    Don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed… organize!

    Course Introduction

    We invite you to develop good organizational skills with this course.  You will make an investment in yourself that you can benefit from for many years to come.  One of the hardest parts of getting organised is ridding yourself of unnecessary clutter.  As a result, many people feel completely overwhelmed with clutter but it can be reduced by establishing a clutter cleaning calendar and also by dividing the clutter into manageable chunks.  Along with the calendar, you will learn how to sort tasks by each specific project.  And tasks which should be completed quickly should be tackled first.

    This course will teach participants how to:

    • declutter and
    • organise their lives
    • to be more productive at work and at home.
