If you are a modern-day professional who is almost (but not quite) satisfied with your productivity, then I have exciting news for you...
Right now is your chance to make leaps in your business and personal excellence FASTER than ever before possible.
If you've read any type of success literature, you've probably come across the phrase "Mastermind" or "Mastermind Group".
A mastermind is a group of individuals, all "top dogs" in their respective fields, who come together to help push each other forward.
In a mastermind meeting, each person offers their best ideas, as well as support and accountability to other members. No matter what field or industry they're in, everyone offers a valuable perspective (and you KNOW their opinions count).
At Asian Efficiency, we recommend using the principle of a "mastermind" for ANY skill or discipline that matters to you.
"If you want to get good at public speaking... you join a Toastmasters group."
"If you want to get good at jiu-jitsu... you join a jiu-jitsu club."
The idea of a mastermind is simple. It is effective. And if you're reading this now, you probably already know the value of collaborating with like-minded individuals.
But there's still one HUGE problem, which is...
"If you want to get good at productivity... you join ...???"
Never before has existed a specialized destination for increasing your productivity. Yet, the need for such a thing has never been higher (especially with such high demands as we have today). And the more you get serious about productivity in a modern internet age, the more you realize how alone you are.
If you work in the average office environment, chances are good the majority of people you work with are NOT productive. And because of that, you are "stranded on an island" (with everyone around you drowning in inefficiency).
If you've been reading productivity books (or materials like the Asian Efficiency blog) for a while, then you are likely ABOVE AVERAGE in terms of how productive you are -- at least, compared to your colleagues.
As such, you probably don't have a great network of peers who are on the same level or can help push you forward...
With that being said, I found myself in a similar situation.
See, when my business partner and I first started Asian Efficiency, we had the goal of becoming the most productive version of ourselves possible. But in the beginning, we only knew a few people who could relate.
After a few years of growth, our audience of this site is way bigger than the small "productivity circle" of friends I had initially. And so, I had an idea.
I asked myself –
"What if there was an online mastermind group specifically for productivity, that had the benefits of a private inner circle, but was also accessible?"
And with that question in mind, we created the AE Dojo.
The term Dojo, in its literal meaning, translates to "Place of the way"...
An adjunct to the temple...
A sacred training ground for the elite of the elite.
In martial arts, the dojo consists of two roles:
If you're a student, everyone around you is either a fellow student (all at varying stages of the game), or an instructor. Each role offers value in a different way - the instructor offers the most wisdom, while the student is more accessible and relatable.
But in practice, both roles are required to make up a dojo.
In the AE Dojo, not only will you have top notch instruction, but you'll also get to learn from the people who are on the journey with you.
Similarly, in the digital world —
It's not just about information...
It's not just about network...
You really need...
At Asian Efficiency, we noticed most websites today provide content, but only a few provide network.
In the productivity space, most of the learning opportunities available to you are simply content.
But any time you're trying to learn a trade or skillset, if you can get both information + network (aka instructors + peers) -- that is invaluable.
So for generations, the dojo has been made up of these two same components. And whether it's you're talking digital or physical, the fact remains the same:
If you are not getting both pieces of the puzzle -- then you, my friend, are NOT in a dojo.
At the AE Dojo, we provide both:
A) High-level advanced learning materials kept hidden from public eyes, but we also provide you convenience - exactly when you want it or need it most, it's going to be there at that time.
B) Other students, who you can simultaneously teach to and learn from. These are your peers, who you can connect with and reach out to -- and we figured out how to structure a virtual environment for this to happen like you've never had available before.
Just like the martial arts dojo or gym - when you want to workout, you want to already have a go-to destination for that.
Likewise, when you want to work out your productivity or growth challenges (or even life problems), you just want to go somewhere and work it out.
We've designed the AE Dojo to be the best place to do that. (It's like a martial arts Dojo, but for your mind...)
The AE Dojo deals mainly with helping you:
First, the content --
You'll be getting online training from productivity experts who want to dive deeper into the ideas we teach in our blog posts and course. The information is custom-tailored for people who want to go to the next level in their personal and professional lives
What got you to Point A won't necessarily get you to Point B. If you've gotten by with mediocre productivity and organization skills, then don't be surprised if you're stuck in a plateau.
Fortunately, we have a panel of experts in the Dojo who have personally tried and curated the very best tips, tools, and tricks to help you go the next level in productivity For us, the human curation aspect is important - there are 1,000,000 "life hacks" out there, but we bring you the premium stuff that's the best fit for you and will provide immediate results.
