The amount of time available to you is constant – you can't buy more and you can't save it for later. What you can do is increase your productivity – the value you produce in the time you have. And the better you understand your own personal productivity, the easier it will be to manage your time effectively. In this course, you'll learn about managing tasks in a way that maximizes your productivity.
