Who doesn’t love a productivity hack? The start of a new year is a good reminder to take inventory of what’s working and what’s not, and put systems in practice to keep you focused on your goals. Getting organized and keeping productivity top-of-mind doesn’t necessarily mean you’re working 24/7; in fact, it means you’re being more efficient when you do work so you have plenty of time to explore creative pursuits, extracurricular activities, or simply rest and do nothing at all. We’ve curated a list of Skillshare classes and content to help get you organized in 2022.
