Columbus and Southern Ohio: class: Manage Your Time to Ensure Your Success

Thursday, May 31 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

We've all heard about this concept called time management, the skill to create more efficiency and productivity in a job or project. A simple Google search will inundate you with blog posts about "Urgent vs. Important" tasks, templates for effective to-do lists, and loads of citations to studies proving that multi-tasking doesn't actually work. 

 

This workshop takes it a step further, by breaking down individual barriers to productivity, addressing procrastination behaviors, and creating real-life solutions to your real-life struggles with time and efficiency. Join Jessica May, Training Coordinator for the Women's Business Center (former procrastinator and terrible manager of time) as she walks you through hands-on activities to help you quite literally get over yourself and build a more efficient, more productive, and more lucrative business for yourself.