"True wisdom is knowing what you don't know."
The Dojo is the place where you go to learn what you don't know from experts who do.
It's really the most interactive and diverse productivity training we can offer ("training" is the key word).
It goes back to the whole idea of having a sensei or master in a dojo. It's the idea of "leveling up" (i.e. different color belts), which speaks to people who want to improve their position in life.
Traditionally speaking, you had to apply in order to train at a dojo, and they were fairly difficult to get in.
In other words, it was "exclusive" (along the lines of a country club).
Back then, you had to prove you were a good fit... or... you wouldn't get accepted. You had to prove not only that you wanted to be there... but that you deserved to be there.
Now, while we don't think we should exclude anyone from joining...
In fact, you should only consider joining...
If you're actually serious about doing more and being better at life!
(...AND smart enough to know - you cannot leave SUCCESS up to chance).
The Dojo is not for people who are happy living a mediocre existence. If you are deadset on punching in and out, working a 9 to 5 at a job you hate... you honestly won't get much out of what we have to offer.
However, if you want to go to the next level (in your life or career)...
If you want to maximize your potential (so you never have regret)...
If you want to become an absolute productivity ninja...
Then let us show you the way.
You'll get a chance to further your knowledge on:
By joining the AE Dojo, you'll be getting access to your very own virtual advisory board -- one that is filled with the most productive people all over the planet.
This will be your secret weapon in making you super productive. Consider it your productivity training ground. It's the place to go to in order to train when you want to improve your productivity skillset.
And just like a martial arts dojo -- you are not alone.
Because the Dojo is a place you can go to get answers to your productivity challenges, and get them exactly WHEN you need them most (or, simply when you need to know more about a particular topic).
Your "training partners" are just a message away, and collaborating or working directly with like-minded people is going to be what accelerates you beyond the herd (you'll be like superman compared to anyone else who thinks they are "productive").
When you step forward and enter the Dojo, here's what you can expect:
Get instant feedback, share ideas, and see how people just like you are doing things their own unique and functional way...
Exclusive access to members of the Asian Efficiency team...
Learn all the secret things we can't cover inside the courses...
Never be alone or unaccountable again! Start finding new peers who can accelerate your progress in a mutually beneficial way...
Get a quicker solution to your latest tech challenges...
Learn something new every month and have it delivered in convenient way...
Get 24/7 access - available at your fingertips, and on your own schedule
Feel confident that when you go in and you need a answer, it's going to be there (or it will be soon...)
Save time by asking real qualified experts (instead of wasting your time Googling the answer...)
Become way more productive without having to leave your seat, whenever and wherever you have internet access...
Learn how to move ahead with what you're working on by getting instant answers to questions no one around you knows how to answer...
Get all the productivity workflows and strategies you need in one place...
Be first to learn about game-changing time freedom shortcuts...
Get faster results in your productivity and finally start living a happier and stress-free life.
But that's not all. When it comes to creating a community, what matters is the people. So we thought you should know...
Since we started the website, we've been pleasantly surprised to discover that our readers are some of the most intelligent and rational people in the world. So when we get praise from them, we are truly inspired by their words. Here are a few of the highlights:
(Note: These quotes are all taken from actual messages which are on file (along with hundreds of others) in AE's internal knowledge management system.)
"My boss recently turned me on to living #AsianEfficient and it has changed my life. I am twice as productive at work and I have already received a big pay raise in recognition of how productive I have been in the past several months...
AE has had a ripple effect to my personal life and overall mental health as well. I had tried other methods and productivity blog sites/podcasts, but no one explains it better or clearer or gets me more motivated to stick to a method than AE. Thank you guys!"
"AE has helped me tremendously. I first found the site back when I was in graduate school and it changed my mindset in how I approached not just my schoolwork but also in my personal pursuits as well. Now that I'm working the wisdom that you and the rest of the AE team have imparted carries on into my working life. I often have coworkers that are amazed by how I manage all the assignments I receive. I notice it too in being able to view problems as systems and how to tweak them to make the situation better. Once again thank you for writing and helping so many of us improve the way we live."
"Before I was a pastor I figured the job was just to study the Bible and care for people. Turns out, there's a lot of other work too! I have struggled with procrastination, failure to follow through on promises and deadlines, etc all my life . With those came the inevitable shame spiral of self-loathing that bottomed out in depression.
The skills that Asian Efficiency has given me have been a major reason for my rise from depression, increased productivity in work and personal life, and so much more passion for what I do.
