How To Be a Time Lord
No one knows time-management systems like people who struggle to manage their time.
We’re the ones with Getting Things Done on our bookshelf and Pomodoro apps on our phones. We know time-blocking and Asana and why you’re supposed to Eat That Frog. We have purchased all the planners and installed all the software and subscribed to way too many blogs.
What we still don’t know is why none of this has fucking worked.
Some of us don’t know why we create elaborate plans and beautiful schedules and colour-coded-everything and then just keep not doing any of it.
Some of us don’t know how we can spend an entire day bushwhacking through our to-do list and at the end still feel like we’ve not done nearly enough.
Some of us are both of these people depending on which day of the week it is.
And that’s because the real problem isn’t about knowing what to do or what tools or systems or software to use. It’s about how we understand our relationship to time.
Specifically, it’s about the deeply unhelpful way we’ve been taught to think about OURSELVES in relation to time, and how that plays out in everything related to scheduling, prioritizing and productivity.
In this special workshop, I’m going explain exactly what this view of ourselves is, why it’s everywhere in time-management advice, and how it derails our efforts to escape the constant struggle of endless lists, lost time and false starts.
Then I’ll share a radically different way to understand our relationship to time, which makes it possible to actually replace the endless wheel-spinning with mastery, clarity and momentum.
I call it learning to be a Time Lord. It’s a playful name on purpose—because this method actually creates a kind of lightness and zest totally missing from all our usual experiences of time-management.
It’s true that you won’t actually be able to time-travel after this workshop—friends who are fans of Dr. Who have told me I should make this clear—but you will learn an approach to time so powerful it can feel like magic.
You’ll also get a practical guide and instructions to keep so you can get started adopting this new approach immediately, as well as a chance to ask questions and volunteer for live coaching on the call.
This workshop is ordinarily only available as part of my small-group programme, but I’m offering it for free for members of my list next week.
I'm hosting the exact same workshop twice, to ensure that people have a decent chance of being able to attend live. Fill in this brief form, and you'll receive a zoom invite for time you have selected. You'll also have chance to indicate on the form whether you're interested in volunteering to be coached live.
On the day, I ask that you show up with a piece of paper and some kind of writing implement, in as much of a quiet environment as is available.
When: 13 & 14 June 2023, 12 pm NYC/5 pm London
Investment: 60 minutes of your time
Sign up: Fill in this brief form. Be sure to let me know if you're interested in being coached live on the call!
Answers to frequently asked questions are below. Any others can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I don't want to be coached in front of other people or be on camera?
Coaching is volunteer only! If you're not interested, just don't volunteer. You can keep your camera and mic off the whole time if you'd like.
Is it really free?
It costs 60 minutes of your time, and I will talk for 5 minutes about my small-group programme, Blazing Talents. But there is no monetary charge!
Why is it free?
Because I want to share tools and coaching with people who get something out of my writing but aren't able to work with me as a coach. Because I want the people who can really benefit from it to get a taste of why learning and getting coached in a group is so powerful. And because I love teaching this shit.
Can I attend both times the workshop is held?
Sure, you're welcome to attend both times, though if I coach you I will only do so in one workshop. You will need to book separately for each session.
What if I hate swearing?
I swear on my website and in my writing because I swear in person, and I want to connect with people who are the right fit for my way of working. If you find swearing alienating, I may not be the coach or writer for you. But there are lots of other people out there who don't speak the way I do who can help. Keep looking!
