Your Secret Superpower

How Drawing Your Dreams Can Change Your Life

In my last blog, I shared with you that I made a discovery that helped me move from running on empty to stress free and productive. I promised I would tell you more, so here we are!

At the time I had already tried “all the things.”

I had spent a decade studying leadership, psychology, and personal development. I knew what to do, yet I still struggled to cut through the noise and focus so I could make the right things happen.

Finally, when I discovered this secret superpower skill, all of the other pieces fit together, and I could finally achieve my goals in a distracting world.

This worked for me and my creative mind.

Would you like to know what my discovery was?

Of course you do–or else you wouldn’t be on my blog!

I love to share this story.

Here it goes.

Through an educated experiment…

I discovered…

the secret of visual thinking.

Or more simply put…

The secret of drawing your dreams–and even your goals.

Drawing your dreams is like creating a visual of your visualization.

And unlike most life-changing things, you CAN try this at home!

The first time I looked at a complex project and compared it with my sketch, I was shocked. I had trialed my experiment on a complex organization project in an overpacked garage on a Saturday with 3 kids 4 and under.

There were distractions galore!

And, I finished it.

The end result looked just like my picture!

Drawing your daily goals can help you double down your focus and get better results.* (*Results vary.)

Now, I didn’t become more disciplined, take medication, or have a coach beside me.

I simply engaged a different part of my brain by drawing…(and doing one or two other things I teach in my planners and courses.)

BUT, drawing my goals is the cornerstone.

This foundational change made all of the difference for me.

Prior to this experiment, I had read my favorite time management book five times, but now using visual thinking I could put what I knew into action in a way that worked for my unique mind.

And you can too!**

Engaging the visual thinking part of your creative mind can help you* to better clarity what matters most to you, to help you fight distraction, and to help you persevere to the end of complex tasks so you can achieve your goals

It’s a lot like visualization that professional athletes use; however, drawing your goals is like doubling down on visualization. It’s visualizing your vision by making a visual representation of it. : )

One of you told me, “No matter how busy my week is, whatever I draw on my Think Time gets done!”*

Some research suggests keeping your drawing in front of you can increase your ability to achieve your goals by up to 42%!

Don’t worry. Be happy. Increase your chance of achieving your goals by drawing them.


Now, you may be thinking…

“That is too simple. You don’t understand my life. There is no way drawing my goals will help me. My struggle is real.”

I hear you. I don’t know your life, your struggles, nor your capacity. I only know what the research, my personal experience, and other Think Time users have told me.

After listening to you guys for 6 years telling me stories of overcoming obstacles to your dreams and goals using Think Time Planner…today I am more convinced than ever.

Think Time works.

Think Time works.

Think Time works.

Just this week, I heard how one of you completed writing an entire new curriculum for a Bible study. You know how hard crossing the finish line of a huge project is! The author (a homeschooling mom of four kids, including a 6 month old) said, “I finished my (huge) project because of Think Time Planner!”*

Think Time Planner is the first whole brain planner to help you engage drawing and creative thinking to boost your productivity.

I love hearing YOUR success stories when you dream-plan using the techniques I teach in my planners and courses.

In my next blog, I will share an important difference between us and “them” (the other people who encourage you to pursue your dreams.) According to the research, this technique can actually make the difference between success and failure. And, it is surprising. Keep your eyes open for your e-mail next Thursday. You won’t want to miss it.

Until then, be sure you are using your Think Time Planner this week to get clarity, find time, and get results, so your dreams and goals can happen…so you can do what only you can do and be who only you can be.

More than ever before, this world needs what you have to offer.

Where Did the Time Go?

Are you looking back and wondering where all of your time went?

As you look forward to this next year, do you feel the confidence that you can set goals and achieve them?

No matter how crazy the world is or how crazy your life is, wouldn’t it be great to actually feel the confidence that you have a say in what goes onto your calendar and into your life?

To actually have a strategy to find time for what you want most?

Could there be help for me? I am not organized. I am terrible with time.

I can imagine it sounds too good to be true if you haven’t experienced it yet.






Even for those of us who don’t have a track record of being organized or productive…there is an answer.

Just 7 years ago, I lacked the confidence that I could create a goal and bring it to pass.

I binge-read time management books, and they helped a little, but I just could not get the good stuff into my life.

I have always been passionate about dreaming big–but I did not have the practical skills to bring these dreams into my day to day life.

I would run from thing to thing–expending a ton of energy but not getting results. I would stress myself out and others as well…but, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to gain traction.

But, then, I made a discovery that changed everything for me.

With this strategy, and everything else remaining the same, I could all of a sudden focus and stay on task.

So, today, I no longer feel discouraged about my dreams, but rather I feel confident and capable as I pursue them.

Because of this discovery, I now have a new past with a track record of successes that have gradually re-built my confidence.

Today, instead of feeling defeated and deflated, I feel optimistic and hopeful about the future.

…which naturally makes me want to dream more dreams…and go after them.

I’ll tell you more about what happened in the next e-mail.

Talk soon,


Let’s Talk About Overcommitment & Overwhelm

You want to have the time, so you say, “Yes!”

You commit…for just this one sports season…or just this one school year…or just to get our foot in the door

And all of these “just this ones” string together…

and you all of a sudden have a lot on your plate…

You may be feeling this right now as the new school year has kicked off.

“What have I gotten myself into?” ??‍♀️

“Why did I think I could do all of this?” ?

Thankfully, there is a way out.

When you take time to think-time, you use your whole brain to quickly and clearly help you see into the future so you can prevent overcommitment and overwhelm.

  1. You sketch a picture of your wild success. This sketch helps your visual, creative mind to “see” into the future better than a list or a schedule. You can see clearly the end result you want most.
  2. You mindmap “all the things.” Getting all of the options on paper can show you how many things you really want to do. It’s a lot! The reality often is that it is impossible to “do it all” without sacrificing something or someone that matters most. Once you see the tradeoff clearly, you realize something has to give. Now you are ready to prioritize.

It’s impossible to “do it all” without sacrificing something or someone who matters most.

3. Then, with your vision on the left and all of the options on the right, you choose the few things that align with your vision–what matters most to you.

As it turns out, getting clear on what is most important is most important.

Getting clear on what is most important is most important.

Christine wilson

When you have clarity on what is most important, the excess starts to show itself for what it really is–less important.

When you take time to think-time, you say “no” confidently, because when you say “no” to something, you are really saying “yes” to what you want even more.

When you live aligned with your big “yeses,” you increase your opportunity to experience that “just-right” feeling of peaceful productivity and prevent that dreaded feeling of overwhelm.

Don’t waste another season overcommitted and overwhelmed.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Simply #taketimetothinktime and leave overwhelm behind.
