Not on track to reach your goals?

Video course: Big-Picture Productivity

Achieve your goals. make your dreams your reality.

Does this sound like you?

You work hard, but your goals stay out of reach. Despite your best efforts, your dreams are not becoming your reality.

You’re busy, but you keep postponing your long-term plans. There’s barely enough time for your day-to-day obligations, let alone to pursue those big goals.

Your task list keeps expanding. It’s difficult to focus on the big picture, because you’re constantly putting out fires. You want to do too much and you’re always jumping from one thing to the next.

If that sounds like you… what if you could change all that?

Sharon Wong
“After so many years of trying, I finally have a good framework in place for planning my life on a recurring basis. More importantly, I also understand the principles behind the framework. I’ll be able to make adjustments when my life needs change in the future.”

Imagine this:

  • You’ve formulated razor-sharp goals
  • You’re consistently making progress on those goals
  • You’re prioritizing your long-term plans
  • You’re also on top of your day-to-day obligations
  • You do more of what truly matters, in less time

Sounds nice, right? That’s what enrolling in Big-Picture Productivity will do for you.

Joel Clermont
“BPP significantly changed my viewpoint of productivity. I no longer obsess over getting the most tasks done, but I feel a much deeper sense of purpose and satisfaction as I complete tasks in key projects that help me reach my bigger goals.”

Premium Edition: get personal feedback

If you enroll in the premium edition of the course, you’ll get a one-time video review of your goals and your key action steps from me.

For example, I might:

Here’s how the video review works:

  1. You create your list of goals and your list of key action steps for those goals, following the course method.
  2. You email me your list in a text format. For example, share a Google Doc. (Make sure to set it so I can access it.)
  3. I will record a video with my feedback and send you a private link to watch that video. (I’ll do this within a week, unless I’m on vacation—then I’ll do it as soon as I get back.)

You can get my feedback within the first three months after you enroll in the course. This offer is only valid if you immediately purchase the premium edition; you can’t upgrade later.

“After taking Big-Picture Productivity, I realised that I had far more control over my own goals and schedule than I thought. I learned how to translate my goals into actionable tasks. And the worksheets are a gold mine!”

J.P. Martin
“BPP allows you to know that you are making progress toward a goal, rather than grinding through another quarter and being able to say ‘I made it’ but without having navigated meaningfully in any particular direction, or being able to tick a proper, well-defined goal off of the list.”

Our secret weapon: the course workbook

The course’s 40+ lessons contain plenty of insights and methods. But those alone won’t get you results. That’s why almost every lesson comes with an exercise in the course workbook.

The workbook exercises are your ticket to getting results fast. Here are some of the things we’ll do in the workbook exercises:

  • Organize your life into different areas
  • Formulate razor-sharp goals
  • Create actionable steps for your goals
  • Identify your most valuable, “deep” work
  • Design a schedule that works for you
  • Plan for a successful quarter
  • Define “good enough” versions of your work (to avoid procrastination-by-perfectionism)
  • Make healthy, productive habits stick
  • Set up project templates to save time

These exercises will help you immediately, but are also perfect for coming back to later, if you need to re-focus on your top priorities.

“The coursework was grueling. And I mean that in the best possible way. To this day, I have printed copies of select BPP pages on my desk.”

This course is for you if:

  • You aren’t making (enough) progress on your goals
  • You’re tired of postponing your dreams
  • You want to focus on what really matters
  • You want this to be your most productive year ever

This course is not for you if:

  • You’re looking for a magic solution that requires zero effort
  • You just want to kick the tires on the course without putting in the work
  • You’re not willing to invest time in setting yourself up for long-term success
  • You’re not up for trying a new method

Frequently asked questions

Q: What’s your refund policy?

If you’re not happy with the course, just let me know within 30 days of your purchase; I’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.

Q: Do you offer a payment plan?

I do not offer a payment plan. I love to support my students, but I don’t want to establish a creditor-debtor relationship with you.

Q: Can I get a discount?

There is a launch week discount. Other than that, I do not offer discounts.

Q: Do I need to use specific apps?

No, you don’t need to use any specific apps.

Q: 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.

Q: Didn’t you offer this as a live course?

I did run Big-Picture Productivity as a live course in early 2021. I might do so again in the future. For now, though, I wanted to make the material accessible as a self-paced video course.

Q: How long will I have access to the course materials?

Forever! You’ll also have access to course updates and new lessons.

Q: What support can I get?

If you have a question or would like to get my feedback on something, just leave a comment on the relevant course lesson. That way, other students can also benefit from my answers. If you’d rather get my thoughts privately, you can email me at peter@peterakkies.net. I usually reply within a day or two.

Q: Do I need to have taken your other courses?

No, you don’t need to have taken any of my other courses.

If you have already taken one of my other courses, you’ll find that this course includes some familiar concepts related to task management, but that we take a big-picture approach. Task management remains the foundation, but we’ll go way beyond that to make this your most productive year ever.

Don’t postpone your dreams any longer

I urge you to jump in the deep end. If you’re not doing what really matters, don’t stay stuck in that position. Don’t go another year without prioritizing your goals or dreams. Commit to them: enroll now.

What Students say…

Here’s what students have said about my other courses:
Kirill Eremenko headshot
Kirill Eremenko
“Peter’s course is life-changing. He has a vision: ‘I want you to be productive, but not overwhelmed’. And it shows throughout the course that he cares.”
Violet Pidgorna
“I went from 50% productivity to 1000%. I finished my 2 University courses this August with A and A+ and at the same time launched 2 new products while still maintaining my business and its current products, all in one month!”
Paul Christy
“Managing 500 employees and a $40 million budget means I have a lot of projects and tasks. Thanks to Peter’s course I’m starting the week super-charged with my schedule and tasks lined up.”
Ashley Albeck
“Thank you so much!!! I am so excited to use OmniFocus! Your lessons were super easy to follow and you were amazing at teaching in detail but without making me feel dumb! Thank you!”
Robin Melancon
“Peter’s course was perfect for what I was looking to do! I was letting all the due dates sit and wasn’t sure what to focus on NEXT. Having a refresher was what I needed!”
Max Jimenez
“It’s only been a week since I bought Peter’s course and my life hasn’t felt this organized ever.”
Paul Everitt
“Peter’s course illustrated not just the OmniFocus Zen that I knew was there, but several other seriously impactful ways to work. Worth every penny. Exceptionally valuable.”
Nicki Lock
“I’m gaining more and more control of OmniFocus (and as a result, my days and my energy) after each lesson. In less than a week, I’m feeling more in control. And that’s after only getting through the first three sections of the course!”
Mark Hayes
“Peter’s course brought a couple of breakthrough moments for me that were quite literally life changing. I know that sounds dramatic, but when everything you do stems from this workflow system, and someone removes a clog from your system, it really is life changing.”
Angela Marshall
“After taking Peter’s course, I am coming into the new week with so much more clarity.”
Joakim Östlind
“I wish all my colleagues would take Peter’s course. Everyone can learn something and my life would be a lot easier if everyone around me was as organized as I am now 😁”
Neil Maxwell-Keys
“I’m massively more organised. I’d stopped using OmniFocus; it became a long list of tasks that was completely overwhelming. Peter’s course has brought organisation and structure to my life.”
