Time Management to Align Your Life With Your Priorities

Many people I work with think that the only way to get ahead is to work harder. They put in longer hours at the office and regularly bring their work home often at the expense of their family and health.

But there is a better way.

For the last 10 years I have worked with people who have one thing in common. They want to get more out of their time and their life. They often feel overwhelmed and are tired of working hard and not accomplishing what they had set their minds to.

I often have people say to me "Kell, I am working hard but at the end of the day I haven't accomplished what I set out to do".

When I go all CSI-like on their time, each day they typically:

  • spend 2-3 hours reading and responding to emails, 
  • deal with up to 20 trivial low value interruptions, 
  • respond to seemingly urgent requests,
  • attend too many unproductive meetings, 
  • spend 45 minutes a day looking for stuff they already have,
  • multiple handle their email, tasks, and documents
  • procrastinate on their big ticket items.

Much of their time is being pulled toward what is reactive and low value...no wonder they are frustrated!

This website provides you with practical tools that to get more of the right things done.

Organizing is more than having a spot for everything and everything in the right spot. It starts with a vision of what you want your life to be life.
