The C.O.D.E. System

Our proven 4-step process for consistently turning information into creative output





Silvano Arieti wrote that “Creative products are always shiny and new;
the creative process is ancient and unchanging.”

Technology is constantly changing, but the heart of the creative process remains fundamentally the same: capturing information from the outside world, organizing it into chunks, distilling them down to the best parts, and then expressing your unique voice through writing, speaking, designing, teaching, and creating.

By leveraging the power of technology rather than fighting it, we can supercharge our creativity and leverage our ideas to transform our career, business, and life.

Living by this creative C.O.D.E. allows you to surf the waves of information,
instead of being drowned by them.
