An Online Course by Abhishek Chakraborty

Reengineer your thinking for the better.

Accelerate your career by transforming yourself from a passive consumer of information to an active generator of ideas.

We are all experts at information consumption. But, even though we may read 10 articles a day, watch 50 videos a week, and finish 100 books a year, when it comes to converting the collected information into actionable knowledge, we don’t do a very good job.

On top of that, most of the content we consume is garbage. They may be well crafted, but bulk of them don’t add anything new to our existing knowledgebase. We often don’t realise this because we engage in passive consumption instead of active utilisation of information.

Schools are responsible for this mishap. They have never taught us how to question what we consume, how to reinterpret what we learn, and how to generate new ideas from our existing knowledge.

This creates serious problems in real world because in the real world you not only need to effectively organise your wealth of knowledge, but also identify the gaps in your knowledge and generate ideas consistently to win arguments, persuade others, and make better decisions. That’s where this course comes in.


Reengineered Thinking (RE:Thinking) is a live 4 week online program where you’ll learn effective strategies to organise your growing knowledge in various fields, identify the gaps in your understanding, and generate new ideas based on what you already know.​

    Is RE:Thinking for me?

    If you wish to generate good ideas, improve your creativity, and become an original thinker, RE:Thinking is for you. Ideal members fall into one of these categories:

    Students and Teachers: Do you feel like you are studying or researching all day, but aren’t getting anywhere? Do you feel that you are lost in an ocean of information but don’t have any idea how to tie all of them together into a coherent form? RE:Thinking will help you get more done by studying less.

    Entrepreneurs and Managers: Do you have trouble in managing all the information you need to make confident business decisions? Do you feel like you need to better articulate your thoughts to communicate your ideas? RE:Thinking will help you learn what works.

    Creators: Are you struggling to generate new ideas for your creative projects? Are you a YouTuber, podcaster, writer, or an journalist who is having a tough time piecing various sources of information together? RE:Thinking will help you hit the accelerator.

    RE:Thinking gives you:

    • How to quickly identify and avoid garbage information
    • How to learn more and consume less
    • How to reinterpret others’ ideas to fit your needs
    • How to organise your growing knowledge in various fields into a structured form
    • How to constantly rediscover and reinterpret already known information
    • How to identify gaps in your understanding and plug the loopholes
    • How to generate new ideas based on what you already know

    Who’s NOT right for this program?

    • If you’re looking for a quick fix, shortcuts, or a one-on-one coach this program is not for you
    • This program isn’t right for you if you’re looking to market your services to your fellow students
    • If you’re already a master thinker and decision maker and have the results to prove it, this isn’t for you
    • If you’re not open to changing your approach, this isn’t for you
    • RE:Thinking isn’t right for you if you’re not willing to do the work, want a plug and play solution, or just want to “get better quickly”. This is a get better slowly program. There are no shortcuts.

    What’s NOT covered in the program?

    The program is not designed to:

    • Tell you exactly what to do. I’ll give you the tools, but I don’t have the perfect solution (and you’ll find that there isn’t one). But I can help you build an effective system that can work well for you.
    • Teach you knowledge management and research methods. I’ll leave that to the academics. What this program is focused on is applicable skills used in the real world by curious folks.
    • Be consumed and not implemented. If you’re looking to passively consume information, there are dozens of books. This program is designed for you to actively walk through the thinking and idea generation process. Consuming it passively will not help you become a better thinker.

    Think of it this way. This program won’t help you pick which stock to buy — but it will help you get clear on your investment strategy so that you can pick your own stocks.

    If you’ve spent time reading biographies trying to reverse engineer the thinking of leaders, entrepreneurs, and CEOs, or you spend your weekends reading decision making and psychology books, but just don’t know how to translate them into actionable insigght when you face a real situation in your own life — you’re in the right spot.

    How much time do I need to commit?

    I recommend 4–6 hours per week to attend the sessions, complete the assignments, and practice the skills.

    This program is action orientated and based on what works in reality. There are no fast or even guaranteed results. Thinking better is more than just taking an online course. While it’s full of timeless behaviours and routines, it’s something you’ll work on getting better at for the rest of your life.

    How much does it cost?

    The first cohort of the program—which includes live sessions, office hours, group discussions, exercises, bonus supplements, and a guided capstone project will cost you $99.

    However, the course content is very dense, so it may be a lot to take in one go. You might want to take the course more than once to cement your learning, and also keep practising. If you want lifetime access to future RE:Thinking cohorts, it would cost you $299.

    NOTE: The pricing would increase with every cohort, therefore the sooner you enroll the better.

    Can I get a discount?

    The short answer is no. The long answer is, if you think this is expensive, you should see the cost of poor thinking. Compared to a degree which won’t help you think better in any way, this is a bargain.

    What If I don’t like the program?

    No problem. I back this program with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Here is how it works:

    Participate the first week. If you feel this program isn’t right for you, send an email to abhishek@coffeeandjunk.com. I would like to know why it didn’t work for you so that I can make it better, but you’ll get a complete refund. Simple as that.

    I still have questions, how can I contact you?

    No problem. Send me an email at abhishek@coffeeandjunk.com


    Invest a few hours a week and I’ll change how you approach creativity, thinking, and learning forever.
