Oakwood Hot Topics Koffee Talk

What is being left behind?

Dwight D Eisenhower said that “What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.” In this 45-minute session, we will use the first 15 – 20 minutes to talk about how hurry is our number one thief. The next 25 minutes we will open the floor up for your ideas and feedback. Finally, we will tie the session up with a story of one person’s unexpected victory, that will leave you asking what am I leaving behind?
