Employees everywhere are getting busier, faced with competing demands and higher levels of urgency. Many of us are feeling increasingly stressed and overwhelmed.
To survive the challenges of our 24/7 culture, many of us multitask constantly, just to keep our Inbox from getting out of control and to feel a sense of control that we’re paying attention to everything that’s on our plate.

In a world where our priorities can shift on a dime and new projects and requests regularly emerge, adopting a new approach to re-gaining control of our time can yield personal and professional benefits.
