Course Description

You can probably count on one hand the number of times you’ve had a deeply productive day. Whether it’s endless meetings, unending emails, or clients requesting "quick chats," your productivity likely gets derailed multiple times a day.


That's where time blocking comes into play. Time blocking is the practice of planning out every moment of your day in advance and dedicating specific time “blocks” for certain tasks and responsibilities.


In this course, you'll learn how and why your calendar is the best way to tackle your daily to-do’s and achieve peak productivity. We’ll also discuss why things like traditional to-do lists and apps often fail.


"Calendars fit time management like a glove. You only need to choose the right size."


2021 update: Now includes calendar apps for time management.


WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR:

  • Busy parents

  • Freelancers who juggle multiple clients

  • Employees who struggle to get their work done each day

  • Anyone who's tired of saying "If only I had more time."


BY THE END OF THIS COURSE:

Your calendar will look like a glorious rainbow of productivity, but you deserve it! You deserve to actually get stuff done and tackle the projects that keep getting put on the back-burner, just like you deserve to fully disconnect and be guilt-free and present when you're hanging out with friends or family (or just watching Netflix as you soak in a glorious bubble bath).


So schedule some time (hint hint) to take this Udemy course and start tackling your to-do's like an efficiency machine!


MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

I'm Erin, I've been a busy freelancer and business owner since 2012. At one point in my career, I was balancing 18 full-time clients who all equally demanded a lot of my attention. I was able to successfully balance everyone (and still find time for myself and my mental sanity) through time-blocking. Deep pockets of thinking transformed business, and I was shocked that the only tool I needed in order to achieve peak-productivity was my calendar. I hope you join me in this fast, simple, but powerful course to time blocking!

Who this course is for:

  • Busy parents.
  • Freelancers who juggle multiple clients.
  • Employees who struggle to get their work done each day.
  • Anyone who's tired of saying "If only I had more time!"
