Helping You To Create Enormous Success In Your Life

Hi it’s Peter Johnson – The Time Retriever here, and I wanted to give you an update on Time Retrievers.

To start with, it is so great to see you moving ahead after the past 2 tumultuous years of Covid, and then the massive rains over the past month.

Whilst there are still more issues to come from Covid and many people are restoring their lives after severe flooding damage, we always need to look forward to our future, whilst using our past as our learnings and using today, to take action on what we want to achieve in our future.

With the massive impact of Covid taking its toll, we decided in August last year, to take a break from promoting our business and focus on the clients we were working with and our own circumstances.

Moving Forward

In recent months, we have taken some time to evaluate what we will do going forward, and have transformed our business from solely being a direct supplier of personal and business skills development, to being a gateway connector to high quality personal and business skills development programs, from several of the worlds best known coaches and trainers.

Our aim, is to provide you with the highest quality, genuine results gaining information and education programs available today.

Going forward, our website and blog will be providing you with quality articles and videos on developing your personal and business skills, aimed at helping you to create the success you are looking for.

We hope you enjoy the information we provide and are able to take advantage of the coaching and training programs on offer.  

On A Personal Note

On a personal note, 2 of my long term hobbies, growing orchids and photography have now led to a new passion of providing a range of beautiful home, office and personal products with images of beautiful orchid flowers printed on them. 

After prompting from my wife Suzanne, I haveOrchids In Print opened an e-commerce site called Orchids In Print, where you can purchase items from an ever growing range of products, with these lovely orchid images printed on them.

You are very welcome to visit the site, view and purchase the products and register to receive our regular articles, with hints and tips on growing orchids, plus other orchid news.

Business Skills Training Program

Business Skills Training Program

Announcing our New “Business Skills Training Program”

A powerful series of short and long training courses, that enable you and your team to develop your business and day to day work skills. 

My whole purpose for putting this program together, is to help you the business owner or childcare centre owner, to be able to access material for working with the issues involved in growing and developing your business or centre.

You can go to courses and events that are one, two, or three days in length, or even do a long-term training program. But the problem is, do you get the time to work on and implement the material you learn, when you get back to the office? There is generally a lot of information that you need to work through from the event. Or, you learn something that you may not do for a number of years and you forget it.

I wanted to develop something that enables you to be able to access affordable training based on the issues you are dealing with in the moment. Something that, when the issue happens, you can go and view the material in 10 to 20 minutes and then go and deal with it there and then.

Material that is available to you immediately at The Time Retrieveryour fingertips, 24hrs a day, 365 days a year, when and where you need it.

I also want to ensure that you are working on the longer-term development of your business.

So, this program provides you the training courses as individual components, and also some of these individual courses have been grouped together as long courses, for the future planning and growth of your business.

The courses aren’t just for you, they can be used to help train your team members in a wide array of skills that are required for them to be able to work effectively and efficiently in your business.

You can use these courses in your regular meetings, where a part of the meeting is based on training your team. You can use them in specific training days or training sessions, and they can be used as individual training, where your team members can be setup with access to the course you want them to work on.

Again, my whole aim is to provide you with as much business and work skills training for you and your team, as I can. All of these skills are what I found I needed to develop in myself and my teams, to be successful in the roles I was involved in, and in the services I still provide today.

You will notice, that I mention business and childcare centres, that’s because we have been working with business and childcare owners for many years now, and you will find that although the courses in the program work with generic issues relative to both business and childcare, some of the courses may use childcare centre terminology and examples.

We are adding new courses to the program on a regular basis, at no extra cost to you. I have a long list of courses to develop and I welcome input from you, on what course you feel would be beneficial to our subscribers.

Time Retrievers - Free Weekly Coaching SessionsWhen you subscribe to this program, you will also receive a digital copy of “The Time Retriever” book, access to the free weekly “Ask The Time Retriever” webinars, where you can have your questions answered, and access to our Time Retrievers group on FaceBook.

You are welcome to subscribe to this program by clicking on the “Join today”button, or if you would like to combine this training program with being involved in a group or 1 to 1 coaching program, you can simply email me and I will be in contact with you to provide the information and talk about your business or childcare centre.

Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners – Release

Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners – Release

Would you love to get twice as much done each day and have time left over to enjoy doing the things you love to do?

 

At The Time Retriever, we have just released the most comprehensive online self paced time management coaching program available today.

The “Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners”.

This online time management coaching program will cover the skills you need to be aware of and develop, if you would love to get more control over your day.

There are 3 parts to the program;

Part 1 – Planning and Time Management

Part 2 – Personal Time Management Skills

Part 3 – People Management/Leadership Skills.

You may have done a time management workshop before and found that although you followed the training, you still could not get the things on your to do list completed, because you still kept putting things off “to a better time”, you were continually distracted by other things and the interruptions in your day just continued on as normal.

This 3 part course has been developed specifically for business owners and is a result of what I have had to learn in managing teams from 2 to over 200 and from the past 13 years of coaching business owners and teams.

