Final Inspiration
What is Your Dream?
Where Do You Start Today?
Time Management

Time is really an emotion. A feeling.

A way of looking at life that provides an emotional state.

Time Management therefore,
is really Self Management.

Time management involves taking control over the meaning you
give to things and what you want to achieve in your life.
#2 Manage Your Time
What Really is Time?

Strategies for Success in Life and Learning
"Learn how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you...If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you." ~Anthony Robbins
The Controlling Forces of Life: Pain and Pleasure
The Past Does Not = The Future. You
can decide to be whoever you want to be.
Aim for the A
Just Do It!
makes the challenge worthwhile.
Here's the Truth:
People who get what they want tend to be the ones who make the effort to
what they want.
Balance Is Key

Sleep: 56
Usable Hrs: 112 hrs./week
1/3 Academic
1/3 Personal Commitments
(sports, job, clubs, spiritual, exercise, grooming and laundry)
1/3 Social
(friends, family, networking, meals, free time)
