Feeling overwhelmed? Not as productive as you could be?

If you wish you could use Todoist to get organized, but you haven’t found a system that works for you, you’re in the right place.

In this video course, you’ll learn a Todoist workflow you can rely on.

Picture this:

  • You feel less stressed because your to-dos and projects are under control.
  • You’re more consistent and reliable because you don’t miss deadlines.
  • You feel proud because you’re doing your most important work.
  • You’ve got a great overview, so you know exactly what to work on next.
  • And nothing slips through the cracks.

Let’s make that happen for you.

Learn a simple workflow you can trust. With real examples and a friendly instructor.

“I just finished Module 1, Capturing your To-Dos, and I already feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth from the course.

It’s not just the actionable 1-2-3 steps that Peter gives you, it’s the clearly laid out process that has re-grounded my thinking about how to be more productive.”
Ready to take control of your to-dos?

You have lots of responsibilities—and that’s okay.

Tasks at home. Projects at work. Being there for your friends and family. Staying healthy. Taking care of your finances. It’s a lot.

It’s a lot, but it’s manageable with the right system.

With the right system, you can stay on top of your email. You can consistently get around to your most important tasks. And you can meet your deadlines.

Todoist can be a great foundation of that system—if you set it up right. And that’s where this course comes in.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • get your tasks from everywhere else (email, websites, Slack/Teams…) into Todoist
  • organize your tasks and projects
  • plan your day and your week
  • filter your tasks so you can find the ones that are relevant right now
  • save time with repeating tasks and project templates
  • execute the #1 most important productivity habit: the weekly review
  • make Todoist work with the apps you already use

Of course, you’ll learn lots of Todoist-specific things too, like how dates work, how to use the various types of projects, how to use Focus Mode to concentrate on specific parts of your life, and more.

Your time is valuable.

You’ll learn exactly what you need—no more and no less. I’ve designed the course to be as efficient as possibly.

You could piece together information on using Todoist from random places all over the Internet. But how long would that take? And what is your 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 Todoist. 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!

After completing the course, you’ll:

  • be able to focus better,
  • feel more in control,
  • know exactly what to work on next,
  • save time,
  • and have a productivity system that ensures nothing slips through the cracks.

That’s what learning a Todoist workflow you can trust will do for you.

“I loved learning more about Todoist’s features, and more importantly the concept of a weekly review. I've toyed with this in the past, but struggled with a format. Peter’s makes so much sense to me.
Each video lesson comes with English captions and subtitles in many languages.

You can also choose to get personal feedback from me on your Todoist setup. Here’s how that works:

  1. You enroll in the personal feedback edition of the course.
  2. Within 4 weeks of enrolling, you send me screenshots or a short video (< 5 minutes) of your Todoist setup.
  3. Within 2 weeks of receiving that, I send you back a personal video with my feedback on your setup, including actionable steps for you to get even more out of Todoist.

If you’d like to get your Todoist workflow dialed in as quickly as possible, choose the personal feedback option.

Capturing Your To-Dos

The foundation of organizing your life and getting stuff done is capturing your to-dos. We’ll start by making that really easy.

  • Understanding the Todoist Interface
  • Getting your to-dos out of your head and into Todoist
  • Creating tasks from outside of Todoist
  • Processing your email with Todoist

Organizing Your To-Dos

Your task manager gets way more powerful—and your mind gets clearer—when you organize your to-dos into areas and projects. So that’s what we’ll work on next.

  • Organizing your life into areas to quickly view related tasks
  • Structuring your to-dos with projects (and how to use projects in Todoist)
  • Labeling (aka tagging) your to-dos to track different types of tasks
  • Keeping projects un-cluttered

Planning Today & Planning Ahead

The secret to being productive is to clearly prioritize your days and to plan ahead. We’ll cover how to do that with Todoist.

  • How to use due dates
  • Working with repeating tasks
  • Setting up reminders, including location-based reminders
  • Prioritizing your tasks
  • Planning for a productive day
  • Making sure nothing slips through the cracks with weekly reviews

Integrating Todoist Into Your Workflows

One of Todoist’s great strengths is that it works well with the other apps you already use. So we’ll set up some integrations.

  • Getting clear on what belongs in Todoist (so we keep your to-do list tidy)
  • Integrating Todoist with your calendar
  • Working with Todoist’s own calendar view
  • Time blocking with Todoist
  • Using Todoist widgets on your phone
  • Working with Todoist extensions & integrations

  • Creating filters (aka custom views) to view your to-dos just the way you want
  • Creating filters (aka custom views) to view your to-dos just the way you want

Using Todoist to Collaborate with Others (Workspaces)

Todoist allows you to share tasks and projects with others in personal projects (e.g. with your spouse) or at work. You’ll learn how to track to-dos from any part of your life, while keeping work and home separate when you want to focus.

  • Sharing personal projects and to-dos
  • Setting up team workspaces and managing members
  • Using workspaces to collaborate with colleagues
  • Keeping your personal and work tasks organized in Todoist

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?

This course is for you if you:

  • feel overwhelmed
  • need to organize your to-dos and projects
  • find that things are slipping through the cracks
  • are unhappy with your current task manager, or…
  • have tried Todoist, but it hasn’t stuck

This course is not for you if:

  • You’re looking for a magic solution that requires zero effort.
  • You’d rather figure everything out yourself, from scratch. (You can, but it’ll take you much longer.)
  • You already know everything there is to know about Todoist!
Joe Gerardi
“Peter’s course is easy to follow but still comprehensive. The speed is very good—not too slow.”

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.

You’ll be up and running with this workflow in an afternoon or two.

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

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.

Not convinced? Get my Todoist cheat sheet.

Todoist looks like a really simple app, but it has lots of powerful features. They’re just not immediately visible at first glance. And some features, like using filters to slice and dice your data, require a bit of learning to use. So I made a cheat sheet to help you out. Get the cheat sheet.
