In this class we will walk through using the free application Wunderlist 3 for guiding highly productive behavior. Wunderlist 3 is available for Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Android, and as a web utility.
This is not just an "app class" - in addition to learning the application, we will highlight tips and tricks that I've learned through years of freelancing and working on multiple projects at once.
Keeping a detailed task list doesn't need to be a bother: you can turn it into a joy and a reward. Join me in this fun and exciting class!

In this video we review some things about the program we will be using, Wunderlist 3.
We can work in Wunderlist in 3 different views, each of which has a time and place. In this video we quickly explore each of the three views.
It is time to build our main lists. We will put items in them later. For now we just need the main list of lists.
Sometimes we need to collaborate with others on projects, and Wunderlist gives us a great solution for that.
A few tips on creating lists. These are lists that I've found to be really useful to my workflow.
"Smart Lists" are lists that populate by themselves with items. Wunderlist 3 comes with a handful of them for us to use.
Finally we are all set up, and we can start adding our items!
Each item has a list of options that we can use if we want. In this video we review them and show you how to use them.
Recurring items happen every day, week, month, or year. In this video we talk about how to set them up, and I show you some examples for uses of this.
Pro Tip: A trick to keep you productive throughout the day.
Sometimes life just gets away from you, and you need to reboot. Here is my technique for getting back on track.
Thats it! Some parting thoughts and then you are on your own to be highly productive!
Its always good to look at another perspective. I've showed you how I use this, not lets get a quick look at someone else's approach.
There is so much more to learn!
