It’s official – there is simply too much to do to ever get it all done! Funding cuts, fewer staff, higher expectations for programming and services…it all adds up to “not enough time in the day.”
Our first priority is to take care of our patrons, of course. But that’s just the beginning of what’s on our to-do list every day.
And as much as we’d like it to be, surrender is NOT an option. Instead, it’s time we “arrest the time robbers” that steal that precious commodity when we aren’t paying attention!
Whether it’s those inconvenient interruptions, marathon meetings, or your own propensity to procrastinate, we’ll discover specific ways to deal with each of these time robbers – but first you have to recognize them.
Don’t miss this opportunity to step back and see where your time really goes – and discover how you can gain control of your time to serve your patrons even better than before!
