There's Not Enough Time

How are you prioritizing things in terms of time and energy?

Our great friend Jill Farmer has been asking herself this question over the years. As a time management coach and author, Jill came over to share her insights about how you can actively become an agent of change when it comes to investing time and energy. In a state of tension, our brains shut down and there’s a bigger possibility for errors. Control is also a big topic that comes up in time management. Jill also reflects on how we, as primal animals, process emotions and the relationship with control.

Time management, control management, and emotional processing are all intertwined. Join this wonderful conversation with Jill and you will for sure have food for thought!
