Your Focus Host

👋 Hello. My name is Shawn and I am honored to be your host and guide for all things Focus, Time Management, and getting out of overwhelm.

For nearly 20 years, I have been learning and teaching about creativity, diligence, and focus. I’ve spoken about these topics at conferences and workshops; I've taught them to private groups and one-on-one clients; and my online courses have helped tens of thousands of people.

Between The Sweet Setup and The Focus Course, my team and I have helped tens of thousands of folks improve their focus and productivity, do their best creative work, and thrive in the midst of life's tensions.

Are You Doing it Wrong?

Over the years, working with thousands of people, we’ve discovered that there are four main obstacles people face when it comes to being focused, productive, and creative.

Because the symptoms of these different obstacles can sometimes look similar, oftentimes when people try to treat the symptom they don’t get to the actual problem.

This is why so much productivity advice unknowingly focuses on the wrong thing.

Discussions around time management and productivity often focus on how you can get more things done in less time. And while this is great, it has unfortunately elevated efficiency as the single most-important trait in being productive.

And yet, despite all the “information” that’s out there, so many people end their week feeling frustrated, tired, and behind on their tasks.

With the Focus Assessment, you’ll find out what’s holding you back and what you can do about it. After you’ve taken the quiz, you’ll get your results right away along with a recommendation for your own Focus Pathway.
