This is the story of how I finally completed a Coursera course. I am going to tell you how I used deep work to complete a 4-week course on Search Engine Optimization in 4 days and achieved a certificate. For me, this was a remarkable feat. It was the first time I was able to complete a Coursera course. The first course I joined on Coursera was ” Grow to Greatness: Smart Growth for Private Businesses”. That was in July 2012. Since then, I have enrolled in more than 15 courses. For some reason, I always enthusiastically signed up to the courses but never completed it (PS, back then it was all for free).
