Time Management for the 21st Century


The barrage of information coming at us from multiple sources (e.g., texts, email, tweets, blogs, and alerts), coupled with the demands of our careers, are overwhelming and distracting. The sheer volume of information threatens our ability to think clearly and make wise decisions about what’s important. If we react to these stimuli without clear discernment, we fail to accomplish the goals that matter most in our professional and personal lives.

“I thought the email onslaught was impossible to tame, but 6 weeks after the class I can say it is under control on most days.” 5 Choices January 2013 participant
