  • Students will need a willingness to change, to handle their to do lists in a different way. The system is simple.

Many people struggle every single day of every single year with to do lists.

They take action:

  • Some people stomp on them out of sheer frustration.
  • Others lose them
  • Some ignore their lists
  • Some don't even bother making a list any more because it's way too stressful to see an ever-ending stream of all that has to be done
  • Some avoid to do lists altogether and hope their brain will remember to do what is necessary
  • Some have learned to hate the words, "to do list".

What's the point? A to do list for most people is just an endless pit of things that chew up your time and make us feel bad with only small "glimmers" of excitement.

The reward: more things to add to the already jammed to do list!

This system is a unique system I've designed and taught to many people in my workshops. People have used this simple little system to help them get control over their to do list and control over their time and their lives.

People in my workshops were astonished by its powerful simplicity. In fact, most thought it was way too simple except for one little thing - they tried it. They liked it. And people were thrilled to finally get a sense of achievement by accomplishing the tasks on their to do lists.


Because there was "oomph" behind the to dos. Finally, they understood the realities of human existence and why they were fighting a losing battle doing what they were doing

In one day, you can do the course. There are PDFs to work from, each building on the previous exercise. While involved in completing the exercises, the learner will notice changes in their thinking and attitudes. There will be "aha" moments and there will be moments of "why didn't I think of that?".

By the end of the course, you'll have a much better sense of how to construct your to do lists in a sane and rational way. You'll come to realizations which help you build a much better tomorrow, feeling good about your day every day.

Who is the target audience?
  • People who are frustrated and feeling empty because they are doing a lot but feeling they are not accomplishing much
  • People with to do lists that never seem to end
  • People who do anything but tackle their to do list

Sometimes we are not aware of what holds us back from change. Here's an overview of some possibilities which you may be experiencing.

I love to help people through teaching. I'm thrilled when people "get it" and their lives, in some small way, are made better as a result..

Currently, I have my own business, On Contract Only, offering services in facilitating, training, consulting and writing.

I have presented workshops for small business, non-profits and business groups on a variety of topics using the knowledge I've acquired during my eclectic career in management at senior levels in corporations, non-profits and governments. The range of enterprises has included: coaching, personal development, mining, manufacturing, import and export, real estate, recreation, performing arts, visual arts, advanced education, health, e-commerce, and small business.

I'm a lifelong learner and enjoy variety from geophysics to cooking. And I love meeting and communicating with people. Computers and the internet have been like a miracle to me - what an amazing development in human existence wherein people can connect from all over the world - instantly - and share thoughts, ideas and challenge what is for what could be.
