This course is laid out to 10 simple steps. Each step is available on video, audio and in a written form. Each lesson lasts a little over 5 minutes - so it's really short and to the point.
Step 1 in the course is about "Clearing your mind" and putting everything into your trusted system. We'll talk about Inboxes and how to use them, to make sure your mind is focused and nothing gets forgotten.
Step 2 is about organizing your tasks into projects. About dividing the big tasks into small, actionable steps to ensure you'll always get them done. You'll become a project management ninja after this lesson.
Step 3 is about defining your "next actions" - your priority tasks that need to be done next to keep your projects moving forward. You'll learn that sometimes it takes getting just one small task done to move an avalanche of a project forward and begin accomplishing your goals.
Step 4 is about being productive anywhere. Using your computer, smartphone or tablet. Today's era of technology enables us to get tasks done anywhere and have more free time later!
Step 5 is about collaborating. We live in a connected world and your colleagues as well as your close friends can help you get a lot more done. You'll learn how to share projects, delegate tasks and communicate through them effectively.
Step 6 is about working in contexts - it's a second, and very helpful layer of productivity, where you divide tasks not only into projects, but into places these can be done in, tools these can be done with, and so on.
Step 7 is about managing your reference material and documents. Store your notes and digitize as much content as you can to make sure to have it at hand when you're getting your tasks done. Lots of tricks and apps can help you with that.
Step 8 is about reviewing your recently set up productivity system. At least once a week you need to have a meeting with yourself and review your tasks, projects, lists and goals. Learn to start your next week fresh!
Step 9 is about Email and how to handle it. How to process it to zero and how to handle others' expectations when it comes to an email reply. How to make sure you don't get lost in the flood of email messages coming in.
Step 10 is where I help you start with everything you've learned so far. I will add several tips and tricks that work for me and point you toward additional materials for inspiration for action.
Here they are - 10 steps to building powerful productivity habits that will help you achieve your goals, get more done and most of all, enjoy more free time!
