This course is one of two sister courses, along with Time Management: Solve your Time Management Problems.

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!

After taking this course you'll be able to: 

  • Balance the extremes of your personality to find productivity, success, and happiness in the middle
  • Turn dull, mundane tasks into jobs you can do really well, and get pleasure from
  • Apply Mike Clayton's powerful OATS principle to gain control of your working day
  • Set goals so that you really do achieve them
  • Distinguish between what is important in your life, and what is merely urgent
  • Tame your to do list and convert it into your formula for productive delivery
  • Schedule activities into your day for maximum productivity and minimum work left over at the end of the day
  • Schedule your time to produce better work and get more done
  • Say "NO" with confidence, to keep in control of your time and, ultimately, to increase the respect people have for you

This course is for anyone who: 

  • want to get do more, get more, and live more.
  • is busy and want to get even more done...
  • can't help themselves from saying 'yes' to things they ought to say 'no' to...
  • find things always take longer than they expected...
  • don't know how to plan your time in a way that works for you...
  • just don't have enough time.
