A couple of months ago, Marge Loch-Wouters suggested that she and I propose a Conversation Starter for ALA Annual 2016 on being intentional about managing our professional and personal time by saying “no” to opportunities.
Guess what, I said yes!
(Irony Meter Levels: Quite High)
We’re pretty excited about sharing the strategies we’ve gathered through trial and error (lots of trial, lots of error) to manage our workloads, both at work in our library departments as well as our extracurricular professional obligations outside of our day jobs.
If this sounds like it would be of value to you, and if you’re an ALA member, please hop over to ALA Connect and vote for our session! You can find our program proposal here: You Say Yes, I Say No: Achieving ALL. THE. THINGS.
While you’re there, take a look at all the other proposals too. We have some pretty smart colleagues with great things to say!
