I’ve taken all of the best time-management systems and tips on the market, and have synthesized them all into the Green Time Management System for College Coaches.
I don’t know about you coach, but I have tried a lot of different planners and time management techniques over the years. The biggest issue I have found is that there are no coaching specific planners out there. Nothing where I could keep track of all I needed to do: my recruiting and practice plans, to-do lists, phone calls, recruiting opportunities, meeting plans, and official visits—all in one place.
Finally, I stopped looking and decided to create my own calendar.
The calendar system that I have created and am about to share with you has evolved over my 14-year coaching career. I’ve created a goal-based, time-management system that has allowed me to be more effective with all of my recruiting tasks, my team, and my administrative responsibilities. Because I am so much more efficient in the office since putting these techniques into practice, I now have more quality time and energy to go home and be a wife and mother.
