You see it all the time.
Members of your team getting to the end of their work day and saying:
It happens to you too.
You’ve spent 8 hours straight at your desk but, once again, you haven’t made as much progress on your big, juicy projects as you’d like.
Instead, you’ve been flapping around between emails and admin, and switching gears between project work and smaller tasks.
You’re on a hamster wheel of overwhelm with your work and frustration with yourself. You feel like if you were just more disciplined — or worked harder — you could get more done.
In fact, I’d go as far as to say you’re probably pushing yourself harder than you should be.
Those unfocused, unproductive, distracted feelings aren’t the result of a lack of discipline or hard work. They’re the result of the hectic modern times we live in and the unrelenting demands of our work and home lives.
A way to stop the mental noise and distraction so you can get more done AND enjoy your downtime.
A way that’s backed by science and research that you can be learned in as little as 30 minutes a week.
Based on brain science and research-backed techniques Tweak Your Week teaches you small, actionable tweaks (most take less than 5 minutes to implement) that will win you back your focus, headspace, and productivity.
"I have to say: game-changer. I am not only on top of things but I'm enjoying work more. I'm not stressed or frantic or wondering who I've forgotten to email. Honestly, the clarity of mind is just so WORTH IT."
"The skills you have taught have made me feel and work dramatically better."
"Fantastically engaging and well-run. The research was well-cited, and I loved how you were able to critique it for us. I also enjoyed that you shared well-tried strategies, with a good combination of theory and personal stories."
"Christina’s teaching experience really comes through; she is knowledgeable, very clear when presenting information, and friendly."
"I've been able to corral an unwieldy schedule into a more cohesive and orderly system that suits me much better. My time feels like mine again."
"Because of Tweak Your Week, I stopped letting other people control my time. Before, I was constantly reacting to the demands other people placed on me. I often felt scattered – flitting from one little task to the next. My work life after Tweak Your Week in two words: Proactive and Focused. Tweak Your Week helped me to take back my time."
"Christina expertly distils productivity-related research from numerous disciplines into practical and engaging lessons and tips. Her Tweak Your Week online course changes lives."
Each step includes:
There are also a whole bunch of extras along the way including:
That’s because we aren’t managing your time. We’re managing your focus.
Yes, there are 24 hours in every day — but research tells us that we can only do deep, meaningful, productive work for an average of 4 of those hours.
All the time management in the world isn't going to work if you can’t clear distractions and get focussed on the big tasks.
With Tweak Your Week you get proven, research-backed strategies to feel productive, poised, and in control of your days.
“Christina’s clear and concise advice left us all with some fresh ideas about how to manage our day-to-day. Christina was not only engaging and professional, but her content is grounded in demonstrated and reliable science, which is especially important to those in our field.”

When I teach, interesting ideas meet concrete action. You will learn about the many ways that human brains are endlessly fascinating, but you will also leave with a personal-to-you plan for easy steps you can take starting today.
The tools that we look at are proven to work for real people by actual, top-notch* scientific research. (I am a fully-signed-up, die-hard believer in academic rigour.)
“OK, Christina,” I hear you say, “so your know your stuff. But what makes you the right person to talk to my group?”
I hear you.
Knowing your stuff doesn’t automatically make you a good teacher, right? So let me reassure you that I also know how to talk about my stuff. I've been teaching adults since 2011, and am skilled in breaking down big ideas so that they make sense.
I spent four years teaching scientists how to talk about science to normal people.
We won’t get deep into the science or use lots of jargon. Just straight-up, easy-to-grasp information, and clear action steps that you can implement straight away.
*That’s peer-reviewed, for all the scholars in the room.
“I wish I had known this stuff decades ago. This is the best organised, and most helpful online course I have ever seen or done. As a teacher I am so aware of how different ways of presenting information are needed for understanding to occur. Christina's presentation and accompanying examples, in video, slide decks and PDF's are perfect for different learning styles. So clear, so well scaffolded.”
Here’s what others have asked before purchasing Tweak Your Week.
Firstly, the tools explored in Tweak Your Week are based on actual research. In other words, they've been proven by science to work for real people.
Secondly, all the time management in the world isn't going to work if you have more action-steps bouncing around in your head than you have time in the day. That's why the FIRST thing we look at is how to get your mental traffic flowing freely, allowing you to fully focus.
Thirdly, Tweak Your Week is focused on slow and steady change rather than changing everything about how you work overnight, which makes it much easier to sustain. That's the "tweak" in "Tweak Your Week".
You most certainly can!
The course is delivered through an online membership platform, so all you need to access it is a computer and a decent internet connection.
In total, the course includes 2 hours and 35 minutes of video lessons, and about 5 hours of worksheets and immediate action steps.
That means if you're assigning professional development credit to those who complete the course, they should receive 7.5 hours' credit on completion.
Each participant in the course will receive a unique login, which they can use to access the membership portal.
On there, they'll find the video lessons, as well as audio, transcripts, PDF downloads, and worksheets.
Watching the video lessons will give the best experience, but if you like to learn on the go you can download the audio, or if you prefer to read you can download the PDF transcript.
If you have any questions, you can submit them online (there's a big, shiny button on the homepage) and I'll upload new Q&A videos answering student questions every couple of weeks.
If you need your participants to complete the course (roughly) simultaneously, then I'll provide access for a period of 6 weeks.
(You might want this, for example, if you need a final report on which participants completed the course, or if you want your group to attend live Q&A sessions with me as they work through the course.)
6 weeks is more than enough time to complete the course, but is still a short enough period to motivate your group to get started (and finished!) sooner rather than later.
Otherwise, I'll provide lifetime access to the course. As long as the course is live, you’ll be able to access it. If Project TGL's offerings change and I stop selling this course, I'll give you 90 days’ notice so you can download the resources. But I don't see that happening anytime soon!
I'd love to have your group take this course because I know how much it can help. So, if you have any questions or niggly hesitations, please select the "Book phone call" option below, and we can talk in real time. No hard sell, promise.
