Being more productive

February 22 @ 13:00 - 17:00 AEDT



Every academic is looking to be just that bit more productive. Whether it is in writing grants, or marking papers, or writing articles or just collecting more data. But the question is how? For most people, the answer tends to be longer work hours. Either coming in early. Staying on later. Or working on the weekends. Or even all THREE!

But, I don’t think that is necessary – let alone healthy – in order to be competitive/successful as an academic.

In this half-day training, we’ll get hands on with your to-do list, calendar, email etc to cover ways you could be more productive. So you can get back your mornings, evenings and/or weekends.

What to expect

  • 4 hours in a group of up to 20 people.
  • Tuesday 22 Feb 1 pm to 5 pm (Melb, Aus Time) (check my timezone)
  • Via zoom, which allows recording and play back later for those who register in advance.
  • Direct review of your current approaches to staying productive
  • Tips on:
    • Building better habits
    • Breaking bad habits
    • Scheduling
    • Saying “no”
    • When to say “yes”
    • Making better decisions (in less time)
    • To-do lists
    • project, program and people management
    • Time management


  • 4 hours for the workshop.
  • $99 (AUD inc GST) up front via EFT or credit or paypal.

What you’ll need

  • Sound work ethic
  • Computer, internet connection, camera and mic
  • Positive attitude
  • Willingness to work with me and others in the group
  • Willingness to share your ideas on productivity
