Who is
Tom Solid?

TomSolid Profile Pic

I’m Dr. Thomas Roedl, but most people on the internet call me Tom Solid. I’m the founder of the Paperless Movement.

For the last 16+ years, I’ve worked in big industry and academic institutions solving the exact same problems that you’re experiencing right now.

In that time, I helped increase productivity on multiple teams in various industries by as much as 60% through the implementation of effective project management tools and systems.

My experiences led me to create the ICOR framework, which is at the core of the Paperless Movement and the framework that I use inside the Inner Circle.

When you join my community, I’ll guide you through that framework and share with you everything I’ve learned from nearly two decades of productivity systems management.

I hope to see you inside!

ICOR Framework

My ICOR Framework will give you the blueprint you need to get your productivity system to the next level.

ICOR stands for Input, Control, Output, Refine.

Unlike other concepts, ICOR covers more than one specific area of your productivity system, such as knowledge management. Instead, ICOR helps you to build your very own end-to-end productivity solution. Most importantly, ICOR is tool-agnostic.

That means you can use the tools YOU love, plus find others that help connect the dots for your workflow. I created ICOR to be the ultimate framework for streamlining and automating systems and processes.

By joining my Inner Circle, the ICOR framework will get your productivity system running like a well-oiled machine in no time! 

In my Inner Circle I will help you...

You might think: “15 min? How is this enough time to know what my system looks like and make it more efficient?”

In truth, I’m very efficient when it comes to analyzing existing processes and find bottlenecks. This is my personal genius zone and what I do every day.

Tom's Masterclass


Those who travel alone, travel fast. But those who travel together, travel far.  In short, we learn best when we learn with others.  

My growing community of nearly 300 digital productivity enthusiasts offers a vibrant and diverse range of experiences. Build meaningful relationships with a variety of entrepreneurs, educators, gig workers, and other like-minded professionals. From them you’ll get perspective and feedback on your strategy, tactics, and ideas via the member-only Forum and Facebook Group.

No more guesswork – great advice where and when you need it.


My online courses differ from my masterclasses in that they are less about concepts and systems, and more about concrete how-to’s and tools.

With these courses you’ll learn the ins and outs of the latest and greatest project management platforms, plus gain little-known insights that will boost your chosen platform’s usability and efficiency.

Practical courses that put you in control – fast.



I’ve developed more than a dozen productivity guides, which I’ve built to help you master critical aspects of your productivity system. From X topic to Y, you’ll find something to level up your efficiency and make you a true Highly Productive Pro.

See this as an investment into your productivity life.

Just consider that if you would save as little as 12 min a day, that will result in 1h per week. That’s more than an entire extra working week per year. Imagine what you could do with an extra week on any given project. Or imagine, as a freelancer earning $50/hr, that’s an extra $2600 per year.

Who the Inner Circle is For

Who the Inner Circle is not For

It might seem weird that I'm trying to talk you OUT of becoming a member, but one of the main benefits of being in the Inner Circle is having the right people inside. I would far rather you decide that it's not for you NOW, than have you join and find out that it's NOT a good fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Will the paperless Movement still be useful if I'm not using iPad, Mac or iPhone?

Yes! Most of the apps and software that I recommend are available on multiple platforms or are web based. However, especially for digital note-taking using a stylus, I will recommend apps mainly available on iPadOS, using an iPad and Apple Pencil.
That said, inside our community, you’ll meet a lot of people who will be happy to share their experiences with various toolsets as well.

If i cancel, do i retain access to content that was released while I was still an active member?

No. Your membership entitles you to enter the members area and access the content there released prior and during the duration of your membership. If you cancel or do not renew your membership, you will no longer be able to access the member-only content.

how can i cancel my membership?

Obviously I’d love it if all of our members stuck around forever – but if you do decide to cancel then you’ll be able to do so with just 2 clicks of a mouse from within your account page. In most cases, your membership will remain active until your renewal date.

I’m not 100% sure what the paperless movement is or if it's right for me. do you offer a trial so I can test it out?

No, I’m not currently offering a trial. However, I do offer a 100% money-back guarantee. I stand by that guarantee. If you’re not getting what you paid for, just let me know and I’ll make you whole. If you have questions, just let me know. Simply send me an email using
