037: Aligning your daily tasks to your greater goals & vision
In this episode I sew a tidy thread through our daily actions and link them to our weekly plans, monthly intentions, quarterly goals and overall vision for our future. I open the door for you to view the way in which you move through your daily tasks and reflect upon whether they are moving you closer to, or further away from what you want to be, do and have in your life. Each day we make a series of choices that either align or detach us from living on purpose. Being aware of this is just the first step in making those conscious choices and putting our own dreams and goals ahead of others'.

036 Where Does All My Time Go?
When the days and weeks seem to fly, it’s no wonder that we end up scratching our heads and asking ourselves where on earth the time has gone. In this episode I chat to Yvette Sitters about how she audited and reflected upon how she uses her time in order to better manage her self, her tasks and her life. The full process of conducting a time audit is available as an eCourse inside The Time Creator Momentum, my online membership. You can check that out at www.tashguthrie.com.au/membership What does a time audit entail? Yvette breaks this down in GREAT DETAIL in this episode, but in short the time audit asks you to track how you spend your time, in short time intervals and then reflecting upon how we have used our time and checking whether it’s in alignment with how we WANT to be using it. About today’s guest… Yvette Sitters is a Gold Coast Mum of 2 little girls aged 6 and 3 and she is the proud owner and creator of Manage My Wedding, Australia’s #1 ranked App for wedding Planning in the Apple App Store. Yvette created Manage My Wedding once she had her first baby as she really couldn’t imagine working 70 hours per week in the wedding industry with a baby in tow. Creating Manage My Wedding has enabled Yvette to orchestrate a working life that works in harmony with her family life while providing a constant source of inspiration to her two young daughters. Her goal is to support other Mum’s in business so that they too can reach their goals. Yvette does this through selling other Business Mum’s products in her store and surrounding herself with brilliant Mum’s who she contracts work out too. Yvette has a deep love for early mornings, organising and lists and her husband would say it’s a crazy obsession. Yvette loves the comfort of her home but when not home will be found at the beach or trying a new local barista. Yvette believes happiness is always right in front of us if we slow down enough to feel it and recognise it.

034 What Would Your Grandmother Have Done With Your Opportunities?
This year's International Women's Day focuses on the campaign #ChooseToChallenge. This special episode of The Time Creator Podcast focuses on the positive general impact of our grandmothers, and features snippets from five inspirational women who are sharing their stories. The women who have walked before us have all left an incredible legacy that has seen our opportunities grow today. This episode focuses on the leading question: What would our grandmothers have done with our opportunities? In 2021, my signature floral planner featured artwork painted by my grandmother about 40 years ago. This year marks 30 years since her passing and I have been inspired by her story of determination and grit in breaking the role of the traditional housewife in the 1950s. This planner cover has been a beautiful tribute to her and it proudly links the dreams of my maternal heritage to the dreams that I have been able to achieve today, because of her. I hope that this story also inspires my daughter to pursue her dreams when the time comes. Each of today's guests share stories about their grandmothers and the opportunities that they worked so hard for us to have. They also share a bold prediction of the opportunities they hope their future grand daughters will have because of the work that they are doing today. Thank you to the following women for their time in sharing their special stories.

033 How I Decluttered 200 Items From My Home In 4 Days
On the podcast today I'm chatting about all things clutter, the mental health battles associated with clutter and how I am using a beautiful, gentle method to declutter my own home. A cluttered home can lead to a cluttered mind, which results in overwhelm, stress and anxiety. On some level, this affects most of us at some stages of our lives and it can be a very tricky thing to get on top of. Especially when you don't know when to start! I recently came across the most incredible APP which gives you one tiny object/group of objects to focus on decluttering each day. When you complete the task, you can record how many things you removed from your living space and it keeps a record of this for you!  If ever you've wanted to declutter, but had no idea where to start, then this might be for you!

030 Uncovering your True Self
Understanding who you are and why you are the way you are is integral to creating an authentic life, based on who you are at your soul. In the past I have fought my instincts and second guessed decisions that I would make, wondering why I never felt confident to back myself. Fast forward to Christmas 2019 and I recall sneaking away from the crowd I was hosting to have a moment of solicitude before the desserts were served. I had been rushed off my feet all morning and with several house guests, was feeling the pull and strain of hosting and smiling and all those other things that demanded my attention. As I crept into the quiet lounge room and found myself a private, comfy seat I was startled to see my sister in law Ashlee, who had curled herself up on the other side of the lounge with a book. She smiled at me and I instantly felt invited and reassured in my own home. She asked quietly, 'taking some time out?' to which I nodded.  That was a defining moment in my life. Our conversation that followed enlightened me beyond belief and I am so thrilled to share a recount of that conversation here with you now. Once Ashlee introduced me to the 16 personalities test and I uncovered my true self, I have found peace in many things I do. To find out your personality, head to www.16personalities.com to blow your mind.

