The Fewer Things Better Mini Course

A free mini-course with downloadable workbook

Like most teachers, you want to use your life to make an impact — not only in the classroom, but in your family, community, and the world.

And yet it feels impossible to have that focus when you’re exhausted and overwhelmed.

How can you give the best of yourself when you’re bogged down with mundane tasks and unfulfilling obligations?

You really can’t do it all ... and you don't have to try.

You just need to STOP and GET CLARITY about what's most important, so you know where to focus.

I designed this free mini-course to help you figure out how to use your time in ways that make an impact.

It takes key exercises from the Fewer Things Better book and puts them into a step-by-step system.

Use the mini-course to help you uncover how you want to be using your time, and develop a realistic schedule that's focused on your priorities.

The FTB Project will help you get clarity on making your time feel more meaningful and fulfilling:

  1. Determine how to build your legacy
  2. Identify your seasons of life
  3. Align daily routines with your priorities
  4. Define balance for yourself
  5. Choose self-care practices to stay in balance

After you complete the workbook, you'll see a clear path for creating daily routines and habits which allow you to prioritize things that truly matter to you.


You should participate in the Fewer Things Better Project if you want to:

  • Stop feeling like you never have time for things you care about
  • Escape the monotony of never-ending paperwork, housework, & errands
  • Plan out the habits and schedule YOU need to stay balanced
  • End each day knowing you did things that were meaningful and fulfilling

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course begin?
It's completely self-paced--you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
This course is a permanent addition to the resources in the Teacher Lifestyle Lab, so you can go through the materials anytime.
Should I read the book first?
If you plan to read "Fewer Things, Better," I suggest doing that first and then completing the mini-course to help you implement what you learned. It's up to you, though--you could preview the course first and start thinking through the exercises, then read the book once you have a fuller understanding of the "fewer things better" mindset. Keep in mind that the mini-course and book are sequenced very differently, so you wouldn't be able to read a book chapter and then complete a corresponding exercise in the mini-course.

I hope you'll use this mini-course to help you gain clarity on what’s most important so you can allocate time to your biggest priorities.
