Let’s Tame The Chaos is a digital, self-paced course for overwhelmed and overcommitted women, by productivity specialist, Valerie Recore.

Imagine This…

We’re one year into a global pandemic. You wake up in the morning, determined to get it all done. It’s going to happen, you’re sure of it.

There are piles of laundry everywhere. You’re not even sure what’s at the bottom of them as they’ve been there for months.

There are dishes in the sink, on the counter, probably some in the living room. Hopefully none in the kids’ room.

You have several meetings today. Your to-do list for work feels endless.

Your kids are doing remote learning for the next two weeks due to possible COVID-19 exposure at school.

Someone needs to walk the dog. It’s not going to be you. It’s time someone else in the house stepped up here.

You’re likely having frozen pizza again because who has the time to think about dinner right now!

You’re already exhausted, it’s barely 7:30AM and the coffee isn’t working.

You’re so over this. You just want to crawl back in bed. Or find somewhere quiet to sit and have a moment to yourself.

What if there’s a better way?

What if, with some simple steps, you can stop spending your day putting out fires and start ending your days feeling accomplished?

What if, you could gain tools to know you are doing what you need to be doing each day?

The Let’s Tame The Chaos digital course takes you step-by-step through ways to calm your spinning brain and help you feel like you have control over your days. And it does it quickly (in less than 25 minutes) because I know you don’t have much time!

What is this thing? 

Let’s Tame The Chaos is a quick (less than 20-25 minutes) digital mini-course giving you guidance on changing your relationship with time. It helps you: 

  • Calm the spinning brain.
  • Identify priorities and next steps on your task list. 
  • Make better choices in how you spend your time.
  • Manage the decision-fatigue!

Right now, life is overwhelming!

The dishes and laundry feel endless. The kids are leaving a trail of toys everywhere they go and refusing to pick them up.

The work tasks and emails keep piling up too. You’re tired. You’re wanting to run for the hills (or maybe the closest beach).

You keep thinking each day that you’re finally going to get somewhere with your to-do list. You’re going to make it happen! Then the end of the day hits and you feel like you’ve gotten nowhere plus you’ve added 5 more things to the list!

But what if you could start each day knowing what 3-5 tasks are most important? If you could move through the day preventing fires instead of putting them out? If you could end each day knowing you accomplished what you needed to and everything else can wait?

What if you had time for yourself and your family?

Let’s Tame The Chaos helps you be more efficient, more proactive, and end each day with a sense of accomplishment.

Who am I to help you? 

Because I’ve been there! I’ve looked at my to-do list and thought, ‘I got this’, only to reach the end of my day and wonder what happened! I’ve wondered how I said yes to so many things I’m feeling overcommitted!

I’m Valerie Recore, a productivity coach and owner of Stride Productivity, working with overwhelmed and overcommitted women because I believe we are all capable of building habits and systems to help us carve out time for ourselves and our families. I believe we can use our time better! And I want to help others be more productive, stop putting out fires, and know what to focus on each day.

I’ve used the tools in this mini-course in my own life and I know they work! I’ve used them with my clients. I know you’re busy and overwhelmed (and don’t think you even have time to do this!). That’s why I made this mini-course quick and simple! You can apply what you learn today! I know that even small changes can make a big difference. And I believe your future self will thank you!

So, what do you get inside this mini-course? 

Let’s take a look. You’ll get just a little bit of my sarcasm, maybe some humor, and lots of ideas on how to improve your relationship with time. 

We talk about how to calm your spinning brain. How to get everything out of your head and written down (or documented on the computer). Your brain is not meant to hold your task list!

Then we talk about what to do with all of those tasks! How do we tackle them in a way that isn’t so overwhelming? We look at how organizing your schedule is like organizing a pantry. It helps when similar items are placed together!

There are tips for when you just don’t know what to do next. And how to handle the many decisions we have every day (Decisions fatigue anyone?!) And we talk about why family meetings are so important.

At the end of this mini-course, you’ll be ready to deal with your task list, know what to do next, and even find some time to put your feet up and relax a little (it is ok to do this every now and then!)


How long does this take?

It should take you 20-25 minutes to read through the mini-course. Take another 15-30 minutes to tackle the activities provided.

I don’t have time!

Think of it this way. What happens if you don’t make any changes now? Where will you be in 3 months, 6 months, a year? What happens if you do start making changes, even small ones? Where will you be in 6 months, a year? You can make the time to take a 20-minute course and a few more minutes to complete the activities. This will help you!

How does this work?

First, you take 25 minutes to read the material. Then you take some time to work through the activities in the workbook. Then, you apply what you’ve learned in your life – planning your time so that you are more proactive!

Who is this for? 

This mini-course is for overwhelmed women. Are you struggling with figuring out what tasks to focus on each day? Tired of constantly putting out fires? Do you want to feel like you are making progress toward the big projects in your life? Then this is for you! 

This mini-course is for overwhelmed moms! Are you constantly juggling house and work tasks, feeling like you’re getting nowhere? Tired of putting out fires and not feeling like you’re able to get to what’s on your to-do list? Do you want to end each day feeling accomplished and at peace? Let’s do this!


It was scary to identify all the tasks on my list but Valerie was right there to encourage me. It’s so much better to have it all documented and out of my head! Instead of running around crazy, thinking I can do the 25 things on my list in one day, I know that only having 3-5 things each day is much more doable! I also liked the step-by-step strategies, particularly the one to group all these tasks into like things. I did it by floor of the house, computer/phone tasks, and outside errands. That helped keep me focused too. It’s been satisfying to cross the tasks off and also a lesson for me that the 25 things take weeks, not hours. This course helped me be more realistic about my time and put less pressure on myself. – CG
