Time Matters!

Duration: 2 days

Program Outline

Time is the precious capital of life and the single biggest shortage among busy executives and managers today. Most of us suffer from time poverty! The phrase "I don’t have time!" echoes everywhere. People may have opportunities, but they don’t have the time to actualize them. They may have money, but no time to enjoy those things that money can buy. "I am not free!" very accurately summarized how some of us have lost our freedom running the daily rat race as a rat! It doesn’t need to be that way! And most of all, you don’t need to be a rat.

Time management is life management. It is about how you take care of your most precious gift & resource. As Benjamin Franklin put it, "Do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff that life is made of".

THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME. This is the biggest difference that 21st century time management systems must address. Traditional time management systems imply that you can catch-up or get things under control. Forget it. You can't. Most of my clients tell me they could work 24x7 and still not get all tasks done. REAL TIME MASTERY is about managing yourself to cope with NOT getting things done and to INVEST time on the really important things in your work & in your life.

Time Matters! is designed to equip you with a comprehensive set of workable principles & useable tools that are relevant in this fast pace world. The workshop will enable you to quickly gain mastery of managing time & priorities. You will learn how to make better choices - in your career as well as your private life. As you master the system of managing time, you will gain mastery of life & take proactive control over your own future.

Imagine what you can create for yourself, your company & your loved ones if you overcome time poverty! Imagine what you can achieve if you can free yourself to do the things that matter most… Just image the possibilities…
