I'm here on Patreon because I love and believe in the work I (and others) have done here since 2007 - making time-based productivity easy forever. Who are the "others"? Well, lots of folks have given freely of their time - giving feedback, moral support or by being a guest writer or editor, for example.
Up until now, the main way I have funded the Labs' activities has been via live programs and books offered here in the Caribbean. Fact is... I'm not a great salesperson, and this is a small market. A long-standing recession hasn't helped.
By contrast, I love focusing on the expansive nature of the work which lies at our core purpose. As you probably know, 2Time Labs is in the business of creating breakthrough ideas in time-based productivity. We dwell on the intersection of several fields which usually don't play nicely together: psychology, operations research, philosophy, adult learning, physics and business management. The ideas in these fields inspire us to produce a consistent stream of content.
What sets us apart is our reliance on academic research and our own data collection, versus anecdotes and cliches. It's all laid out in my book, Perfect Time-Based Productivity, where we cite the research of over 200 academics. It also shows up in the content I produce - here's a link to some of it, plus a brief snapshot below.
Unfortunately, inter-disciplinary fields receive little academic funding. As a result, there are few conferences, journals, corporate centers or university labs devoted to the topic of time management. It's all a bit strange because every functioning adult uses these methods every day. They must be confronted because there are more demands on your time than ever before, courtesy of mobile computing, new channels of information and the continuous flow of apps and gadgets.
The end result is a huge and sad disconnect between quality researchers and regular people. Popular authors use (or share) don't refer to them, and the best stuff gets lost in academia.
It's not what the best research labs at Google, Microsoft or Xerox perform. As an alum of AT&T Bell Laboratories, I remember what it was like to bring the practical and academic worlds together to produce great ideas. The organization boasted a number of Nobel Prizes as a result.
When these two worlds come together, the results can be quite innovative. Here's an example of an interactive simulation we put together for time advisers: coaches, professional organizers, consultants and trainers in time-based productivity. (To hear/view, you may need to use the Adobe's Flash Player Projector.)
If using research to produce more interactive content like the one above makes sense to you, I invite you to support the work I'm doing. While I can't promise a famous international prize at the end, I can provide you with an absolutely unique experience:
1. You will hear (and learn) stuff you have never heard before via early access to new breakthrough ideas in our Patreon-only content.
2. You will be able to contribute insights and advice, and know that your input has been heard.
3. You will feel like you are making a difference. Your patronage will help fund free teaching here in the Caribbean. Plus, I'll be able to produce more interactive content for a global audience, and travel to locations around the world to share our ideas
4. You will have fun, be engaged and even entertained as you travel with us on a journey of ups and downs!
I will report them as they take place, so you can see very clearly where your patronage is going!
Want to be a supporter? Go ahead and fund 2Time Labs and the work we're doing. I'd personally appreciate it.
