Do you feel overwhelmed?
Do you spend more time on urgent tasks than on important tasks?
Do you resort to pen and paper to plan your day? Have you tried using Things before, only to give up in frustration?
If so, you’re in the right place. In this video course, you’ll learn an Things workflow you can rely on.
How can you get there?
By learning a simple Things workflow you can trust. And that’s what you’ll learn in this self-paced video course.
“It’s only been a week since I bought Peter’s course and my life hasn’t felt this organized ever.”
If you’re not happy with the course, just let me know within 30 days of your purchase and I’ll give you a full refund. No drama, no questions asked.
The premium edition of the course comes with a 42-minute video on translating your goals into action. In this video, you’ll learn:
It’s a super actionable video: I’ll show you how I set goals and translate them into action and you can follow the exact same process, step by step.
Home tasks, work projects, being there for your friends and family, staying healthy, taking care of your finances—how do you keep track of it all?
Incoming emails rule your day. You rarely get to your most important tasks because you’re always chasing deadlines. And you feel overwhelmed.
Before you know it, you forgot to buy a birthday present for your mom, your boss is nagging you about that report that was due yesterday, and you still haven’t gotten around to filing your tax return. 🤦🏻
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Of course, you’ll learn lots of specific things too, like when you should use deadlines; how to actually reach Inbox Zero (🧘🏻); and how to never forget a birthday again ( 🥳).
You’ll learn exactly what you need—no more and no less. I’ve designed the course to be efficient, because your time is valuable.
You could piece together information on using Things from random places all over the Internet. But how long would that take? And what is that time worth to you?
When you follow this course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to organize your life and to be productive using Things. You’ll save tons on time compared to figuring things out yourself.
Think about what you could do with the extra time. You could spend it with your kids. You could spend it learning to play the guitar. Or you could, you know, spend the time doing the actual work you want to do!
That’s what learning a workflow you can trust will do for you.
“Since starting Peter’s course, I’ve cut a lot of the fat from my system and feel like I’m engaging with Things in a way that actually helps me get things done. And Peter’s Weekly Review template has been a game changer.”
“Had I not taken Peter’s course, Things 3 would be just another app on my phone. In fact the first version got used very little. I hated starting the day without a well defined agenda and the tasks I needed to get done. Now, for the first time in a long time, I’m actually starting to consider myself ‘organized.’ The spillover effect is noticeable too: organizing my office, starting a morning routine, etc.”
Hi, I’m Peter Akkies.
I first started teaching productivity courses in 2019. Today, I’ve taught thousands of paid students and hundreds of thousands of people on my YouTube channel.
I’m also into scuba diving, Formula 1, World War II history, and veganism.
“I have tried other such courses hoping to kickstart my implementation of first OF and later Things. This is the first one that I feel like I really launched and will keep going.”
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.
No, I don’t.
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.
If you get stuck or want to run something by me, just leave a comment on the relevant course lesson.
You’ll be up and running with this workflow in an afternoon or two.
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.
This course is self-paced, so you can start it whenever you like and take as long as you need.
You won’t only learn where the buttons are in Things (though that is part of the course, too). We will go beyond that: you’ll learn a simple yet effective workflow that you can use, right away, to get stuff done.
Do you have an iPad? The Things app for iPad is quite good, too!
Yes, as long as the process is not too cumbersome. Just email me.
“Peter’s course is fun, useful and has plenty of real-life practical use cases for both personal or work projects.”
“This was such a great course. I thought I knew Things 3 pretty well and just wanted a refresher. WOW! I got so much more than that. I especially appreciated understanding the ‘philosophy’ behind the Areas and When sections. I wasn’t using them effectively at all. And because of that lack of understanding, I never did a good weekly review. So much better, now. Thanks for your clarity and for the depth of this course.”
“After taking Peter’s course, I am coming into the new week with so much more clarity.”
“This is a brilliant video course for Things 3. I'm amazed how much I missed trying to learn it myself. Cultured Code should have Peter do their in-depth training.”
“I discovered more reliability in the software system. Learned about the unique features of Things 3 that make it stand out. Discovered a simpler system to track tasks and projects. And I discovered more confidence in ‘my’ process with a task manager versus the expectation of the app to do it for me.”
“Peter’s course completely changed my perspective on how to use Things 3. Nothing comes close to this course in quality and practicality.”
“I was surprised by how many things I learned about Things 3 even though I had been using it on and off for years, and following GTD much longer! The pacing of the course felt really natural, more so than GTD books or websites that I’ve read in the past.”
“I like Peter’s short, clear videos that give all the necessary information. It’s a very practical course!”
“I liked the clarity of the presentation, the relative brevity of the content and the instant and helpful interaction of Peter concerning questions and feedback in general. Very much appreciated!”
“Peter’s Things 3 course is really good. I like the quality of the recordings; the possibility of activating the subtitles and having transcripts of the videos; and the fact that the course stays up to date with new videos.”
“Peter’s course is so much more than just a simple ‘How-to set it up’ - he takes you through a workflow. If I had just downloaded Things and started using it, I wouldn’t have been as organized or had a process like I do now having taken Peter’s course - and I would have quickly fallen off of using the app.”
“Peter’s course did more than just list the features of Things 3. It taught me how one uses and organizes one’s projects and task lists. Even if I end up using different task manager, I will still consider this course worthwhile, as the principles it taught went beyond one task manager.”
“Peter’s course accelerated my ramp up on switching from OmniFocus to Things since I didn't have to learn by trial and error.”
“I’m recommending Peter’s course to all my friends. This will help them feel peaceful and stay on track with their tasks.”
“Peter has an excellent ability to convey valuable knowledge of Thing 3 in a simple and understandable way. I found new motivation to integrate Things 3 even more intensively into my daily workflow and to restructure it.”
“After taking Peter’s course, my workflow is perfectly organized and I feel that I dominate the tool.”
“I switched from OmniFocus to Things 3. I don’t feel overwhelmed anymore. OmniFocus was harder to use and less attractive/fun. And that was the reason why I nearly stopped using it recent months.”
“Peter’s ability to transfer his project management skills in a clear and understandable manner with this simple tool is exceptional.”
“This course is a breakthrough for me unlike anything I've tried before.”
