To successfully manage a project, you must be able to manage yourself. Elaine and Jill will first introduce you to the tools and processes they use – including Toodledo, Trello, Bullet Journal, and Getting Things Done – to manage projects and bring short- and long-term goals to fruition. Then they will prompt you to consider how you can improve on your current methods in order to excel in self-organization.
