How To Turn 15 Hours of Work into 8

Let me tell you a story.
(And if you can relate to this story please be sure to leave a comment below.)

Once upon a time … in a land far, far away (Florida) there lived a focused and diligent entrepreneur.  He had been working with a brilliant time strategy visionary (hmmm wonder who that could be?! LOL!) and was becoming incredibly efficient and effective with […]

What’s the “WHY” Behind That Task?

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.

Sometimes the reason is “I just don’t have anyone to delegate to”.  (See this post for resources)

Sometimes the reason is “I […]

This is Normal – Now What?

“I’ll start exercising as soon as things get back to normal.”

“As soon as my business evens out, I’ll spend more time with my family.”

“I’ll take a vacation as soon as things settle down.”

Guess what – I hate to rain on your parade, but this IS your normal!

Waiting until “things get back to normal” is counter-productive.  You are putting off your happiness and postponing your […]

How Do You Plan to Outsource?

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 […]

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 […]


Recently I’ve been reading posts about picking a “word for the year”.  One word that will define your actions, intent, and purpose for 2015.  It seems like such a good idea.  In fact, I remember picking a word for 2014.

However, I don’t remember what that word was!  I’m confident the “word” didn’t drive my actions, intent, and purpose for 2014 –  I can’t even […]

Superman in a Wheelchair

Steve Jobs is quoted as saying, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future … believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and […]
