Time Management Course Outline

Managing time effectively is fundamental to success. It also factors into achieving balance in our lives. Today, we’re busier than ever – at work and at home. Having enough time for things that are important, things we want or need to do, or even to have enough time to devote to a special project, there just isn’t enough time to go around.

This course is a practical “how to” that will guide you through the maze of conflicting priorities, self-doubts, disorganization, over-commitments, and limitations that in the past have kept you from successfully managing time. It offers a step-by-step format for achieving balance between your personal and professional lives.

As this course shows, managing time isn’t just about making lists. It’s about everything that encompasses your daily routine. Discover how beliefs and values factor into success. Find out what part sleep and nutrition play. Learn how including yourself in your “to do’s” helps create time for “special” projects you’ve put on the back burner. See how to stop wasting time on annoying situations. Learn to carve out more time for friends and family.

If life is in the details, then manage them well. This eleven-session course encompasses a variety of tools that, if used, will help you achieve what we all want – more time for things that matter and a better ability to manage it all. Making the time for this course could just be the key to creating enough time for you.
