Stress is a common occurrence of our daily routine. To be at one's best under these conditions requires self-management skills, learning to deal with challenges from the eagle within. Every human being is born not only with an ideal self within, your eagle, but also a deficient, defensive self called your duck. Your eagle is you at your best. The eagle never lacks courage, and so always encourages others. The duck within puts forth the minimum effort required to keep his/her job.

TIME MANAGEMENT: A Personal Choice 
Everybody is always trying to save us time. The fact is that you can't save time. Wouldn't it be great if we had the ability to put time in a bank and at the end of the week, we would have a few hours left? The reality is that we only get 24 hours a day. Time management is choosing how we will use that 24 hours to our best benefit.
