Organize Your Life
with Apple Notes

Enroll now

You deal with so much information every day.

But it’s all over the place: in your email, in chat apps, on paper—and, of course, in your head.

Much of that information is important. You’ll need those notes, those documents, and those thoughts later. So you need to put them somewhere you can find them.

Fortunately, you can organize all this information with surprisingly little effort. You don’t need to spend weeks learning a complicated method. You just need an app that’s already installed on your devices—Apple Notes—and you need a simple system.

That’s where this course comes in.

Use Apple Notes the right way and you’ll be more organized and more productive.

Learn a simple yet powerful system you can rely on. With real examples and a friendly instructor.
Apple Notes can do a lot more than you think!
Matt Safaii, Web Developer
“I’ve been using Apple Notes for a long time but never realized how powerful it really is. Your course made it so much better for me while keeping it simple at the same time!”

30-day money-back guarantee

“I learned many useful tips to coordinate my notes and an effective workflow that ties in with other apps I use.”

Your instructor:

Hi, I’m Peter Akkies

After graduating from a top college (Swarthmore, for the curious), I went to work in litigation consulting. I faced a never-ending to-do list and was always involved in many projects simultaneously. I didn’t have much free time.

After a few years, I decided to quit and start my own business. I soon began to teach people how to use task management apps to organize their lives, the way I wished I had when I worked in consulting.

These days, I can’t imagine my life without my to-do system. And I use what I learned as a consultant and in running my own business to help people like you get more organized. I’ll show you how to use the right workflows and systems to be more productive, and feel less overwhelmed.

For an introduction to my productivity philosophy, listen to my appearance on the popular Modern Wisdom podcast, episode 660 (Spotify, YouTube). You can also read more about me or listen to me tell my story on my own (former) podcast.

Anyway, shall we get started?

What people say about my Apple Notes videos:

Frequently-asked questions

What support can I get?

If you get stuck or want to run something by me, just leave a comment on the relevant course lesson.

What’s your refund policy?

If you’re not happy, just email me and ask for your money back within 30 days of your purchase. I’ll refund the full amount, no questions asked.

Do you offer a payment plan?

No, I don’t.

Do you offer any discounts?

No, I don’t. You can, however, buy this course as part of a bundle, at a lower price than if you were to purchase the courses separately.

How much time does the course take to complete?

The course consists of ten lessons and a few bonuses. I designed it to be very efficient, so you can complete it in one or two afternoons.

How long will I have access to the course?

Forever! Other sites may require you to keep a monthly subscription, but for this course, you pay once and you get lifetime access. You’ll also have access to course updates and new lessons.

Can I take the course on mobile?

Yes, you can take the course on iPhone with the Teachable app. On iPad, you can take the web version in Safari, which looks great on iPad.

When does the course start and finish?

This course is self-paced, so you can start it whenever you like and take as long as you need.

I’ve already bought another course on Notes. How is this course different?

You won’t only learn where the buttons are in Notes (though that is part of the course, too). We will go beyond that: you’ll learn a simple yet effective system that you can use right away to organize your thoughts and materials.

Does the course require any specific devices?

You need an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac. That’s it. (In the videos, I switch back and forth between iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. Apple Notes works about the same on each platform.)

There are a few features in Notes that do not work on older iDevices, but that does not impact the overall system you’ll learn.

What if I need to use a Windows PC at work?

You can access your notes on, although features are limited on the web version.

What languages are available for video subtitles?

Arabic, Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. If you need them in a different language, ask me. I might be able to add them; it depends on whether the course platform supports your language.

Can I buy bulk licenses for my team?

Yes, just email me.

Okay, you ran out of web page…

Go with your gut!
