It’s Christmas – in July!

Happy Holidays!   I know it’s not Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or Ramadan or  . . . but we can celebrate Christmas in July, can’t we?

In late November and early December, I am asked questions about how to handle the increased busy-ness at the upcoming holiday season in addition to already high stress levels.  AND usually by early December . . . the “damage has […]

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

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: […]

Shift Can Happen

Previous Belief:  If the task, appointment, priority is important, it must be scheduled at the same time every day.

Current Belief:  If the task, appointment, priority is important, it must be scheduled.

Confession time – I love my flexible schedule.  I do!  Having a schedule that differs day to day is one of the things I like about owning my own business.  I also love structure […]

Don’t Lose Sight of the Goal

Goal Setting.  Do you set goals?  If you do, are they long term?  Short term?  A combination?

At the beginning of each year I set goals.  Sometimes, I also revisit these goals around my birthday in June.

But, on a day-to-day strategic level, I don’t necessarily put much focus on my “big goals”.  AND . . . until taking the Holistic Time Coaching class taught by […]

At Last – Structured Flexibility

Hmmm . . . another real life time management dilemma from one of my clients.  “I find I’m really productive when I’m at work, but before I leave and once I get home in the late afternoon, I’m kind of all over the place.  I feel like I’m wasting 3 – 4 hours each day.”

Does this sound familiar?

Normally, my first suggestion is to schedule […]
