The Best-Ever Planning Program for Creative Geniuses Like You

Learn and Apply the Game-Changing  Plan to Succeed Approach to 

Own Your Future, Prove Your Doubters Wrong and Take Control of Your Life


This 15-WEEK Training Program Starts

April 13, 2022

Plan to Succeed 2.0 is the world’s best training program for entrepreneurs, professionals and adults with ADHD who want to take control of their time, and their lives. Our hands-on approach ensures you 'learn by doing.'

We know traditional 'time management' doesn't work. That's why this planning program gives you the strategies, tactics, tools you need as a Creative Genius (and makes sure you know how to use them!) To achieve peak productivity. To reach your full potential. And to have the freedom you crave.

Let's Redefine What's Possible

You CAN make a plan and follow it. I know that’s hard to imagine when…

  • Your To Do list haunts you. It’s become a To Do “book” of things you’ll never get to.
  • All your plans go off the rails… why bother?
  • It’s so hard to get started time's up before you make any progress.
  • You’re overwhelmed… there’s so much to do, you can’t decide what's next!
  • You’re reminded of everything you failed to complete, things you’ll probably never get to!
  • Constant interruptions with new emergencies put you further behind every day.
  • You can’t complete tasks, because of constant interruptions with new emergencies.
  • You over commit only to miss deadlines and disappoint colleagues and loved ones.
  • Others remind you of the commitments you missed, until they stop counting on you at all.
  • You feel plagued by self-doubt and self-criticism?
  • You’re frozen… you work best totally immersed in a project, but you can never clear your schedule to focus!
  • You can’t follow through… if you could, your life would be completely different and so much better!

And what could be worse than a reputation as someone people can't count on?

It’s painful and frustrating to know you have such potential, to try so hard and yet to always end up where you began.  But it doesn’t have to be that way!  The unique wiring of your ADHD-brain holds all the formulas you need to succeed.  All you’re missing is the key to unlock your productivity.

Eliminate Self-Doubt to Send Your Life into a New Higher Trajectory

Negativity and doubts creep into how you think of yourself, robbing you of confidence and self-esteem. Do you say, “I’ll never amount to anything” or ask “What’s wrong with me?” or, “Why can’t I get this right? I work so hard and always screw up.”

Duane shared how ashamed and stuck he felt. At least he did before he started using the strategies you will put in place in this program. But it wasn’t his fault – and it’s not yours either.

  • Traditional  'time management' juggles hours, days and weeks. But a Creative Genius must manage attention, not time.
  • The popular systems overload your executive functions. They’re no help; they’re working against you.
  • Time blindness throws up roadblocks to your Creative Genius productivity that the gurus ignore.

You need a system that works with your brain. And you need a way of using it that plugs every crack things can slip through. Time management systems only lead to frustration and make you believe there’s something wrong with you.  That’s exactly what happened to Duane.  Every new course he took in 'time management' failed miserably. It almost cost him his job, his career and his family. 

Purpose-Built for Your Creative Genius Brain

Duane wasn’t broken, and neither are you. Solutions others offer are the problem… they aren’t right for your Creative Genius brain.

But now you have no reason to doubt. We’ve created the perfect program to ensure your success. What’s more, we guarantee it.

You’ll master planning for your day, for  your life, in a way that taps into your Creative Genius to become more productive than you ever imagined. How do I know you'll master it? Because we'll do it together. Hands on learning is ideal for Creative Geniuses.

I’m so proud of Plan to Succeed  2.0. We’ve learned a lot over many years working with thousands of Creative Geniuses! We boiled down their comments, feedback, needs, wants, and wishes and built THE program you need to succeed. We’ve created a guided life transformation system for Creative Geniuses, but it’s so much more.

Plan to Succeed 2.0, a program designed especially for Creative Geniuses, is crammed with techniques specifically developed for creative thinkers like you. It’s based on years of work with ADHD adults who’ve used these tools to accomplish great things! Even better, we'll work together so you master how to work the system. Nothing will fall through the cracks.

You struggle to control your day-to-day lives – personal and professional.  Surviving today so drains your energy, it's robbing you of your dreams for tomorrow.  Being able to plan, and deliver on that plan, for today and the future, will let you recapture your big dreams.  What’s more, with Plan to Succeed 2.0, you’ll accomplish them!

