“I am really noticing the benefits of using the Me Power Planner. I started with simple steps to retrain my brain. I adjusted my eating regime, started a new project which sparked enthusiasm, and learning new online tools to work remotely. Now I am experiencing levels of self-confidence which I haven’t experienced in over 10 years! This is a huge achievement for me and now my brain is less foggy, more switched on and more focused than ever before. I have been working on my mind for a long time but I got stuck, and the Me Power Planner has helped me achieve more self-confidence, be more switched on, more productivity and more engaged.”
- Michelle Shorthouse, Customer Services Administrator Nexus, University of Leeds.

“I think the biggest benefit from the planner for both me and my husband is the accountability aspect. Once you detail what you want to achieve, it is hard to deviate from it. So you make sure you devote time to your “to dos” and then also check back to see what you achieved.  I especially like it for making me not beat myself up so much when things don’t go to plan, using the reflection tools;  and for my husband, because planning is not his strong suit, he benefits from the clarity he gets from setting objectives for the day. Once he’s written it down, he finds he makes sure he does it and he has been much more productive since using the system.

We use the daily planner, the weekly reflection and the F.A.M. Story to continually set objectives and check progress.”
