(2) Everyone who enters will get some great free tech to help you be more focused and live better.

2) Timeular Tracking Cube

Okay, we admit, this thing is really strange and weird. We think it’s cool though. Helps you track how you’re spending your time. Syncs with your smartphone. It’s weird and cool and we like it.

It’s, like, the book on not being distracted by stupid stuff. Combine with noise-canceling headphones to not be bothered on airplane flights, eh?


Free Tech and Free Events
For All Entrants

Going a step further, we’re going to send everyone who enters free access to some of our tech for hitting flow state (Work Cycles), establishing exceptional habits (Lights), and we’ll host a number of free real-time events for people who enter.

Our productivity tech and events have changed lives, we’ve got dozens of pages of reviews along these lines —

“The biggest thing I realized is that when I focused during Work Cycles, I can get a workday done in 3 hours... By getting the work done in disciplined cycles, that then frees me up to work on bigger things, as well as showing me where I was wasting time in the past.” — Glennn Holman, Consultant; Dallas, Texas

So yeah, you might win cool prizes, and you’ll be guaranteed to get some tech to help you in achieving what you want to achieve. Good times, eh?

“Work cycles has been the most dramatic and unexpected improvement to my working life that I've had in awhile. Seriously - my output has gotten more consistent, more fun, less tiring, and (most importantly) more thoughtful.” — Mohnish Soundararajan, Host and Producer of Moonwalk; New York, NY

When you enter the contest, you’ll get a chance to win the noise-canceling headphones and all the other prizes, and you’ll get all the wonderful free tech right away to help you level-up. Let’s have an amazing March, eh?

I’m new to Ultraworking. What are Work Cycles and Lights?

In short, Work Cycles is a structured way of working to maximize the chance of flow state.

Work Cycles is designed to maximize things just clicking. It’s worked really, really well for thousands of people. We’re excited to have you try it and get an immense amount of gains from it.

“I was pleasantly surprised with my performance — at least 3x more productive than normal. I’ve read about productivity best practices and implemented some of them before, but you have to try something like this to really experience the benefits.” — Neil Taylor, Commercial Director at Mobedia; London, UK

A Lights Spreadsheet is a powerful tool to help ensure your most important habits happen every single day. All around the world, top performers are using a Lights Spreadsheet for greater motivation, consistency, control, ability to analyze, and just staying on track with having an amazing life.

“Your Lights Spreadsheet idea has been one of the most useful things I have done in my life. I've been running on it uninterruptedly for exactly two years this month and it's helped/helping me build better habits, drop bad ones and track how other things in my life are going.” — James K., November 2017

What prize does the grand prize winner get?

The winner will get a starter pack consisting of products and software that will guarantee peak performance:

1) Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC Noise-Canceling Headphones

2) Timeular

3) 1-Year Workflowy Subscription

4) Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

Just curious… how did you choose the prize?

We wanted to set you up with some cool stuff to help you stay focused. Most people will probably be excited about the noise-canceling headphones, but the other prizes are legit really cool too.

Why are you guys doing this?

Mostly because it’s cool and awesome, and we like doing cool/awesome things.

Maybe you’ll try out The Pentathlon or join The Work Gym — our offerings — or maybe not. That’s cool. We’re on a mission to make work fundamentally better and more enjoyable and happy to help as many people as possible hit peak performance.

Also, the starter pack of peak performance-guaranteed prizes are really really cool.
