An one minute introdution from Marcel van den Berg, your trainer.

We’ve all had days when our inboxes just never seem to empty, when we don’t get the time to do any or many of the items on our to-do lists, we spend precious time in what turns out to be a pointless meeting, and where we feel utterly flustered by the end of the day because we haven’t been nearly as productive as we needed to be. 

In this regard, it’s important to be clear about what you want to achieve, and knowing what the two or three main drivers of results in your job are. The big things you want to achieve in life you must put first. The trick is learning how to do that. 

Precisely this is what you will learn in the 2 day training "Work smarter not harder" in Johannesburg South Africa. 

Make your life and business a lot happier and sign up.

Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happy mental states may also reflect judgements by a person about their overall well-being.
