"I have ALWAYS had the goal of overcoming my time-management problems, since they have been a burden on me throughout my entire life. Imagine feeling as if you were trapped underwater, with a chain around your ankle connected to a heavy weight. Your whole life, you've been struggling to break the chain and swim to the surface so that you can breathe. Finally, you gather enough strength to break off the chain and break the surface of the water, filling your lungs with oxygen. That feeling of relief, as if your life was just saved, is how I feel now after my experience with my success coach."
