Tips On Time Management
by Valerie Sokolosky - Sep, 2012
Try to use waiting time (Dr’s office, business appointments) to knock out paperwork. Is everything on your list for today a priority? If not, put it on the list of “nice-to-do’s.” Maintain a list of most important things to do. Those you don’t want to do? “Eat the Frog.” Examine your time-wasting habits (e.g., checking email/texts too often). Eliminate them. Minimize — as gently as you can — those people, tasks who...

How to find a job over 50?
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012
I am over 50, and just got laid off after working in the same place for 15 years. How should I approach prospective employers and deal with the age issue?

It's Your Time: Executive Time Management
by Suzanne Bates - Sep, 2012
