Welcome to Thoughts On What Matters (TOWM). A place for down-to-earth people trying their hardest to make their life + work matter. Here you can learn simple ways to manipulate time so you're able to focus on the things that really matter to you.
If you've found your way here, it's likely you share similar values to others in the TOWM community. Your mind is set on living not only for yourself, but for others and the world.
Hi there, I'm Katie Heath.
I'm genuinely happy that you're here. Like me, you may be at a time in your life where you want to make sure you're living your life with purpose.
Or to put it more bluntly, you want to make sure you're not wasting time doing the wrong stuff. If that sounds like you, you're in the right place.
For years, I've had friends and colleagues refer to me as their personal or business sounding board - part coach, part advisor. It's also been an integral component of the positions I've held. I get excited to help others and can't help myself from giving suggestions and ideas for their work and life.
I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it.
The site can help you with the common struggles many of us face
I'm continuously researching and learning about ways to answer these burning questions:
- How can I do more that matters in such a busy world?
- What simple strategies are available to help me have more focus and stop feeling overwhelmed?
- What resources and people are out there who can help with my personal development.
What I've found in this search is that I'm not alone. There are a stack of like-minded people sharing many of the same struggles.
Here, you can learn simple strategies and ideas to manipulate time
The strategies and ideas you'll find here aren't rocket science. Sure, they might get you thinking and questioning your habits.
You may also find yourself saying ' I could never do that'. But when you're ready to give them a try, you'll find you can start implementing them straight away - with no need for expensive or complicated apps or tools.
My topic areas fall into the categories of Productivity, Simplifying Life, Life + Family, Evernote and Blogging. On occasion I'll write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories. Begin reading about them on my Start Here page.
So here's to giving it our best shot at spending time doing what matters most to us
I hope this blog challenges, inspires, and motivates you to take the time to think about what really matters in your life.
Thanks and virtual hugs.
