We’ve all felt it. That sense of overwhelm as you sit in front of your laptop confronted by a cluttered desktop, a to-do list that never ends, an inbox with too many messages for one person to process. With all this information at our fingertips, it is sometimes hard to know where to start…
This is a feeling that Richard Wolfe, author of Speedmailing, knows all too well. That’s why he developed the Parking Skills framework: a variety of methods and habits designed to save you time and energy every day; practical solutions to minimize digital distraction, so that you can focus on getting the important stuff done.
Organize your digital information so that you can find what you need when you need it. Be purposeful – don’t organize for the sake of it!
Distinguish between what needs to be done now, what can be done later and what can go on the scrapheap.
Set your intentions, manage external distractions and get the important stuff done, one task at a time.
Cultivate an awareness of how you’re investing your time and energy. Does this task serve the project I’m working on? Does that project align with my goals? Do those goals still resonate deeply with me?
Ideal for larger groups, we conduct lectures and talks in a variety of settings, whether it's over a team lunch, at a town hall meeting, or at an industry conference.
These 1-2 hour talks are more theory oriented, aimed at opening people's eyes to the importance of leading a healthy digital lifestyle, while detailing the fundamental principles that will help you get there.
Our most popular offering, these group sessions are ideal for teams of up to 10 who want to spend less time sifting through endless digital information and more time collaborating.
Conducted over half a day or a full day, your team will leave this hands-on, interactive training with practical, ready-to-use tips and tricks designed to streamline digital processes and boost workflow.
Our 1-on-1 coaching sessions are ideal for individuals (usually executives, but open to all) seeking to cut down digital distraction and get more out of the day.
This is a bespoke service, both in terms of time frame and focus. You will have an introductory session with your digital lifestyle coach, who will then draw up a training program tailored to your specific needs and goals.
This is an essential workshop for the digital age. Being more mindful about how I engage with my tech devices saves me time and energy daily. Not only am I more productive, I now find myself approaching tasks with a much clearer mind. The power of Richard's approach lies in its simplicity and practicality.
As someone with over 15 years’ experience as a project manager, I felt that I already had an efficient and robust way of working for managing mail, tasks and meetings. While other generic trainings have always had little to no benefit, during the one-on-one coaching session with Richard, we explored how the theory could be put into practice in my own situation, taking into account my current process, company application preferences and security constraints. I left the training, with only a few small changes to make, but these details really made a difference to both productivity as well as being in control.
