"It actually works. I used to be stressed all the time, but I cannot recall one more stressful moment since I started working with it. Can you imagine not being stressed at UCR? "


Debbie-Esmee de Vlugt, UCR student, writing for Tabula Rasa

University College Roosevelt offers digital time-management workshops inspired by David Allen's 'Getting Things Done' method to its students, with a special focus on using the smartphone app Wunderlist to put it all into practice. The method taught in these workshops is described in detail the free ebook "Make lists not fists", written by UCR instructor dr. R. Rensma. It is available for free in the downloads section of this website.


The book was originally written with a student audience in mind, but the content is presented in such a way that it can be applied to any endeavor that comes with a high workload and a large amount of to-do items - even UCR's managing director

Jorrit Snijder has become a recent convert to the method. If you enjoyed the book, please consider making a donation to the 'Friends of UCR', a program which has as its aim the creation of scholarships for non-EU students who would not otherwise have had the ability to study at University College Roosevelt, a small liberal arts college in the Netherlands with big achievements. You can watch a short video about the activities of the friends of UCR below. More information is available on their website.
