About Me

My name is Adrian Shepherd. I’m a best-selling author, Asia’s #1 Time Management Expert and the creator of the One-Bite Time Management System.

I started out my career teaching English at a small school in Japan, but quickly realized the limitations of a 9-to-5 job. That sent me down the entrepreneurial path where I got involved in franchises, multi-level marketing, and partnerships. Despite some early success, I ran into trouble which forced me to look for answers. I picked up books such as Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and Tony Robbins’ Awaken The Giant Within and in doing so found myself focusing on personal development. Those experiences made me realize that regardless of our industry or profession, one constant for success remained: time.

However, it wasn’t until a close friend of mine, the owner of a multimillion-dollar corporation, suffered serious health issues from his lifestyle that I decided something had to be done. I bought every book, audio program and DVD training on personal development and time management on the market in hopes of finding answers. I found that while many time management programs available are effective, most of them required people to learn a whole new system. You might call it the equivalent of going “cold turkey” on their lifestyle. The result: few people ever succeed in changing their lives. I wanted to develop a program that people could implement step-by-step, achieving maximum results in minimum time, completely stress-free.

Albert Einstein once said, “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.”

I knew from my background in education that the key to success in learning anything is breaking things down into simple, understandable concepts that people can grasp easily. I took that knowledge and went on to develop The One-Bite Time Management System (TMS), a revolutionary new system based entirely around simplicity: small bites that people can digest easily.

My expertise has allowed me to share my thoughts on numerous publications including Inc.com, the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, Influencive, CEOWorld Magazine and The Good Men Project.

Today, I consult with businesses and individuals on the topics of time management, personal development or joint ventures to help boost productivity, reduce stress and increase profits. I am based in Osaka, Japan.
