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 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 access to the Big-Picture Productivity community, which is a small discussion forum. In the community, you can connect with others, share knowledge, and maintain a progress log for accountability. I maintain my own progress log there, too!
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.
A few years ago, I wrote a blog post on how I used my task manager. That post blew up. So I decided to teach productivity in a more structured way. Today, I’ve taught over 1,000 happy students.
I’ve been featured several times on The Sweet Setup and on the popular YouTube channel Keep Productive.
I’m also into scuba diving, Formula 1, the Philadelphia Eagles, 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.
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.
I won’t waste your time teaching you obvious basics, such as how to install Things or how to sync Things between your devices. Instead, I’ll teach you a simple 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!
“Peter’s course is fun, useful and has plenty of real-life practical use cases for both personal or work projects.”
“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.”
“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!”
“Without Things, I would probably be hiding from all of my projects right now. How did I ever get anything done without it? Thanks love!”
“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 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 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.”
“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.”
Reviewing your projects is a crucial part of staying organized and getting stuff done. This cheat sheet teaches you the nine-step process that I use to do weekly reviews in Things. Get the cheat sheet.
