This week's spotlight course is Maximize Your Productivity by Managing Time and Taks (21 min).
The amount of time available to you is constant – you can't buy more and you can't save it for later. However, by managing your time, you can increase your productivity. And the better you understand your own personal productivity, the easier it will be to manage your time effectively.
