Better Communication, Better Father, Better Leader

“I was unsure how much I would learn from the 5 Choices. Quickly, I found out that I would take away a great deal of information and the confidence to make some of those prioritizing decisions. Like magic I was able to make my life a happier place. I think most people could benefit from this the 5 Choices program! Thanks!!”

Beyond Impactful

The instructor did an incredible job of explaining the material in detail.  The material was Off-The-Hood GREAT.  I have implemented a lot of what the instructor taught us and it has already made an impact on my business.  I have been searching to find a way to keep all my stuff in one spot and not use the paper product.  I feel I know have a fantastic foundation to build upon and I am utilizing Outlook 1000% more effectively than I had in the past.  The 5 Choices program including Core4, the Quadrants, the 30 Minute Week Review and the 10 Minute Daily review, the review of the Notes section with the Goals I’m setting, etc., have all been beyond impactful. So, thanks for providing a great program and pushing this material onto the students in a steady pace, well thought out format.

Things That Matter

“The 5 Choices has been a great way to develop a steady habit of planning every day and every week for success. Everything from defining my roles to defining my purpose statements for those roles to ruling my technology has been extremely helpful in making sure I am only doing things that matter every hour of the day…and keep myself fired up at the same time.”

Ending The Constant Feeling Of Burnout

“Ninety-nine percent of the material presented in the 5 Choices work session is relevant to the struggles I face daily. And the solutions to those issues are simple, easy to use, and provide value and purpose back into my life! Finally I can apply structure in a job which has no structure and I can stop reacting emotionally and look forward to ending the constant feeling of burnout.”

Best Processes Explained

“I did not feel confident in my time management skills as a new hire. The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity work session went through everything that I had doubts in and explained the best process to deal with them. Good time management ideas, like weekly/daily planning and good note taking ideas. Very up-to-date with technology, using technology to increase productivity with Microsoft Outlook and iPhone Apps.”

More Meaningful Projects Accomplished With Less Stress

“With the 5 Choices program, I have been able to have all my projects organized and ask what is more important.  My coworkers either understand why the other projects aren’t complete yet, or they tend to take on some of the unfinished projects on themselves.  I love the teamwork!  Now that my projects are in a visible format, it is much easier to delegate.”

Great Start To 2014

The 5 Choices was an excellent course! I learned new techniques to better manage my big rocks rather than sorting gravel. I have been effective in planning my days and even have “me time” which I am learning is not “wasted time”. The technology tools I learned with Outlook have also been a tremendous help. I was able to reduce the emails in my inbox from 200+ to less than 20! I no longer feel that I am tethered to my email.

Moving Right Along

“This was one of the best classes I have ever taken!  I have discussed the Q2 approach with my manager and various team members, and I am working on using my technology better for my personal life.  Now defining my roles, this is really helping me out!  I plan to somehow work the 5 Choices into a conversation with my teens (sophomore in college and a senior in high school) during spring break!”
