Event Description

It can feel impossible sometimes to meet our responsibilities and commitments, both professional and personal without sacrificing something important. Do you find yourself regularly having to “put out fires” instead of engaging in deep scholarly work? Are you losing sleep to cross items off your must-do list? Do you have the feeling that you have to choose between having a life and doing your job? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you: please come prepared to be open and honest with yourself.

This workshop will help you to identify your time management strengths and weaknesses. You will also learn a number of tried-and-true methods and receive resources that will help you to feel more confidently in control of your day to day life. Finally, you will have some time to reflect and assess what you have learned to determine what will be your personal best practices to manage your life at UBC and beyond.

Any personal technology that you use daily (phones, tablets, laptops, agenda books, calendars) is welcome in this workshop, but not required. There will be optional implementation time following this one-hour workshop.
