Time Management, Simplified

Time Management, Simplified

Simplified task and time management for getting a few hours of your week back
In this brand-new course, we show you how to track your time and plan your day using “time blocks” so you can be more productive and make the most of the time that you have available to you.

Having a simple way to schedule your day can be especially important if you find yourself in the middle of a transition — such as trying to figure out how to work from home with additional distractions you wouldn’t have at the office. Timeblocking can help you regain control of your day and make sure you are spending your time effectively on the things that are important.

Simple Habits

Simple Habits

Want to use habits to your advantage?
With good habits in place, your life is just easier. When a crisis happens, our lives change. And we often emerge with new habits and routines. Hopefully we develop better routines that help us and allow us to come out of the crisis as a better version of ourselves.

But sometimes we develop not-so-great routines. Many people will wait until an emergency arises before they pay attention to an area of their life. This is REACTIVE LIVING.

Why do we offer video courses?

Here at The Sweet Setup, our business model is simple:

  1. We spend our time testing, reviewing, and recommending the best apps and workflows for you.

  2. For the apps which are more-popular and more powerful, we create in-depth training to help you save time and enjoy your apps more.

You shouldn’t have to waste your time trying to learn the ins and outs of an app. Who knows if you are missing out the best features, or not taking full advantage of all the ways an app can serve you and improve your work and home life.

You deserve to feel confident and excited with the apps and tools you use each day.

Moreover, by purchasing our training products you support the work we do here at The Sweet Setup. You are enabling us to publish more app reviews, do more research, and create additional training for you. Thanks!
