The most essential learnings in life come from Failure. 

The classes below are a result of some of my epic failures and the lessons I have learned from them. 

I used to fail in Business and Investing and so I mastered ACCOUNTING & FINANCE to change that. 

I learned that 'Revenue' is the most important metric in Business so I learned MARKETING to change that. 

I learned Time is as important as money and so I learned PRODUCTIVITY hacks to maximize it. 

Having my fundamentals of Accounting, Marketing and Productivity clear has had a BIG IMPACT on my life and I am passionate about teaching what I have learned to others.    

I hope you enjoy the classes.

1. Introduction : Ben Franklin famously quartered. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. No one enjoys being late for anything, be it a meeting, a date or your friends first dance performance. And that's where the humble calendar comes into play. For centuries, the calendar has been used to just know the date for us technology has improved. Calendars haven't remained just calendars anymore. At the forefront of the latest calendar technology are our friends at Google. First, the borders, Google Search, then Gmail. And now you won't believe the things they're up to with the Google calendar with a powerhouse off inbuilt tools such as multiple calendars, color according recurring events, reminders, notifications and so much more, the Google calendar can be used to schedule and plan everything in your life from your biggest life goals, daily dinners and even daydreaming. Now I know that you don't want to spend our strength alone, every hidden them that the Google calendar has to offer, and that's why I've created this class. This'll class will quickly get you up to speed with the foundational features of this powerful tool. As you add, once you learn tips and tricks, which will help take you from a novice toe, a productive, routine ninja. And who knows, despite how busy your schedule? Maybe today, after learning the ins and outs of the Google calendar, you may actually find sometimes gruesome day dreaming. After all. Thank you so much for watching this video. I hope to see you inside the class. 2. A Walkthrough of the Google Calendar Interface: Before you begin learning any app or software, it's always best to know what the software has to offer. Doing that will give you a good idea about all the features and help you decide for what features interests you most and what you would like to know more about. So in this lecture before it's going to take a quick walk through of the Google calendar interface. But first, let me show you how to quickly access the Google calendar well, first of all, to access the Google calendar, you need a Google account. Now, if you have access to any Google products such as Gmail, Google Drive, Google dogs or the like, you already have a Google account if you're on your laptop or desktop. When you're logged into any of the Google maps, you'll see the Google APS icon under Top right, which looks like the Sideways version off a Rubik's Cube. Once you click on that, are drop down menu appears, showing you all off their different Google maps, and you just have to find the one with the school calendar and click on that once you're inside the Google calendar. On the left hand side, you have a sidebar with several items which allow you to make changes to your main screen. This right here in the center is called the main screen. The section on the left hand side is called the main menu, and it can be expanded or contracted by clicking the three Barton's on top on top of the main menu. The first Barton is the create button. When you click the Create Barton or dialogue box opens, which allows you to add events, reminders or tasks. We're gonna get into what each of these are a bit more in the lectures that follow. So let's more onto the next thing for right now. After you have the create button, you have a monthly calendar display. While you can change the main screen toe, have any different view by using the drop down menu on the right. For example, you could change your main screen toe, have a weekly view by clicking week. You could also change your toe. Have a yearly view by clicking your the calendar in your main menu. Remain stagnant because this gives you a quick glance at your entire month or you're also able to jump dates using this particular calendar. So, for example, if I want to jump from March 28 to April 20 it I can do so by clicking on this calendar. And then I go ahead and I click day, and it's taken me April 20. Underneath this calendar, we have a search box now on this page, there to search box. There's this one. It's a search for people. And there's also a general search box right here on the general search boxes used to search for any general terms you might have added while putting on northern your Google calendar. So, for example, if I want to look for the board days in my Google calendar, I simply type. But day and I hit search, and it will show me the bodies that have previously imported into my Google calendar. The search box on the left hand side, which is the mean menu search box, is a bit different. This search box is used to see other people's calendars. Let me explain some unique features off