My “Go-to-Gal” for Delegation

By |

Did you ever have someone pop into your life at just the right time?  Holly Matson creator of Lightseeds Office was just that person for me.  I was getting ready to launch my first virtual program and switch over to a new website.  I could hardly keep up with writing all the copy – and forget about proofing it!  A colleague recommended I hire […]

Schedule Your Procrastination

By |

“Productive Procrastination” – a very real . . . and very sneaky . . . phenomena where you stay busy all day yet accomplish very little.  Previously, I wrote a post entitled “Don’t Confuse Progress With Motion”  where I shared 5 tips on how to overcome Productive Procrastination.  Periodically I’m updating some of these solutions; last time we talked about identifying your #1 task […]

What’s the “WHY” Behind That Task?

By |

Delegation.  I know – this is one topic I cover OFTEN on my blog.  Why?  Because I sincerely believe this is one of the areas in which you can “gain” a large chunk of time. (Read more on delegation here.)

Yet clients often resist delegating.

What would happen if you worked like […]

The Truth Is In the White Space

Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing my journey as a student in the Holistic Time Coaching Class.  When I first enrolled in this course, my thought process was that I would be able to fine tune my personal time management strategies and learn some new methods I could use when working with clients.

AND – this is certainly true.  (Read more about some […]

How Do You Plan to Outsource?

By |

Delegate.  Delegate.  Delegate.  Delegate.  Intellectually we know that when we delegate a task – we free up time to work on our priorities.  However, deciding which tasks to delegate can be a challenge.

I thought I had a good handle on this.  Really!  I teach clients how to delegate tasks all day long.  Of course, I delegated effectively myself.  Right?  WRONG!

As I put myself back […]

Teacher as Student

By |

I just recently completed the Holistic Time Coaching class for continuing education credit.  Often, I hear professionals complain about needing to take continuing education courses to keep their certificates current.  I’ve never been that person.  I LOVE to learn – and relish the idea of learning more and increasing my skill-set to better serve my clients.

When I heard of the opportunity to enroll in […]

National No Housework Day

By |

What does time management and National No Housework Day have in common?  Excellent question – the answer in a moment, I promise.

But first, humor me and take a look at your to-do list.  Are you looking forward to completing the tasks on your list?

Same thing with your project list.  Are you jazzed by the thought of completing those projects?

If not – consider delegating. Delegating […]
