Folks have been asking me a lot of questions about 5.5 …
When will it be released?
Short answer: as soon as it’s awesome.
As always, we never broadcast specific release dates unless we’re in the rollout stage.
Will Black Belt be part of it?
Yep. When you see Black Belt and 5.5 together you’ll understand why we waited to release them at the same time.
What will be included in 5.5?
We dropped some pretty strong hints in the last two cartoons … All I can say is: it’s our most significant release to date.
How can I get an early look at 5.5?
We’ll be reaching out to Simpleology power users, members of the press, and prominent bloggers to take an early peak before we start rolling it out to the user base. If that’s you, comment below and we’ll consider adding you to the list.
As usual, in order to keep the system stable we will be rolling out to groups of 10,000 users at a time in random order.
You're "killing" me with all of the waiting, here! I too have been with Simpleology since the "paper" days and have been waiting for the Black Belt training for several months now. I am losing productivity by checking several times a day to see if you launched it yet--come on now, people let's get this thing rolling!
Having been with You since the early days of Simpleology I´ve benefited immensely from Your work and recommended it to hundreds of students and colleagues!Now I´ve been waiting for the black belt training quite a while and would very much appreciate to get in on the early list ;-
I would love an early look as I am very excited to finish up with the Black Belt. I love the systems that make me more productive in all phases of my life.
I'd like to get an early look at 5.5 - I'm ready to start my black belt training, I've been a user of Simpleology since the old paper system, and I've been able to see how much more I get done when using it!
Sign me up! Brand new to simpleology but PM by trade, MSproj expert. Have been looking for tool to share with team.
Hey Mark, been chomping at the bit for the release of the Black Belt Training, now 5.5! Talk about dangling the carrot... scheesh! OK, deep breathing ... think simple ... repeating, "I must be patient, I must be patient." Does it count that I worked for a weekly newspaper in 1975? I's sure my press pass is around here somewhere.
I enjoy using Simpleology....at one time I used lists all the time and they were very effective, however over the years my lifestyle has really changed. Your program is getting me back on track. Love it!!
Simpleology is one of the best daily habits I have. Very interested in the new release.

You mention random order - is that ascending consecutive random order or favorably selective random order? Either way, can't wait to check it out. Sincerely, Your most loyal, never miss a day, early adopting Simpleologist. ............Um, I off the list now, aren't I.
How do you define "Power User"?
I would never want to be without this great tool and I use it at least 5 days per week, usually six and often seven. I would think that makes me a normal user, 'cause this is one of those things you either use or you don't.
I would love to be part of your early roll out group though and would be honored to be added to your list.
I've started using Simpleology 5.0 Elite and even on white belt, it's changing my life personally and professionally. I would love to test out 5.5.
Thank you MJ
please add me to the list. I have become a heavy user and cant wait to get started on my black belt training...
sounds exciting ... have you ever considered including Evernote as a tool to be used hand-in-hand with Simpleology?
Please consider me as a person for the first group of users in your 5.5 platform. Since starting using Simpleology last month I have used it everyday for 28 straight days. You can check my streak!
Count me in. Unfortunately I'm not a Black Belt :-(But I use speleology for just about everything. And I give you money just cause I love it - haha
I blog to the business community in the UK via a support organisation (NBSL) and a Daily Business blog (bdaily) and would be interested in being a beta tester.
Count me in! I love this stuff. Been going through a PM evaluation and I'm dying to see the Simpleology spin on it in 5.5. I'm sure it's awesome...can't wait.
Looking forward to this one perhaps even more so than the others (not sure why, but I just think it's going to be awesome++).
Let me know if you want my help with testing / feedback etc. Thanks.
I'm a regular user, not a power user, but can't wait to start Black Belt and see what's going on with 5.5. The backward planner alone has made new possibilities happen for me in actually moving forward with my plans and goals. Thanks for all of it so far and I can't wait to see what's next.
Sounds awesome! This is exactly the issue I have been having with trying to fit simpleology into the current project management system in my small business. I love Simpleology and will love to be part of the beta test :)
I've been using Simpleology for over 3 years. It has ramped my productivity through the roof and has become an essential part of my daily routine. I want to achieve my black belt and see what 5.5 has to offer as soon as possible. I'm happy to give feedback - both the good and the bad - to make sure that this will be the best Simpleology rollout so far!
I use Simpleology every single day and it has changed my life. I would not be where I am today if not for you and this wonderful tool, thanks!
I was able to point out a couple of issues with the current version, that were fixed by the next day :) I would love to be part of the beta test group.
This stuff is great, keep it coming.
yeah! me to, can't wait to black Belt ...and can't stand "Black Belt Training Coming Very Soon!" Simpleology is addictive, and I want it :)
Just finished my red belt and am hungry for more! Since I started using Simpleology in June, I've gotten significantly more focused, effective, and clear on my goals in both my personal and my business life. As a young entrepreneur, I say hat's off to you; and thank you as well for introducing me to Dave Asprey and Bulletproof Coffee, it's absolutely delicious.I'm a blogger myself and would love for you to put me on your list, thanks Mark!
Took a month off from my online business but the timing is awesome, as I'm about to get back in the saddle. Would love to be a part of the Beta test! :)