In just a short time I have started waking up at 5, established morning and evening rituals, simplified the way I use my calendar, learned how to capture and schedule tasks, written my ideal week, gone paperless, and I love the feeling of having my frog done by 10am!
Thanks a billion to the AE team for helping me be #AsianEfficient!"
"I have been following you guys for a few years now and you have help me out so much. My busy days start with a great morning routine that was crafted after reading a listening to you guys. The rest of the day is scheduled and modified using apps. This helps me manage a blog, 2 websites (+their social presence), a full-time job, my masters studies, being a photographer, and a husband. All in all, I owe you guys a debt of gratitude."
"Your website has helped me in numerous ways, and for that I thank you with a digital fist-bump.
Firstly, I've recently implemented a morning ritual that has led to me having increased energy and focus throughout the day... it just sets the day up in the best possible way and provides the frame for how I feel as I start the days work.
Secondly, I've become increasingly proficient in utilising technology to keep on top of my work and personal life. Omnifocus, Evernote, Pomodoro's, InboxZero, GTD concepts and focusing on health and relaxation techniques have helped me immensely to organise and prioritise my life at work and home.
Nothing is perfect though and there is always more to learn and room for improvement. Your website, blog and podcasts are an invaluable resource for me and many others to make positive changes to the way we integrate technology into our work and personal lives."
"I'm father to three gorgeous, but demanding girls and have recently taken the plunge to giving up full-time work and setting up my own business. If I didn't have these dependants it wouldn't be such a worrying state of affairs, however by following your site regularly, twitter feeds etc as well as modifying them to fit my own work/life balance, I feel as though I am in a position to make a success of it.
I provide IT Consultancy services to companies as well as IT Project Management which will pay well for sure as long as I find the contracts, however I'm going to be looking to branch into Productivity for Managers (IT or not) as well as incorporating specialist Mac software into these deliveries. All things that are just a complete passion for me and I know you have a close affinity with!
The reason I'm writing this is so that you can see how much you have inspired me! I follow your core values and try to replicate them as much as possible otherwise the amount of work above just wouldn't happen! Father to three girls, full time IT Consultancy and PM business, website management, authoring two high maintenance books as well as keep up my social media profile - I couldn't do it without role models like yourselves. People, including close family, think I'm mad and almost cult-like (I suffer with OCD which doesn't help. Or does help - depends on your POV!)
So thank you - please keep this up. I will be referencing you constantly throughout my work going forward as if even 1 person in every 10 followed your methodologies, just imagine how much better the world could be? How much more could be achieved? It's scary to think how many improvements we could make if we evangelised your thinking. I will try to represent you as much as I can remotely and I know that I've been able to get some of my closest friends regularly visiting your site already and I haven't even started yet."
"For the last year or so I have been benefiting from your blogs and products and have seen a marked change in my life, from being aware to my energy cycles to being able to enjoy vacation and down-time because I did my work when I needed to.
As a Freelancer I find your techniques especially applicable, and OmniFocus has saved me when I'm juggling multiple clients and projects. Previously I was hovering on the edge of understanding systems, but now I make it a point to try and identify the systems at play in any situation.
I am looking forward to purchasing the Productivity Blueprint in a few months, once my debt payments are complete. All of your content and recommendations are so solid, I happily pass them along to friends and colleagues."
"After many years of trying to keep life going spontaneously and just "winging it"... I found myself completely overwhelmed and uninspired at age 48. I started looking online for guidance.
Your site stands head and shoulders above anything else I've found, and offers a workable blueprint to get out of my funk and back to a manageable, successful, and happy life. I have hope again.
I think you're doing something very meaningful. Please keep refining and developing your program. You're doing excellent work. Much aloha from Hawaii."
"Having had a very busy work life, which seemed to cover the whole gamut of technology coming into the workplace, I find at 70 I'm busier than ever. I still have a home to keep organised, a family and grandchildren to stay in touch with and am a member of a very active U3A (University of the 3rd Age). With events to organise, classes to attend, research to do and a large email Inbox to deal with I need all those hints, tips, nudges and reminders to stay on top of things. I try most ideas you suggest and find that you come up with very practical solutions. Keep them coming... new ideas bring new energy into the mix."
"AE has helped me think in depth about a wide range of productivity hacks (GTD, Inbox Zero, Eat That Frog, OmniFocus, mind mapping, etc.) and how they can increase the performance of the university department of which I am Director. There are far fewer productivity geeks in the university environment than there are in the private sector, so resources and informed opinions are few and far between..."
"I stumbled upon Asian Efficiency shortly after I started working. I was feeling totally overwhelmed by everything I had to do and managing my emails and the daily flow of information was stressing me out. Fast forward 3 years and I still practise inbox zero, clearing to neutral, eating the frog and many more AE skills. I have managed to do a staggering amount of work in the past couple of years and have been asked to give a presentation to incoming graduates on productivity fundamentals – and I'm so amped to do it! Thanks for everything."
"I've learned so much from you over the course of the last year. Like GTD, Omnifocus, Clearing to Neutral, Morning Rituals, Pomodoro and Solar Flaring (I've probably missed a few here). But my personal favorites so far are Inbox Zero and Eat That Frog. You've taken me from a guy who procrastinated on EVERYTHING to a guy who procrastinates on NOTHING. You taught me to take baby steps and break down overwhelming projects into manageable steps and just START working on it (if only for 5 to 10 minutes). And once I start working on the project it seems much easier than I had imagined and I get a momentum going and so I just keep going and usually end up finishing it in far less time than I thought it might take... I'm a self-improvement junkie but after I started reading your articles I made a commitment to put your ideas into action and that's made all the difference. You have a large following (including me) so keep doing what your doing! You're making a difference."
"I'm very grateful for the things that I've learned through you. I've adopted many things from your posts into my life. For example, I try to do the most difficult tasks first or the ones that I am more likely to procrastinate. I also get amazing results from the concept of "resetting". Every time I finish a task I put back everything I used into its original place. This has improved my organization tremendously and now I don't waste any time looking for anything. My computer files are also neatly organised in an external hard drive and I only keep in my computer files that need work. I have become more conscious about the process behind every task. I am more aware of the details and how important it is to plan in order to achieve the best results possible. I am also aware now that we have finite energy to be spent throughout the day and that we need to be wise about spending it. Exercise is a wonderful thing because it generates energy and gives me drive to be active and do things.
One of the best things that I've learned through you is the concept of concentration and how to dedicate ourselves to the task at hand completely. I used to do many things at the same time and it is usually not efficient. Specially because Facebook, youtube, music or any form of unrelated activity gets in the way and eventually your mind is not aware of the present moment but just drifting.
I am a very happy subscriber and I have to thank you for taking the time to give us the essentials through your research."
"I found your blog when I was struggling with email and information overload. I am a stay at home mom and have not worked for 15 years. Now that my children are older I have been thinking again about what I want to do when I grow up. Finding Asian Efficiency has helped me pay attention to time management and my need to establish rituals. I have not yet zeroed in on a five year goal, but I have figured out what I DON'T want to be doing — wasting so much time trying to stay on top of calendars, emails, bills, communication... I find your blog inspiring, motivational and incredibly useful."
"You and your team have made a tremendous impact on my life, my work and personal organization. Staying organized and beating procrastination used to be an endless dreadful battle, but has now turned into a fun hobby (although still a rather endless battle). Equipped with the tools and wisdom you guys preach, emails, tasks and deadlines are now being crunched at a radically different level, motivation and speed."
"When I started this journey with you, I was neither Asian nor Efficient, but I was drawn to your positive outlook and practical recommendations. I slowly adopted the morning, evening and weekly ritual and moved to OmniFocus. I now look forward to each day and manage a very high workload with minimal stress, focusing on what brings me the most joy and brings my company the highest value. Thank you for all you have done for me, my customers and my family.
PS. I am still not Asian. :)"
"It's so hard to sum up my AE story succinctly even though it started just a year ago. I am a 32 year old husband, father of 8 kids, IT Director, etc. I had been using Omnifocus as a basic task manager for a few years, but new it and I was capable of much more, which lead me to your posts on Omnifocus... which then lead to other searches, and more! So to say the least, this has really been one of my most productive years (and that's saying something since I've had a few big ones recently – getting out of debt, graduating college, etc).
AE has helped me redefine what productivity is, which has helped redirect my efforts and make them twice as effective. I've been able to get more things done with less efforts through different strategies like bulk processing and automation. Yes, I tried long and hard to hide the fact that I'm a nerd, but it's obvious when those are the things that excite me. I've been able to help my wife to grasp some productivity ideas thanks to you, and that has helped our home workflow. AE has helped me realized the value of my time and SLEEP – and that I'm not a slacker for resting. Anyway, I know I have a long way to go – especially in the discipline area (can't wait till that module comes out in OF... right?), but AE has busted open the doors for me and I'm really excited to take it up a notch again in 2015!"