the Google calendar. Other. You can maintain multiple calendars for yourself as well as you can share your own calendar with other people as well as have them share their calendars with you. The search box on the main menu deals with the sharing of calendars with other people. So let's say you work in an organization which has 20 people, and one of them is named Bob and his email ideas. Barber it x y z dot com. You can type Bob at X, Y Z or common this calendar, provided it's a shared calendar, and you will be able to see Bob's calendar on your screen. Since this is an individual calendar, there's no search box appearing right here. But let me show you one calendar, which I have, which is shared with multiple people. So let me take you to another calendar. So I've taken you into this new calendar, which is one of my work calendars. Since this calendar can be accessed by multiple people as well as market, people can access my own calendar. I can simply type the name of the person in the search box right here, and once I click on it, his calendar will show up right here as well. So off course setting and seeing calendars can be personalized by going into the settings. Borten, which is located right here on top, and we're gonna talk about personalizing settings based on your preferences in some of the upcoming lectures. For now, let's move on with the next section in the main menu. Let me go back underneath the search books. We have a section quarter mike at dinners, and here's what's unique about this. Apart from the default calendars that Google gives you, which are these ones, you can set up multiple calendars for yourself. So, for example, if you want to spend 10 hours of EQ on a side hustle but want a separate side social calendar for maybe your privacy reasons, you can set up a calendar core Sinus, where you can add appointments and events related to your side. Hustle, and you can make that calendar appear or disappear simply by checking on checking in any of these pardons. Finally, in the main menu. Another feature of interest is that you can add more generic calendars, the calendars, which you already have. So, for example, I could click this plus Barton and I could browse other calendars of interest, which will give me calendar such as calendars and Christian holidays. Jewish holidays, Muslim holidays, etcetera. It also has options for sports calendars and other calendars. Okay, well, so that was a quick walk through off everything on the Google calendar interface. More Google calendar Goodness coming up in the next lecture. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture. And I will see you in the next one. 3. Events, Reminders and Tasks: setting up a time to do something in the Google calendar is pretty easy, but just doing that is not the goal of this course. The goal of this course is to take your productivity to the next level, and that involves you having a complete understanding off the different types off apartments you can set. The Google calendar allows you to set three types of appointments, events, reminders and tasks. The commonality and the difference between these three types of appointments lies with one thing dying. Let me explain and give you some examples of these so that you get a good grasp of what I'm talking about. The easiest way to understand an event is to simply think off attending something at a specified time. So if it's a meeting with your boss at four PM or a meeting with the staff member at six PM or it might be your date for catching a flight, such as a flight to New Yorker to am these all fall under the event category. Next, we have water called reminders, which are a bit more basic than events. As you've probably figured out from the name itself. Reminders are set when you want to be reminded about things. So, for example, if you want to go to the gym on Thursday evening at 6 p.m. While that would be considered an event, you might add a reminder for Wednesday evening to get your gym gear ready or day before so that you take it to work the next day. Reminders are Basic Party worked pretty well, especially as a supplement to events last but not least in appointment. Hierarchy come tasks. Think of tasks like items on our to do list. Tasks are usually notice time sensitive, but you have to get them completed. So, for example, cleaning your Gmail inbox, cleaning your car or doing your laundry are typical task. Start with the added toward cruellest. As you can see from these examples, tasks have a loose boundary of time, as in, they need to be completed. But there's no order in action required on any of these. So I hope you got some clarity on the difference between events, reminders and tasks. In the next lecture, I'll show you how to set them up. