It was great talking to Lisa Mallis again on the show. She brings a lifetime of experience, practical knowledge and strategies to help everyone get more life (not just work) out of each day. Our conversation begins with reviewing Lisa’s unique background, and it’s an interesting story.
Originally, Lisa was a classroom math teacher who loved students and teaching. Eventually, she moved on to become a school administrator and eventually an athletic director. During this time, she started Impactive Strategies as a side business and quickly realized she was an entrepreneur at heart. Lisa was and always has been an exceptional educator, but she came to the realization that “Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean that’s what you’re meant to do.”
Lisa began tutoring college students, a job that led her to become an organizer and develop many of the strategies she still uses today. It was during this time she began to realize that she wanted to be a professional organizer, not of physical space but an organizer of time. Inspired by her experiences, Lisa then began to apply what she had discovered through experience to expand and improve Impactive Strategies.
Our conversation moved on from her story to the structure of what she teaches now through capacity coaching. We discussed techniques like the 168-Hour Exercise (examining your hours in a week and how you spend them), how you want to spend your time, and setting a date to accomplish what you need to do. From there, we move on to Biological Primetime (with ideas from When by Daniel Pink) and how to leverage your mind-body connections to get more done each day.
We wrapped up with a profile of Lisa’s ideal client (Maybe you?), and discussed how Impactive Strategies evaluates the effectiveness of your plan for your time and your life. If you enjoyed today’s episode and would like the opportunity to hear her in person, Lisa Mallis is scheduled to speak at the NAWBO conference hosted by Mike Michalowicz in Cleveland, September 2020. Give this episode listen to learn more about maximizing the potential of each day and making the most of every moment.
