Unfortunately, we have endured decades of our time being controlled by others, being told where and when to be somewhere. This is Level 1 Time and for most people takes up most of their 168 hours per week.
But we must understand how to use our time for the things that matter for our future – like Planning, Money Management, Investing and strengthening Relationships – and that they will only happen if and when we choose to do them. These are Level 3 Time activities and usually have the least priority in our life; the consequences of missing these activities are not immediate and sometimes take years or decades to appear.
The 12 Week Time Transformation program is a comprehensive and structured guide designed to help individuals master time management, productivity and goal achievement.
This program is meticulously crafted to empower users to make the most of their time, maximise productivity and achieve their personal and professional goals.
My biggest challenge was time as I was always busy and definitely struggled with time that was not booked into my calendar and committed to other people; like time for me, time for my health, time for my husband (and now family).
Wow wow! I loved the whole 12 weeks! 12 weeks on Time is just the tip of the iceberg at Design a Decade. THANK YOU for the privilege of taking this journey with you!
The biggest benefit has been empowerment – to make positive decisions about myself, my future and my son's future. It actually gives me a sense of peace.
The program was a reality check – it gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate why I do what I do. And it also equipped me with systems that I can use to plan and create a balance in the important areas of my life, as I journey my way to my desired end goal.
Chris Freeman is the Founder and Lead Coach of the Design a Decade Program.
Chris realised in his early 20’s that there were better ways to create the life he wanted than working for wages. With the zest of youth he gave everything a go from a comfortable job at Qantas, to a life of self employment that started with a lawn mowing business and then progressed through several restaurants and multiple real estate businesses.
Beren is a Design a Decade Mentor and Managing Partner.

Weekly learnings empower you to take control of your time.
Understand why Time is an incredibly slippery commodity and why almost no one has absolute control of it.
Our time can be sucked up by saying 'yes' too quickly to other people's requests for our time.
Storing all the things we need to do and remember in our heads clouds our creativity and our ability to handle the unexpected.
Your calendar is more than merely an organiser for what needs to get done; it's the primary tool for helping you become who you want to become.
It is important that these three journeys of life have our attention individually and concurrently.
Understand why many people have trouble leaving 'work' at their workplace, whether a business office or a home office.
Defend your own rigorous time schedule or become victim of everyone else’s rigorous time schedule.
Understand it is very important to separate fixed and variable Time activities.
Plan your Time not only for your physical 168 hours a week, but also your mental and emotional time.
Transform your Time usage to include plans we can get excited about.

Since the management of your time is your best kept secret,
there's no better place to start than right here!
Since being on the program we have welcomed the support from Beren to get the basics right, so we can build our capacity to level up and achieve our goals.
My wife and I embraced "Happy Hour", which is an hour that we spend each week reflecting on the week's Design a Decade module. It has helped us immensely with better managing our time, relationships and finances.
We are a young family with two little boys and we always remember the quote, ‘Beautiful Chaos’. We wish we could have met the team 20 years ago. The program has guided us in the right direction with a clear vision for the future while enjoying different seasons in our life.
Our future is a lot more secure. We now have tools, resources and training up our sleeves for our future decisions.
As a family [with four kids] we always had the focus on building great relationships and we invested a lot into creating memories with each other. We had some huge challenges to overcome – but we were still exhausted, because we neglected to take good care of our time.
