Scheduling unscheduled time
Scheduling unscheduled time? As a Time Management Coach I’m all about time management of course, but not for the sole purpose of just getting more checked off of your to do list. My emphasis is about managing your time in order to have more work-life balance which means:

- Time for your relationships.
- Time for personal development.

Scheduling unscheduled time – how to…
It’s easier than you think to dedicate a block of time with nothing in it. But the intention of not planning anything for that block of time has to be there. Time management tips for your unscheduled time:

- Remember to set an alarm of notification so that you can stop whatever you are doing.
- Schedule unscheduled time on a day and at a time that you can be alone and just be.

You can schedule a confidential one hour session that we can do by phone in the comfort of your home or office. It makes a great gift, too!
