Do you ever wonder what it takes to become successful in this life? What's the difference between the people who say they want to accomplish something and those who actually get it done? Most people don't know the answer to this question.
Dr Boyce Watkins, one of the most noted scholars in the world, has put together this course as a template for those who are serious about achieving their objectives in life. He lays out strategies and models for time management, goal-setting, dealing with setbacks and other tools necessary to climb to the top of any mountain that lies in front of you.
Dr Boyce Watkins was the only African American in the world to earn a PhD in Finance during the year 2002. He was also the Wall Street Journal Outstanding graduating senior at The University of Kentucky and has taught at the college level since he was 22 years old. He's gained international respect by writing thousands of articles and appearing in national media hundreds of times, including CNN, ESPN, NBC and many other networks.
Time management and goal-setting has always been of great interest to Dr Watkins. As a young father in college, Watkins was forced to work a full-time job while also earning a nearly perfect GPA in college. This is when he became interested in how many hours there are in a week and how to best use that time to achieve personal and professional objectives.
This course allows Dr Watkins to work with you to give you insights into how to become your best self. You won't regret letting this scholar become your mentor.
I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
