forceful.


Stay Out of the Grind

We’ll explore the 4 levels of life involved in maximizing regenerative work long-term: life force, physical, mental/emotional, & quantum. We'll discuss how to cross the 2% Rapid Transformation Threshold and the 2 critical elements the brain needs to embrace long-term change. We'll develop personalized strategies for passing through the limbo state.
