Yu-kai Chou
Author, Speaker, Designer, and Creator of Octalysis Framework

Octalysis Prime has been the most important project in my life thus far. It’s what I want my legacy to be.

Instead of just doing cool things myself, I want to raise up a whole generation of Octalysis practitioners to become successful at everything they do and make a difference in this world, while enjoying every step of it.

With the behavioral knowledge of Octalysis Prime, I am 100% confident this is possible (I lived through that myself, becoming successful and HAPPY at almost everything I do).

Historically, the right knowledge has helped obtain jobs, establish relationships, and even won elections and wars. Out of all the investments out there, investing in YOURSELF is the one that is guaranteed to give you life long returns (outside the unlikely case of getting amnesia and forgetting all your learnings).

Octalysis Prime is much more affordable compared to University programs but could transform you towards new heights in life. I’m extremely excited about it, and I’m even more excited to see you become a member in the community. I myself am waiting for the day my twin daughters Symphony and Harmony Chou become old enough to join OP too and become Overpowered throughout their entire lives

Say hi to me on Slack when you get in.
