Ready to stop leaving projects unfinished and start achieving real results?
It's time to learn how to think like a producer. If you're like most people what's limiting you from the next step isn't really your main skill area - whether that's programming, writing, or otherwise - it's about learning how to use your time in a way that adds up to something releasable.
In this course, you'll learn how to use a simple process to avoid indecision or wasted effort while making continual progress towards achieving your bigger goals. No more feeling demoralized over hard work that never seems to go anywhere. You'll learn to plan effectively and stay on track to launch your long-term projects, every time.
Whether you want to start your own YouTube channel, set up a podcast, develop a video game, or something else entirely, the strategies you'll learn here can be applied to nearly any kind of project. Even better, you'll learn how to adapt your plans as you go, so instead of feeling anxiety around predicting the future you'll move forward with confidence that you're prepared to make the best of how things are playing out.
2 Full Productivity Audiobooks/Ebooks Included (Additional 7 hours 24 min Audio)
To help you even more, at the end of this course you'll receive two full productivity audiobooks (including the ebook transcripts!): Self-Command (run time 4 hours 54 minutes) and Self-Doubt (2 hours 30 minutes). These audio programs teach techniques and effective ways of thinking to help you follow through on the current task, as well as the tools to give yourself a chance doing something you've never done before. By combining those techniques with this course you'll have everything you need to not only set up a plan, but act on each step of it, and target your plans at goals you never thought possible.
These 2 audiobooks were developed separately, sold as a bundle for $41 with a 5/5 rating, but will be yours with this new video course at no extra cost. You'll be able to simply download the audio or ebook versions as the resources attached for the final section.

Responses to Self-Command and Self-Doubt, my two productivity audiobooks/ebooks both fully included with your purchase of this course (downloadable as the resources for the last section):
"Ever since I started Self-Command, I get so much more done in a day than ever before, with less unintended side tracking. I'm so very grateful for Chris' wonderful work. I highly recommend it."
"Several years after listening to Self-Command, Chris’ whiteboard technique continues to be central to my daily productivity. Having already been a bit of a nerd for productivity hacks and techniques, I found the techniques and mindsets Chris discusses to be really fresh and incredibly practical."
"I have diagnosed ADHD, so it's always hard to make decisions about how I should be spending my time. Self-Command gave me new tools to help cut through the noise and spend more of my time on things that matter... the things that I want to be doing."
"Veteran shoutout for Chris's book Self-Command. Talks about solving a meaningful problem many of us have. If you find yourself struggling to start, I can not recommend it higher. We all know service jacks you up, especially with setting independent, meaningful goals. Check it out"
"Great book (Self-Doubt), even better than Self-Command - A++. Excellent format. Loved the often snappy-answers/reality checks for the quick answer, followed by the longer explanations. Truly great compilation of questions."
Puzzles By Joe
"As a mid 30's career changer, these addressed deep seated fears I have but didn't really want to articulate. I thought this [Self-Doubt] was great! A lot of value added for me, the answers had some great nuggets of wisdom. Especially because the ask is a little over 2 hours this is an easy recommendation I'd make to others as an addendum or expansion pack for Self Command."
MMO Associate Systems Game Designer
"The last part - 'what if I don't see or feel myself making progress?' - was really good. The language is very understandable for me (English is not my first language). The pacing of the speech is spot-on."
