It started a few years ago as an idea.
Our families had just finished a delicious lunch and Tim and I were washing dishes by the kitchen sink. As usual (according to our wives) we were talking about work — although to be fair, our conversation wasn’t about work. It was about HOW we work.
With our hands in soapsuds, we talked about distraction. We talked about hyperactivity. We expressed our frustration at seeing people struggle unnecessarily at work, with the solution being more space.
So we asked our wives if they would support us in starting a business — they said yes (but insisted we finish the dishes first.)
Our passion is to help busy people make space in the digital age.
We run practical training courses to help individuals and teams improve their productivity — mastering email, organising todo lists, and achieving priorities.
We speak at conferences about digital technology and the benefits of unplugging as a habit.
We also have a book: “Spacemaker: how to unplug, unwind and think clearly in the digital age” to help you think differently about your relationship with the online world, to help you live a happier, healthier life.
