How to Increase Your Peace and Triple Your Productivity: A Session for Busy Professionals
Presenter: Tony D’Angelo, Collegiate Empowerment
Thursday, November 16 | 8:00–11:30 am

Nighttime programming. Weekend events. 14-hour work days. Nonstop emails. Way too many phone calls. Student demands. And unscheduled meeting requests. IT'S NO WONDER why burnout happens within four to six years! You’re not alone, and it’s time to get some answers to the biggest problem: Every day can be—and often is—a work day.

The purpose of time is to fuel your purpose and legacy. Are you using your time to your best advantage? It’s time to stop your hectic routine to see where your hectic routine is actually taking you. Your time is your property: take back your property, take back your time. You can’t lead others until you first lead yourself.

You will schedule…

  • Peace days: Get back to what’s most important to you personally
  • People days: Take care of the relationships in your life
  • Preparation days: Get ready to do your best work
  • Performance days: Do your best work
