Nine Strategies of Effective Time Management

Let Your Priorities Determine Your Tasks,
Not the Other Way Around

If you want to go to the movies, you drive to the theater and park. You don’t drive somewhere else, park, and then try to find the movie theater. If you do, you may never get there. How can you keep the main thing the main thing?

Do you often take work home with you in the evenings and on weekends because you can’t finish it at the office? Do you often feel like you’re having trouble making time for what’s most important to you because you spend all of your time reacting to what’s urgent? CSL will address all of these questions and more - including how you manage not only your time, but also the expenditure and renewal of your energy - in this session on the latest developments in time management.

Yogi Berra once said, “If you keep doin’ what you been doin’, you’ll keep gettin’ what you been gettin’.” You will not only leave this session with new time management strategies to move forward with – you will also unlearn and purge old strategies that have been cluttering up your schedule and moving you in the wrong direction.
