Taking Control

14th July, 2013

Many of you will know that I rate Oliver Burkeman who writes the "This Column Will Change Your Life" in the Guardian on Saturdays. I was particularly taken with his article "Embrace the Schedule" published on 15 June. In it, he says he has finally succumbed to the use of scheduling to manage his life, with some great results. It struck a chord with me as many of my coaching clients struggle with fitting everything in and feel buffeted by the incessant demands of their boss, the job, colleagues, family, friends, etc etc.