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture and I will see you in the next one 4. Creating an Event : There are two ways to add an event on your Google calendar. Based on if your event is a one time appointment or a recurring event, let me walk you through boot. Let's say you have a meeting with your friend Joy for lunch. Appear Chang's tomorrow at two PM and lets it. Tomorrow is April 4th 2020 which is a Saturday, Since this event is pretty straightforward, can simply pick the time in your calendar. Now I prefer using the four day view, but you can use the drop down menu and select a Daily view Weekly view monthly view. And so So I'm just gonna go ahead on Saturday the fourth and find 2 p.m. and click right there in the title. I would write something like lunch with Make sure you have the event tap selected. You can click on any of the boxes below to change the date. Order time. We're gonna leave this, as is now. If Joey's part off your Google contacts, you can add his email. I d. Right there and you can select it and we'll come up. I'm gonna leave it blank for now, but I'll give you a slightly at one step before we move on. If you're using G suite and your organization, typing the email off your coworkers in this box who are also using G suite will bring up for Barton, where you can see their calendar and appointment availability once you add their email, i d. If you go ahead and certain appointment with them, you'll also be Schoener Dialog box that asks you if you want to send them a notification off the appointment that has just been scheduled. If you're not using these wheat dough and using the Google calendar just proportional use nobody too much about what I just said. Next, you can add the location off your appointment, adding the location is going to make it easier for you. Don't on Google maps should you want another directions to your destination of the scheduled time. If your appointment is not in portion and you're setting up a virtual appointment, you can click on the conferencing feature, which is gonna be useful if you're using Google hangouts for those off you not familiar Google hangouts? It's a video and voice called up. Next we have their description box. Now you can add whatever description you would like in the description section, but this may not be as applicable for you for a lunch appointment with your friend Joey, but it's definitely a useful feature in the office. If you're sharing a Google calendar with your colleagues, toe right, the gender for meeting so that all the people attending the meeting know what preparation needs to be done prior to the meeting and work points need to get covered. And lastly, in our quick appointment set up, we have this drop down Barton where we can select any off our other calendars. With we've set up, I usually select the calendar, which is closest to the type of appointment that I have. So, for example, my lunch with joy would likely go on my relationships calendar. But if this was a gym appointment, I would select health. Or if this was a freelancer born print, then I would likely select side herself. But for most of you, I don't think you'll need so many calendars, and I think just a few calendars with suffice as well as you can see, I don't have much of a life, and I geek out and spend my time on productivity hacks such as creating multiple calendars . Once you're done, select the calendar of your choice and click safe, and there we go. I lunch with Joey has been set up for 2 p.m. If you think you're gonna be spending more time a jury, let's say insert off 1/2 in our lunch you will be meeting him for one are you can simply click unless go ahead and click the edit button and make the time built. Three PM and once you click Save the appointment has been now made for one hour, which is half a. Now I'm gonna show you how to change their Defour timings for your appointments, using the settings Barton on top. But I leave that for later lecture. For now, let's just more so. Let's say your meeting with Joey was not a one time appointment part. You want to make your recurring event like let's say you want to meet Joy not just decided a but every Saturday for lunch to a flock. In that case, you can go back and click the appointment and once again take the edit button and scroll over to their does not repeat section. Click the drop down Barton and you'll have multiple choices here so you can select weekly on Saturday and Click Save and Your Lunch With Joy has been scheduled for Saturday, April the fourth, as well as on Saturday, April 11. To make this easier of you, I can select the month option and you'll see your recurring appointment every Saturday at 2 p.m. With joy. I'm gonna go back to my four debut, and I'll show you a few more features, which you can use. So I'm gonna go ahead and click lunch with Joy and we're clicked. The Edit Barton Once again. Now I'll highlight some other features, which are really useful, and I use them all the time. So Google allows you to set two types of notifications using this ad. Notification. Barton. Right here, you can have notifications sent either to your email, or you can also get notifications saying to you on the phone. But for that you will have to install the Google calendar app on your phone. So once you click, add notification. You can select notification by email or notification on the phone. You can also set the time you won't receive the notification. So, for example, I could set up something like Email me one de before my lunch with Joey and nor defy me 30 minutes before my lunch so that I make it on time, set up these notifications. All you would have to do next is go ahead. It's safe. But before I go ahead and do that, let me show you a couple of more features on the speech. If privacy is a