Part I will include a three part self-asessment and will explore the issues involved in choosing a planner that's right for you: paper-based vs. digital/electronic.

Is your head spinning from the daily demands on your time? Do you feel like you're getting nowhere fast? Would you like the satisfaction of knowing that you're using time effectively? Time management isn't just about making schedules and multi-tasking. It's identifying your energy cycles, knowing if you're right or left brain dominated and why that matters, recognizing your personal time management preferences, and much, much more. This topic will be covered over the course of three sessions.
