    Event Description:
    The Women in Business group uses the LEAN IN model to frame our conversation around leadership and overall empowerment. This session will focus on shattering the myth that there just isn't enough time in the week for working professionals to live happy, balanced and productive lives. There are 168 hours in each week. How do we find time for what matters most?
     
    During this session you will gain insight on how time is very elastic and every minute we spend should be our choice. According to Laura Vanderkam, author of I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make the Most of Their Time, "It's about looking at the whole of one's time and seeing where the good stuff can go. I truly believe this. There is time. Even if we are busy, we have time for what matters. And when we focus on what matters, we can build the lives we want in the time we've got.
     
    The takeaways from this session will be the following:
    • I don't have time = It's not a priority
    • Time is a choice. Fill your life with things that deserve to be there
    • Friday afternoon is a golden time to set goals for the following week

    In preparation for the meeting please write down a few goals you committed yourself to doing before the end of the summer, but haven't found time to complete and a few commitments that you have been able to check off your list.

     If you cannot get through any of these items, don't fret! There is still plenty to be gained in these meetings for new faces to the most prepared participants. It's wonderfully organic!
