Top Performer is the course Cal Newport and I teach for helping you deeply understand what drives success in your career, and then gives you the strategy for getting really good at those skills. We hold sessions quite infrequently (usually about twice per year), and right now we’re opening registration for another one.
If you’d like to learn more about the course, how it works and whether it’s right for you, see the registration page here.
Everything you need to know about the course is in that link above, but here’s a quick summary of what we teach:
- Research — We give you the tools to figure out how any career works and what skills you need to develop to reach the next level. This works for people early in their careers, still trying to figure out what they want to do. It also works for people who have already advanced in their careers and need to know what it will take to reach the next level.
- Practice — We break down methods for translating the important research in mastery of deliberate practice to knowledge work. In particular, we teach you how to set up effective projects that will allow you to quickly build new skills and master ones that matter for your career.
- Deep Work — Cal and I run through our productivity approaches with a focus on how you can maximize the amount of deep, important things you do every day.
- Mastery — How can you set up long-term career habits to continually push your career forward. This includes how to assess your career capital, set long-term goals and stay focused on the big picture instead of getting bogged down in the day-to-day difficulties.

Keep in mind, registration will be shutting down Friday night at midnight Pacific Time, so if you’d like to join, you’ll need to act before then.
