This series consists of two workshops.
 
Week 1: Time Realism
 
Do you ever feel like there are not enough hours in the day? Do you feel overwhelmed by your to-do list? In this session, we'll explore how to be more realistic about time and identify strategies to make the most of our time. You'll learn about the latest research in linguistics and cognitive science and what it can tell us about how we manage time in an easier, more intuitive, and ultimately more realistic way. The key to effective time management is thinking about your time more realistically.
 
Many time management books and articles make sensational claims, such as "get 10x more done in the next week with this one simple change!" This is not only unrealistic, but it can also be discouraging when we don't see results that match the hype. So if you're ready to learn how to manage your time more effectively, sign up for this workshop today!
 
Week 2: The Science of Prioritizing
 
Social media, emails, work, school, family, friends… it's easy to feel pulled in a million different directions. In this session, we'll explore how to better manage our time and attention in the face of constant demands. You'll learn about the most powerful and effective time management strategy, one that is backed by close to 60 years of scientific research.  This strategy is so effective that it has been adopted by some of the most successful people in the world, including Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Elon Musk. You'll also learn about simple tools that will help you implement this strategy in your own life. We'll also cover the science of prioritizing. So, if you're ready to learn about the latest research on time management and attention, as well as some simple, yet powerful tools to help you take control of your time, then sign up for this workshop today!
