Description: Do you ever feel like your day is one, long series of interruptions? You start the day with your to do list in hand, or at least you have an idea in your head of what you want to accomplish. Then you turn around and it’s 6:00. The day is gone and you’re left wondering what you did.
If this is you, you’re not alone. The bad news is interruptions are taking a toll on your practice and your life. The good news is you can change things. You just need to learn how to take control of your calendar and get rid of needless interruptions. You can do this. By getting rid of some bad habits and creating some new ones, you’ll learn that 20 minutes really can change your life.
Participants will learn several time management strategies designed to reduce interruptions, increase focus, and improve productivity and effectiveness.
