Do highly productive people have some innate skill that others do not? Or do people become productive because of their choices and actions? This course teaches that anyone can be productive if they choose to be – and follow it up with action. People tend to become less productive when faced with major projects, often feeling overwhelmed or unable to complete what's required of them.

This course examines task management and 'chunking' and how they can help workloads seem much less overwhelming. It also looks at how to determine which are priority tasks and which are nonessential as well as examining the importance of scheduling and detailing schedule items using a to-do list. Taking time to create a schedule at the start will save you time and energy in the long run and knowing how to properly use a to-do list can help maximise personal productivity.
