The Building Blocks to a More Productive Life

Many of us have struggled with keeping with a time management system. We can get overwhelmed by traditional methods that are not optimized for how our hyper-creative and nonlinear brain works.

This workshop provides a different approach to time management — one that can feel much more intuitive  making your scheduling, tracking action items, and note-taking far more enjoyable and effective.

What We'll Cover

During this online workshop, we’ll cover the many aspects of building and optimizing your time management system. Topics include:

  • Why traditional time management techniques are difficult for us to follow
  • How to approach time management from an ADHD / Neurodivergent perspective
  • Choosing whether digital, paper-based, or a hybrid approach is best for you
  • Note-taking strategies to ensure you easily capture ideas, actions, and scheduled items
  • The importance of knowing when to schedule challenging / mundane tasks
  • and much more!


Because we all have our preferences, we will explore how to build a time management system that is exclusively paper-based, digitally based, or a hybrid of the two. This way, you can choose which method works best for you.


One of the biggest (and often least addressed) challenges to building a stable time management system relates to how stress and anxiety can affect our ability to stay on task. We will explore specific methods to process your anxiety before you get lost in distraction.


Daily and weekly planning are essential for consciously creating the life we want. If we don’t plan, we automatically go into reaction. We will discuss a step-by-step approach to planning both your day, as well as your upcoming week to ensure you are more productive and less stressed.

A Note from Michael & Questa

Since 2016, we’ve had the great privilege of leading the Alive! Online Workshop twice a year, with the Time Management session often being the most popular

This year, we decided to split up the typical one month course into stand-alone workshops to allow more people to attend. We’re very excited to share this in-depth Time Management workshop with a larger audience.

Without exception, each of our online workshops are filled with an amazingly diverse, talented, and creative group of individuals from all parts of the globe — continually reminding us what an amazing community we have.

It is our honor to share this offering with you.

I hope you can join us!

Michael & Questa.

What People Are Saying

"Michael's unique coaching provided vital guidance at a time when my other resources were failing. With his help I was able to clarify my needs and thoughts in order to create effective goals and take the daily steps to achieve them. He provides compassion, knowledge, and support, but more importantly helps people to realize what it is that they need, and to receive it all with open arms."

The skills I learned in this workshop, without a doubt, were a huge part of solving my life's puzzle. I wish I had found this workshop (and the podcast) earlier in life, but I'm extremely grateful I found it when I did!"
