About the Author

Harold Taylor Time Consultants was incorporated in 1981 as an organization devoted to helping others manage their time and their lives through time management training, publications and products. Prior to that time it operated as a division of Harold Taylor Enterprises Ltd., an association management company that Harold Taylor founded in 1967. It underwent a further organizational change in 1998 and emerged as Harold Taylor Time Consultants Ltd.
