Hi I’m Mike Gardner aka ‘The Time Doctor’. I’m a Time Management and Productivity specialist, and I’m passionate about helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and independent professionals like you, free up two hours a day, so that you can work on your business rather than in it, and still have time to spend with your family, or on leisure activities.
This is achieved in a number of ways, for example, both on-line and face to face coaching and mentoring, training workshops, the provision of genuingly free resources (no email required) on my website or through participation in my Time Management Academy Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/Thetimedoctoracademy/
I had a problem most people in business who have family can relate to. I was catching up on a pile of work after I nursed a family member through a serious health scare. Happily I can report they’ve fully recovered which is the most important thing however I was feeling stressed at the amount of work that lay in front of me.
Mike Gardner’s timing (pardon the pun) couldn't of been better. He helped me beat overwhelm to get things done & to recognise my strengths in this area. The result was I have prioritised my work, met most of my deadlines & improved my productivity!
One thing I really liked was finding my peak times during the day & tailoring my actions to suit. I found the experience with Mike very beneficial & will most definitely continue to use Mike’s advice into the future. I'm very thankful for Mike from the Time Management Academy for getting me out of a jam.

So much gratitude for having a Skype session with Mike Gardner - The Time Doctor. It was amazing to speak to some on and work out strategies for my right brain thinking. Mike got me and listened to what my goals where and how to achieve them. I am now eager to get things done instead of feeling over whelmed by tasks. Anyone needing 'time advise' call upon the 'Time Doctor'

Mikes amazing Time Management Tools have assisted me greatly in my business and life in the following ways: -
1. More structure in my daily routines
2. More time to reflect and create
3. Less stress as I have a clear plan of the tasks at hand, on any given day
4. Better results in my business as I lessen the chances of procrastination, get everything achieved on my list plus more tasks some days
5. The first time I have come across a tool that actually helps right brained thinkers, this was a huge one for me as I hate to do lists
6. More time with my family and friends, free on weekends yay!!!
7. Time set aside to really go into depth with my projects and really connect to my creativity, scheduled to create every day, love this task lol
Thank you Mike for these very simple and yet powerfully effective life changing tools, I love them and recommend you highly to anyone desiring to achieve their life’s goals and manage their time whilst in the process.

Hi Mike, thank you so much for taking time with me on Saturday. I really appreciate it. I was able to open an extra hour on my schedule every day to work on one particular task. Today I was answering a client eJournal and replying here. Tomorrow I will focus on my workshop workbook tweaks to have it ready for Saturday.
I opened up my schedule by eliminating multiple bookings that were there because of recurring appointments that I didn’t want to lose for future so I just deleted them for this one instance. Now my print out is so much more clear and i have managed to secure three days this week for focus sessions.
I have listed only three things to work on today and it feels SO doable. Whew. I’ve actually been using my Moleskine Journal to keep everything chronologically because I end up using one side more than the other or having to keep up with multiple books. That’s when I employed tabs that are color coded. I look back on the tabs often for ideas I’ve captured or reviewing notes from mentor meetings and like our meeting.
Finding more things to delegate…feels so much better, and after getting a lot of work accomplished yesterday I went shopping with my oldest son and daughter. I normally would have stayed home but they needed a few things so I gave myself permission to enjoy the time with them. It was energizing. Felt better rather than normally would feel drained and done.
Feeling so much more productive and like I can do this finally without overwhelm. Once I put my schedule together for the week I met with my husband coordinating things we were balancing and affirming with him my focus on making things work better for my productivity. I think he’s always been used to me being at his beckon call when he’s done with his job but it doesn’t mean I’ve had my work time and space. Funny how all these little things come into play and can be so hidden until we wake up.
I will definitely take time to look at these resources you’ve sent. I was using Asana to manage projects but I run into it taking more time to manage or that it’s hidden from me so then I always revert to paper.
Thank you again Mike!! I am feeling so much better this week. The changes may seem like minor adjustments but they’re providing major results.

I just had a free Skype coaching session with the incredible Mike Gardner, 'The Time doctor' who I have had the pleasure of working with in an eBook project last year. Mike really listens to you and provides very helpful tips to become more productive in your work and life. He helped me to realize that I will benefit more if I do certain activities at my peak time of the day. I admit, I was trying to conform to U.S. societal standards and it was not working. I also learned time saving ideas on blogging etc. Thanks Mike, you are a serious time saver expert!
