Class Introduction: Structure & how to succeed

I know you're eager to get started and of course I want to be respectful and considerate of your time. So this is just a quick lecture to explain to you how we're going to break apart the course and structure it in the next section. General principles for hacking your productivity. We're going to learn the overall strategies and theories around improving productivity. Now these general tips and tricks apply to every aspect of your life, not just the specific areas we are going to focus on in the course. It's important to invest in the right mindset and skill set up front in order to build the proper foundation for the subsequent productivity hacks, you should view the theories and strategies in section two as ways of thinking, ways of looking at your work and different mental hacks to improve your productivity, efficiency and efficacy in any task you pursue. In each of the next four sections, we are going to tackle an area of life where people typically spend a lot of their time at the...

time of recording. These sections include speeding up and automating computer work, speeding up health and fitness, automating your finances and delegation and saying no. In each of these overarching sections, we're going to check out a few strategies, tools, tricks and tips that we can use to either speed up or automate some of the time consuming tasks in that area. Now some areas lend themselves more easily to improvements and therefore there will be more resources for say something like computer work than there will be for sleep, which is a pretty fundamental biological need anyways, if you're taking this course, it's safe to assume that you're suffering from a lack of free time. Thus, in the interest of time and efficiency, my goal is not to teach you everything that there is to know about every single individual topic or subject during the lectures. Instead, I will give you an introduction, a functional explanation and I'll help you understand where the concept or practice fits into the bigger picture. Then I'll provide some carefully curated supplementary materials which you should read and digest as homework. I expect that you as a diligent student will seek out further learning on topics that you find interesting. This coincides with my background in accelerated learning as I know that only if you make the material your own and interact with it and dig into the topics that you are interested in on your own time. Will you really internalize it? So while we may go quickly, there is a reason Now a note on the computer stuff by the way, for most demonstrations, I will be using a Mac, iphone or ipad but don't worry. I will also give links and explanations and examples and sometimes even screenshots for Windows android or even Linux. We're also going to be giving you lots of quizzes which will help reinforce the material you're learning last but not least. I want to say that not every hack is for everyone. Some people enjoy the process of leisurely walking to work for 30 minutes when they could just as easily ride a bike in five. I understand that, and so it's up to you to pick and choose what is helpful to you and what isn't. And so without any further ado and thanks for your patience. Let's dive into our first section, which deals with the overall principles of speeding up and hacking productivity. This will give us the right mental frameworks and understandings to apply all the subsequent tricks tips and hacks.
