It's time to give your to-do list a massive upgrade.
To keep your top goals front and center — without letting small-ball tasks fall through the cracks — the best thing you can do is master your task management system.
Slaying that never-ending to-do list is easier than ever before, thanks to the incredible power of task management tools like Asana, Todoist, and Monday.
The problem is, these programs are overstuffed with unnecessary features, making them way more confusing than they have to be.
That's why I created this course, designed for professionals who want a clear path to success using the same task management system my team and I use day in and day out:
Training & Tutorial
This course is designed to cut through the noise and massively simplify Asana, so that you can enjoy the benefits of the most powerful yet easy to use task management platform (and skip the learning curve).
The course will also show you how to integrate Asana into the broader Lifehack Method philosophy to amplify its power even more, so that you can:
Capture the flood of incoming tasks
...without feeling frazzled or overwhelmed
Prioritize and re-prioritize effortlessly
...keep your top priorities top of mind even as things change and evolve throughout the day
Never forget an important task or idea
...instead of losing track of small (but critical) tasks
Handle larger, more complex projects
...so that you can push your real work forward, instead of spending a lot of time updating and analyzing timelines
Scale your impact with delegation
...easily get work off your plate, without feeling like delegation is a second job
Why I Love Asana
I get why you might be nervous about using an online task management system like Asana. I was so against it!
Before using Asana, I was a hardcore “pen and paper” to-do lister.
Every morning at the start of my day, I would come into my office, sit down, and re-write my to-do list (by hand). My list was always longer than 60 items long.
At work, I was known as one of the most productive team members, but as I started taking on more responsibility, my written to-do list became impossible to manage.
Tasks started slipping between the cracks. It was hard to prioritize tasks because once they were on the page, I couldn’t move them physically to prioritize them. It took at least thirty minutes each morning just to write out my to-do list.
Sometimes at the end of the day, I would see a small task tucked into the margins that was actually REALLY important that I’d forgotten to do...
...so then I had to do it at home after dinner!
It was stressing me out and adding hours to my workweek.
So what held me back from upgrading?
I was worried that I wouldn't use it consistently. I thought that it wouldn't play well with my existing workflow. And frankly I was just scared — because I had never used an online tool like this before.
But boy, was I wrong!
Asana is a way better tool to manage my to do list — but it does a heck of a lot more!
Upgrading to Asana enabled me to capture everything that came at me, and never forget anything.
It's enabled me to prioritize rapidly, and manage all my projects on schedule (without getting stresesd out).
And it's enabled me to manage my team remotely, from all over the world, with hardly any emails or meetings.
No more frustrating miscommunications about who was going to do what, by when. There's built-in accountability for tasks getting done.
No more annoying last minute meetings to try and get clarity about a project. There's clarity built into Asana, plus an easy way to communicate about tasks without scheduling meetings or sending emails.
No more tiring late night work sessions on tasks that slipped through the cracks.
Honestly I had to ask myself: Why didn't I make the jump sooner! I felt a little foolish.
But I remember what held me back. In my previous career as a brand manager, I trained in numerous task management tools. And they're all absolutely stuffed with features. These features are supposed to make them more powerful — but they just make it confusing to learn and overwhelming to use.
That means no one wants to use them. Which means you end up with yet another task management system that you don't adhere to, and that doesn't really help you stay organized.
Let me simplify it for you.
I created this course to take you from start to finish in your journey with Asana. If you're a student of the Lifehack Method, I also show you how to integrate Asana with our broader methodology to pour jet fuel on your productivity!
Like thousands of our clients, I'm confident that this is a tool that you will LOVE using, once you know how to use it in the right way.
See you inside!
Asana is really a game changer. It definitely reduces cognitive load so we can focus on execution, and it organizes your to-do items where you can access them very easily.
Thank you, this is a game changing tool!
My beloved boss absolutely cannot be pinned down for a meeting, has a very relaxed approach to projects, and in general makes life a little like herding charming, swarthy cats.
I started an Asana page for our firm, fully expecting that it would take months of berating my boss to actually get him to USE the software.
But this morning, there were a cluster of notifications from Asana saying wonders such as:
"M commented on your task"
"M commented on your project"
"M assigned task" etc
I'm so excited to have learned about Asana! Wow.
Just the thought of one day being able to free myself from my email excites me!
I've heard of Asana before but always thought it was too advanced for me/my needs. I'm a bit of a technology dinosaur in that I get used to what I'm used to, and if I think it works fine, I'm reluctant to change.
Asana's ability to shuffle and reprioritize tasks easily without losing anything blows my mind...this is something I've always struggled with before, using my old-school system!
I was VERY intimidated by Asana [...] I also doubted Asana would be relevant to me as a solopreneur...
and I already feel wrong, which is both great (and rare haha) for me!
Thanks so much for exposing me to the powers of Asana!
It has been a tremendous tool in organizing and sharing info with my Partners and other Business Associates.
I had been using Microsoft Outlook and OneNote, and had been “muddying” through our projects. It served its purpose, but it was cumbersome, awkward, and not organized systematically for all to see.
I’ll recap briefly some of the things that Asana has done for us:
- Each project is set up separately and combined for our various ventures. Everyone that has access can see what we put together in the same way.
- To do’s are updated and sent to me each day.
- Emails have been decreased, and communication has been more effective.
- The accountability for tasks is done automatically. Each person who is assigned a task has to “buy in” and accept responsibility for each item.
- Reports are easy to generate- either by templates or by forms that we custom design. I can choose who gets to see them.
- Tracking and assessing items are easy to set up and monitor.
- Gantt charts are produced for our Investors.
I could go on, but needless to say, I am HOOKED on this system!
Again, many thanks for introducing me to this effective tool which makes my life much more productive.

When will I receive access to the course?
Is this yet another program that’s going to add work to my plate?
NO! Unlike apps like Slack, this is a force multiplier and a time saver. This is a tool that will allow you to do your existing work faster.
In a world full of time wasting, unnecessary “productivity” apps, I’m telling you that Asana is one that you need to know and master!

How long is the course?
The course has 6 parts and 41 lessons. You'll want to budget 4-5 hours to work through the content, and several additional hours to do the one-time setup work too.

If you've been frustrated or had bad experiences in the past, this course will help you perfect your task management system.
And if you want to, this is the basic infrastructure that's going to help you to work less, fully automate your business, and achieve the 4 hour workweek.
Should I master Evernote / Slack before Asana?
No, you should definitely focus on Asana before tools like Evernote or Slack.
Mastering the skill of getting things done comes first because it's more important to reaching your goals. This is best done using an action platform like Asana.
Evernote is designed for storing notes and information, but it's not an action platform like Asana. Slack is (yet another) communication platform, which means it's not an action platform either. These are useful tools, but if you don't currently have a task management system in place, then you should focus your energy on remedying that first before moving on to other tools.
