Course description

Time and Priority Management

How to use the compass, not the clock

We’re all faced with more competing demands on our time than ever before. But do we even know where our time goes?

Knowing how we spend it is the first step towards being able to control how we spend it. What non-essential activities can you drop? If there are things you can’t drop, how can you manage them better? How can you be more intentional about how you run your day?

This is an opportunity to explore different approaches to time and priority management. How can you manage interruptions better? How can you structure your day around your peak energy moments? How can you make your life easier by using the compass, not the clock?
