Modern professionals are efficient only when they permanently develop new intellectual products and content.

Contrary to popular myth, intellectual products and intellectual content is not a result of a sudden idea but rather a result of organizing and summarizing all personal experience and large amounts of filtered information.

Ideally, these skills should be trained at school. But statistics show that a qualified person is unable to perform all these things without special training.

Our course is designed as a temporary "shell" which provides the intellectual skills needed to develop your creative, social or business product or intellectual content.

Here you will learn how:
— to distinguish valuable information and eliminate all the rest
— to process intense flows of information
— to make conclusions from data to solve a problem
— to organize personal knowledge base
— to work regularly without motivation

* The course was originally designed by the chief editor of Livrezon Publishing House —
Anatoly Ryzhachkov.
