Ideas, Tasks, Contacts. Notes from Meetings, Books, Podcasts, Courses, and More with ONE Tool

Do you feel distracted, disorganized and overwhemed by information overload?

Anytime I talk to knowledge workers and creatives, three challenges come up repeatedly, They're overwhelmed by information overload, distracted, and disorganized. How many of these apply to you?

Moving information from one place to another, managing multiple inboxes, text messages, open browser tabs, social media, productivity apps, and an infinite supply of content that's one click away can make your days feel like a 24 hour game of whack a mole or a trip to a different grocery store to buy every item on your list.

  • I have too many disparate threads, lose track of where I collect information, and have to retrace the steps in my thought process each time I have to get back to task.
  • I struggle to organize my notes, so they're easy to find when I need them.
  • I finally get to the point of just letting important stuff fall off the plate because there's too much.
  • I have a dozen tabs open on my computer, save articles I never read, and start books that I never finish.
  • Organizing and structuring information to be easily retrieved in the context it is needed is one of my biggest challenges.
  • I use Asana, excel (for time blocking), Dropbox, Google Drive, Trello, random pieces of paper, and folders on my desktop.

Why productivity apps haven't solved your problems

Productivity apps and "life hacks" address symptoms, but none address the root cause.

How you organize the information you need to do your MOST IMPORTANT work

  • Digital distraction blockers prevent you from checking email 100 times a day. But they don't make it effortless to retrieve information when you need it.

  • Time management hacks like the Pomodoro method don't prevent you from using multiple tools to complete a simple task.

  • Folders are like digital closets that need to be continually organized and maintained. And if you want to retrieve a file, you have to remember where you saved it.

Design a Workflow that Makes You Feel, Calm, Focused, and Organized

Create a System that Organizes Itself

Instead of losing track of where you collect information, organize your notes so they're easy to retrieve without remembering where you saved them.

Because Mem doesn't use folders, you'll never have to remember where you saved something. See every note you've captured in chronological order. Find any note you've captured without having to retrace your thought process You'll have a self-organizing system that allows you to offload everything on your mind.

Keep Track of Everything

Instead of using random stickies, scrap papers, files, binders, a messy inbox, a half-used calendar, and letting what's important fall off your plate, keep track of everything in your life, in Mem.

Capture ideas, notes, tasks, moments, contacts, and everything that matters in Mem. Know exactly what tasks you need to complete for every project, have zoom links, notes, and resources from every meeting right at your fingertips.

Capture, Connect, Retrieve, and Create

Instead of storing and managing information in folders, build a system that helps you make connections between ideas, unleash your creative potential, and generate knowledge.

Unlike other note-taking tools, Mem gives you a seamless method for capture and retrieval, allows you to organize information the way you think, have spontaneous Insight without immediate action, make connections between your ideas and generate new knowledge.


The course for knowledge workers, creatives, and people who want to reduce information overload, minimize digital distractions, capture, retrieve, and connect notes, ideas, tasks, projects, and remember everything that matters.

Use ONE app to Organize Your Digital Life

Keep everything in one place where you can capture your tasks, thoughts, and ideas. Organize your notes from meetings, books, podcasts, and courses, so they are easy to find when you need them.

I'm not very technical, will this work for me?

Like any other new tool you use or skill you develop, there's a learning curve. But the goal of Maximize Your Output is to help you simplify your digital life, not make it harder. So you should be fine. If you have any concerns, email me at

How long will this course take?

The course modules are 10-15 minutes each. You could theoretically finish all the modules in less than ten days. But unless you implement the ideas in the course, you won't capitalize on the benefits of Mem. I recommend setting aside 30 minutes a day.

What's the difference between the Self-paced and Cohort?

With the self-paced version, you'll watch pre-recorded videos. It's up to you to implement the concepts in the course. The cohort version is live interactive, and I'll help you implement each of the ideas in real-time. If you frequently buy online courses but never log in, the cohort is a better option.

What's the format for the Cohort?

In the first portion of each session, we'll go through the key ideas and concepts for getting the most out of our Mem. Then, you'll work with other participants in breakouts to implement what you've learned about using Mem. All sessions are Monday and Thursday evenings at 6 pm MST from February 14-March 7.

I already purchased the self-paced version. Can I sign up for the cohort?

Yes. Fill out this form and I'll send you a discount code that you can use to register for the cohort version of the course.

What's included in the Productivity Makeover?

I'll work with you to conduct a workflow audit to understand your current workflow for managing projects and tasks. Together, we'll identify the bottlenecks causing you to waste time.

Second, I'll work with you to determine your priorities and design a knowledge management system that's custom-tailored to help you accomplish your goals without feeling like you're drowning in the information or dropping the ball.

Your custom-designed knowledge management system includes The Maximize Your Output Cohort, all the modules in Maximize Your Output, and three one-hour consultations, in which we'll build your system together.

Who is the instructor?

I'm Srini Rao, host and founder of the Unmistakable Creative Podcast and the author of the Wall Street Journal Best-seller The Art of Being Unmistakable. I've produced over 1000 podcast episodes, published four books, launched dozens of creative projects, and raised a round of venture funding in the past ten years. I've tried DOZENS of different solutions to manage my workflow.

Whether it's a book or app that will help you increase your productivity, chances are I've read the book or used the app. And all of them suck in comparison to Mem. Mem has made it possible to combine the best productivity strategies from over 1000 books and 1000 interviews with successful people. And now I want to share them with you. I've also been using Mem for more than a year

What's the refund policy?

For the self-paced version, you can try the course out for 30 days, and we'll refund your purchase no questions asked. If you register for the cohort and realize before it starts that it isn't for you, we'll refund you 85% of the purchase price. After it starts, consider yourself committed no refunds will be given. Refund requests must be received in writing at
