It's time to ditch the overwhelm of managing your to-do list.

With Tasks Made Simple, you'll get an easy-to-follow system for managing all of your tasks, to-dos, and goals so that you can enjoy a purposefully productive life.


Let's take back control of your time.

Each day you have 24 hours to spend on the things that matter most.

Unfortunately, much of your time ends up being wasted on distractions, other people's priorities, and emergencies of the moment rather than the important tasks that would make a meaningful difference in your life.

You want to use your time wisely, but the to-dos just keep piling up, and it seems like there's never any time (or energy!) left to work toward the bigger goals you have for the future.

You know you need an effective system for managing all of life's to-dos, but you feel stuck just thinking about how to make that happen.

We get it. And we have just the solution you need.

What if you could finally keep track of your tasks & goals ALL in one place...

...and knew exactly how to manage them (so that they can seem to stop managing YOU)?!

A short course that shows you exactly how to (easily!) manage ALL of your daily to-dos, regular tasks, AND long-term goals, so that you can finally have the freedom to focus on what matters most!

With Tasks Made Simple, you'll finally be able to:

  • Clear your mind & get organized once and for all, with all of your tasks & goals located in one place
  • Have a system (one that works for YOU!) that helps you work through your to-dos in an effective, methodical way, especially so you don't forget the important ones!
  • Feel accomplished as you tackle your daily to-dos while also making progress on your long-term projects
  • Know exactly what you need to do do next (instead of feeling stuck with everything you have on your plate!)
  • Develop a consistent habit of purposeful productivity & have more time for what matters most

Ready for a task-management system you'll actually stick with?

Tasks Made Simple is the proven + simple roadmap you need to get there!

Let us've tried this whole "task management" thing before, and it just didn't work out.

You had great intentions.

You bought that perfect physical planner (that had every organization category possible - how could you go wrong?!).

Or maybe you downloaded that "ideal time-management app" that was surely going to guarantee that THIS TIME, you would definitely stay on top of all of those to-dos (instead of your usual of being buried underneath them).

And didn't end up using either one. 😬

Believe us when we say: you're not the only one.

We asked our readers to share their biggest struggles when it comes to productivity...any of this sound familiar?

That all changes with Tasks Made Simple.

Whether you've tried (and failed) 100 times to come up with a method for managing your tasks...or whether you've always been too intimidated to even start, Tasks Made Simple teaches you the exact, simple step-by-step system you need and shows you HOW to implement it.

Once. and. for. all.

Feel like your brain is constantly performing mental gymnastics as your mind continually flips through (and let's be honest: often tumbles over) everything you need to do?

It's a delicate balancing act of managing everything from your family, to your job, to maintaining your home, and all of those "life" areas in between...and at any minute, you feel like you're going to just fall off that beam.

In Tasks Made Simple, we show you how using a digital task manager helps you get everything out of your head to mount - and maintain - all of your to-dos, tasks, and goals in ONE spot.

And, we coach you through how to prioritize all of those lists to ensure that you can take care of BOTH the smaller urgent items AND the bigger important goals.

Here's what you can expect inside of this course:

Getting Started with Digital Task Management

  • We'll lay the groundwork, establishing how a digital task manager will be most beneficial to you.

  • We'll also point out the downsides of each app, and let you know what you may want to watch for based on your specific circumstances and priorities.

Meaningful Productivity with Your App of Choice

  • At this point, you will have chosen the task management app that works best for you, so now it's time to learn to use it most effectively.

This course is for you if you:

  • Have a lot of things you'd like to accomplish but can never seem to find the time to do them  
  • Constantly forget details because you have so many tasks and events that you're trying to juggle
  • Wish you could spend more time doing what you love instead of constantly running around trying to fix the emergency of the moment

Here's the deal:

Paper planners are great...

...until they're not.

While our paper planners can be great for keeping track of some aspects of our schedule and creating simple lists, they come up *way* short in helping us plan out more robust projects, manage recurring tasks, and formulate long-term plans.

And since we don't have our paper planner with us at all times like a task management app on our phone, we will inevitably forget to record ideas and to-dos that come to mind while we are on the go, causing us to miss important deadlines or lose out on moments of inspiration.

After talking to so many of you, we've discovered that you're struggling with the same stresses, and that paper planners aren't cutting it for you, either.

Learn why we swear by a task management app (and by the end of Tasks Made Simple, you will, too!):


Think about it...your phone is always with you. Your physical planner may or may not make it into your purse when you're on the go, but that phone is always in your back pocket.

Because you've always got your phone, you've always got a way to record those to-dos and tasks that pop up during the day. Open the app, jot them down, and now your brain is free to focus on something else, rather than dealing with the constant low-grade stress of trying to make sure you remember them until you have a chance to write them down when you get home.


