Course Description

This course is one of two sister courses, along with Time Management: Use Your Time Effectively.

You can't make more time.
But you can make better use of the time you have.

Use your time well and get more out of life.

Nobody has enough time in the busy-busy, 24-hour, non-stop world of Twitter, smartphones, and latte in a cardboard cup.

Yet you want to do more, you want to achieve better things, you want to get more out of the time you have: you wish there were more hours in the day.

Good Time Management cannot give you more time, but it sure can show you how to use the time you have to the greatest effect!
