Why would anyone spend $500 on a productivity course?

And who has 8 weeks to set aside for a live cohort?

What's so special about AP Productivity that makes it WORTH that?

I mean, I'm obviously biased, but read on for why *I* think it's worth it...
First, the investment.

📷 Picture this: It's mid-March. You are working in your smooth productivity workflow. It is tailored to the way you work and think, and specific to your needs.

How much more will you accomplish? $500 worth?

If you're like me, MUCH more than $500 worth!
Next, the time.

Why is this a cohort course rather than a static video course?

⏳ Because iteration takes time.

For you to build a productivity workflow tailored to YOU, you need my framework. But you ALSO need guidance and feedback over time.
That's why we have multiple live sessions every week as well as a course community.

You can get the feedback you need to feel confident in your progress.

That way, after eight weeks, you have a solid workflow, PLUS you have the tools & knowhow to keep improving it.
And for those of you who prefer a static course, all of the content of Cohort 3 of AP Productivity is lifetime access.

Everything: live recordings, videos, community. Everything.

So if you miss something on the first pass and need to review it, you can. Forever.
One of the biggest challenges with #GTD is that we make lists but we don't ACCOMPLISH them.

Our lists grow and grow, and we give up.

AP Productivity attaches a Daily Cycle "front end" to a GTD "back end" that makes DOING the work much easier and more consistent.
I teach the course in @RoamResearch, but the principles transcend the medium:

Choose your work
Track your work as you do it
Capture your ideas, tasks, projects, etc.
Connect what you capture to your work

Evergreen principles. I'll teach you to implement them in YOUR workflow.
I'm not the only person who believes in the power of AP Productivity. Check out this video from past cohorts:

Don't miss out on Cohort 3. Invest in yourself and make 2022 your best year yet.

I just posted another 3 videos to my free @RoamResearch playlist “The Roaman Way”!

(as mentioned in yesterday’s edition of @elaptics’s magnificent “Letters from a Roaman” newsletter, which you should definitely subscribe to!)
Here’s the full “The Roaman Way” playlist on YouTube:

A reliable #Productivity system must track recurring actions.

Partly because we don't want to forget any of our tasks.

But mainly:

🤯You can't think "big picture" if you have "little stuff" tying up your brain's bandwidth.

To learn how *I* deal with little stuff, read on...
First, the psychological hurdle:

🖐️We don't like to capture little stuff, because it feels like "Great, now I have MORE work."

But remember:

👉 You ALREADY had that work. You just weren't accounting for it.

It was just lurking in your subconscious, weighing you down.
Now, the technical hurdles:

📥 To capture recurring actions, you need somewhere for them to go

📤 To make use of them, they should surface automatically on appropriate days

Many apps—@todoist, @amplenote, etc.—let you set tasks up with recurring logic. Problem solved.

Cal Newport's "Deep Work" is a #Productivity ideal that many aspire to.

Problem is, our lives are not always flexible enough for multiple hours of uninterrupted, focused work.

Is it possible to work deeply, but in shorter blocks of time? Read on...
A good productivity system automates, streamlines, or facilitates the transitions in our work:

👉 Getting into or out of work
👉 Starting or ending a day
👉 Shifting contexts

Simply put, a good system makes transitions easier.
To accomplish Deep Work in smaller time blocks, you need to "get to depth"—transition into work—quickly and reliably.

You need…

👉 Materials ready
👉 The right mindset
👉 Focus

…and you need them immediately.

I do this using a method I call “Making Passes”

It goes against my nature to brag (my wife might disagree), but I was so honored by kind words from @JessicaShieh, @beauhaan, @Jeanvaljean689, @RaygunIcecream, & @Fis4Thought that I wanted to thread them here.

If you use @RoamResearch and you need a guide, I can help 😊
.@JessicaShieh ran an AMAZING mini-@RoamBookClub on #GTD in November/December, and I'd be thrilled to work with her anywhere, anytime, on anything.

.@beauhaan is a kindred spirit—even though we couldn't be more different on the surface! I value his passion, energy, guts, and subtle, long-term approach to not just knowledge but wisdom. And we're both in the arts, too, which helps!