Run Your Life or Someone Else Will

  • Build your confidence, controlling your days and your life, a consummate professional people admire and count on.
  • Never forget a promise or obligation again!  Be someone people count on.

Your Plan to Succeed 2.0 Path to  Achieving Creative Genius Greatness

We’ve worked with thousands of Creative Geniuses over the years! There's not much we haven't learned about helping you master planning. We built the Plan to Succeed 2.0 program to deliver results.

It’s painful and frustrating to know you have such potential, to try so hard and yet to always end up where you began.  But it doesn’t have to be that way!  The unique wiring of your ADHD-brain holds all the formulas you need to succeed.  All you’re missing is the key to unlock your productivity.

Three elements must align for all the potential of your Creative Genius brain to come into play:

  • Achiever’s Mental Game

Every Creative Genius must rework thought patterns etched in your brain by living in a world that doesn’t work the way you do. You need a new way of thinking about time. The right beliefs and mindset will ensure you succeed. The wrong ones will stop you dead in your tracks.

  • Achiever’s Game Plan

You need a 100% reliable planning process that works with your brain. You won’t get that from any planning system not designed for Creative Geniuses. You can’t get that from any planning system not customized for YOUR needs.

  • Achiever’s Playbook

No planning system works if you don’t work it right. You master the planning game with practice. Together, we’ll create and practice a layered approach to planning your life that delivers peak productivity AND work-life balance.

 In Plan to Succeed 2.0, we work with you every step of the way to master every aspect of planning as a Creative Genius.

You’re a Creative Genius. This is the success path to empower you to achieve full self expression and peace of mind.

Opportunity Is Knocking

You need to make a decision. A life-changing decision. 

You've weighed the pros and the cons. You talked it over. You've analyzed. You 've agonized.

I know you don't want to make the wrong decision, because deep down, you want to get it right. You need to get it right. 

But if you delay, your chance will disappear.

What Will You Regret Most?

That's the problem with decisions. The stakes always seem high. (And for Creative Geniuses, we wonder if we can take one more hit.) Because being wrong sucks.

But think of it this way. What will you regret more?

We focus on how much we will regret our decision. Even if it's something we really want to do. Because, what if it doesn't work out?

We Regret the Things We Didn't Do

But when we look back, we regret the things we didn't do.

We don't regret the things we did. After all, even if we make a huge mistake, we can fix it. We regret the things we didn't do. We regret the times we didn't take a chance on ourselves.

It's Decision Time

Now it's decision time. It's time to change your destiny. Make your move. Registration is closing soon - the countdown timer is ticking. I'll see you at the Quick Start session!


My Guarantee: The 30-Day Test Drive

The strategies we reveal (and help you implement and master) in this program have worked for thousands of people. I know it will work for you too. That's why I want you to commit to "playing full out" in this program.

Don't make a timid, half-hearted decision. Make a throw-myself-into-it-head-first decision that virtually guarantees success.

Don't do it for me. Do it for you.

I'm committed to your success so I want you to test drive the program at no risk. Throw yourself into it for the next 30 days. If you give it a genuine go and you don’t feel I delivered on my promise, ask for a refund. I'll give you your money back.

What other people are saying...
about Plan to Succeed

Company President from
Montreal, Canada

“...the Plan to Succeed program -- it has been extremely helpful and has really impacted my life positively. I feel much more in control of my time and have managed to find better balance in my life.”


in Social Development from Ontario

" I can best explain the changes in my life through its emotional impact. Near the beginning of the course, I cried a couple of times. They were mostly cathartic cries. I was anxious at the beginning... I considered asking for a refund, because I decided a planning course really wasn’t going to help me. But I decided I should stick with it for at least one or two more weeks. I’m so very glad I did!"

Research Scientist from

The program definitely helped. Structuring my days better, much easier to track my tasks cross project and record delegation of tasks. I'm having to remember less in my brain. That's helping me be clearer across the day. I also recognise my biggest compounding factor is overcommitment, which I will be focusing on next! It's clear to me that that is what is fueling the stress and work hours. Our last goals session have also helped me reflect on the other things I want to have in my life, so overcommitment at work must be overcome to achieve these - I want to!


Isabelle Delaney,
Counsellor from

The program has helped me find my confidence back. I learned a lot about what the source of my difficulties were and what can help alleviate the negative consequences linked to not understand why the difficulties were there in the first place. I understood that I can do the job I want to do, provided I manage my time well and put routines in place. Creativity does not need to mean chaos and routine does not have to mean boredom.