It’s aim is to provide you with the skills of not only planning and doing a daily to do list, but helping you to develop your personal time management skills to stop putting things off and start reducing distractions in your day. You will also learn and develop some very key skills in people management and leadership, that will see you significantly reduce interruptions in your day.

As a result, you will start completing significantly more tasks in less time and have time left over to do the things you love to do.

This is the only time management coaching program of its type available. I have completed and reviewed many time management training programs available and none of these programs cover the range of key skills required to get your day under control, as this program does.

When you subscribe to the “Ultimate Time Management Coaching Program For Business Owners”, you will have unlimited and lifetime access to go back and review the program.

In Part 3 of the program, as we continue working with business owners, I will continue to add more lessons based around what we see and learn from these businesses. These lessons will provide you with support in day to day events that affect your ability to control your day.

In addition to the program, subscribers will receive a digital copy of the book “The Time Retriever”, free support through the program and access to the Ask The Time Retriever webinar sessions held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month and the Time Retriever Coaching Group on FaceBook.

If getting more control over your day is important to you, take advantage of our special introductory offer of $99, available until 31st July 2019. This is a saving of $100 on the regular pricing for this program.

      Start Taking Your 3 x 3’s

      Start Taking Your 3 x 3’s

      Become A Better Owner/Director By Using 3 x 3’s

       

      Is working long hours 6 or 7 days a week, the best way to get ahead?

      It seems many childcare centre owners and directors worldwide believe the only way to run and grow their centre and make it successful, is to stay focused on it, hour after hour, day by day, month after month, pretty much at the expense of everything else.

      If you find yourself in that constant spiral of having to stay working on your centre for long hours, 6 and 7 days a week, STOP.

      There are two areas you need to look at working on, one is your productivity skills and the other is to start planning to use 3 x 3s.

       

      Today I will focus on 3 x 3s.

      So, what are they?

      3 x 3s, are where you plan to take off 3 days from working and take a break, 3 times a year.

      These breaks do not include public holidays, they are an extra break that are spread throughout the year in between public holidays and your normal holidays. Their purpose is to give you a consistent and regular break from your centre throughout the year.

      The easiest way to do this, is to add an extra day to a weekend. On a 3 x 3 break, there is no work, you spend time with your family and friends, go away somewhere interesting for the weekend etc.

      Most owners and directors say “I don’t have time to do that”.

      The whole purpose here, is to do something that takes you away from work and refreshes you. You recharge your batteries and when you arrive back at work, you have higher energy levels and quite simply will be sharper, more creative and get more done.

      When you constantly push yourself for long hours, day after day, month after month, you gradually drain your energy levels. You make more mistakes, are less creative and can have a tendency to be more irritable amongst other things.

      Over the years of coaching, I have noticed that the centre owners and directors who are having greater success in their business, are always taking time off to go and have some fun with their families and friends on a regular basis.

      It doesn’t matter if you have a new centre or have a longterm highly successful centre, you will always be busy. What will make you more productive is keeping your mind sharp and your energy levels high.

      Take the challenge, plan 3 x 3s into your year and start seeing the benefits.

      Getting Your Day Under Control

      Getting Your Day Under Control

      Do you ever have a plan for your day and all of a sudden, it’s 5.00pm and you have achieved literally nothing?

      You finish your day all tired and stressed, those important things you said you needed to get done first, are still sitting on the list unchecked and you have been battered from pillar to post with constant interruptions and distractions all day. And worst of all, you know you will still struggle to try and get them done tomorrow.

      Even though you have followed all of the expert’s advice and prepared and prioritised your To Do List, you still struggle to get things done.

      That’s because, a To Do List will not get control of your day and without some crucial people skills, is for all intensive purposes, a waste of time.

      How would you feel, if you knew that tomorrow, you could reduce the amount of interruptions you get during the day, and you knew that you could spend uninterrupted time, actually focusing on that number one item on your list, not putting it off to later and doing some of the easier things first and finally getting it completed.

      • What would your day be like if you could complete everything on your To Do List and more?
      • Where would your business be, if you were able to create your action plans and complete them on time?

      The Time Retriever Productivity Coaching Program will provide you with the knowledge and help you build the skills to achieve exactly this.

      From Field Technician to Manager

      When I went from being an office equipment technician in the field to managing field service teams, I found trying to get back the control I had in my day was a struggle. I was used to being able to look at my service calls and plan the sequence I would do them in and then get on with my day.

      However, when I started managing people and creating plans to improve the service we provided, I found that I was constantly interrupted by just about everyone.

      I had some basic time management skills and would always create my To Do List each day, but because something was difficult to do, or it might take some time to do, or I didn’t like doing it, I would put them off and get the quick and easy things done, thinking, once they were done, I would have the time to get those more important activities done.

      The problem here was, that as the day went on, the interruptions and the addition of new “important things” that had to be done urgently, meant the items on the top of my list that I had already put off, by the end of the day, simply weren’t done. And I was even further behind.

