Focusing on What's Important is Tough

Living in a world of multiple and ever-changing priorities, with constant interruptions and distractions, it's easy to feel:


When too many priorities need to be juggled.

Busy but not effective

Putting in the hours, eating into personal time, but with no true sense of achievement.

Distracted and unfocused

Interruptions and distractions are constant and pervasive in today’s world, preventing focus and productivity when it matters.

Time Management Magic

Time Management Magic is a productivity system designed to help you identify the goals that matter to you most.

It instills the self-discipline of focus and prioritisation along with practical strategies that enable you to take back control of your time and your life.

Time Management Magic is based on the system developed by Lee Cockerell for the Disney Institute, when he was the Executive Vice-President of the Walt Disney World® Resort. It is still taught today in organisations all over the world.

It’s not about the hours you put in. It’s about what you put into your hours.

Take Control of your Time

Time Management Magic is not about cramming more into your to-do list. It’s about shifting your focus to what really matters.

Once you know the right things to work on, use the Time Management Magic system to focus on getting the most important things done.

Identifying activities

Identifying specific activities that you can do to manage your life more effectively.

Implement the 60:30:10 Productivity Code

Make quarterly, weekly and daily planning a routine to help you focus on what matters most.

Master the detail

Becoming a disciplined master of detail and follow-up to ensure things get done.

Delegate and develop

The long-term time management strategy to delegate to others, developing their skills and capabilities.

If you want something different, you have to do something different.

The Productivity Spells

Learn five productivity strategies that will make a material impact on how you succeed in your personal and professional life.

The clarity spell

Get clear on what matters most among the whirlwind of your daily life. What are the hard choices that you often put off until it’s too late?

The planning spell

Clarity will only get you so far; you need a plan to get you started and on track to achieving your most important goals. We explore the power of the 60:30:10 Productivity Code, the secret ingredient that’s critical to delivering your most important objectives.

The technology spell

Today’s tools should make it easier than ever to be productive in your personal and professional life. And yet these same tools can drain your productivity levels. We share best practices to help you take control by learning when and how to best utilise these tools.

The meeting spell

Unproductive and ineffective meetings must rank among the most serious productivity drags. Learn how to prepare, facilitate and follow-up on meetings so that they make a difference to you and others.

The delegation spell

Nothing boosts long-term productivity more than developing others to take ownership for tasks, activities and projects. You get time back and they get to grow too, but to do so you must delegate effectively and with the right level of autonomy.