concern for you, you can go ahead and use this drop down feature to make your appointments private. And finally, if you have to add multiple guests to your appointment, then you can do that using this guest Barton right here So I could add the email off the multiple people that are attending a particular meeting, perhaps, and they would all get listed right here. And once I add them, our dialogue box would appear if I would want to send them a notification that they have been added for the meeting, and I can choose to do that if I want. So for now, I'm not gonna be adding anybody, but I'm just gonna hit safe and when I hit Save. It's asking me. Founder. Every dis event, this end, the following events, all events. I'm gonna leave this dis event for now and click ok. And like the only this event has been edited and not the lunch meetings, which I'm having with joy every week. You see how easy that was? Congratulations. Now, as part of your learning, I'm going to give you an action. I want you to go ahead and set up your own appointment and practice how to do this. And after you're done else, you in the next lecture. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture. And I will see you in the next one. 5. Creating an Event directly from Gmail : when you get an email about a meeting flight concert or a restaurant reservation, you also get the Google calendar dialog box with it automatically, which allows you to add an event to your Google calendar with the simple click of a button . But instead, if you want to manually add an email to the Google calendar, there's another option. Let me show you by going toe any random email in my Gmail inbox. So I'm going to lose out from here, and I'm relieved the Google calendar site more Go and select one off my emails. So let me go ahead and select this email. You'll see a triple Barton icon on top. Click that and click Create event. Google Calendar goes ahead and creates the event for you copying the Z mail message title from your subject line, and it cause ahead and copies your email in the description box. Google Karen also automatically adds the guests in your email in the guest section on the right, and if you want to go ahead and add more guests, simply click. Add guests and you can add other guests to this particular event. Once you're done filling out these details. You can also go ahead and change the event date name. Or you can make it an all day event by clicking this button right here. Once you're done, go ahead and click Save Once you hit, Save our dialogue box opens up asking if we would like to send an invitation email to our Google calendar Guests. If you wanna continue editing your event, you conduce to dismiss the dialog box. You can choose to not send an email to a Google calendar guests or you can choose to send them one. I'm gonna leave this as don't saying for this moment, and my event has been saved in the Google calendar. So that was a pretty quick tips on how to add an event which is coming to your Gmail directly onto your Google calendar. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture and I will see you in the next one 6. Creating Reminders : in the world of time management, even though reminders fall in a slightly different place compared to events in tasks in the world of the Google calendar, creating a reminder is very similar to creating an event or a task. Let's check out how a great reminder find our date where you would like to schedule the reminder. So let's say I'm going to select April 6th 2020 and I'm going to select any Dane. Once they're dialog box opens. I'm gonna type the title so I can type something like water plants. Next, I'm gonna slick reminder from my three options with our event reminder in task. So I'm gonna select reminder right here. You can choose the date and time for your reminder, or you can select all day by checking this box. If you select all day, you'll see that your reminder appears on top part. If you uncheck already, it goes back to the specific time where you want a scheduled reminder. I'm going to leave. This is all day for right now. If you want a recurring reminder, you can use the drop down to select from any of these time frequencies, such as you can select a daily reminder of weekly reminder a monthly reminder, an annual reminder or a V Day a reminder. But I'm going to select custom the customize my remind off every Monday and Wednesday. After that, you can select when you want a reminder to end a moral Leavitt has never. But you can also select that you want your reminder to end on a certain data after a certain number of occurrences. If you want to customize this father, you can also select your reminder to repeat every one week, two weeks or three weeks. I'm gonna leave. This is one week for right now and I'm gonna go ahead and select done, and I'm gonna go ahead and to, like, save you. See my reminder appear right here. And if I want to take a look at it on the monthly view, you'll be able to see that my reminder has been scheduled on every Monday and Wednesday. I'm gonna go back to my four, Dave, you and I'm gonna show you a very handy feature when it comes to using reminders, which is that you can check the reminder off once you finish the task related to the reminder. So, for