Time Management: Make It Happen
Constructing a to-do list is something you can do easily. But exerting your willpower is not enough to finish your tasks and achieve your goals. You have to commit to specific time in order to fulfill your goals. Time management does not simply mean that you do more extra things. It is about how you plan your days in a way that works for you to accomplish your goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Learn how to manage your time and energy, which is the skill you will need the most after you return to work.
