Time Management Tools: To Do Lists, Calendars & More

Thursday, August 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Course Number: PD0031

It seems that more than ever, people are living busy, chaotic lives that often leave them feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Between work, parental responsibilities, community involvement, exercise, hobbies, friendships, family responsibilities and more, sometimes it feels as if keeping track of it all is just impossible. Fortunately, there are many tools available to help people gain control, though sometimes sorting through what’s available can add what seems like even more chaos to life. Smartphones, day planners, alarms, e-mail systems, priority grids, voice mail systems, note pads, to-do lists, contact lists, address books, folders, file cabinets and more—the purpose of this lunch-and-learn is to help you sort through the tools available to help you organize your life, and pick the ones that will work for you.

  • Describe tools for managing appointments
