As a busy business professional, what chance do you have? Customer expectations are rising, everyone wants something from you, the marketplace is as consistent as a blind sharpshooter, an overabundance of innovative technology means yesterday’s is obsolete, and there are so many new shiny things to buy! All in all, you are a distracted cocktail of chaos, and chaos is the enemy of thought. To succeed, you need to execute effectively, which means overcoming all the noise and cumbersome technology to manage your time efficiently. This means understanding how your personality style affects your ability to stay organized. This means knowing what parts of your disorganization are your fault and implementing processes that will help. This means it’s time to buckle down and focus. This means you.
