COURSE OVERVIEW & CONTENT:
“Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant PERSISTENCE.” Napoleon Hill
The secret to keeping an effective time management system is to constantly review it and make sure you don’t gradually fall back to bad habits. This course provides a series of advanced guidelines for those who want to push the boundaries and stay on top of their workloads. This course is designed to encourage discussions among delegates so not only they can benefit from the guidelines provided but also from each other. Many people develop tricks or come across useful time saving tips. The course is carefully designed to maximise this interaction so delegates can constantly learn new materials during the course.
The course focuses on two aspects of productivity; attitude adjustment and environmental engineering. Correct attitude helps an individual filter through tasks and focus on what matters the most. Environmental engineering helps individuals free their mind from tracking mundane tasks and instead focus on critical activities. This allows users to constantly focus on goals and push forward through the clutter encountered in day-to-day life.
People who want to become successful need to know how to manage their time well. They will always have some kind of a system to deal with day-to-day tasks. The purpose of this course is to help participants review their current systems and fine tune it using various productivity techniques.
Participants must complete Time Management course before taking this workshop.
