- Let me ask you a question. What do you spend your day doing? I've asked thousands of people that question. What surprised me was not the uniqueness of the answers I got, but the absolute consistency of them. No matter who I was speaking with, the answers were always exactly the same: Meetings and emails. How can we possibly get ahead and be successful if we're spending our time doing mundane tasks? I'm Lisa Bodell, and for over 20 years I have taught people how to eliminate the complexity that holds them back from doing what they're good at and give them simple techniques that let them get to the work that matters.
See, I believe that productivity isn't about doing more on your to-do list. It's about ensuring what's on your to-do list is worth your time in the first place. If you're like most people you work hard and you do a lot during the day. You're busy, but when the day's over you feel exhausted and not sure you accomplished a heck of a lot. And that stops now. In this course I'll show you how to eliminate complexity and the mundane work that takes up so much of your time unnecessarily. You'll learn how to identify low-value tasks, eliminate redundancies, and make simplification a habit.
And you'll see how to quickly recognize which activities are time wasters and which ones create lasting value. Isn't it time you eliminated low-value work to be more productive? You'll feel less overwhelmed, more empowered, and able to spend each day doing things that matter.
