Welcome! If you skipped over my Home and Start Here pages, I suggest you go back and read them first.

Here’s some more about Schedule U.

It’s a virtual school which is part of 2Time Labs. Both are owned by Framework Consulting Inc, which is a Florida company.

I first had the idea for Schedule U when I finished my second book, Perfect Time-Based Productivity in 2015. I knew that  there was little or no help to people who wanted to reach higher scheduling skills. There was information, but it was fragmented and scattered.

Plus, popular digital calendars were modeled after appointment calendars. They weren’t designed for managing tasks.

It’s the kind of question we like to tackle at 2Time Labs. I’m an industrial engineer and operations researcher by training so the kind of challenges the Labs attracts tend to have a combination of human behavior and technology. The challenge of “scheduling everything” combines a fair amount of both sides of the coin.

Other recent challenges I have taken on, sometimes in collaboration with others include the following:

This special report took about two years to write, requiring me to delve into fields such as psychology, philosophy and linguistics. This paper brings them together in a single place, perhaps for the first time to answer a question in a single deep dive.
These three articles tackled the problem of three selves rolled into. The Notified Self is made up of the Interrupted Self, The Warned Self and the Informed Self. They all describe ways we use technology and information to change our daily behavior and increase our productivity. The main purpose of these articles was to empower people to manage their environment in ways which are empowering.
Task management apps are usually designed to be little more than databases – dry and uninviting. Starting from my experience using an auto-scheduler, I argue that much more can be done to gamify task management apps so they become engaging opportunities for users which are immersive and fun.
This article brings together two opposing and sometimes contentious points of view. Schedulers and Listers sometimes claim their approach is best and in this article I show where they both are correct, to some degree.
My book is currently being updated with a new edition that will address the emergence and usage of auto-schedulers.

Here are other general resources in which you may have an interest.

Total Task Scheduling isn’t the only technique we focus on at 2Time Labs, but the last couple of years have focused on particular evolution and the impact is has on the working professional.

In addition to working with individuals, we also work with companies. Some are startups which are designing a new application. The most prominent relationship we have is with SkedPal, an auto-scheduling app that’s prominently featured on this site. However, the site supports the success of any program or device in this field.

We also deliver live and online programs within companies, plus individual programs to individuals. These can be found at MyTimeDesign.com.

It’s great to have you here at Schedule U and please use the contact page to ask me any questions you wish, or set up an complimentary consultation via phone or Skype.
