Who has time to keep all those New Year’s Resolutions? Find out how to manage your time at the Fernandina Beach Branch Library. June Carter, professional organizer, will present the program, “The 34 Minute Time Management Process” on Monday, January 23 from 7-8 pm.
The 34 Minute Time Management Process separates the IMPORTANT from the URGENT and realigns priorities. Give it 34 minutes and see life shift for you. Avoid the trap of believing that all urgent activities are also important. Improve efficiency, free up time and create the environment that will support you.

The 34 Minute Time Management Process has been shared with colleagues, architects, students, sales professionals and employees with measurable results.
