Proper Planning for Managing Projects and Priorities

Learn how to use proper planning techniques to help you get things done.

In the 21st century it is common for individuals to spend more than a 40-hour work week in order to complete assigned projects on time. This causes physical and emotional stress and life balance that is out-of-whack. This program shows you how important the 'up-front' stuff, meaning planning and prioritizing, is to a project that is completed on time while progressing from the assignment date to the completion date at a relaxed yet steady pace. The planning and prioritizing principles taught in this material work for long range goals and assignments as well as daily workflow and execution. You will be amazed at how much more you can get done in the hours you spend at work and how much self-discipline you have to avoid interruptions and the company gossip grapevine. You'll enter an elite circle of achievers.