023 The Power of One
The power of one concept was one that I created after eating way too many peanut M&Ms. Seriously. You see, I am an over-indulger. I never know when to stop and always end up taking things too far - like the M&Ms. A couple turns into a handful and a handful turns into... well, you see where I'm going with this.  The power of one helps me stay within my limits and set boundaries that I can achieve. One serve of dinner.  One glass of wine. One M&M But the power of one has magical powers beyond restraint. It also gives you the power of productivity and achievement. In the home, I applied it to things like, One load of laundry everyday One hour of TV (so I can spend time on achieving other things) What can you apply the power of one to?

021 How To Choose the Perfect Planner
A planner is an essential planning and organisational tool for anyone who wants to achieve more, improve their time management and reduce general overwhelm and stress in their lives. You only need to walk into any department store or stationery store to be spoilt for choice when it comes to diaries and planners and it can be confusing to try and choose the perfect planner if you’re not quite sure what to look for or what you need. Everyone is busy. I hear people talk about being a ‘busy mum’ or a ‘busy working mum’ or a ‘busy stay-at-home mum’ but the actual fact is that everyone is busy. Everyone has responsibilities, goals and actions that they need to complete and although some people seem to bubble along keeping their plans all in their mind, most of us need that special place to write down and record what we need to achieve and plan for success. So how do you choose the perfect planner? It’s tempting to just pick something with a pretty cover (and by golly are there heaps of those). But from experience, when you choose something beautiful over something practical, you end up putting it up on the shelf and never using it! And that’s just a waste of money! Scheduling and time-management is my gig, so here are my top tips for choosing the perfect planner, no matter who you are or what your circumstances are.

020 Planner Release 2021
It is with much excitement that today I will be revealing the covers of the 2021 planners. I can’t help but reflect on the opportunities we as women, have in 2021  in following and achieving our dreams. I think back to my grandmother as a young woman and the brave and deliberate decisions she made,  all of which were unusual for her time. By unapologetically breaking the mould of the traditional housewife, she has paved the way for my mother and I to follow our dreams. This year you'll notice that my signature floral design is unlike anything you've seen from another brand. It is unique. It's not on trend. It is vintage and it is very special to my heart. This tribute proudly links the dreams of my maternal heritage to the dreams that I have been able to achieve today, because  of her, and to the legacy I want to leave for my daughter. My grandmother was a progressive woman for her time. She worked hard her whole life on the things that lit her up. As a wife of the 1950s, she refused to be boxed into the stereotypical role of the housewife and instead, pursued a life of passion from book keeping and banking (at a time when few women were able), to farming and art. She referred to cooking and cleaning as a 'mug's game' and forbid my mother to study home economics at high school, which mum defied. It was later in her life, in her 50s that she pursued a long-time interest of painting. She painted beautiful landscapes and florals on canvas and eventually ceramics and I have chosen to use one of these floral pieces as the signature floral cover for the 2021 planners.

015 Creating Successful Remote Learning Routines at Home
It's that time of the year again when kids are returning to the classroom after their 2 week Easter break.... hang on a minute! No they're not! If you're a parent of a child aged between 5 and 18, chances are that you've been facilitating remote learning at home towards the end of term one and are about to continue in this way for the next few weeks.  While some parents have loved this challenge, many have struggled with this transition too. Never in our wildest dreams could we imagine our children learning in this way, for so long. As an educator AND parent myself, I am seeing both sides of these crazy times. When I'm on site at school I'm teaching and when I'm working remotely from home, I'm supporting my students and families, as well as teaching my own daughter by facilitating her remote learning timetable.  In this episode, I chat with another educator Tiffany from Inspire Learn Teach. We break down the different ways that you as a parent can set yourself and your children up for a successful day of learning from home. There are no two children who are the same, or learn the same and in this episode we acknowledge this along with the varying routines and systems that may be helpful to support our little learners during this time (while keeping you sane too). Tiffany is an early childhood specialist now working within the high school arena. She has followed children right from the start of their formal education, working within baby rooms in child care; right through to teaching senior subjects. She is passionate about working with parents to take the notion of child led learning from the fringes, and place it at the heart of life long learning. Through her website, Tiffany inspires mamas to find learning in play and works with them to build their child’s independence allowing mamas to not only make a coffee but to enjoy it HOT!

I'd also like to inspire you to work through tasks you've been wanting to do around the home for ages and also connect with yourself during this time.

