The Focus Course

Dost Thou Love Life?

Benjamin Franklin

"Dost though love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life's made of."

Got a minute?

Actually, maybe you don’t…

You’re in meetings all day long and also expected to be responsive via email. (Seriously?) Your office culture prioritizes the “urgent” (ugh!), and you’re trapped — unable to do any deep, meaningful work on a regular basis.

You’re good at establishing a routine but have trouble sticking with it for more than a week or two.

You’re struggling to keep interruptions from throwing your plans out the window. While you’re good at planning things, when something unexpected shows up it can easily derail you, and it’s a struggle to get back on track.

Managing our time is managing our life

There are so many challenges related to managing and scheduling our time.

Here are just a few emails I’ve received from real people just like you and me…

“Because my day is already so full from my job, family, and other things, I rarely have time to schedule time to do things important to my personal life and passion projects.”

It’s hard for me to stay focused on the task at hand.”

My office expects me to be available at any time whatever their needs are. And so I can’t schedule time to do deep, focused work because they’ll frown upon me being ‘unavailable’ during that time. Therefore, I never know how productive I’ll be in a day because I never know how many interruptions there are going to be.”

“When I make creative time a priority, the outside pressures tend to cloud and stress the time.”

“I find it difficult to stick to the plan that I’ve set forth. The urgent stuff always seems to find me, no matter how determined I am to stay focused.”

“My biggest challenge is getting time to do the things I want to do. I’m always working but not doing my most important work. I’m firefighting. Some of the work I do I love. But it just keeps coming. Things are slipping and getting missed. I need to get organized and back in control of my life.”

“Despite having good intentions, a well-thought-out task management system, and a knack for creating systems others find easy to use and follow,my own time management efforts suffer repeated setbacks and failures.”


Get (and stay) in control of your time and attention.

What if you could take back all the lost time? Time that was lost to the tyranny of the urgent, to procrastination, to being interrupted, or just an habitual lack of diligence?

Alas, unless you’re Superman and you fly backwards around the earth at light speed, you’re not getting any time back.

But you can make change so your future time is not squandered.

Your time and your attention are resources that can be managed.

Diligence, focus, and deep work are all skills that can be learned.

You don’t have to be a founding father of the United States to keep from squandering your time.

A Focus on Time

Scheduling, prioritizing, and time management training

It’s time for a time management system that works. One you can stick with. One that’s not a pain in the butt.

A good system will empower you to do the things you want and need to do. It also should align with your personality. Without those two characteristics, your “system” will be little more than a burden.

Which is why this is not your typical “nerdy schedule party” type of class. Trust me — I’ve been there and it’s not pretty.

This is a class for people who dislike schedules just as much as it is for those who love them. How is that possible? Because taking ownership of your time and attention goes deeper than implementing a few quick tips for how to rock a Day Runner.™

Focus, priorities, time management, etc… these are important because they’re about loving life.

Which is why A Focus On Time promises to be equally relevant for those who adore spontaneity as well as those who thrive in administrativia.

Get the most of your time — your life — every day.

Superhero strength and bulletproof-ness are not typical results. But! What is likely is that you’ll walk away feeling like a superhero.

You’ll get clear how-to’s, guides, and tools to apply new perspective and seize control. You see, what’s awesome about A Focus on Time is the way it’s structured and how everything you need to know is right here, ready for you. This is the fastest path you’ll find for improving how you spend your time.

It’s jam-packed with strategies, tactics, and practical advice you can use right now to get control of your time.

You can bet $100 that a class on time management is going to be as value-packed, focused, and to the point as possible. The cure, my friend, is not worse than the ailment.

Don’t Squander Time

As Benjamin Franklin said, “Do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life’s made of.”

Ultimately, managing your time is unto something — it’s a means to an end. And that end is the living of life. How we spend our time is, quite literally, how we are living our life.

Diligence and focus are not personality types; they are skills that can be learned.

You have more power over your time than you think.
