The "always-on", striving for more, multitasking, 24/7 world we live in is having its toll. We’re getting busier, but not happier. While the "Time Management" movement created more list-makers, it failed to address the heart of why "To-Do" lists tend to trump time for family and how the time to think, reflect and plan was replaced by a bulging email Inbox. Here, business consultant Hugh Culver presents a model for getting to the heart of why we never seem to have enough time and how to create the time we actually need.
Did you know that reducing unwanted interruptions by just twenty minutes a day is the equivalent of finding two weeks of new time in a year? Just like committing deposits to a bank account, the benefits of creating the time you want can be exponential.
A past workaholic, successful business owner and consultant to large corporations, Culver knows a lot about being busy and what defines success. His solution is to redefine the beliefs that drive the behaviour and from there to re-set priorities, create better systems, practice better habits and finally, invest in reflection, review and renewal.
Hugh Culver’s adventure exploits have taken him from the Arctic to the Antarctic and beyond. His business enterprises have included adventure tours, operating a private airline in Southern Chile, eco-whale watching, teaching as an adjunct professor and being the CEO of a corporate consulting firm. He has been a presenter for leading organizations including Imperial Oil, Royal Bank of Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart, Telus, Western Union and more. He lives in Kelowna, BC.
