A Matter of Time

  • Manage Your Time & Achieve Your Dreams


    There are only so few hours in a day, how can we spend our time efficiently? We turned to TED for some ideas. Here are a short intro video to watch:

    This is a 2-minute video on writing to do lists and how they are different than goals. Don't forget to break-down your goals into small tasks and "make them small, manageable and specific to increase your chances of getting it done!" This is a good intro video: http://ed.ted.com/on/7iFzKKiq
