January 13th 1:00PM EST – 2:00PM EST
This workshop for researchers covers basics of productivity and organization for a happy career and life. Centering your goals and values, you will identify the difference between urgent/non-urgent and important/non-important tasks, what deep work is and why it’s important, and learn about false notions of productivity. You will discover planning at multiple-time scales including long-term (the individual development plan), semester, weekly, and daily plans. You will also learn strategies for setting boundaries, tips to make your workflows more efficient, and what to do if you just can’t make it all fit.
