The Time Management Memory Jogger™
is written from experience and is
based on how I help busy people
change their work habits, streamline
their processes, and improve how
they use technology. When they do
these things, more time happens. You create
more time for the life you want.
Here is what's covered.
Track your time
to see where it's going.
With a clearer picture of how
you are spending your time, you
will pinpoint the areas that
everything around you.
Disorganization causes you to
waste time when you do not have
seconds to spare. When you clear
the clutter, you will be able to
think more clearly, make better
decisions, and create more

going, how will you get there? You have to determine what is
most important, set priorities,
and then act on your decisions.

and streamline how you work.
Instead of always doing the work
the way you always have,
consider a better, faster way.
Reduce time spent
Too much time is wasted in
meetings that do not accomplish
anything. Pay more attention to
how they are being conducted and
make the necessary changes.
Delegate as much
as you can.
Do you have to do everything
yourself? Enlist the help of other
people so you can spend
sufficient time on your core

About Branding with Your Company
Your very own and unique innate
gifts and talents, your pristine
presentation, your due
diligence, perseverance, your
drive to seek out information,
to explore and learn different
processes, together with your amazing
commitment to quality are those
vehicles that are driving your
successes. Additionally, your
initiatives to share with, to
teach, and to assist others are
to be recognized and applauded.
Personally, I was there during
the genesis of that technology
with which you are sufficiently
familiar. I was even sought out
as a consultant for and have
served on many related
test/trial/beta teams in several
work arenas, including but not
limited to national and
corporate America, et al. Yet,
and without fail, each and every
time I come across a
presentation from you, a piece
of your work, I learn
something new and different
that I am able to incorporate
into my own work commitments and
into my lifestyle. Thank you for
Congratulations young lady! I
look forward to getting my hands

Management Memory Jogger.
