OpenSesame Description

In this FranklinCovey course, you'll learn to eliminate the unimportant distractions in your life to focus on the important tasks and use your time effectively. It's up to you to decide whether to spend time on important things or merely on the "fires". This course will show you how to distinguish between important things and urgent things in order to prioritize effectively and invest your time where it really counts.

This course will introduce a quadrant system to help learners diagnose the priority level of key tasks and use the quadrant system to address key questions, such as: 

  • What specific activities in each quadrant are you engaging in?
  • How much time are you currently spending in each quadrant?
  • Are you spending too much time on unimportant things?
  • How can you plan your work better to stop wasting time?
