What does it take to make it to the top? 100% commitment to setting the right priorities and an even stronger dedication to saying “no” to everything else.
It’s hard to say no and disappoint others by not taking a meeting, giving advice, or doing a favor. But it’s even worse to disappoint yourself and not reach your goals.

“I wish I would have met Will years ago! I am literally 3 times more effective and productive than I used to be.
Since working for myself I started finding it really hard to stay focused during the day and put off important tasks and procrastinated badly. Some days, I avoided work altogether. After 3 days with Will’s advice and support, I had implemented some incredibly powerful strategies, systems and processes into the way I worked. I have to say that it has completely changed the way I work now. I now produce 3 times more work, consistently
(I’ve tracked this). Beyond the personalized advice of what exactly I can do to get more work done, faster, I have found Will’s daily check-ins and accountability to be immensely helpful. I have never been more consistent with my output. And recently I’ve had a tough period, and with Will’s help, support, and strategies I’ve been able to get right back to kicking ass at work. Thank you so much Will, your doing an incredible service.”

Here’s how Willem will help you set the right priorities to take you to the top:
Productivity isn’t about smarts or willpower–it’s about thoughtfully developing a system that lets you get the most out of your time. The best system will take into consideration your current demands, personality traits and preferences, and the goals you want to achieve.
Do you work hard and go the extra mile but feel like you’re on a treadmill and can never quite catch up?
Do you struggle to stay on top of the emails, phone calls, and tasks that come at you every day?
Do you feel like you’re constantly being pulled in different directions and never able to focus on one thing at a time?
Keeping up with today’s pace can be a huge challenge – things seem to be happening faster and faster. There’s too much information to process, too many messages to answer, too many people to please, and just plain too much to do.
I know from personal experience that if you don’t have an effective approach for defining and focusing on your own priorities, other people will make you focus on theirs. Setting priorities for my day helped me structure my life so I could make meaningful progress towards my goals: since I’ve taken up this habit I’ve built a successful digital agency, grown deeper relationships with my friends, and had more free time for my family.
Starting with small steps every day, I’ll guide you towards making this habit a driving force in your life, too, by helping you to:
- Clarify the results you want in work and life
- Define the steps that will allow you to achieve those results
- Defeat perfectionism that holds you back
- Set boundaries
- Learn to say no to distractions
- Optimize your in-between time
- Hold you accountable for consistently following those steps
The end result? You’ll take back control of your time, get more done every day, and consistently make progress towards your goals.
