Time Management Tips Quick Reference Cards


Time Management Tips Quick Reference Cards is a deck of 25 time management tips on flash cards

Quick Reference Cards are an easy-to-use learning tool to help you build you or your team’s time management skills. The cards summarize 25 of Peter “the Time Man” Turla’s best high-leverage time management strategies. Use a different card every day and practice the time management strategy for that day. By using one card a day, you’re not overwhelmed and it’s easy to focus.

Each of the 25 cards in the Quick Reference Cards deck has a brief time-management lesson and provides specific action steps to improve your time management.

If you work with others and you’d like them to improve their time management, here’s a suggestion on how to go about it. Deal 3 or 4 cards to each team member and let each person review his or her cards and select one idea from the card that they like the best. Each person takes a turn in sharing the idea and what they like about it. They then commit to practicing that idea until the next team meeting and giving a brief report on how well it worked for them.


















The cards make self-improvement easy. They are a fun, easy way to stay motivated and inspired to practice powerful time management strategies. Simply place the whole deck into the convenient plastic case included with the deck, change the face card each day, and follow the lessons presented on the card.
