Keeping your time your own can be challenging in a world of distractions and
demands. However, there are strategies that you can employ to maintain control over your schedule and prioritize your tasks effectively.

to delegate tasks to others and avoid time-wasting activities like social media
or excessive email checking.

Another helpful tactic is establishing a routine or schedule that you can
stick to. This can help you stay on track with your priorities and avoid distractions
or procrastination.

Additionally, it can be beneficial to develop a system for tracking your
tasks and progress. This can help you stay organized and focused and notice
areas where you may need to adjust your approach.

You can do this by:

·     setting clear boundaries

·        establishing routines

·        staying organize

·        take control of your schedule

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
