Time Management is Not Logical – It’s Emotional. How to Be the Boss of Your Time

Do you wish you could live in a place of calm rather than hurry? Imagine how it would feel to wake up each day with zero resentments for your upcoming to-dos. Here is a fact: we cannot create more time, but we can use our existing time to empower who and what is most important. And, ultimately, choose empowered calm in a world of hurry. This collaborative session will:

  • Examine the underlying emotional drivers of time management
  • Present a formula for determining what to say yes to (and what to say no to)
  • Explore how we can use our time to empower who and what is most important
  • Dismantle the beliefs and barriers that hold us in a place of hurry rather than calm
