Ep315: Discovering the Way to Optimize Who You Are and Play Your Instrument the Best it Can Possibly Be with Productivity Expert and Co-Founder of Lifehack Method Demir Bentley
June 6, 2022
Salaryman Sudden Death Syndrome might sound new to some, but this is much more common than you think. It is a phenomenon where hardworking men labor for weeks without sufficient rest that can ultimately lead to their demise, or some may call it “death from overwork.”
So when Demir Bentley was diagnosed with Salaryman Sudden Death Syndrome, he began his productivity transformation. See, Demir used to work 80 hours a week to get 40 hours of productivity, and I think a lot of people can relate to that. So instead of working really hard, he promotes working very effectively and or intelligently. And that’s what Lifehack Method stands for; discovering a way to optimize who you are and play your instrument the best it can possibly be played.
Read less and Integrate More
Demir’s big focus with his clients is to read less and integrate more. His book’s methodology, Winning the Week, is really about discovery rather than adding on that information and another strategy and another shiny object. The simpler the tools, the simpler the concepts, and the more likely that when you’re struggling or overwhelmed, you’ll still reach for that tool, and you still be really engaged with that tool.
Winning the Week
Actualizing your productivity the same way you’re actualizing your finances
Manage your time like you manage your money

After Demir’s near-death experience, he and his wife decided to redesign their life around completely different principles. They create the 4 freedoms as their organizing principles in their lives:
What it’s really about is taking radical ownership of your time, so you can design a life that reflects your values, and that actually feels very free and feels very open.
Demir continues to teach hard-hitting efficiency techniques and proven accountability strategies that have helped clients generate millions in revenue while saving thousands of hours.
In the past eight years, he’s helped more than 50,000 professionals, including executives from Facebook, Google, Uber, and PepsiCo, to prevent burnout and create more freedom in their lives.
