Turn Goal Setting Upside Down!

There is no such thing as managing time. We all get 24 hours a day and we get to choose how we spend it. The status quo is to be busy, swamped, and to have a never-ending to-do list. What if there was a better way to live and work?

Learn how to bust procrastination habits, convert that to-do list into manageable priorities, and how tracking 168 hours can change your life. Learn how deep work and mindfulness can change your business ►
