4.9 stars This course was helpful for me to recognize things that I can work on to improve my productivity and also recognize tasks that reduce my productivity. I think that I have identified some tools/processes that I will be able to apply to my everyday work functions. I believe that by studying what I am doing now and working to implement some of the ideas learned here today, I will become better at managing time and prioritizing key tasks and general tasks.
