My Mission

If you’re tired of waking up feeling behind, I have a message for you: You are worth more than your to-do list.

You can stop the glorification of busy-ness to find real presence and joy in your work. You can bring your full human to work to banish burnout and start living on purposeYou can manage your demanding life roles with less stress to find sustainable productivity.

Drawing on my background as a strategy consultant to Fortune 500 companies and inspiring nonprofits, my personal struggle with follow-through sparked a journey to uncover sustainable personal strategies for managing myself.

Whether you have zero or 100 goals, my mission is to help creatives install systems of habit and personal organization to manage themselves. By applying time-tested strategic principles and cutting-edge research in behavioral science, my students discover and implement the best system to organize their life… for life.

There is no quick fix or easy pancea – the research and best practices shared on this blog serve as continual reminders that productivity is a lifelong practice. Thank you for joining me in this journey, and I can’t wait to see what bright ideas you’ll bring into the world.

I’m Lieve (rhymes with diva) and I started this blog because planning, goal-setting and follow through don’t come naturally to me. Like a heart beats, our brains constantly come-up with new ideas… and for years my creative mind lacked simple systems to organize and execute those hundreds of creative projects. After literally pulling my hair, I became officially obsessed with researching and sharing strategies for getting great ideas out of my head and into action.  

If you were here with me now, we’d swap stories over a hot cup of bulletproof coffee while walking along Lake Michigan. In the meantime I’m grateful you’re here learning alongside me on the blog. I can’t wait to learn more about your creative dreams – and your plan to bring them to life.
