Coming Next Week: Our New Productivity Course, All the Things
Our brand new course, All the Things, launches in just one week.
We’ve been hinting at it over the past month, and we’re now ready to share the actual launch date: Tuesday, February 13.
This is, by far, the most comprehensive training we have ever done here at The Sweet Setup. It is focused entirely on productivity and task management, and there is quite a bit more to it than just the tutorials for mastering Things 3. This course will give you some great tips and tricks for fine-tuning your task management and daily focus.
All the Things is actually two courses in one
Module One of the course is a series of video screencast tutorials that take you line by line through the entirety of Things 3 on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.
Module Two is a wholly separate productivity and task-management course. We know a lot of our readers use OmniFocus, Todoist, or something else. Thus we wanted to also have a section of the course for anyone, no matter what app you use for your task management.
In the coming days we’ll be posting several new articles as part of our countdown to the new course. We’ll also be sharing a complete rundown of all the things we cover in All the Things.
Here are some of the articles we’ve already posted:
- Our in-depth review of Things 3 as our pick for the best productivity app.
- Three workflows for quickly adding project templates and tasks to Things on iOS
- How to ensure your task inbox doesn’t get overloaded.
- What is a shutdown routine and why does it matter?
- How to use your task manager to process email.
- Behind the Scenes: Shooting Video for All the Things
Starting tomorrow and leading up to the launch of All the Things, we’ll be posting a handful of new articles and videos on productivity and task management.
Wednesday: Sneak peek from the “Hybrid Productivity” method video, as well as the 6 areas of my overall productivity focus.
Thursday: A comparison breakdown between Things, OmniFocus, and Todoist.
Friday: My most-used AppleScript for Things on the Mac.
Monday: Complete list of all videos, interviews, and training included in All the Things.
Tuesday: All the Things launches.

The Complete Guide to Managing Tasks in Things (Video)
If you struggle to keep up with all your tasks, we can show you some organization tips that may help you.
We put together a video that shows you everything you need to know about a task in Things:
- The difference between start dates and due dates and how to use them effectively.
- How to set up reminders so you never forget an important task again.
- How to use checklists for tasks that require more than one step.
- How to configure daily, weekly, monthly, or even annual repeating tasks.
- And more…
You don’t have to use any of these things in your tasks if you don’t want to. But knowing what they are and how they all work will help you be more organized, save time, and ensure you are using Things in the way that suits you best.
This video is something we have made available for free to our email subscriber community. You can get it right now. By joining the Sweet Setup community you’ll also get access to other guides, early previews to big new reviews and workflow articles we are working on, weekly roundups of our best content, and more.
