How to Overcome “Stuck”

Procrastination is a topic that clients often ask to discuss during our coaching calls.  Sometimes they lament, “I know I’m a procrastinator, it’s just who I am, I wish I could change.”  Others will comment, “I want to stop procrastinating, I know it’s ‘bad’ for me, but I just do my best work when I’m under pressure.” Sometimes clients will say, “I’m so excited […]

How You Can Succeed at the Balancing Act

When Amy Walker of Walk Your Talk Radio invited me to talk with her, the topic seemed to set itself. We all deal with “the balancing act” – managing family and work obligations. And Amy is a master at helping women to find balance in a busy, chaotic world.

It’s so important to add yourself into the balancing mix. How do you remember to get […]

Get in the Boat and Enjoy Your Journey

Today I’m going to continue my “time management is like a boat” analogy.  First, you need to keep your head above water, then you can get into the boat.  When you are feeling overwhelmed and out-of-control it is difficult to make long term decisions.  Every thing feels immediate and urgent.

However, once you are able to move past the overwhelm, then you can begin to […]

How Many Hours in a Day?

Have you ever looked at your schedule and realized that it was pretty packed?  A client recently told me, “I scheduled 7.5  hours of tasks into a 7  hour day – and didn’t schedule any time for lunch, email maintenance, or productivity (or potty!) breaks.  Then, I got upset because I didn’t finish everything. That’s crazy, right?!”  Is this familiar?

Enter Julie Gray’s Time Truth: […]

Keep Your Head Above Water

Time management is a journey – not a destination.  Becoming more efficient and effective is a goal, a mission, a vision – not a stopping point.  Excelling in the area of time management means something different for each of us.  I’m curious … where are you in your time management journey?

As I work with clients – I find they usually fall into one of […]

Is Your Own Cup Full?

A time strategy visionary takes a time management course and realizes she doesn’t have enough time. This isn’t a brain teaser or a joke.  This statement is actually based on my experience of enrolling in and completing the Holistic Time Coaching course through Coach Approach for Organizers.

Each week I will share my experience and ah-ha moments  as I put myself back in the role […]

Another Take on the Magic Number 168

Previously I’ve written about how the number 168 has magical time management powers.   (OK – maybe not magical powers, but using the fact that there are 168 hours in the week, and determining how to allocate them ahead of time, is certainly a powerful time management principle.)
