Sean is a manager for one of the largest animal shelters in Canada.

He’s not only responsible for the well-being of all of the animals that come through the doors, but for a team of more than 10 employees and countless volunteers.

It’s a high-intensity line of work where lives are on the line, but he wouldn’t change it for the world. (We need more folks like this!)

The problem

Such is the case in many high-intensity jobs, he was sacrificing his sanity in pursuit of saving lives. He had hollowed himself out through constantly putting everyone’s needs in front of his own.

He loved his career, but wasn’t enjoying his life. He was in the thick of massive burnout.

After YEARS of prioritzing others… He finally saw how much time he WASN’T spending on himself.

He wasn’t exercising, had very little time in his life for play. He was in complete imbalance.

Sean’s biggest challenge coming into our community was that he had lost faith in planning ahead. He used to love checklists and planning, but the more times he showed up for work only to have those lists pushed aside as he focused on putting out fires, the more discouraged he became.

What he did

He went on to take our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp, and almost immediately started making massive changes to his life.

He rediscovered the power of planning ahead, getting organized, and creating solid routines.

He honed in on outsourcing – getting shallow work OFF of his plate so that he had more time to do the work that would push his shelter forward.

He set a “blown away” goal during the 8-week Bootcamp to automate the systems and infrastructure of his business so that his team could flourish without him overworking himself… And he DID IT!

Now, he can take a real vacation and raise a glass to a job well done. 

Time tracking has transformed the approach I take to life. I don’t wait for it to come to me, but rather make use of my God-given gifts of choice and will that propel me toward being my very best self each and every day!

The result

Sean is one of those students every coach DREAMS of having. He was always willing and eager to dig deep, get uncomfortable and GROW.

In his post-Bootcamp survey, he ranked the improvement the Bootcamp has had on his life as a 10/10

He says he saves an average of 3 hours a day just as a result of the systems he built inside the program. That’s upwards of 15 hours EVERY WEEK!

More importantly, he said he got a 10x return on the amount he invested in the program. 

His time in the Bootcamp had such a profound impact on him that his husband took notice as well.

Now, the two of them use Asana together and have incorporated a lot of Lifehack Bootcamp methods – like pre-planning their grocery shopping and meals – into their home life!

How amazing is that?! 

If you want to have a life where you can have it all – the career, the marriage, the family, the health, the fulfillment– without having to DO it all, then the 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp could be for you.
