What people say…

Jim Silver

“It’s only been a week since I bought Peter’s course and my life hasn’t felt this organized ever.”

Peter Baron

“I loved learning more about Todoist’s features, and more importantly the concept of a weekly review. I've toyed with this in the past, but struggled with a format. Peter’s makes so much sense to me.”

Do you feel overwhelmed?

Do you spend more time on urgent tasks than on important tasks?

Do you resort to pen and paper to plan your day? Have you tried using Todoist before, only to give up in frustration?

If so, you’re in the right place. In this video course, you’ll learn an Todoist workflow you can rely on.


  • You feel less stress because you’ve got your projects under control.
  • People see you as reliable because you don’t miss deadlines.
  • You feel proud because you’re doing the important work.
  • You know exactly what to work on next.
  • Nothing slips through the cracks.

How can you get there?

By learning a simple Todoist workflow you can trust. And that’s what you’ll learn in this self-paced video course.


Home tasks, work projects, being there for your friends and family, staying healthy, taking care of your finances—how do you keep track of it all?

Incoming emails rule your day. You rarely get to your most important tasks because you’re always chasing deadlines. And you feel overwhelmed.

Before you know it, you forgot to buy a birthday present for your mom, your boss is nagging you about that report that was due yesterday, and you still haven’t gotten around to filing your tax return. 🤦🏻

It doesn’t have to be this way.


  • Get your tasks from everywhere else (email, websites, Slack/Teams…) into Todoist
  • Integrate Todoist with the apps you already use
  • Structure your tasks with projects and tags (“labels”)
  • Set up custom views (“filters”) to see just the to-dos you need
  • Plan your days and weeks
  • Execute consistent weekly reviews
  • Use templates to save time and reduce errors

Of course, you’ll learn lots of specific things too, like how to use due dates; how to handle your email (🧘🏻); and how to never forget a birthday again ( 🥳).


You’ll learn exactly what you need—no more and no less. I’ve designed the course to be efficient, because your time is valuable.

You could piece together information on using Todoist from random places all over the Internet, like YouTube videos, blog posts, and the official documentation. But how long would that take? And what is that time worth to you?

When you follow this course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to organize your life and to be productive using Todoist. You’ll save tons on time compared to figuring things out yourself.

Think about what you could do with the extra time. You could spend it with your kids. You could spend it learning to play the guitar. Or you could, you know, spend the time doing the actual work you want to do!


  • be able to focus,
  • feel in control
  • know what to work on next,
  • save time and reduce errors,
  • and have a system, so nothing slips through the cracks.

That’s what learning a workflow you can trust will do for you.

After An Afternoon or Two, You Could…

  • Feel much better as your life is nicely organized and under control
  • Never let tasks slip through the cracks again
  • Have a system you can rely on to get stuff done

Just close your eyes for a moment and picture that. Feels good, doesn’t it?

What’s Included In The Course...

Module 1

  • Getting your to-dos out of your head and into Todoist
  • Creating tasks from outside of Todoist

  • Labeling (aka tagging) your to-dos to track different types of tasks

  • Prioritizing your tasks
  • Planning for a productive day
  • Making sure nothing slips through the cracks with weekly reviews
Module 4

Integrating Todoist into Your Workflows

One of Todoist’s great strengths is that it works well with the other apps you already use. So we’ll set up some integrations.

  • Getting clear on what belongs in Todoist (so we keep your to-do list tidy)
  • Integrating Todoist with your calendar
  • Time blocking with Todoist
  • Using Todoist widgets on your phone
  • Working with Todoist extensions & integrations
  • Tracking your habits with Todoist
Module 5

Using Todoist as Efficiently as Possible

After you learn the basic Todoist workflows and system, we’ll make using Todoist as friction-free as possible.

  • Creating filters (aka custom views) to view your to-dos just the way you want
  • Using keyboard commands and the command menu to get things done quickly
[COMING SOON] Module 6

Collaborating Using Todoist

Todoist is thoroughly updating its collaboration features. When the new-and-improved collaboration feature becomes available in the coming months, I will create a module to teach you how to use it. 

If you enroll now, you will of course get access to the collaboration module for no extra charge. I will notify you when it’s ready.

Bonus: Todoist Cheat Sheet

The course comes with a handy one-page cheat sheet to help you use Todoist as productively as possible.

Each lesson comes with (English) captions and a full transcript.

This course is for you if you…

  • feel overwhelmed
  • need to organize your to-dos and projects
  • find things slipping through the cracks
  • are unhappy with your current task manager, or
  • have tried Todoist but haven’t stuck with it

I’m Peter Akkies

After graduating from a top college, I went to work in litigation consulting. I faced a never-ending to-do list and was always involved in many projects simultaneously. I didn’t have much free time.

After a few years, I decided to quit and start my own business. I soon began to teach people how to use task management apps to organize their lives, the way I wished I had when I worked in consulting.

These days, I can’t imagine my life without my to-do system. And I use what I learned as a consultant and in running my own business to help people like you get more organized. I’ll show you how to use the right workflows and systems to be more productive, and feel less overwhelmed.

Now, for the first time in a long time, I’m actually starting to consider myself ‘organized.’ The spillover effect is noticeable too: organizing my office, starting a morning routine, etc.

After taking Peter’s course, I am coming into the new week with so much more clarity.

— Angela Marshall

Peter’s course is so much more than just a simple ‘How-to set it up’ - he takes you through a workflow.
