Stop being a slave to your schedule and To Do list.
Declutter your schedule and carve out more time for what matters to you…
Decluttering your home is commonly used as a first step to less stress and more ease in life, but it’s decluttering your time that calms your body and mind and gives you real space – more than just the physical space created by a clutter-free home.
Now let me ask you a question. Do any of these sound familiar?
If you’re nodding in agreement and want to find another way, then keep reading…
One of my favourite quotes is by author Annie Dillard.
“How you spend your days is, of course, how you spend your life.”
Sit with this a moment and it’s a powerful reminder of how precious our time really is. Every day that passes is a day you won’t ever get back.
If you think back to yesterday, or last week, or last month, can you honestly say that you’re spending your days like you want to spend your life?
Most of us have bills to pay, jobs to do, errands to run, things to do and people to see but looking at your life as a whole, are you happy and fulfilled or just feeling stretched and overwhelmed?
Go from overwhelmed to organised and carve out more time for you…
This was how I felt a few years ago when I was juggling family, work, an overstuffed home and an overstuffed schedule.
Clutter comes in all shapes and sizes and it’s not just the sort that trips you up as you walk room to room.
Clutter can appear in your schedule too. If you answered yes to any of the questions that I asked you earlier then it’s likely that your time is cluttered too and it’s impacting on your life and yourself.
That’s why I created Maximise Your Time to help you declutter your time like you declutter your home. ❤
Maximise Your Time is a downloadable guide and workbook to help you manage your time so it feels like you have more of it for living your best life.
Maximise Your Time is a productivity and time management course with intentional living at its heart. If you enjoy my blog and the message of simplicity that I try to share through my website, then I think you’ll enjoy this course!
By the end of the course, my aim is for you to feel less pressure, more in control, prepared and ready.
I want to help you stop chasing your tail, losing things, running out of time, stretching yourself too thin, stressing yourself out and flopping into bed at the end of the day wiped out – only to repeat it all tomorrow.
Instead, I want to help you find calm, joy and peace. Life may come with challenges but it also comes with opportunities for fun, happiness, family, friendships, creating memories, making magic and giving yourself time and space to enjoy life (instead of running hard on that hamster wheel).
Maximise Your Time will help you carve out more time for all these things instead of squeezing them out by your squeezed-out schedule!
“The key is not to prioritise your schedule but to schedule your priorities.” (Steven Covey).
What to expect and contents…
Maximise Your Time is a downloadable PDF guide and workbook.
The course will take you on a journey through time – your time to be precise (and how you spend it!).
This section of the course includes a welcome and brief introduction to balance, simplicity and me. Just so you know who I am, what I’m passionate about and why I believe SIMPLICITY helps us create a life we love. You’ll learn about how the course will work and explore why you are taking it now, what you hope to GAIN and how you want things to be DIFFERENT. Knowing your ‘why’ will help you know ‘HOW’.
In this module we think about reasons why we get so busy, why life gets jam-packed and how to find ways to stop doing this in YOUR life. Instead of always being busy, let’s get clear on WHY you are busy and what you want to do instead. It’s a question of identifying your priorities, shifting your mindset and making decisions that are right for YOU.
Your life is made up of your days so let’s get your days working right. In this module we build up a FRAMEWORK for your day that’s realistic, flexible, practical and suits your life and what you want out of it. Let’s establish some great routines and use a PLAN to help you get organised (the key to getting more done in the time you have with less stress!).
Being busy is not the same as being productive. You can be busy all day long but still feel like you’ve achieved nothing. If time is tight or you’d rather be spending your precious time doing other things, the key to getting stuff done is by being productive. This module is all about being EFFECTIVE, not just efficient so you can get the right things done, FEEL GOOD about what you’ve achieved and then head off to doing whatever you’d rather be doing!
If you feel like your own needs and self-care are bottom of the list and you never get down that list far enough to make time for you, then this module is just for you! Modern life encourages us to do more, chase more and achieve more but there’s huge VALUE in slowing down and taking time out for yourself to relax and RECHARGE. Let’s look at ways we can deal with some of the biggest drains on your time and energy and give you some time back for yourself.
Some people love being organised and it comes naturally and others struggle. Wherever you fall on the organisation spectrum, I hope this module and the CHALLENGES will give you some ideas to organise your home, your schedule and routines and your filing and storage. Being organised will help you find things quicker, be more efficient, STOP WASTING time and possibly give you clearer, clutter-free counters!
This is a course about time management and productivity so I’m including a round-up of my favourite PRODUCTIVITY HACKS from the experts! These are little tricks to help you get MOTIVATED, stay focused, use your time wisely and choose where to concentrate your energy for the best results. This module is about frogs, tomatoes, batching, MITs and more.
This is the last module where I leave you looking back on what you’ve learnt and looking forward to what maximising your time can open up for you in the future. Clearing the clutter in your calendar is just one aspect of simplifying your life but it’s not what you’re getting rid of that counts. It’s what you can DO with that space that matters. You’ll be able to access further RESOURCES and workbooks to work through and BOOK SUGGESTIONS for further reading when you’re ready.
I want more time and I’m ready to start right now!

Your time is precious.
