Are you working longer hours, but not really checking much off your to-do list? Or maybe you’re getting a lot of things done, but feel they never seem to really add up to anything big or important? If this sounds familiar, then you might need to watch this course. In this course, Staying Organized to Improve Productivity, you are going to be looking at how three aspects of your world—your physical space, your various projects, and your personal life—intersect to help form who you are, shape your priorities, and guide how you make your day-to-day decisions. First, you will learn how to maximize your workspace productivity. Next, you will explore how to optimize your project organization. Finally, you will discover how to organize your personal life. When you are finished with this course, you should have a better understanding of yourself and what areas of your projects, tools, workspace, and priorities to focus on optimizing.
