All the Details About Our New Productivity Course, All the Things

Our brand new course, All the Things, is now available.

Get All the Things »

This new course is MUCH MORE than some awesome screencasts for how to use Things 3…

There is also a full section of the course that also includes the best encapsulation yet of my productivity teaching and mindsets. (More on that below.)

In fact, if you’re not a Things user, the you can buy the productivity videos on their own without the screencasts.

The price for All the Things is just $49. And for the first few days it will be available at an early-bird pricing of $39.

You can sign up for the course and dive right in, or wait to begin at a time that is best for you. Since you will get lifetime access to the website so there is no rush to start immediately if you’re not yet ready.

Here, I want you to know exactly what you’ll be getting when you sign up for All the Things. In this article I want to unpack the whole contents of the course in order to convey just how much value there is.


Let’s dive in…

The Productivity Training Videos (8 Videos Total)

One half of the course is dedicated entirely to productivity and task-management training. These videos are valuable for anyone and everyone, regardless of which app you may use. This is also where I unpack my whole “Hybrid Productivity Method” and more.

Note: If you use OmniFocus, Todoist, or something else for your task management app, you’ll be able to buy just these productivity videos without having to buy the Things 3 screencasts as well if that is something you’d prefer.