example, after I finish watering my plants just to know that I'm done for the day, I can select the water plants feature and I can check. Mark is done, and it shows up as your mind oh, marked down. You'll see that my reminder still remains on my calendar, but it's crossed out. So that way, if you ever want to see what the reminder was, you can simply click on it and we'll show you that the reminder related toe watering my plants. If you want to delete any reminders, you can click on the particular reminder and hover right next to it and hit the delete button, and the reminder will get deleted. And the final tip relating to reminders is, if you want to hide all the reminders in your calendar, simply go back to my calendars unchecked. The reminder. Barton there and all your reminders have been hidden. I'm gonna leave this on for right now. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture and I'll see you in the next one 7. Setting Up Tasks : While Google Calendar is a great scheduling software, Google decided that if it wanted to specialize in task management, it needed another tool, and they went ahead and created a separate app called Google Tasks. While Google tasks comes preinstalled Google Calendar and can be seen on the right hand side of your screen honor desktop in your mobile, it needs to be downloaded as a separate app. This is great because when you're on the run during a very busy day, you can see all your tasks. Is one handy to do list on your tasks App. But let me show you how to set up a task on your Google calendar and how it integrates with Google tasks. So let's say tomorrow is Wednesday, April 8, and I want to do my laundry at 2 p.m. So to set up a task, I simply click task right here and I add the title do laundry. I think doing laundry is pretty self explanatory, So I want our description right here, and I can select from the drop down menu one of the tasks lists. So, for example, I have a list called My Tasks. I have something called personal list. I also have a marketing must realist, whether act, tasks related to marketing and so on and so forth. One of the advantage of using Google tasks is you can create separate tasks, list for different types of tasks for doing my laundry and were delivered in my mind. Asks list, and I'm gonna go ahead and hit safe. As you can see, my task has been created. Now, if I want to go ahead and see my entire to do list, what I can do is I can go ahead and hit the tasks. Borton right here and I'll see for tomorrow. The only disaster I have is doing laundry. But when I keep adding task during the day, they will keep appearing as a list straight here. And once I'm done with the task, I can go ahead and simply marked. The task is complete. Editor show up is completed here. Whatever I do here will also be reflected on my Google tasks, app on my phone and why sources in the interest of full disclosure. While I do really like the Google tasks up in my personal life, I use an other task management app called to the West. Truest costs a bit of money every month, but it's an awesome app in terms of functionality. But if you want something that's free and really go to use as well, you can obviously consider Google tasks. So that's a really quick lecture on harder set up tasks in your Google calendar. I hope it's been helpful. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture, and I will see you in the next one. 8. Personalizing Your Google Calendar: personalizing your Google calendar by going over your settings can make it easier for you to manage your daily agenda and set up your notifications in a manner that you prefer. While there are many settings in this lecture, I'm gonna go through the ones that I consider are the most important. So let's drive in to access your settings menu, click the gear icon on top and select settings. You'll see three broad categories on the left. There's the general card. Agree. There's the Eid calendar category and the important export category. The general setting scategory is where you'll have all of the settings, which are related to personalizing your Google calendar. When you click the General Barton, you'll be able to use the drop down adult, expand it and see the sub categories. These sub categories look a bit different if you're using the Google calendar as an individual, or if your Google calendars part off your G suite and has been enabled by your organization . Have a look at boat side by side. As you can see, there are two additional settings on a calendar which is on the sweet and is being used for an organization organizational calendars, which are run by G suite, have the categories working ours and mean work location. If you click enable working ours, you can change your schedule based on their times that you work pretty easily. And following that we have the main work location where you can add your address. The only condition is that you'll have to have admin level access in the sweet to do so Okay, Now let's take a look at the rest of the general settings which apply to everybody. The first setting that I encourage you to take a look at is the language and reason setting . Make sure that the language country date for might and time former is based on where you're located. Next, go ahead and