“I created MYN and 1MTD because, when I worked in the corporate world, I was amazed at how overwhelmed everyone was. MYN and 1MTD will solve that for you.”
Creator of MYN and 1MTD
Former VP, Accenture
Author of 8 books on Time and Task Management
"I'd tried other methodologies to master email overload and they fell short. Top down approaches just don't work. Michael's methodology is easy to understand and apply. It provides "stress relief" immediately. With practice, results continue to improve."
"It continues to amaze me how 1MTD has kept me organized and on track with all the crazy multiple tasks/frequent distractions that happen in an open-area customer service zone. I’m not constantly worried about tasks that fall through the cracks because they just don’t."
"I just had to let you know after struggling for a very long time with various GTD scenarios with MS Outlook, you have managed in minutes of the MYN Quick Start section, not only to let me take control but use a system that TOTALLY works for me. I am on Lesson 6 and look forward to finishing all the lessons."
"I have tried GTD, Franklin Covey, etc., and nothing has worked. This is the only system that has worked for me. I finally feel a sense of control over my days."
