One of the most useful courses I've taken - practical, helpful, I am beginning to apply these techniques and I feel it will enhance the way I work. I would like to take the longer Mindfulness individual class. THANK YOU!
Mary Ellen Baker provided realistic, useful strategies combined with education in executive function to empower those in the class to improve our efficiency AND calm/mindfulness. I have tried classes like this before, and this is by far the biggest "bang for the buck."
Melissa, I loved your class yesterday. Thank you for an eye opening experience. This morning I set goals and did not get distracted. So far, an improvement of my usual behavior. I will read all the printed notes you have given me and continue to apply these new skills. I’m so glad I took the class. It was great! I’m also practicing creating a home for every thing in my house. Things look better. I’m trying to make way for action.
Melissa, thank you for a very interesting workshop! The first third really pushed my buttons, whew, but by the end, I was seeing the light. I was feeling bewildered at first, but by the end I was feeling a bit of confidence and baby-stepping into success! I wrote a four page list today of things that have to get done. I crossed many of them off and got that dopamine hit, lol. I am going to do my best to incorporate what I learned as best I can.
This course took me to the next evolutionary stage! I was struggling with doing anything that took more than three steps, which means pretty much anything more complicated than frying an egg. I had a thousand different time management books, calendars, phone apps, and bits of unsolicited advice (thanks Mom), but none of them was suited to my executive functioning, or lack thereof. Mary Ellen showed me how to master time, and tailored everything to me, including incorporating things that were already working for me, rather than throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Now I can actually set and achieve meaningful goals, and I don't feel like a total failure at life. At the end of the course, I was even arriving on time! Level up Player One!
I had a hard time motivating myself for work because of the many branches of my job, I often felt overwhelmed with it all, some days feeling like I just couldn't work. After even the first meeting with Mary Ellen, she taught me simple tools in a way I could understand it, and now I'm much more excited about going to work because I'm more organized in a way that best suits my style. I even use these tools at home for personal projects and feel like I have a lot more free time to do the things that fill my cup. I can't thank you enough Mary Ellen, you are truly a time saver and made this a wonderful experience. Thank you!
Your class is life-changing. Ever since I took your class I practice being present in the moment and using checklists. When I don’t use checklists I wake up and am distracted in conversations by my to-do list. Changing that behavior allows me to sleep! I also understand so much more about how I relate to my spouse. Thank you!!! I appreciate you!
Thank you, Melissa, for a great class. It is exactly what I need....tomorrow I will go and buy the thirty folders. And I assure you I will be calling for help if I get stuck. My plan is to have it ready and running by next Sunday. You have given me a great gift and I am so very grateful. Learning new strategies to make life more meaningful made for a remarkable day!!
Mary Ellen was amazing! She helped me and my coworkers with our time management through different classes and gave us useful and sustainable techniques to stay more organized. Following the classes, she returned to my office on numerous occasions to help me create a jobs binder for my position. It was a challenge to figure out how to pass on a usable how-to guide for the next person who will take my role, but Mary Ellen was patient, dedicated, and put a lot of thought and hard work into the project we worked on.
Mary Ellen was awesome in coordinating a one-on-one training with me, customized to my unique and varied position. I juggle a lot of balls and with Mary Ellen's help I have a way to stay organized and free up my mind to be able to enjoy what I'm doing without worrying about dropping one of those balls. Thank you for your great ideas and generosity of spirit!
