This is a great basic tools class. Better than some classes focused just on the individual tool that I have taken elsewhere
In less than an hour, the teacher (Mike Vardy) laid out a lot of information. The implementation will take a lot longer, but it's all doable. There were a couple of "aha!" moments when I realized, "So that's why that's not working for me." Two thumbs-up.
Short and effective. Mid-way through I found myself setting up daily schedules in accordance with my shift work. Today is my first day of following through with a schedule. I would like to point out that, technically, I really don't need one but I want to fit as much into my day as possible including reading, coarses/learning, finances, etc... Theming allows for a very effective day in both physical and thought process as daily tasks are similarly related. I've downloaded Todoist but will need to play around with it to make effective use it (and if I would actually need it for my limited requirements). Either way, there's more to this course and recommend it. Lastly, love the Green Lantern ring.
