Time is precious. You can earn more money, but you will never get more time. Managing your time is managing your life.
This course will help you take your time management skills to the next level.

Today people have problems with ever-growing lists of tasks that seem to have no end. They multitask. Their life is filled with distractions, from office noise, through emails and chat, to social media and news. In the end, they blame themselves for procrastination and the inability to work regularly. In all of this, they usually do their best to get stuff done and also help their colleagues.

This course will help you with those issues. You will be more productive and find a balance between achieving your goals, relationships, leisure and creative time.

It is an essence of over 40 books, 10 years of practice and feedback from over 2000 students - online and offline.

If you want to know the core of “Getting Things Done”, “Essentialism”, “The power of habit”, “Your brain at work” and many more and how they fit together - this course is for you. All comes from a teacher passionate about the topic, who has over 10 years of experience in large corporations and smaller companies and spent over 6 years in learning and development.


I believe this is a missing piece in our education system, so we will learn:

  • How our brain functions and why we sometimes need lists. Also how to form sustainable, long-term habits.

  • 4 common mistakes that people make with their task lists and how to solve them.

  • 7 strategies to overcome distractions.

  • Over 30 best apps and plugins that support everyday organization.

  • How to effectively plan our days in under 5 minutes.

  • How to effectively prioritize in short-term, mid-term and long-term.


When you finish the course you will:

  • Be able to stay organized, even with changing priorities and distractions - this will lower your stress and give you the feeling of control.

  • Be more effective and have more time and energy for things that are important to you - family, friends, hobby, development, leisure.

  • Be able to focus on what is the most important and make progress

  • Be able to understand various time management techniques and how they fit together.

  • Be able to create your own productivity system that fits your personal style and way of living - this will help you live your own way, instead of copying others and waste your time on things that won’t work.


You will also:

  • Be much more focused and feel better work satisfaction.

  • Have much better prioritization skills and more easily say “no” to less important things.

  • Spend less time on distractions, social media, multitasking.


This course is for professionals who want to organize the chaos, have better work satisfaction, while having more time for family, friends, hobby, development and relax.

This course is not for highly organized people, that successfully implemented GTD - they need an advanced course. This course is also not for people who hate organizing because we will have to give some structure to our tasks and projects. If you hate organizing, you will quickly get tired.


Who this course is for:
  • Professionals who want to organize the chaos, work more effectively and have better work satisfaction.
  • Professionals willing to improve their work-life balance - having more time for family, friends, hobby, development and relax.
  • Anyone who wants to organize knowledge and see the big picture of time management techniques.
  • Leaders willing to manage their teams better.
