Time is a resource as well as a premium.  When tasks and obligations increase, we need to accomplish more in the same amount of time.  Unfortunately, critical and strategic work is often neglected and the majority of people employ ineffective strategies to complete all of their responsibilities.  By the end of this session, participants will learn how they can be more intentional with their time and mindfully complete the essential tasks.  The session will also explore and discuss the cognitive science and power of timing as it relates to when to do particular tasks.
