How I Stopped Micromanaging Myself

  I was "The King of To-Do Lists". Back in the 80’s when there were no electronic devices, a student at the university told me, “You are my role model for being well organized.

Gold Time - an end to overwhelm!

  Gold Time is probably the most ‘used-but-misused’ of the fundamental principles underpinning the Best Year Yet® system. Thousands of us say we practice Gold Time, but in reality few of us do it really well, all of the time. Of the hundreds of executives I’ve coached over the last 15 years, individually or in teams, the really impressive ones have, without exception, become Masters of Gold Time. Their secret is investing time in attending to the topics that matter in the long run....
