This course helps you gain productivity by learning time management and prioritization techniques and systems that you can actually use. Learn easy-to-implement ideas and concepts to change how, and even when, you work.
In this course, we talk about concepts and techniques of time management and prioritization, with the goal of increasing individual (and even team) productivity. We start with a good introduction to time management that helps us understand how to feel more in-control of our time and projects. Then, we talk about where we should spend our time, and how we can avoid doing things that are distracting us from our main priorities. When you implement even one of the many ideas from this course, you should see a considerable change in your productivity, and be on the path for more productivity enhancements.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Jason Alba. Welcome to my course Prioritizing Tasks and Managing Time for Greater Productivity. I run a website called jibberjobber. com, which is a software as a service model for job seekers and people who are passionate about networking. We're all interested in being a little more productive, right? Why is it that we try things to make us productive, but within a few weeks we're back to our same old habits? That's one of the challenges that we're going to address in this course. We'll talk about tactics to manage your time, tactics that you can really implement and actually use. We'll talk about prioritizing your tasks so that you are working on the most important highest return tasks first and moving away from working on things that you really shouldn't work on. The end result of these tactics is higher productivity. Implementing some of these tactics might give you marginal productivity improvements, but I've seen some of these tactics greatly increase the productivity of many people. By the end of this course, you'll know what you can do to greatly increase your own productivity. From there, continue your learning by diving into other soft skill courses like Becoming a Better Listener and How to Get Your Next Promotion. I hope you'll join me on this journey of improving your career and your productivity with the Prioritizing Tasks and Managing Time for Greater Productivity course at Pluralsight.