It really doesn't do you much good to have a mile-long to-do list if you can't maintain it. (In fact, that's a great way to just pile on more stress, isn't it?!)

With a task management app, you can easily maintain your lists - check them off, move unfinished tasks to the next day, and delete to-dos that are no longer relevant.


Some tasks are more important. Some are more urgent. And some require a lot of steps. A task management app gives you the flexibility to arrange all of your tasks, to-dos, and projects in a way that works for you...and then rearrange it later when you need to change things up.


Physical planners only have so many pages, but digital task managers don't have those boundaries.

As our lives change (and our goals change right along with them), it's a lot harder to adapt notes and plans we have written out in a paper planner. With a task management app, you have the room to create action steps for bigger, more complicated long-term projects, and those can then be easily front & center, right along with your day-to-day tasks.

And, you can access, review, and change those long-term goals & tasks with just a few clicks.


We've become so reliant upon that trusty search bar, haven't we? With a task management app, you can easily do a quick search and find what you're looking for, rather than spending precious time thumbing through pages of your planner or scouring papers on your desk to find your lists.


If you have a family, run a small business, or manage an organization where you're teaming up with at least one other person to take care of the day-to-day, this feature of a task management app is SO helpful in getting everyone on the same page and keeping all of your collective to-dos in one spot.


We paid the electric bill this month - check! But you can't really check it off your list...because it's only going to come back next month. And the month after that. Along with those dozens of other regular tasks and to-dos that you have to manage in any given week or month.

With a paper planner, you need to rewrite each of those tasks every time you want to complete them. But, with a digital task manager, you can create the task once, set it for the interval at which you want it to occur, and then it automatically shows up for you each time you need to complete it.

Believe us, this feature will save you a TON of time, and it also ensures that you don't forget anything important since the tasks are automatically recurring.

You'll wonder what you ever did without a task management app in your life!

We know life is about far more than just checking off our to do list.

But we also know that when we're distracted and overwhelmed with everything we need to do, it's hard to show up for and enjoy so many other aspects of our lives.

Hi! We're Donnie and Abby Lawson - parents, entrepreneurs, and firm believers in meaningful productivity!

We know how chaotic it can feel to balance work responsibilities, raising kids, church or volunteer commitments, maintaining relationships, hobbies and activities we love, and more. We're so excited to share the system that has helped us navigate it all and stay sane in the process.

When we're not blogging, you can find us running on the local trails, cheering on the Pittsburgh sports teams, and going on adventures with our two sons, Connor and Caleb.

Here's just some of what you'll love about this course:


We know you're busy, so we've made each course module brief & easy for you to go through AND finish!


We coach you through every step of using a task management app and how to make it work for YOU.


We give you BOTH a weekly strategy AND a daily strategy (that work together!) to help you build a habit of tending to your tasks & goals.


This is the system we use and we KNOW it'll work for you. We help you learn how to routinely tend to both your "urgent" to-dos AND your big, important goals.

Have some questions?

How is the course material delivered?

After purchase, you will get access to the course portal which includes all of the lessons in video format. Some of the videos are a slide presentation, while others are screencast videos of our computer or mobile devices. We've found this format and these type of videos are the most conducive to learning.

Is the course just theory or do you teach the technical side of setting up the task management apps as well?

Both! Tasks Made Simple walks step-by-step through our tried and true strategy for managing both our short-term tasks and long-term goals. We'll introduce you to four top-tier task management options and guide you through the process of choosing the one that works best for you. Then we'll show you how to set up the task manager you've chosen and use it to create more time for the things you value most.

Do the task management apps cost money?

Each of the four task management apps we cover in this course - TickTick, ToDoist, Things, and Evernote - has a fee associated with it to be able to access all of the features you'll want to use. Some are subscription-based fees and others are one-time purchases.

Can I use a different task management app than the four you cover in the course?

We have intentionally chosen the apps that we've found to have the best features, layout, and ease of use to help you truly make the most of your time. While some of the task management principles still apply no matter what task management app you use, you won't have the advantage of watching the app-specific lessons and tutorials we provide if you choose to go with a different app.

How long do I have to complete the course?

Once you enroll, you then have lifetime access to the course so you can refer to it as often as you need to!

How is this course different than Paperless Made Simple?

While Tasks Made Simple and Paperless Made Simple certainly complement one another, they cover completely different material.

Tasks Made Simple teaches students how to choose the right task management app for them and then use that app to maximize the time they spend on the things they value most.

Paperless Made Simple teaches students how to use the Evernote app to eliminate paper clutter and gain access to all of their most important documents anytime, anywhere, with just a few clicks on their smartphones.

What's the refund policy?

We've done our very best to create a course that we think will be oh-so-helpful for you, but if you find that Tasks Made Simple is not a good fit, you may request a refund within 30 days of your purchase.

What if I have a different question?
