      Rachelle's Answer

      "I manage my time by exercising the idea of 'time-blocking.' This approach means that I won't incessantly check my email; instead, I will allow myself to return emails in 30-minute time blocks, four times per day. Setting calendar alerts and personal deadlines for myself has also helped a lot."

      Ronda's Answer

      "I manage my priorities by creating a list of things that I need to accomplish. This helps me stay on task and never miss a deadline."

      Ronda's Answer

      "As someone who has worked in HR for many years, I have a good understanding of the ebbs and flows. One day might be slower, and the next might be full of tasks that require my attention. For me, I manage my priorities based on the deadline and importance, and this allows for everything to be accomplished in a timely manner."
