Last week I took members of my group coaching program through a master class on time management. It wasn’t your usual take on time management strategies though. You know the type I mean; where you learn to prioritize, delegate, defer, systematize, get productive and all that. I love productivity hacks, systems, apps and such things more than most (and will be covering some of these in an upcoming class) but this one literally was about time management.
More specifically, it was about what I call time mastery; managing yourself and your perception of time. While productivity and efficiency is all about what you are doing, time mastery is more about who and how you are being. Unless we take care of the being side of things, efficiency improvements will always fall short. Have you noticed, for example, that all the tools, tricks and time management strategies we have nowadays have just made us more busy than ever?
So what’s the secret to this time wizardry? How can you make the most of all the tips and tricks and hacks you’ve picked up to make the most of your time? How can you continue to do more and achieve more in business and life without running yourself to the ground? Read more »

Today I hit a milestone and can add ‘published author’ to my bio. It took a bit longer than expected but I’ve jumped all the hurdles and finally got there. Woohoo!
My book is called Soul Operator – How You Can Be Your Own Boss and Build a Business With Purpose and is written for those who are finding self-employment frustrating or are looking for more ‘meaning’ in their business. If that sounds like you I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
It’s in Kindle format for now and will be out on paperback next month. If you’re like me and don’t have a Kindle you can still read it as Amazon have Kindle apps for tablets, iPads and the like and you can also read it on your computer.
Here’s where it’s listed on Amazon.
If you can share the news with your friends I’d be super grateful and, if you do read it, I’d love to hear your feedback.
Onwards and upwards!

Sigmund Freud’s pleasure principle isn’t exactly rocket science but it’s easy to forget. Essentially it says every action we take is an effort to feel better, either by seeking pleasure or avoiding pain. Avoiding pain usually takes priority and often takes the form of procrastination. We put something off because we perceive it as a source of pain and find something more pleasant to do instead.
When we’re working for someone else, when we aren’t the boss, sometimes that choice is pretty much made for us and procrastination isn’t always an option. Get your work in by the deadline or you’ll get a red mark on your performance review. Meet your sales quota or you won’t get a raise/bonus. Read more »
