The Goal Kicker – March 2009 Hot Topics

Hi! Welcome to the mid-month mini issue of “The Goal Kicker: Hot Topics”.

We’ve been getting lots of requests for more information on Time Management, so we thought we’d make “Time Management” the hot topic for this month. You may recall we covered time management in our August 2008 edition of Hot Topics, but we’ve found some more products and tools (including FREE ones) since then - so here they are!

Of course, the website is dedicated to helping you achieve success – including a range of skills like time management you need to help you along the way - so I also recommend that you read through the pages on ”Life Skills” and check out the Life Tools available on the website too!

Now, here are some tools and websites that you’ll find helpful (and mostly FREE):

  • Mind Tools - this site has lots of useful information (a lot of it is FREE) on personal management skills including time management, problem solving, communication skills, etc.
  • Time Thoughts - offers practical goal setting, time and stress management advice, including the FREE Productivity Start-Up Kit.
  • Affirmware - FREE affirmations course to get your positive affirmations for success working for YOU. Write yourself some affirmations to beat procrastination!!
  • Goal reminder service - Don’t waste time remembering your goals, this FREE service allows you to register 3 goals and then you will receive monthly reminders of these goals so you can monitor your progress or just be triggered to do something to achieve them.

There are also six FREE e-books in the “Manage My Time Now” series, by Rigdha Acharya – just click here.

Of course, if you’re looking for a career success ‘system’ with a bit more grunt, then the following programs and services are the pick of the bunch (and are really quite affordable, when you think that this is your career we’re talking about!):

  • ”Make Time for Success” - market-leading downloadable self-study time management and personal effectiveness system from MindTools.
