Time
Time is life. We are a time management and productivity company helping people and businesses organize their lives.  Life is experienced in minutes, not in years.  We value the time of our clients and our “7 Minute” community members.  We thrive on the challenge that time cannot be managed, only individual decisions can be chosen.

Purpose
Reconnecting with your personal priorities and rediscovering your purpose in life are two of the foundational elements of The 7 Minute Life. Once you know your priorities and your purpose, you can make clear, deliberate choices about how you will structure how you will allocate your time and attention every day. We believe our purpose is: serving the world around us, using our knowledge, gifts and talents to change the world, and we believe love is the foundation of purpose.

Growing & Learning
Trees grow throughout their lives. Humans are designed to grow and learn. You can be different tomorrow than you are today. Every new idea you learn makes you a different person in a subtle, yet significant, way. We stand for the value of continual learning. Our books, blogs, webinars, planning tools, coaching, consulting, speaking events and retreats are focused on the delivering concrete ideas that will help you learn and be the person you want to become.

Innovation and Entrepreneurial Spirit
Combining science, technology, and repeatable systems – “7 Minutes” works to deliver, the Who, What, Why, How and When of living a purposeful, productive and meaningful life.  Our ideas are grounded on the idea that the human brain is plastic or changeable which is known as the science of neuroplasticity.

Happiness
“If you cannot make them laugh, you cannot make them learn!” No, it is NOT a quote by anything but we got you going, didn’t we! Happiness matters more than we acknowledge. Everything draws relevance from happiness – fulfillment, purpose, meaning, freedom…the adventure of life can be traced back to each person’s innate desire to be happy and filled with joy.

Hope
Hope is shaped by deep feelings of positive expectation. Hope is grounded in belief. Hope dares us to take the next step forward in life, it fills us with passion and a burning desire to share love and gratitude with the world around us. Hope changes lives.

Faith
The 7 Minute Life is a faith-based organization. Because of faith, you seek a better life—a life filled with purpose and meaning—and you trust that it exists. Faith compels you to look beyond yourself, to reach out to others, to give of your time, energy, and love – with faith anything is possible.

Why 7 Minutes?

What is your goal for tomorrow? How will you choose to spend the minutes of your day? What is the most important activity you will commit to accomplishing? There are 24 hours in a day, that is 1440 minutes. 1% of your day is approximately 14 minutes. The premise of The 7 Minute Life is to take “7 Minutes” in the evening and “7 Minutes” in the morning to create your written daily plan of action.

The 7 Minute Life Time Management

Step 1. There Are 24 Hours in Each day 

The 7 Minute Life is a choice. The 7 Minute Life is about choosing to consciously focus your attention for 7 Minutes in the evening and 7 Minutes in the morning to make deliberate decisions about how you will spend the minutes and hours of each day. You can be different tomorrow than you are today based on the choices you make on a daily basis. The process of moving from where you are today to where you want to require engaging your desire to learn and grow while acknowledging that today is your only opportunity to live and breathe. And act! The 7 Minute Life is about taking tiny steps forward every day, while fully experiencing every moment in the present.

Step 2. You Only Have 1440 Minutes Each Day 

Our definition of time management:

“Time Management is a process of planning the length of time you will consciously and deliberately focus your attention starting and completely finishing a specific task.” ~ Allyson Lewis

THE 7 MINUTE LIFE  – OUR TIME MANAGEMENT STRATEGY IS A SEVEN-STEP PROCESS

1. Think
2. Plan
3. Set goals
4. Prioritize and sequence activities
5. Schedule time for action
6. Develop deadlines
7. Start and completely finish each task

Step 3. 1% of 1440 Minutes is Approximately 14 Minutes 

Taking 7 Minutes in the evening and 7 Minutes in the morning to decide how you will spend the minutes of your day. Time is a finite and limited resource. As a time management training and coaching company, we help individuals, teams, non-profit organizations, and businesses improve their time management, team communication, goal setting, and strategic business planning. Through the use of our proprietary tools you can:

  • Clarify what you need to accomplish
  • Prioritize your tasks
  • Implement repeatable processes and project management systems
  • Focus your attention on accomplishing 5 high-value activities before 11 o’clock
  • Do what you said you would do

Step 4. Create your Daily Written Plan of Action 

To change your life, you must tell your brain what to allow to filter into your conscious awareness. You must then choose what you will devote your energy and attention to. To create a conscious existence, you must choose well. Every choice you make impacts your life. You must consciously choose between working on a low-value activity or a high-value activity. You need a written daily plan of action to prioritize, organize, and simplify your life at work and at home. You must choose between living in chaos and working from a written daily plan of action.
