About Maketimeflow

Why a doctor wants to help you flourish.

Like most doctors Narath Carlile, MD MPH went to medical school because he was passionate about helping people live their best lives - to flourish. He witnessed how, ironically, both patients and healthcare professionals were struggling to flourish. After experiencing near burnout himself juggling work, interests and family, he realized that the underlying key to thriving starts with developing your ability to focus on what’s meaningful. A simple foundation, but increasingly hard to achieve in what Cal Newport calls a ‘hyperactive hive-mind’** world.

In 2013, Narath started building solutions for himself, from apps to timers. Over a decade, he developed a framework for ‘human flourishing through peak performance’, integrating research from neuroscience, psychology and data science, from Newport to Seligman and Csikszentmihalyi and continually emerging material.

Today, he and his wife Heli Tuomi offer MakeTimeFlow as a solution for people and organizations who want to unlock flourishing through a skillset that’s become essential in our new ‘attention’ economy, including deep work, intentionality and flow. Narath and Heli live in Boston with their kids and operate from the Harvard iLab & Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC).

** “Hyperactive hive mind” is how author Cal Newport describes our default current work culture of being constantly ‘on’ and how it undermines our performance, success and well-being.

“Excellent, supportive, and wise coaches…. I highly recommend MakeTimeFlow for busy professionals to take back control of time, to be able to do the deep work that really matters to you and is most rewarding.”
