Nathan Challen

A.K.A. ‘theDayNinja’. Computer scientist, hacker, family man & father of 3. 

I am not a psychologist nor a neuroscientist. I’m just like you.
My entire work life I’ve experimented daily to uncover what it takes to make the most of every day – now I am sharing it with you.

Tech founder & entrepreneur Nathan Challen has refined his productivity using the scientific method.  Reading countless books and experimenting daily on himself to ‘hack’ his brain, the result is “the DayNinja Method” for productivity and peak performance.  His programs and apps have been embraced in 130+ countries across the world impacting thousands who have learned his method ‘Zen and the Art of Getting Sh*t Done’©. 

Unlocking the super-human power of flow through the DayNinja Method is his contribution to the world’s next generation creatives, knowledge workers and entrepreneurs.

I designed and built the DayNinja App for my own use and later released it to the world in 2016 hoping others would benefit.  However, I found in talking to users that the app itself was not enough.  If I was to really help, I needed to teach people how to think and make decisions. The DayNinja Method is the result of years of analysing what made me personally perform at my best.  This involved measuring all aspects of life, not just my work hours, more than anything I found it was mostly about what was in my head.  

“What gets measured, gets improved” – Peter Drucker

In order to track my performance I tried many tools and techniques, of course (being a software guy)  I coded more tools, forms, spreadsheets but what I found works best is a simple printed sheet. 
One of these sheets is by my side daily with my hand written notes scribbled all over it.   I’ve evolved this resource to include just the items that are crucial to measuring and improving peak performance.

This resource – the DayNinja ‘Day Sheet’ has been an integral part of the analysis that led to the formation of the DayNinja Method.  Coaching students of the DayNinja method Flow on Demand program rave about it:

“The ‘Day Sheet’ helps me to both plan my day and reflect.   I can pick-up when something I have changed has either improved or detracted from my performance.” – Jen P.
