Something I come up against with clients and Just Start Now members every week is how to be more structured and disciplined with time when working for yourself. Somehow even though you were (or are) the ‘productive’ one in a corporate environment, organising yourself in your own business seems impossible. Days or weeks drift by and the important stuff just isn’t getting done… why is that?!

Cue Louisa Daubney, the Time Design Coach. Having experienced this exact shift herself after working in the charity sectory for years, Louisa now dedicates herself to helping other business owners and solopreners feel fulfilled in their day and ensure self-care is at the heart of what gets done.

In this episode we talk about: 
  • Time design vs. Time management. What’s the difference and do we really need to be more ‘productive’ anyway?
  • The importance of setting the right kind of goals – the sort that you actually want to check in on, rather than push to the back of a drawer and never look at again after writing!
  • Creating ‘water cooler’ moments for yourself even if you work alone and the science behind working in bursts of time
  • Building habits into your day so there’s less overthinking and more ease with your actions
  • Louisa’s 3 top tips for structuring your day to get more done from your priority list
