When was the last time you felt productive? 

Do you feel like you spend all of your time on have-tos and never get around to the want tos?

Are your responsibilities spinning out of control with no end – and no progress – in sight?

As we enter the next phase of the “no longer new” normal, it’s time to reassess, re-evaluate, and embrace a more productive lifestyle.

Join authors Paula Rizzo, Listful Living: A List-Making Journey to a Less Stressed You, and Debra Eckerling, Your Goal Guide: A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals for a conversation on productivity. Rizzo and Eckerling will offer their take on the frequently asked questions they get on productivity, time management, and finding the elusive work-life balance.

Whether you continue to work from home or are entering a hybrid work-situation, one thing is certain: any shift in activity can lead to a change in routine. Changes in routine can lead to chaos. And chaos has a tendency to spiral. And no one wants that!

Let Paula and Debra guide you with their advice and insights, so you can discover how to make the most of your time!

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals

Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
