Productivity is - to many - a mythical unicorn that is both elusive and difficult to keep once captured. As this course will show you, though, it doesn't have to be this way. Finding ways to make the most out of your days can be as easy as creating habits that set you up for long-term success. Planning. Saying No. Working Where You Are Inspired. These are just a few of the ways you can dramatically alter your workflow and reclaim minutes or even hours for each day.

I created this course for people that are new to re-framing their days for increased productivity. While anyone can benefit from these lectures, those just starting their search for a better workflow will be most impacted.

With real-world examples of how I have built a successful business using these productivity principles, you will walk away from this course with easy-to-implement nuggets of wisdom that can instantly transform the way you work and live.

Who is the target audience?
  • While everyone will benefit from learning these quick and simple techniques, this course is intended to help onramp those who have never studied time management or productivity.
  • Entrepreneurs and those who often work remotely will benefit from this course as well.

Without the proper tools for the job, simple tasks can easily take two or three times as long to complete. In this lesson, I'll show you some of the ways that I invest in the proper tools for the job to get things done with ease, speed, and more joy.

Invest in the Right Tools

Your environment will either distract or inspire you. I have found that the more I surround myself with people and atmospheres that maximize my productivity, the happier and more efficient I am. This lesson will discuss simple ways to optimize your environment.

How To Optimize Your Environment and Control Your Surroundings

Limiting your distractions can easily save you half the time it takes to finish a task. In this lesson I will show you some of the ways to stay focused while working on your vital tasks.

Limit Your Distractions

Don't be a zombie! Your body can and will fail you if you do not rest and make your health a priority. No energy means decreased productivity. Factors that play a role in energy include:

- Foods: types and portions

- Immediate gratification is not worth it

- Garbage in, garbage out

Rest and Energy

Organization is one of the easiest ways to save time. If you waste precious minutes searching for something, you will of course lose time doing the things that make you money. This lecture covers the importance of organizing things both digitally and in print or throughout your home or office.


Goal setting is a vital part of lifelong productivity.

What do you want to do? Why do you work so hard? Without measurable plans and dreams you will not know how much progress you make each month or each year. Cast the vision and then give yourself measurable milestones to achieve on the way to realizing that goal.
