Therefore, how you allocate this limited personal resource will determine your success in both your personal and professional life. In this course, we will take a look at some of the ways that you can better manage your time by examining effective ways to handle meetings, interruptions, and your own schedule.

It felt like a listicle of life hacks to find more time in the day, but I want to know why you can stop doing certain things like paperwork and still be okay? Was the other paperwork just not important?
