We are all so busy that having a task management system can sometimes feel overwhelming and cumbersome. In this class we'll learn how a good task management system can actually

  • Reduce your overwhelm
  • Decrease your overall stress
  • Keep your time aligned to your values
  • Help you say no.

Not to mention the benefits we all know. Task management helps you:

  • Meet your deadlines
  • Accomplish your goals
  • Be more productive.

We'll cover the psychological benefits of task management, the basics of a simplified version of the Getting Things Done (GTD) task management system and I'll show you a few tools to get your started! You will leave with concrete steps to take back control of your time!
