The UltimateCommonplace System



"If you want to make money with your ideas and be someone who's paid to think, then you NEED a commonplace."

Karl-Mikael Syding
Hedge Fund Manager of the Decade


From: Ludvig Sunström

To: Soon-to-be commonplace masters

Ludvig Sunström
Stockholm, Sweden

Hey friend,

In the last 3 years (I just turned 25) I have gone from being a university student to starting my own business...

...from total obscurity to (relative) "Internet-fame" via my website StartGainingMomentum (+1,000,000 views)...

...from having barely heard of podcasts, to hosting one of Sweden's more popular ones (with Mikael Syding,"The Hedge Fund Manager of the Decade").


I've also read something like 200 books over this period.

I'm not telling you these things to brag, but rather to show what's possible when you're a little bit systematic, effective, and you do away with many of the unnecessary things in your life.

My commonplace has helped me with these things. And more. . .



My Commonplace is Currently Worth ~$50,000

I can't sell it, but that's what it's worth to me.
How much would a commonplace be worth to you??
That depends entirely on you.

But one thing is for sure. . .

Every knowledge worker NEEDS to have a commonplace.
And if you're already making good money, then a robust commonplace will almost instantly be valuable to you.
By improving the quality of your work, by making you more effective, and by saving you time in bunch of ways.
Here are some of the things I routinely use my commonplace for:
  • As an information system (for all my assets/projects)
  • As a creative outlet (for articles, podcast material, and so on....)
  • To work from anywhere in the world
  • To help me save time by cutting out B.S routine tasks
  • To set my self-development on semi-automation
  • To make better decisions and think more accurately
  • To learn things faster and instruct others
If you could do these things too, how much would that be worth to you? 
A lot, I'm guessing.


What's a Commonplace?


A "commonplace book" was an ancient, little-known method among elite thinkers and scholars for improving their thinking and creativity. 

But that was the OLD way... 

It was cool, but it didn't make money

Compare Da Vinci to, for example, the entrepreneur Aristotle Onassis...

Onassis was a self-made billionaire who didn't even have a desk or a regular office to work from.

The beauty of Onassis' success is that his ENTIRE focus was on getting things done. He ran his business empire with a multi-purpose "commonplace" that had all the information he needed.

So... when I'm talking about commonplacing, I'm not talking about the old type of "commonplace book" that Da-Vinci was doing.

I'm talking about creating a modern, multi-purpose commonplace system.



  But Now That I've Got it, it Improves Every Other Area of My Life!


Thanks to my commonplace system, things are now a LOT easier.

(I can't really imagine what my life would be like without it at this point...)


But you don't have to spend 4 years to build your commonplace and come up with systems for it.


You can do it in just one week.

Why so fast?
Because you'll know all the FUNDAMENTALS.
The reason it took me such a long time was because when I started there was no information on commonplacing.
No one taught me the fundamentals.
I had to learn it all by myself and build my commonplace from scratch.
Some of it I came up with by myself, other pieces I copied from here and there (mainly through my studies of the greatest men in history).
Finally, I had come up with a working system to:
  • Focus my energy on the RIGHT ideas (scales over time)
  • Organize incoherent information into actionable knowledge
  • 10x my learning
  • Gain courage to pursue CRAZY ideas (become more creative)
  • Systematize my LIFE with software (email, apps, biodata, etc)

I've detailed it, step-by-step, in this 150-page manual:
