We take a slight pause in the Creating a Software Solution series to look at productivity.  One of the key attributes of a good developer and team is the ability to accomplish goals.  Yes, this is obvious, but getting things done is not.  In this class and discussion we look at how to move things from your in box to the out box.

Getting Things Done Instead of Working Hard

We cover being busy instead of being productive.  Along the way we look at some tools and provide tips for your professional and personal productivity challenges.  This class can apply to anyone. However, we want to emphasize productivity as a step to take before moving to implementation of your software project.

Moving the Ball Forward

We have often discussed the concept of forward momentum in our mentoring classes.  This presentation moves from theory to a lesson on practical steps everyone can take to remove the busy times from their lives.  These are steps anyone can take to assess the times in their lives where they are simply being busy and remove them.  Thus, there will be more time to be productive, accomplish goals, and then free up time for other pursuits.

If you feel overwhelmed at work or at home then this course is for you.  You will also see how getting things done is not just another business success strategy, it is a way of life.  Better yet, it is a way to living a fuller life of more freedom.


This series comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes.  These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses.  The goals of each member vary.  However, this diversity makes for great discussions and ton of educational value every time we meet.  We hope you enjoy this series as much as we enjoy creating it.
