To date, over 3120 people have enrolled in one of my courses. Here’s what some of my previous students have said about the techniques inside Plant the Life You Want, my two-week course on taking control back your time and schedule:
“I used to forget everything. I’m not a machine, and many times I’m at work when I suddenly remember what light bulb I need to buy for the bathroom, what I need to pack two weeks later, or that I need to book an appointment with the dentist. Before, even if I got to writing my tasks on paper, I would lose it and end up travelling without a toothbrush. Since taking Livia’s course, I see my tasks through more clearly, and I now prepare my projects with a much lower margin of error.”
– Maria Csiszar
“I used to try and keep everything in my head, but chaos ruled over my life. I now have a system where I can write my things down and can expect them to more or less happen according to plan. I no longer have that [idegölő] feeling of ‘There’s just too much to do!’ It’s on paper and I can see how my whole week is structured.
I don’t agree when people say ‘Why bother scheduling when you have kids? It’s gonna turn upside down anyway.’ You can plan the time you have outside of the children — and now that I do, I can finally make the most of it.”
– Emilia Goldberg
“Livia has taught me that I need alone time, and that spending time on myself doesn’t automatically mean that I’m a selfish pig with evil plans to take over the world. This shift dramatically improved my relationship with my partner. I can now express myself and take a stance, and he appreciates this. Ever since I’ve started spending more time on myself, our relationship has become deeper and more caring.”
– Beatrix Revhelyi
“In theory I’ve known that many small steps are worth more than one large leap, but it’s a different thing to experience that in practice. Livia has shown me that I don’t need to plan everything down to the last second just to start heading towards a goal. As a result, even though I felt I wasn’t ready one bit, I was still able to start towards my life’s biggest goal.”
– Anna Baranyai
“I’m home with my kids on maternity leave, and it would be a lie to say I don’t have time. But I wasn’t getting ahead with my plans, my days would just slip away. When I learned the Time Tracker and especially the Permission Slip, they really hit home and I realized that I was limiting my free time in order to force myself to some fake standard.
I still only have one or two hours to myself every day, but I’m much more productive, I can focus on getting things done, and I can recharge. I’m finally allowing myself to be myself, and this has the added benefits that I don’t blame my kids anymore when they have a bad day, my relationship with them has improved greatly.”
– Livia Nemeth
“One of the biggest revelations for me was when I realised that working towards my goals requires my time and attention. I will never reach a goal if I don’t make time to work on it. Before this was a minor question for me – I’ll do it when I have time, when I won’t be tired. But the ‘when’ never came. That’s when your sentence ‘Time is not something you have but something you make’ really hit home.
I’ve written schedules for myself before so I didn’t get why I wasn’t getting ahead. With the Time Snapshot technique I could think through the change going on in my life right now, and based on that I could create a new schedule that has fixed times for housework and my personal goals. This helped me give a new order to my life and time doesn’t slip out of my hands anymore.”
– Györgyi H. Kertész
“I needed the Planner’s Almanac SO MUCH. Why did I think I have to keep track of every single thing across all my calendars? That’s the pressure I had on my shoulders before learning this technique. Before this, I thought planners could only be used for scheduling appointments. Now I feel like a whole new world has opened up.”
– Timea Ambrus
“I used to be a hopeless Frodo Backpackins, I had so many different notebooks and planners with me all the time, I was a laughing stock on the bus if I had to do the groceries on top of carrying my whole life with me. Based on the advice you gave me, I ditched them all for a specific ring-bound planner that fit all my needs.”
