I decided to enrol in the learning path Improve Your Organizational Skills because I am not the most organised person. Sure, I’ve done courses and read books on the subject in the past, but they never really stuck. I also tend to adopt habits of those that I live with. These habits work for them but don’t work for me. I hoped to learn at least a couple useful methods for addressing my shoddy organisation habits going in but I prepared for a non-event.

Time Management Fundamentals is the first course in the path and addresses three areas: Space, Mind and Time. From the beginning, Dave Crenshaw considers how we can reduce switch-tasking. Dave Crenshaw considers how we can reduce switch-tasking. You might have an idea of the inherent problems in switch-tasking already. For those that don’t, let’s just say that it isn’t an efficient way to finish your tasks.
I was a little sceptical initially but over time, the methods made a lot of sense. Within the day, I was able to implement many of the suggestions. I still have a way to go, but uncluttering your life goes a long way towards helping free up time that can be used for other things. I still have a bit of work in the email uncluttering department but I feel like I am in a lot better place than where I was before I did the course. To say that I got something out of this course is an understatement. I was able to implement many of the methods discussed immediately. This is where a lot of other books and courses on the subject fail miserably.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to make better use of their workspace and time. You can get a bit more of your sanity back in the process as well because you are less likely to rummage and forget things. If this appeals to you, give the course a run and try to implement the methods discussed.
