Course of the week: The Productive Life

Accomplishing more by managing your time, attention, and energy
Erin O'Connor

Learn to accomplish more by managing your time, attention, and energy.

"Why should we invest in our productivity?" is the first question Chris Bailey asks when you begin the course, perfectly setting the scene for this month's theme of productivity.

The Productive Life course, created by Creative Live, is hosted by Chris Bailey, author of “The Productivity Project.” Chris spent a year of his life conducting productivity experiments on himself in order to discover the secrets to living the most productive life possible, which he shares through this week's course.


Since finding more hours isn’t an option, we search for ways to be more productive—to better use our limited time to not only complete our required tasks but also accomplish our loftier goals. Through this course Bailey shares his most insightful lessons on how to work deliberately rather than reactively, manage your energy better, avoid excessive procrastination and have more time to do what you find meaningful in life.
