Episode 21: Dr. Joe Serio – Time Management – 50 Lessons on Finding Time for What’s Important

In It's All About The Questions by Laura



Time Engagement? Self-Management? Time Management is a spiritual pursuit? What I do know is the time we have on this planet is finite. Once a day is over, it is over. We cannot get that time back and our future time is unknown. We may have days, weeks, months, years or just seconds left on this planet. How we spend our time is a choice.

But how do you decide where to spend your time? I teach goal setting and time management and I am the first person to tell you that some days I have no idea where the day went and I certainly don’t always see forward momentum towards a goal. Some days I think time managment is more perseverance than perfection.

My guest just released the latest book in his Get the Nerve to Succeed Series; Time Management – 50 Lessons on Finding Time for What’s Really Important. If you are looking to become more productive on what really matters, you won’t want to miss this show.

I myself had a few ahas as I was thinking over the show on my way home from the radio station. Share with me on twitter what made you stop and think. Tweet to me @TheLauraSteward!

 

Getting the Nerve to Succeed

Dr. Joe Serio has cracked the code for improving personal leadership, decreasing stress, and increasing productivity. But before he did that, he had to deal with the fear that was holding him back.

His quest to live his best life has taken Dr. Serio to some unlikely places.

Dr. Serio was a founding instructor of an institute for ethical leadership development for a county government agency and is a regular instructor on overcoming fear, emotional intelligence, time management, positive interaction with difficult people, leadership, customer service, public speaking, and managing personal finances at county government agencies, associations, and corporations.
