How many days do you leave work feeling like you accomplished little to none of what you intended? Do you ever look at your calendar and feel like you never have a moment to simply breathe? Or perhaps your calendar is far more empty than it should be because your “to-do” list is scattered between the five sticky notes on your desk and your napkin from lunch which has now disappeared.

If any of these statements sound familiar, I have good news!


You are by no means alone in this struggle.

Many people struggle to organize their lives and master their personal schedules.

      While it is possible that no one actually claims the title of “having life figured out,” I have found that minimizing stress and maximizing my time is achievable by adopting several habits into my daily routine.

Things such as:

  • Eliminating distractions
  • Maintaining a single running task list
  • Planning time for “deep work”
  • Prioritizing tasks

       Kafferlin Strategies has been working alongside organizations for many years, encouraging them to take steps to implement these ideas into their routines, however, it is often difficult to turn a good idea into a lasting habit without outside help – especially for those who find themselves near the top of their organization without much accountability.

     While it is easy to make a commitment to yourself to do better – staying connected to those promises becomes very difficult when there is no community around you to encourage you forward. As Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr, a United States Army General put it:

“The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.”


     For this reason, we decided it was time for Kafferlin Strategies to take things a step further by offering individualized coaching sessions designed to help actually establish and build these concepts into healthy habits.


We thereby welcome Creaplan Consulting!

     Creaplan Consulting is a unique program designed to help clients build healthy work habits into their daily lives. With their professional coaching and weekly accountability, organization leaders can finally stop saying they “aught to” do something and instead actually do it.


     Through our new partnership with Creaplan Consulting, clients have the opportunity to work with a member of Kafferlin Strategies in weekly 1-on-1 meetings designed to help you build and maintain professional habits that will increase your effectiveness and help to reduce work-related stress.

    Each week you will be given simple action steps and each consecutive meeting offers built-in accountability regarding your success in implementing the habits discussed in each of the previous sessions.

    The program is designed to span 12 weeks – allowing enough time to explain each habit in detail, focus on why it is important, and most importantly help you firmly establish their practical use in your everyday life.

“A habit cannot be tossed out the window; it must be coaxed down the stairs a step at a time” (Mark Twain)
