Finding More Time In Your Day

Finding time is something I still struggle with and try to find solutions to get more done with less. It is something that baffles me. As a leader, executive coach, professor, and a corporate trainer, I still struggle with time management. It is an uphill battle, the minute you have found a system or solution, something else gets thrown at you. I have tried every agenda, journal, system, and strategy. In the process, I have found my own equation to make the most out of my day. Below are some strategies that I have found helpful for me to find more time in my day.
