What this bootcamp does NOT offer
We do NOT teach you the subject or provide content. There is a sea of content out there - we won’t burden you with more.

What participants say about XFL bootcamp
"The bootcamp was all about cultivating discipline and focus. I learnt how to incorporate a range of learning strategies to accomplish goals. I have seen a remarkable change in my learning skills, such as learning the subject with maximum attention in one hour rather than four hours. I have taught pomodoro technique to my kids as well. I will recommend this to anyone who has the curiosity to learn something new and to achieve career and knowledge growth goals"
Senior Manager, IT
"After being in the industry for 20 years, I was looking to upskill to stay relevant. I enrolled in many online courses but was not able to complete them. Then, I enrolled for the Learning Bootcamp. Everything is conducted with clockwork precision. I was able to learn simple yet powerful techniques that helped me achieve significant progress in my learning journey. I'll be enrolling in other bootcamps to build good habits and realize my goals. This is a no BS course which is truly life-changing and I highly recommend it."
Global Product Owner
"In my profession, I have to keep up-to-date with the latest technologies. I'd buy many courses but never finish any. I joined the learning bootcamp expecting to build a learning habit and I achieved more than that. I learnt in one month in this bootcamp, what I haven’t done in the last 3 years. I also learned "how to learn" properly. During this bootcamp what I realized is we can watch a lot of videos on YouTube but when we learn as a community and strive for something as a community, it helps a lot more."
Boost your learning productivity
We help you beat procrastination and complete your courses in a timebound manner.
A routine that works even for busy people
Our simple learning routine helps you make consistent progress every week. You commit to just 3 weekdays + Saturday to learn. You’re free to pick the weekdays that you want to. The only thing we ask of you is to show up. You will make steady progress week after week, at the optimum pace for you. Busy-ness need not block your personal growth any longer.
Positive social pressure and accountability to enforce behaviour
You abandoned your previous learning attempts because there were no immediate consequences when you stopped. Through the sense of accountability that you feel towards your peer group and the commitment you made to our team, you feel a positive pressure to show up. When you show up, learning automatically happens.
Strong push to break procrastination from Day 1
We start with a strong push to break the inertia and take action right from the first day. To prevent you from procrastinating again, we get you to commit to a learning plan. For many of our participants, that strong initial trigger helps them break the spell and then push ahead on that momentum. If you slow down, our team immediately steps in to course-correct.
Take focused learning to the next level
Every learning session starts with a short activity to channel focus and discipline for the session. We also show you how to unlock learning efficacy through scientific learning techniques, which we also encourage you to practise during the sessions. We insist on certain non-negotiable requirements -- e.g, during the study session task-switching is banned.
FAQ - Extreme Focused Learning
What course is covered during the bootcamp? Will I get the content?
Extreme Focused Learning Bootcamp is a self-study program designed to boost learning productivity and build the learning habit so you develop the ability to complete courses on time.
Why should I join the bootcamp when I can study on my own?
If you have the mindset and discipline to devote time consistently to study on your own, you don't need the support of any bootcamp or program. However, consistent learning is hard especially when you are out of college, and there is no "exam" looming that motivates you to hit the books. Even with the best of intentions, 90-95% of us abandon our Coursera, Udemy, and edX courses without completing them.
I am not a student. Is the learning bootcamp suitable for me?
Yes! In fact, most of our participants are working professionals who are unable to prioritize their learning and self-development over other competing professional and personal requirements.
Do you offer a refund policy?
Yes! We offer a 100% refund if you withdraw from the program within 3 days of the start date. The first 3 days will give you enough time to understand how the program works.
How does the program work? What do I have to do?
The XFL bootcamp runs as 4-week cohorts. Once you enroll in the program, you will be invited to attend an orientation session. This session is compulsory attend for you to continue in the program.
Are all sessions compulsory? What if I miss a session?
You must enroll for the program only if you have a conducive schedule. The only non-negotiable requirement that we have for the program is that you show up on the days that you have committed to.

I want to attend learning sessions on all 5 weekdays instead of just 3 days. Do you allow that?
Yes. You are welcome to join all 5 weekdays of learning sessions to make faster progress on your learning goals.
When does the next batch of Extreme Focused Learning start?
Please check Upcoming Bootcamp Schedule for more details about the next batch.
I don't have any specific course to complete. Can I still enroll?
Yes. If you have a book to read or a project/thesis to complete, this bootcamp will still be beneficial for you. As long as you have a specific important activity to complete, you may enroll in the bootcamp.
