What You Can Learn From My Journey

I’m often asked, “What exactly is a time strategy visionary?”  Which is often followed by, “How did you become one?”

Traci McBride of TeeMcBee Image Consulting recently asked this question.  My answer starts about 20 seconds into the video.

I realized early in my professional life that I didn’t “fit” into a traditional job.  I love to help clients have “ah-ha” moments (hence my early career […]

The Real Truth Behind One Size Fits All

I recently took my 13 year old nephew to the Cleveland Indians game.  Game time was 7:05 pm, however gates opened at 4:30 pm.  We arrived at 4:20 pm.  Why so early you ask?  Because the first 10,000 fans received a 1902 replica jersey.  My nephew couldn’t wait to get his jersey.  We planned to arrive before the gates opened to ensure he was […]

Is This Why You Aren’t Succeeding With Accomplishing Your Priorities?

Like many of my clients, Berry is a complex individual balancing many roles  . . .

How “Berry” Tackled Creating Change by Using Routines

I’m always curious around what strategies and techniques are my clients finding the most helpful.

Which changes are they the most excited about? 
How has their quality of life improved? 

But I also want to know what isn’t working.

What stumbling blocks have they ran into since we last worked together? 
What old habits have they fallen back into?  (Backsliding is common when creating change!)

Some of the […]

The Dolly Parton Approach to Time Management

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
– Dolly Parton.
This is one of my favorite quotes – and I really can apply it to many, many, many situations!

For today . . .

RAIN = PLANNING

RAINBOW = STRESS FREE SCHEDULE 

When you build in 10 – 15 minutes each day, and an hour at the end of the week to […]

How to Focus on Your Goals Even if Your Neighbors, the Weather, and Your Spouse are Distracting You

Dear SystemSavvy,
I find that I am easily distracted lately.  My neighbors stop over, my husband is home more, the weather is nice . . .  My new sales year just started and I already feel behind on my goals.  How can I enjoy the best parts of summer, yet still work my business?
Sincerely,
Ms. Falling Behind

 

 

Dear Ms. Behind,

Finding balance can be a difficult pursuit – […]
