About the instructor
My name is Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus and I've been writing about Apple technology for more than thirty years.
I've written or co-written more than 85 computer books including macOS High Sierra For Dummies, iPhone For Dummies, and iPad For Dummies, with millions of copies sold worldwide.
For the past 25 years, I've been the Apple technology columnist for the Houston Chronicle (Dr. Mac—Tuesdays), and I've been a columnist for Mac Observer (Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves—usually on Wednesdays) for as long as I can remember.
My point is that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to using Apple gear and I won't steer you wrong....
My latest project is Working Smarter for Mac Users, a new online course that shows Mac users how to use their Macs better, faster, and more elegantly; banish procrastination, and do more work in less time so they have more time for things they love.
I've been fascinated with efficiency since the day I first laid my fingers on a Macintosh keyboard. I can’t remember a time when I wasn't obsessed with finding better, faster, or more elegant ways to accomplish a task on my Mac. After learning I have A.D.H.D. about 20 years ago, I became even more obsessed with cracking the productivity code.
Over the years I’ve discovered a lot of great tips and techniques for working smarter. This course is my way of sharing the best ones with other Mac users like you.
If you want to learn how to do more work in less time and have more time for things you love, I guarantee this course will save you countless hours, and continue to save you time and effort every day for the rest of your life.
