Are you getting results? …


Discover the faster, simpler way to better results.


Make the most of what you've got. Be the author of your life and write your story forward. Getting Results the Agile Way helps you make the most of work and life. Agile Results is a simple time management system for meaningful results that combines some of the best methods for improving your thinking, feeling, and taking action. Unleash YOUR best by spending your time on the right things, at the right time, with the right energy, the right way.


Why

I created this system as a way to help you write your story forward. Getting results in today's landscape is tough. Our world changes faster than we can keep up. Worse, we don't always learn the right skills we need such as time management, focus, or simple productivity.


How

By using three stories to drive your day, your week, and your year you take charge of your life and learn to live life on your terms. By spending your time on the right things, with the right energy, at the right time, with the right approach, you learn to unleash your best. As you learn and respond, you build momentum. This momentum carries you, supporting everything you do.

What Others are Saying

"Agile Results delivers know-what, know-why and know-how for anyone who understands the value of momentum in making your moments count."

– Dr. Rick Kirschner, bestselling author

"JD’s ability to understand and cut to the real issues and then apply techniques that have proven to be successful in other situations is legendary at Microsoft. Over the years I have learnt that he will not recommend something or someone unless he believe it the entire value chain, making the advice you get even more potent. It’s a little like a whirlwind and you have to be prepared for a ride but if you want results and you want them fast, you talk to JD."

– Mark Curphey, Product Unit Manager, Microsoft

“JD is the go-to-guy for getting results, and Agile Results demonstrates his distinct purpose – he shows how anyone can do anything, better. This book has simple, effective, powerful tools and ideas that are easy enough for everyone to apply in their work and lives, so that they get the results they’d like, even the impossible and the unexpected.”

– Janine de Nysschen, Changemaker and Purpose Strategist, Whytelligence
