The one thing we cannot create more of is time. It is the most constrained resource we have. So how we use it is critically important. We must be effective in our use of time – focused on priorities – and we must be efficient in our use of time. This makes time management critically important to all professionals and students. So, how are you doing in this area?

“I now understand myself much better than ever before – my strengths, my developmental opportunities, and my natural bent. Being more aware of my thinking patterns, my behaviors, and my motivations has positively impacted every area of my life, especially those that involve how I manage my time. I used to over overly-stressed, lacking enough time in my day, and often running late. Not so anymore. I am much more effective at managing my time now, being less stressed, and staying on time. This program definitely helps people optimally manage their lives.”Dawn W., Professional, Columbus, OH
