Time is not a force to be managed, but a dimension to be shaped. Learn to sculpt it.

If you are a creative whose efforts to get organized aren’t working, here’s what I most want you to know: it’s not you, it’s your systems.

Conventional approaches to organization are designed by and for more linear thinkers. Those models will never be effective for someone whose mind doesn’t work that way.

And those models are based on a limited view of Time itself. Time is more flexible than fixed. It’s more spiral than arrow. It’s more relationships than measurements. It’s more dimension than force. Like you and your brain, it has properties ignored by the average day planner.

When you approach organization with tools and techniques designed around the way Time actually works and the way your brain naturally thinks – it turns out you can shape Time to your liking.

Time can become a pleasant, comfortable space you actually want to inhabit. A space you can navigate with confidence. A space where doing what needs doing is more joy than struggle. A space where there is some space. A space where you can be yourself – and still be successful.

Sculpting Time is all about composition – the skillful arrangement of elements – something as a creative you already understand better than you realize. Effectively planning your week or creating systems to keep track of the details are just a matter of mastering this particular medium.

And this is the place to do it. Third Hand Works is an atelier, a studio school – a place where we study the theory and practice of shaping and moving through Time.

Welcome. I’m delighted you’re here.
