Managing time feels like trying to hold onto a jellyfish. It's slippery, amorphous, and elusive. Most people only have a vague sense of where their hours go. As a result, some people choose to work harder instead of smarter. They work more hours, longer days, and still fall short of all that is needed to get the job done.
Frustration, lack of fulfillment, and exhaustion set in...and you can imagine how this then affects their health and, of course, their relationships with those they live and work with!

My client, Barbara, was on a mission to double her business revenues this year. She had hit a plateau and was in total frustration with her business, and herself. "I was always working but had little reward to show for it. There just aren't enough hours in the day."
It is important, no imperative, to find the time wasters in your business and your day. For example, through our coaching sessions, Barbara realized she was spending way too much time on meetings and Boards that were more historical than relevant to her business now. When she added up the hours each month for meetings, drive time, and follow up time needed, Barbara did the tough job of letting go, saying NO, and delegating more to others. Bottom line: Barbara got a grip: she now has more than 7 hours a month available for her to use in revenue-generating time. This achievement is in total support to her ultimate goal to double her business revenue this year!