      If I was to be successful at my role, things had to change. I attended time management workshops but they only provided a small part of the solution. Each time I would get back to my office with my new plan and intentions, I would still struggle to make my plan work.

      I was frustrated and looked at why this still happened.

      I found that there was more to time management and getting control of my day than just having a plan and planning my weeks and each day. I have to develop the skills needed to stop the constant interruptions to my day, I needed to develop skills to stop me from getting distracted and I needed to understand how to stop myself from procrastinating and putting things off.

      As I developed knowledge and new skills in each of these people skills areas, I found that I had more time on my hands and started to get control of my days. Not every day is perfect, but the more days I implement these skills, the more successful days I have.

      Time is the number one problem of business owners!

      Over the past thirteen years, I have coached over 162 small to medium sized businesses and the number one problem I found that 99.9% of business owners have, is time management, they struggle to have control of their day and to get the important things done. They want to grow their business, but just don’t have the time to do what is needed. Mostly, they know what to do, but just don’t have the time. I think you know what I mean.

      That’s why I have developed The Time Retriever Productivity Coaching Program. It took me years to find and develop the knowledge and skills I needed to get control of my day, and I have now packaged it into a 12 month coaching program.

      What will you do with the extra hours in your day?

      Can you imagine what it will be like when you have more free time to spend with your family and friends,to reduce your stress levels by ensuring the things you don’t like doing, or, those important but difficult things are done and out of the way.

      What will it be like when you are able to stay focused on an activity until it is finished, by being able to reduce the amount of time you procrastinate on doing things and by significantly reducing the amount of interruptions in your day, resulting in projects being completed on time?

       

      What will you do with your day, when the people around you are now able to solve their own problems and source the information they need without constantly interrupting you because of your new leadership skills. Leaving you to be able to achieve greater results through being more organised?

      • Increase your business income
      • Have more free time
      • Reduced stress levels
      • Increase your focus
      • Reduce the amount of procrastination in your day
      • Reduce interruptions in your day
      • Complete projects on time
      • Build greater leadership skills
      • Achieve greater results
      • Become more organised
      The 4 Inescapable Components Of Controlling Your Day

      The Time Retriever coaching program has been developed around the 4 Inescapable Components of Getting Control Of Your Day.

      1. Planning
      2. Time Management
      3. Self-discipline
      4. People Management Skills
      This Productivity Coaching Program is the first of its kind.

      I have spent years developing my productivity skills to enable me to get control of my day. As I started to notice that the biggest issues for virtually all business owners I spoke to, was being able to get control of their time and get everything they needed to do done, I took the time to review what I had done over many years to achieve this.

      What I noticed was, that not one of the time management courses I had done, enabled me to get control of my day. They only taught you how to do the planning process of setting goals, creating action plans and planning your week and days. They did nothing to help you with the self-discipline and people management skills.  This meant, that whilst you had this great plan for your day and good intentions to achieve the plan, you were at the mercy of constant interruptions, distractions and putting of doing things.

      In the Time Retriever Productivity Coaching Program, we will work with you through each of the 4 Inescapable Components, helping you to develop the key knowledge and skills in each component

      1. Planning
        1.  Learn how to determine why you do what you do.
        2. Create a clear Vision of what you intend to achieve.
        3. Set specific goals to achieve your vision.
        4. Determine the goals you need to achieve over the next 12 months.
        5. Break your goals down into a quarterly action plan, clarifying what you will achieve over the next 3 months and specifying the activities you will complete each week to achieve these goals.
      2. Time Management
      1. Learn how to plan your week using a default planning process, so you will feel in control of your week.
      2. Learn how to plan your day, determining what you will accomplish each day and learning the best method of prioritising your plan.
      3.  Learn and understand Brian Tracy’s concept of Eat That Frog
      3. Self-Discipline
        1.  Learn why you procrastinate and develop the skills needed to halt it.
        2. Reduce distractions, by creating a methodology around your day to help keep you focused on getting things done.
      4. People Management Skills
        1. Stop being the Zoo Keeper – Learn how to reduce the interruptions in your day by developing other people’s abilities in solving their own problems and sourcing information themselves, saving hours in your day.
        2. Learn how to communicate with people based on their learning modalities and behavioural styles, ensuring you are able to get the message across the first time, again saving hours in your day.
        3. Learn several new buiness leadership skills that are important when working with a team.

      This program is delivered in a two part process, the first being our 3 part self paced online Ultimate Time Management Coaching Program. (one for business owners and one for childcare centre owners and directors) where we step through each of the 4 Inescapable components, providing you with the knowledge and starting the skill development in each of these components.

      Habits

      The second part is the 12 monthly group coaching sessions, where we continue the knowledge and skills development and help you to create the new habits required to change how you manage your day.

      Changing your time management habits is one of the most difficult things for people to do. You have developed your habits over several years and decades and now need to stop the old ones and start creating the new ones. And it’s not that easy. However, if you want to change your current situation, you have to do it.

      That is why we have the ongoing coaching program, to help you keep accountable for making the change.
