Time Management for Creative People – Free E-book

Writing my own poetry and books, and coaching hundreds of creative professionals over the years has taught me a lot about what it takes to get original work done in the midst of the demands and distractions of the 21st century workplace.

I’ve boiled down what I’ve learned into a free ebook, Time Management for Creative People, which you are welcome to download and share with your friends and contacts.

Time Management for Creative People

The ebook has been downloaded over 100,000 times, and I’ve received enthusiastic feedback from people all over the world who tell me it’s transformed their working habits and helped them achieve their artistic and professional goals.

It’s full of practical advice for creatives, including:

  • Finding the method in your creative madness
  • Identifying and prioritising your most important work
  • Getting in the right state of mind for focused work
  • How to minimise interruptions and distractions
  • Managing e-mail effectively
  • How to remember — and fulfil — all your important commitments

“A really well done 29-page download that provides practical time management and productivity tips tailored specifically for those performing creative work.'”
Brian Clark, Copyblogger

“Even if you don’t consider yourself a creative person, the ebook is chocked full of useful tips.”
Kyle Potts, Lifehacker

A big thank you to Cat Wentworth and Neil Tortorella for prompting me to write the material and hosting it as a series on Business of Design Online.
