How many times have you called a business contact to set up an appointment, only to discover that your first choice for a meeting date was already filled on his calendar? Did you panic or feel rejected? Probably not. More than likely, you just said something like, “Well then, what about Tuesday?” The point is, everyone understands when you say you already have an appointment, and they work around it. You can use this same principle to protect your time so that you can complete valuable projects. Just make an appointment with yourself!
 In our Time Management Training Classes we call this “time blocking.” Set aside on your schedule the amount of time that you believe you will need to complete a project, and don’t give any of it away to anyone else for anything except a genuine, life-and-death emergency. If someone wants to meet with you, simply say, “I’m sorry, but I have an appointment then. Let’s try next week, shall we?” This is just one of the nifty tips we will teach you how to use in the class. Put them all together, and you will have a powerful package of tools and strategies to get more high value items done in less time, increase your overall productivity tremendously, and reduce your stress level at the same time.
 Our Time Management courses & seminars are available throughout both the US and Canada.

On-site Time Management Training: can be tailored to the needs of your organization and delivered on-site at a time and location of your choice or you can attend one of our open enrollment course (s).
