AP Productivity: Cohort Seven is Underway!

Sign up here to receive an email when registration for Cohort Eight launches (mid-to-late March).

What is AP Productivity?

In AP Productivity, we do not build you a system that only works "in theory." By the end of the cohort, you'll have a reliable productivity system that is tailored to accomplish the work that's important to you, and customized to overcome your specific productivity hurdles.

AP Productivity is not GTD. If you like the idea of GTD, but you've always struggled to implement it, AP Productivity is your answer.


At the end of the six-week, live cohort course, you'll be:

✅ Confident building, adapting, running, and maintaining productivity processes in Tana

✅ Comfortable integrating Tana with other apps or processes as needed for your work

✅ Comfortable designing and diagramming complex system structures using Obsidian Canvas

✅ In control of your time

✅ Clear on your priorities

✅ Equipped with valuable routines & habits, as well as templates for your recurring processes and projects

✅ Able to handle urgent work without being overwhelmed by it

✅ Equipped to further develop your system to adapt to future changes in your life and work

✅ More efficient and effective than you've ever been with systems you've used in the past—because this system is tailormade for you

❓How does the cohort work?

AP Productivity: Cohort is a six-week, live cohort course. We are focused on action. Though you certainly will learn tips & tricks along the way, our goal is far bigger: you'll come away with a reliable system and you'll know how to use it.
