1:1 Tana coaching

Build your tailor made knowledge system in 5 hours

If you're serious about knowledge management, Tana can become your knowledge powerhouse.

But here's the thing: Tana's true power lies in its customization. It allows you to create systems and structures that reflect YOUR unique way of thinking and dealing with your domain.

Building this kind of tailored system takes effort and comes with a learning curve.

If you value your time above all else and want to cut through that learning curve, you are in the right place!

With my 1:1 coaching program, I'll help you build your perfect, tailor-made AI-optimized knowledge system in just 5 hours.

First principles

Building a robust knowledge system requires a nuanced understanding of computer science, cognitive science, and complexity. In the course, there will be a strong emphasis on core concepts/models for a solid foundation.

Run inside in Tana

The whole program will be fully integrated into Tana workspace. All the workshops will be done right on the spot! That will give you a full immersion effect.

Lab spirit

Although I call this program a course, there will be quite a few elements from the laboratory. You will have the opportunity to work on your own system, applying knowledge immediately, sharing raw ideas & learnings with a group.

Ecosystem

My goal is to show you real-life use cases. So, we'll explore the whole sensemaking ecosystem built around Tana. We will use Readwise, ChatGPT, Gemini, NetworkX, Perplexity, and other tools.

Structuring the vast body of research

We'll explore Robert Kegan's works on Levels of Self.
How is his framework connected to recent scientific studies and other similar frameworks.
We're going to make a general structure that will help us to gain a better understanding of the subjects.

Building your own KNOWLEDGE ENVIRONMENT

Together, we'll (re)design & build an MVP of a your PKM system using Constraints, Protocols & Threads.
The system will heavily utilize custom structures & AI.

Here is the example of SENSEMAKING ENVIRONMENT from the Cohort #2:

FAQ

Who is this course for?

Researchers
Lifelong learners
Analysts
Consultants
Entrepreneurs
Writers
Students
Professors
Lawyers
Polymaths

Basically for all knowledge workers who deal with a lot of diverse information and want to utilize Tana's full potential.

What is the size of the group?

15 people MAX.
I designed the course around workshops and BUILD together sessions in a shared Tana workspace. These formats only work in small groups.

Do I need to know Tana fundamentals to participate?

Yes. You will benefit from the course if you already have some experience with Tana and have a grasp on basic stuff: supertags, fields, and live queries.
Don't worry if your Tana skills are not perfect yet.
If you have any difficulties, I will be available to answer questions during the whole time.

At what time the live event will be held?

They will be on weekends for sure.
I want to stay flexible and schedule a time/date that will work best for the group based on the poll.
Obviously It's hard to find a spot that will work best for, let's say, people in Singapore and LA. If we experience this, I'm open to doing two sessions of each workshop for different timezones.
For me, it's super important to give each participant the best experience possible!

Do I have to attend all the events?

While live events are an important part of the course, It's okay to skip some of them and watch recordings. You will get access to the recordings within 24 hours of the event.

Can I get a refund?

14-day refunds are available. Just send me an email, and I'll refund you, no questions asked.
