We all struggle with time. You probably first realized that you struggle with time management when you were in college, and felt that it wasn’t on your side. You went to school and then work. After work, you start to realize that you haven’t even had lunch and it’s already 11 o’clock at night. With that turning into your daily routine, you probably started thinking to yourself that you don’t have time for anything. Once you change the way you think, you’ll realize that you can make time for anything.

Here are some things people struggle with that correlates with time:

  1. Goal setting
  2. Prioritization
  3. Concentration/Focus
  4. Self-motivation
  5. Work/Life Balance
