Tim and I weren’t always productive.

8 years ago, I was working two professional jobs, raising a toddler, building a house and juggling a mountain of volunteer work. And I was stressed!

Too many balls were in the air at the same time. I kept to-do’s in my head and my mind was disorganised and chaotic. I remember waking at 2 am with profound thoughts like; “Remember to refill the toner cartridge before it runs out.” Deep stuff! It was obvious that I had a problem.

Now meet Tim.

Tim was leading a statewide IT project, travelling regularly, raising a toddler and running a disability association in his spare time. He was overloaded with emails and his inbox was out of control. Living in his phone, he would regularly miss actions or lose attachments. Even when Tim was not at work, his mind was stuck at work. Like me, he needed a different way.

Then we got smart.

Independently from each other, we both began to ask the right questions. We devoured dozens of productivity books. Ran literature reviews. Found a productivity coach and started an executive business book club. Bit by bit, through shifting workplace habits, we found that things started to change.

Building on our diverse professional backgrounds, we now help others to do the same.
