Your Time, Your Work, Your Life

Life balance is important for everyone in an organisation, regardless of function or seniority. Everyone is working under extreme pressure.  Invariably they say there is not enough time to complete the tasks that are necessary.  Further, they have difficulty assigning priorities to tasks and are often not sure what to do first.

  • Analyse the use of your time