"I could write paragraphs upon paragraphs expressing my gratitude for the whole team and the work you guys continue to do. All I really want to say is that the you guys taught me important lessons on becoming an adult and learning to handle things with logic and efficiency. You also taught me to utilize technology to leverage the quality of life while nurturing a wholesome approach towards good habits and values. I only wish that in turn, I could give you all even a fraction of what you've given me. Thanks again for everything."
"I would like to give the whole team a big thank you, but before I do I need to explain why. I have been a subscriber for a long time, and thought one day I will download OmniFocus and implement the GTD mindset and all the other great wealth of life style changes you provide. However, Feb 21 2015 my wife and daughter were on the way home form a birthday party and she lost control of her SUV, and struck several trees. It was a miracle that my daughter was ok, and only suffers from horrible nightmares. However, my wife Natali did not make it. I now raise my two kids on my own, and this summer Asian Efficiency held a webinar for OmniFocus, which I signed up and watched, and offered a discount to join OmniFocus Premium Post. I thought about it and went ahead and gave it a try. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I don't need to tell you raising kids is very time consuming, but raising two kids and going to school full time is not a walk in the park. After reading through the post I was able to GTD. Its sad that a horrible tragedy was the reason I decided to finally go for it. I believe the Asian Efficiency workflow and the OmniFocus Premium Posts helped me get my life back on track. I will be a lifetime member and will highly suggest to others your website. Thank You so very much for sharing all your tips."
"AE acted for me as an eye opener towards time management and productivity.
Their tools, advices, and support allowed me to connect the dots and go from an "instant gratifications seeker" to a "long term goals achiever". I am really happy to have came across their incredible work."

When you join a gym, you pay your membership dues every month so that when you want to work out, you can just go and do it. When you feel energetic and inspired, you have to make the most of that moment, and if you had to go through some long procedure in order to get a workout in, you'd probably lose steam fast.
From idea to execution, we want to make sure nothing is stopping you from taking action on improving your life. That's why every month in the Dojo is different.
As a member, each month you'll be getting:
We really went all out to ensure the Dojo will add tremendous value to your life... and these are just a few aspects that makes this place unique.
So how much is membership going for?
It is affordable -- less than you'd pay for yoga or the gym ... less than a trip to the grocery store... less, even, than a single tank of gas.
Ask anyone who has gone through Asian Efficiency training -- they'll tell you how foolish it is to quibble over a few dollars when the result is learning the most effective productivity skills on the planet!
Here's what you need to do now:
The price for your membership to the AE Dojo is only $29/month.
If you're serious about learning productivity skills you can use for life, wherever you find yourself having the most trouble... then I highly recommend you take us up on this offer.
Because really, when we kept seeing feedback from subscribers about how they couldn’t afford our high-end premium trainings, we wanted to make something that’s accessible and affordable for as many readers as possible.
So far, only a handful of "insider" students (with deep pockets) have gotten this kind of specialized attention... but now you can too.
Again, when you make this wise decision today, not only will you claim a spot in the AE Dojo, but you'll also get these signup bonuses that cannot be bought anywhere else:
And what really makes this offer a “no-brainer” is...
In order to make the AE Dojo 100% Risk-Free to join, we decided to make it easy for you to cancel your membership.
Here’s our guarantee: If you are not satisfied with your Dojo Membership, you may cancel your recurring billing subscription whenever you want. A cancellation means no future payments are charged to your account. The cancellation, however, does not generate a refund - it will only stop future payments.
Unfortunately, there are no refunds. You just won't get billed on the next cycle and lose access. That’s the bad news.
The good news is, you can still enjoy your membership until the end of the month before it's cancelled. And, you’ll get to keep all $223 worth of special bonuses (just for trying us out).
Now, if you’re still deciding when to join, I must warn you...
The AE Dojo will be open for 8 days and then signups will be closed.
Memberships will be available until we either hit 250 members, or when the end date is reached - whichever comes first.
By doing this, it gives us the opportunity to work more closely with our raving customers to improve the Dojo. Those who JOIN NOW will become our “first adopters”. And as such, you will get special treatment that future members (i.e. late adopters) cannot receive.
If you want to capitalize on this once in a lifetime opportunity, NOW is the time to do it.
Here’s your chance (if you believe you’ve got what it takes) to truly master productivity like never before.
