If you’re sick of trying one “surefire time management system” after another, only to wind up right back where you started mere months or even weeks later, let me clue you in on a little secret: There is no such thing as a time management system. Surefire or otherwise, there is no system that allows you to manage time. It’s a finite resource that is beyond your control. There is a way, however, that you can manage your self, purposefully plan your days, and learn to prioritize your own needs, desires and goals … confidently and without feeling guilty. Register Here.
