Running TOO Fast (too busy to live)
Idea-rich strategies to regain your life - 8th edition

"I resolve to live with all my might, while I do live. I resolve never to lose one moment of time and to improve my use of time, in the most profitable way I possibly can. I resolve never to do anything I wouldn't do, if it were the last hour of my life" - Jonathan Edwards

We are committed to working with serious leaders who have overcommitted and want to regain control of their lives and careers; who want to more effectively lead their teams to productive and profitable growth in their roles. We can help you regain and profitably leverage your time.
