Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Maintaining your productivity gains, part of Time Management Fundamentals.
- Congratulations on completing the time management fundamentals course. We've covered the program my clients have found invaluable to get the most from their time, and my hope is that you'll now experience the same benefit. My goal in this course was to introduce you to the principles of successful time management and productivity while not necessarily diving into specific software or tools. As long as you live correct principles, almost any product can work for you.
If you're interested in getting help with specific software programs or tools, there are courses on this site to help you master them. I recommend that you complete the specific courses for the software programs and products you intend to use for time management. Learning how to better utilize your chosen tools will maximize your chance of success, especially now that I've shown you the flexible fundamentals of time management. Also, I'd recommend that you create an action item for yourself to review the videos in this time management course every three months or so.
We all get caught up in the chaos of working day to day, and are understanding of even the most basic principles will fade over time. By reviewing these videos regularly, you'll increase the likelihood of your consistent success with time management. If you have specific questions about anything you learned here, you're welcome to visit davecrenshaw.com . Go to my blog and ask questions in the comment section.
I process and respond to all questions on my blog weekly. Thank you for allowing me to share these principles with you, and may you continue to be even more productive in the coming weeks and months.
Learn how to get more done in the shortest time possible and avoid the obstacles and distractions that can get in the way of good time management. Dave gives practical strategies for increasing productivity in three main areas: developing habits to be more organized and reducing clutter in your workspace; staying mentally on task and eliminate the to-dos you have floating in your head; and developing a time budget to get the most done during your workday and focus on your most valuable activities.
