Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner and just like every year, there will be an avalanche of sales and deals coming at us left and right. To make some sense in this messy shopping-extravaganza, I decided to curate a list of all Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals related to time management and productivity (think time management books, productivity apps, calendars, …)

PS: If you know of any other deals that are not listed here, shoot me an email at [email protected] and I’ll add it to the list.

Without any further ado, here the Black Friday deals that will increase your productivity:

Apps & Software

nTask – Project manager

nTask is a project management software used by smart teams to get more done. It helps teams to create tasks, meetings, manage projects, budgets, timesheets and visualize workflows with Gantt charts. nTask makes you more productive and help meet deadlines.

How it saves you time:

An easy to use project management tool is always a win to have in your arsenal. If you feel your regular to-do list is lacking features, it might be time to transition to a project management tool instead.

ClickUp

Clickup

What it is:

ClickUp is my project manager of choice, the one I use daily for my own business and personal projects as well. They crunch out new (and better) features at a very fast rate, like Asana on steroids. They already have a very good free offer, but any chance to get on the business plan with a discount is a good deal. And did I mention their rap track?

How it saves you time:

Checklists, assignees, Gantt charts, Kanban boards, recurring tasks, calendar view, goals, scrum points, templates, reminders, subtasks, priorities, time tracking, custom fields, tags, custom workflows, iPhone and Android apps, … Did I mention their rap track already?

Freedom blocks the websites and apps (YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, games, …) of your choice on all of your devices so that you can focus on your work. You can choose which apps and sites to block, on which devices to block it, and when to block them. Read my full review here.

How it saves you time:

According to an internal user survey, over 58% said using Freedom gave them 2 or more hours back daily. 30% said it’s more than 3 hours. Hashtag mind blown.

Courses

Outsource School

What it is:

Nathan Hirsch and Connor Gillivan are rockstars when it comes to hiring virtual assistants. They’re the founders of FreeUp and know what they’re talking about. Outsource School is their flagship program and worth every penny, even without the 25% discount.

How it saves you time:

Delegating tasks to a virtual assistant is one of the sure-fire ways to create extra time in your day. But there’s more to delegating than just sending an email to your VA and hoping for the best. Creating a solid team takes deliberate effort and that’s where Outsource School comes in.

Discount details:

25% OFF their flagship program

Pluralsight

Pluralsight is an online education company that offers a variety of video training courses for software developers, IT administrators, and creative professionals

How it saves you time:

Online courses are always helpful if you’re learning a new skill. By having access to all these courses at your fingertips, you can learn when you want, as you want it. This is perfect to practice just-in-time learning, which I’m a big advocate of!

Discount details:

Udemy

What it is:

Udemy is a marketplace for course creators who can teach you specific skills. There are some great courses on this platform, but terrible ones as well because everyone can become an instructor. Nonetheless, you can refund the courses you don’t like without any hassle and there are some REALLY good courses and for $9.99? That’s a steal.

How it saves you time:
