Time Management is a lot like the weather--everyone talks about it, but very few do anything about it. When all the various things that take our time converge such as workload, priorities, time, resources, company sturcture, accountability and sad to say procrastination we find ourselves slipping back. Very few are successful even when they try to do something about managing their time. The reason for this failure is two-fold. First, most of us are not in complete control of our time (customers, bosses, employees, and/or family can demand that we give them immediate attention). The second hinges on the first. When we are unable to keep the schedule, we feel bad about ourselves and few of us will keep doing something that makes us feel bad. Hence, within a week or two at the most we have gone back to our old habits. This program has been designed to help the participants understand the areas over which they do have control and how to best utilize that time.
