2. Beautify and Enhance their computer desktop experience!

4. If done correctly, students should become clutter free in a very short period of time - with some transformations happening within a single hour!

5. Create and design a new office space!

6. Learn about Backups, Calendars and Many other Productivity Tools!

Clutter can cause massive imbalance as well as limit things from getting done! Clutter can even negatively affect your ability to focus and process information!

However clutter doesn't just stop at simply cleaning up your desktop, we need to stop the root cause and that is DISORGANIZATION without any system to help you manage things.

I was once like you, FRUSTRATED with all the mess, and as a game and app developer as well as an online instructor and motivational speaker, keeping everything organized and together was DRIVING me crazy!

Then it happened...that day where I finally said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and I spent my time to reorganize and get my life back! And now I'm here to teach you how YOU can do it too with this amazing course!  Here you will learn how to create a productive and organized office and pc system!

Some of the software being used will cost $10-$50 USD, however we will be using the free 30 day trial and free versions of the tools. For the book that is recommended it may cost you up to $15 for the book (As I'm not the author of the book, I can only provide the direct link to Amazon for the recommended book in the course). Other than that you should not have to worry about any other fees other than the course fee itself.

INSTRUCTOR INVOLVEMENT: Due to the busy schedule Abhinav has as he is developing new games and apps, speaking at seminars around the world, running his various companies, building new programs and courses, and ofcourse spending time with his family, fans and other students, etc. it will naturally be a challenge for Abhinav to be available all the time. For this reason it is highly recommended that students take advantage of any webinars or discussions which Abhinav is a part of! These are great opportunities to connect with Abhinav and ask questions about the course. Note: Please make sure your questions are related to this course when asking questions as Abhinav has several courses on various topics. If you have a question on another course or topic that Abhinav teaches that is outside the scope of this course, please ask it in that specific webinar or discussion section.


This course is aimed at beginners who may have never heard of these tools and techniques before!

The digital part of the course is for desktop and laptop users and is targeted to those who are on a PC running a Windows Operating System (Preferably Windows 7 and above. The course is taught on a Windows 8 PC). The tools and software will also work on a Mac, however all lessons and course material is shown on a Windows based PC. For more courses and programs, please take a look at Abhinav's other programs on Udemy :)

"A day well planned is a DAY WELL LIVED!", Abhinav Gupta - 2015

Success takes on many forms, from money to love to a complete balance between all areas in your life...and it's NOT EASY! However over the years I have learnt many methods, techniques and systems that have helped me to succeed time and time again to overcome many challenges, from business life to personal life and beyond! And it doesn't stop there, I'm continuously learning new things daily and teaching what I learn to the WORLD!

The greatest feeling is all the "Thank You's" I get from my students who show me that I'm able to make a difference in their lives by teaching them something that took me time to learn.

I am personally INSPIRED to bring the greatest quality I can to the creations I make, so much so, that if the Universe stopped and took a look here on our world, they would say, "You see that? That is truly the very BEST I've seen of him!" This is what I aspire to acheive every time I create a new piece of work, to be the very best ME I can be, from teaching courses to creating the next great mobile game and more! I am inspired to bring my very best to the table, and I look forward to having you do the same!

Knowledge is POTENTIAL POWER until it is applied...thats when it becomes TRUE power and can change our lives forever! For this reason I also learn daily, from reading books to even taking many Udemy courses myself and even learning new things and doing my best to apply what I've learned ALL THE TIME!

Every successful person has learned from someone else! Let us all therefore learn and teach each other so we may all succeed and pass on wisdom and knowledge from generation to generation!

Will you take part in that great vision with me? Together we can make a beautiful future together! I look forward to both teaching you and learning from you and I thank both my loyal students and my fellow instructors and teachers in life! Together we can learn, teach and grow...together we can make this world a place of greatness and hope for generations to come!

WHAT I TEACH (Major Course Categories and Areas of Expertise):
-Motivation and Inspiration
-Mobile App and Game Development
-Software and Web Development
-Business and Entrepreneurship Related Courses
-Future Areas I'm planning to teach: Music, Book Authoring, Movie creation and Directing, Investing, Health and Body
