Costin recently enlightened and entertained my whole sales team in demystifying what personal productivity really means and how we can really be in control each day through simple methods and constant reflection on how we do things. He really inspired us to feel more confident and optimistic about creating a better work/life balance and becoming more successful. Thank you Costin, it was an enjoyable and very stimulating session for the team!

First of all, you must know what you want to do with your life and why. This thing is essential. Then, you must take a sheet of paper and write all your actions for today. Which is the task that might lead you to your goal? You should stay focused at least 80% of the time on that task. Although, I knew all these things before, Costin helped me be more aware. Only then, I applied what I knew and I increased my productivity. Thanks, Costin.
I truly believe in what I noticed a long time ago, you can spot passionate people in a second. This is what I felt when Costin’s workshop started. This was rather an experience, than a training. Why? Because, for sure there is somewhere a dictionary where the word productivity, is somehow, equal with Costin.

The experience was that the workshop was on things that where tested & analyzed by the trainer, not by some scientists in another country with limited information about the current context. I really liked that the information was personal, real, and all participants related to them. As I said, you can spot easily a passionate man, and Costin is the person that really believes in what he is doing, improves himself, sees the real benefits on all aspects of his life and he has greater results. Congratulation!