dive straight into event settings. Here, make sure you personalized event duration. My event duration is said I was 30 minutes, but you can change the time to the default duration that you would like. For example, if you're a fitness trainer or a piano teacher, you may prefer to have our long events. The smallest of these durations is 15 minutes, while the highest is 100 20 minutes. I'm gonna go back and leave mine at 30 minutes. Next, within the same event settings category. Go ahead and dive into the notification section. Personalizing your notifications will make sure that your own miss any events, especially during those days where you're super busy. At work. Notifications are desktop pop ups, which you can dismiss or snows and alerts are email alerts While you consider Defour preferences right here, when you're creating an event, you can also manually change or add multiple notifications. Toe any event. Personally, while I do find the default notifications useful, I often set up many manual notifications. Why? Because it never hurts to have multiple reminders set up. Usually, I said them up so that an email comes through an R before an event and a notification pops up 10 minutes before innovate. With such a set up, I rarely miss an event or a deadline. Next, I'm gonna leave this air desktop notifications, and we're gonna move on to the view options category. I've gone and checked all of my view options, and I'm gonna walk you through what each of these means. First we have the shore declined events this feature especially important for those who plan to use Google Calendar a lot to schedule and conduct meetings. Enabling this feature will allow you to see cancellations from your guests beforehand without having to wait for our swee'pea responses, and you'll be able to reschedule meetings with low attendance. So imagine the more time you can save with this one. The next feature is show. Weak numbers show weak numbers is more off a preference than a time saver or productivity tool. There are 52 weeks in a year, and by taking this box, you'll be able receive which week of the your urine. Next, you can reduce the brightness of past events. I like to keep my upcoming events nice and right, and events that have passed a bit dimmer. You can choose to do the same if you would like. And finally we have the view calendar side by side in Dave, you. By clicking this check box, you can view the woman calendar side by side, like so Now, if you're a Gmail user, you can check the events from Gmail. Check boxes Well, this will automatically add events from Gmail to your Google calendar, and lastly, because we spend so much time on a laptop. I consider the keyboard shortcuts very important. So if you're a kindred spirit, I highly recommend you check this box as well. Okay, folks, that brings us to an end of this lecture. I hope you've gone ahead and taken some time to personalize the calendar to your preferences. If not, please go ahead and do that right now. Even if you spend the next 10 to 15 minutes on personalizing your settings, at least you'll end up with the system that perfectly fit your busy day. And you'll be glad you took the time to reach that Google calendar Nirvana. Thank you so much for joining me in this lecture, and I will see you in the next one. 9. Creating Calendars & Sharing them: you can create calendars to keep track off different types of errands. For example, you could create a calendar core soccer that tracks upcoming practices and games. You can only create new calendars from a browser and not from a Google calendar app. But once the calendar is created, you can find it on your browser as well as in that who set up a new calendar. Simply go ahead and click settings and settings once again. Go ahead and select the Eid calendar, and underneath that you'll see a subcategory core. Create new calendar. Go ahead and click that give you a calendar name. So, like I just say, I could create a calendar core soccer, and I can write a description under that. It says something like four upcoming games and then I click Create calendar and my soccer calendar has been created successfully to view my soccer calendar. I go ahead back into my calendar view, and I looked down and I can see that my soccer calendar has been created. If I want to change the colors, I can go ahead and select any of these colors. So let's say I would like to make it Ah, nice tangerine, And that's my soccer calendar. I can click this Barton and I condone it off, and I condone it on. So that's how to create a new calendar. Now. I could also go ahead and share this calendar with my family, friends or co workers. In fact, a feature that makes the Google calendar rise about so many off its competing calendar Softwares and APS is its ability to share these sorts of calendars apart from the soccer calendar. Some great ideas and what you can do by sharing calendars is that you can share your mean calendar with someone else, which allows them to see your schedule. You can also create a calendar with multiple people on it. For example, you can create a family calendar, which you can share with members of your family. You can also add someone like an admin assistant or delegate to your calendar, who can schedule and edit any events for you.
