“We have a strange concept of time in our culture, as if it is something to be managed. Time is the current we wade in, whether we move with it or against it. There is no “time management” – there is only self-management. The real heart of the matter is how we manage our goals, our values, our priorities and the choices we make within them.” – Denise Bissonnette



When our best efforts are not bringing us the results we want, in the time that we want them, how do we keep on keepin’ on? This is a universal question lying at the heart of any worthwhile goal, whether imposed by the demands of the job, dictated by the needs of the family, or inspired by our own heart’s desire. When the going gets tough, how do we fight off feelings of lethargy and sluggishness and bring, instead, fresh energy and renewed commitment? How, with so much and so many vying for our attention, do we stay focused on what is important? In the midst of those who would urge us to give up, surrender the cause, or to cease tilting at windmills, how do we remain steadfast in our own sense of purpose? And when our own cynicism and fear comes knocking, how do we refuse it entry, enlisting the company of optimism and hope instead? In this powerful series, Denise offers practical tips and techniques for “Staying the Course” with greater resolve, resilience and self-renewal.
