"It matters not what the clocks say or the attitudes and labors of men. … We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." — Henry David Thoreau

5x More Words Written

By putting the lessons into action, I went from 3,000 words written in eight weeks to 16,000 words written in three weeks. (Plus I attended seven more taekwondo classes than usual, wrote two reports, began editing a novel, and completed a ton of other work.) The changes in my perception of time are astounding. I’m getting more done than ever, yet my time feels expansive, like I have more time than ever. I’m not even finished with the course and it has already more than paid for itself. It is transformative. I highly recommend it. – CH, writer

Changed the very fabric of my life.

Thank you so much for this course. It has been so much more than I anticipated. I was looking for a way to manage my time that WORKED and a way to get over the procrastination, it-never-seems-to-get-doneness. Got that. But what I didn’t expect was the absolute subtle shift in how I regard Time itself. It is now a container rather than a driver. And shaping a day around how I work/what I need is so obvious and basic, and yet changes the very fabric of my life. Thank you. I have enthusiastically recommended this course to friends and colleagues. I so look forward to continuing to learn from you.” – LS, seo consultant

Skills I wish I had learned in high school.

This is technically time management but in a living, breathing, what works for you way. I wish I had learned these skills in school instead of calculus. – LG, holistic health practitioner

The student becomes the master.

You are SERIOUSLY a part of the gestation of this book. I never even THOUGHT about systems until you! – TS, craft business consultant

I no longer feel out-of-control.

I am in such a better place business-wise than I was just a couple months ago and I absolutely credit Cairene. I’ve shifted from seeing and experiencing both Time and Systems as things to struggle against and instead as resources meant to support me.  And that’s a pretty huge shift! I devoted the summer to getting my business systems built and stabilized, and now I have these underpinning supports that I know will serve me as I continue to grow. My systems feel so organic and are clearly ongoing processes I’ll continue to dance with. I adore Cairene and her willingness to explore, to experiment, to keep delving. She is an inspiration and a brilliant teacher. I feel like I have such great foundations and systems in place thanks to her and I highly recommend her programs. – DW, spiritual advisor

Instead of stifled, I feel liberated by planning.

I have always dreamed of doing real planning in advance, but I usually bristle at the idea of locking myself in. In working with Cairene, instead of feeling stifled by planning, I felt liberated by it. I was able to create a map of what I want the next six months to look like that creates a feeling of freedom and spaciousness. From that map, I’m creating systems and routines that support me and my business. It’s happening organically and sustainably. It’s creating space for growth. And I’m brimming with enthusiasm for planning, which possibly has never happened before! – SW, life coach