Having children changes a lot of things and fitness is no exception. My guest today is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to creating fitness programs to suit busy mums because she KNOWS that it's not always possible to spend 60 minutes a day at the gym getting in the ultimate workout.  Instead, Nikki is all about intentional, incidental fitness... health and fitness that can be integrated into the everyday activities that we as mums, juggle. Suddenly, movement and fitness seems possible and manageable. If you have been wanting to incorporate more movement and fitness into your busy days without feeling like you need to spend an hour at the gym, then this episode is for you!

009 Trusting Your Vision
Have you ever felt unsure of your direction?  Or been so confused by the opportunities that present themselves at the most random times? Or images and ideas that appear but you're unsure why? This is the case for my guest today, Jess Connor. Jess attended my first vision board workshop back in 2016 and instead of walking out with a carefully curated vision board full of her niche business area and focus, she walked out with a somewhat confusing collection of visual images that made absolutely no sense to her. Fast forward 4 years and Jess is living inside that vision board. In this episode of the podcast, Jess opens up about this process and the series of events that presented themselves to her to get her to where she is today. ABOUT JESS The call of the flowers has always been strong for Jess Connor. From crafting floral gifts as a young girl, to work experience in a florist as a teenager, the path was always clear. Over the last 12 years, has Jess soaked in the wisdom of leaders in floristry, permaculture and horticulture. She is a woman who grows and creates with incredible heart, soul and integrity. Along the way, her love for fresh dahlias awakened a vision of owning her own flower farm where she could design with locally grown blooms. Sculpting breathtaking botanical designs was just the beginning. From humble beginnings as an award winning retail and wedding florist and designer, she’s now living the dream planting, growing, and designing amongst a community of like-minds on The Farm in the Byron Bay hinterland; creating beautiful bridal blooms for weddings, and teaching others about the sustainable, slow flower movement, one seed at a time. I am so thrilled and beyond excited to welcome my dear friend Jess Connor to the podcast.

008 Saying NO with Confidence
Life is tough as a people pleaser. Having to say no is one of the most unnatural things to do because at the heart of everything, we want to help and support others in our lives. Sometimes though, it’s just not possible or realistic for us to do so. Often we say yes to people out of obligation, fear of disappointing or simply because we feel we should. At times we let other people’s agendas and priorities railroad our own just to avoid feeling these things. It’s like we would rather say yes to someone else rather than to ourselves {#ouch} and let’s be frank (because you know I love Frank) when we say yes to someone else when we don’t want to, what we are really doing is saying no to ourselves {#truthbomb} and somehow, we reason that that’s a better thing to do. Argh. Sometimes we have to just say no. Even if it feels difficult. Even when we feel we have let someone down. Even when we are soooo sick that we couldn’t possibly have said yes anyway. It’s tough sometimes. I’m still learning to say no. It’s something that we as givers need to practice. There are so many reasons why we sometimes have to say no and below you’ll see that I’ve grouped my suggestions according to those reasons. But here lies a little advice for when it comes to saying the big NO...

005 Uncover your True Purpose
Do you ever wonder what your true purpose is? Why are you here? What are you searching for? What will your legacy be? In this episode of The Time Creator podcast I chat to Zoe Hyde about uncovering your true purpose and why it's so important. We also chat about the things that get in the way of us finding our purpose and why there are no coincidences in life. About the guest Zoe Hyde is the founder of Zoe Hyde Transformations and is based in West Gippsland, Victoria. She is an international author of “Uncage the Lion Within”, podcast host, motivational speaker and transformational mentor. She truly believes that we all have a lion living inside of us; and it’s often that small voice, that passion, and that drive, that we bury away due to fear or lack of self belief. In order to feel truly happy and fulfilled in our lives, we need to dig deep to open up the cage and trust the calling of our inner lion! Zoe spent the first 22 years of her life saying “No” to opportunities, lacking clarity, feeling invisible, and that she would never amount to greatness. It wasn’t until she found the courage to trust her own inner lion, that she truly transformed her life. In doing so, she stepped into her wisdom, found her life’s purpose, and embraced who she truly was: a strong, extroverted woman who dives head first into the projects which light her soul on fire. And in going through this journey herself, Zoe has since dedicated her life to helping people do just this, so that they can find purpose and enjoyment from their lives and embrace who they truly are. Key Takeaways Zoe shares her journey prior to launching her book Uncage the Lion Within Why finding your purpose is and always has been so important How social media can affect your purpose Why we need to stop sitting on the sideline of our lives Create before you consume when it comes to social media Zoe’s tips for reconnecting with ourselves and finding our purpose Are coincidences and failures real?
