Working from Home PROGRAMME

10 rules for well-being, productivity and success

"I have used a lot of self-development programmes before and I was already pretty efficient and effective, but the Working from Home programme has taken me to the next level. It is based on the best science and helped me to understand how to build and refine small helpful habits that make my life easier. It showed me simple and practical things to do that take minutes but save me hours.

Now I understand how my brain works I can plan my day to not only optimise clever thinking and creativity, but also downtime and relaxation. The programme has made it easier to manage my A.P.E. Brain, reduce stress and fulfil my potential when working from home." 
- John Buckley, Digital Marketing Consultant, Modo25 


Hi, my name is Dr. Jon Finn (Tougher Minds Founder). I know that working from home can present the following negative feelings and challenges

I know this can be stressful, challenging and frustrating. So I have used our uniquely powerful and award-winning insights to create the easy to use 'Working from Home programme'.

This programme will teach you how to build better habits for working from home successfully - in as little as 10 minutes per day.

You will learn simple and practical skills to:
- Understand yourself and others better
- Increase resilience 
- Reduce stress
- Feel better
- Increase motivation
- Be more productive 
- Save hours each day 
“This is NOT the Art of working from home successfully, it is the science.”

Build new habits in only 10 minutes per day

This programme is designed to not ONLY help you gain more knowledge. It is designed to help you apply the knowledge, so that you can build new habits. Dr. Finn will show you how to move from knowledge, to skill, to habit
We understand that everyone is different, and what works for some might not work for others.  So we are not prescriptive. You can work through the programme at your own pace. Take your time whilst doing this and only work on things that are most helpful for you.

Build new habits one small step at a time. Use the programme as little as 10 minutes per day (or do more if you want).
