Is your new year resolution to have more time for all the things you enjoy and your graduate program?  Do you often feel like there is not enough time in the day? Do you feel that you are wasting time and/or do not have enough "me" time?  Are you getting things done, but wish you could do so more effectively, more efficiently, and with less stress?

The start of the new semester and new year is a great time to look inward and find out how to optimize your output and be the most efficient graduate student possible.
Everyone starts with the same amount of hours–so why do some people seem to get so much more done? An inability to manage time efficiently can leave you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and unproductive. This workshop offers practical techniques that you can use to gain control over your day. You'll learn how to plan and prioritize more effectively while managing interruptions and distractions.
