Getting Twice as Much Done Print
I take Time Management very seriously.
I have conducted over 2,000 presentations as a professional speaker on Time Management over the last twenty years to over 100, 000 people.
But a good laugh now and then is as important as our serious side. So, I have accumulated some of the most off beat Time Management tips for you to get twice as much done.
I know you’ll get a chuckle or two from them.