Sidney M.,
Empowered woman from Oakland, California

“I’m really happy with the things I’ve done. It’s a huge difference from just taking the meds and saying oh well!”


Josée M.,
Entrepreneur from Quebec, Canada

“I’m so much calmer and I think it’s the confidence too, much more confident...”

from Charleston, West Virginia

“The idea of keeping project notes was alone worth the cost of the class. That one tiny piece of information alone for ME was invaluable based on my needs. I knew that as soon as I learned about it that this was what was missing for my writing projects.”


Colette Sosnowy,
Researcher from Providence, RI

The PTS course offered so much more than I expected! I learned tremendously about myself, my challenges, and my thinking.


About our approach to Creative Genius learning ...


in Social Development, from Ontario

The materials we received were very useful, and I will refer back to them in the future when I need a refresher. All the forms of support – pods, business hours to ask questions 1-on-1, productivity hours with body doubling and the planning clinics – contributed to me learning so much from the course, implementing what I learned, and improving my productivity and wellbeing. 

Kurt Schroeder,
Insurance Sales, from Illinois

“...the first thing [you told us] was, ‘Don't sit through the course and tell myself that I will apply everything after I've learned it all.’…  That is exactly what I would have done had you not put it in the context that you put it in. And I did apply things as they came up.”

About the weekly missions…


from Charleston, West Virginia

“Very helpful was... good advice and encouraging words from Duane and Linda about feeling free to experiment and try new things and not to be discouraged if they don't work and to try again”


in Social Development, from Ontario

“…so many incredibly insightful personal experiences and shared them in such a way that I got it the first time and wow, experiences that I will be reflecting on for a very long time.”

Kurt Schroeder,
Insurance Sales, Illinois

“It was wonderful to share experiences, ask questions, get advice on applying the lesson, and other aspects.”

About working in a group...

Josée M.,
Entrepreneur from Quebec, Canada

“but it’s great because I see all your accomplishments and how happy everybody is and even if it’s a tiny one, it’s a tiny one... I cherish these calls… usually I start something and then wiggle out but with this program, I can’t wait to see you all, see how your weeks went.”

About Planning Pods…


in Social Development, from Ontario

“The pods were probably what convinced me (as the “cherry on the cake”) because from past experience I know they can be a tremendous support. We continue to meet twice a week to plan and support each other. I really enjoy our sessions.

Josée M.,
Entrepreneur from Quebec, Canada

“…a realization that I’m not alone, hey there are other people that are struggling too and it’s great to laugh and to hear everybody’s victories, it just makes me happy, it really does.”

About the Creative Genius lifestyle...

Sidney M.,
Empowered woman, from Oakland, California

I have a really clear picture of what I need to get my sleep be really regular so I’ve had it going on… wow boy I’m really in the captain’s seat now…. So I’m pretty much in charge of my sleep.”

Susan M.,
Entrepreneur, from Oregon

"I'm getting more done, I have some more time for myself, I have a plan for exercise..."

Kurt Schroeder,
Insurance Sales, from Illinois

"I have become so conscious of what I should eat and what I shouldn’t eat... [I] went off my eating plan… and I noticed after one day what a mistake that was and I got back on it and I’m doing better again”

Susan M.,
Entrepreneur, from Oregon

"Shutting down the negative narrative and replacing with the positive one is enormous, it’s not just in de-talk to yourself, you’re doing something really astonishing to your brain when you’re being positive as opposed to negative."

About achieving peak productivity...


in Social Development, from Ontario

“I have changed so much over the course and I continue to make improvements. All the components in the course worked so well together.”

Isabelle Delannoy,

Counsellor from England

“...I can do the job I want to do, provided I manage my time well and put routines in place. Creativity does not need to mean chaos and routine does not have to mean boredom.”

Josée M.
Entrepreneur from Quebec, Canada

“I’m glad because I know my energy [Genius] zones, and I know my Kinetic zones, I just need to put them in my calendar and then schedule around them”

Sidney M.
Empowered woman from Oakland, California

“I have had successes especially in planning the day before for the next day and realizing that at the end of the next day, I “My God, I did that” and I can’t describe the feeling of accomplishment of having done it, it’s like Wow! There may be a little hole here that I can get through into this other world.”
