Think about the last time you had a lot of things to get done in one day.

  • How many of those things did you actually get done?
  • How many of those things did you schedule for the next day?

Much time is wasted when goals are not considered or prioritised. People need to manage time well so that personal goals can be met and positive habits developed. In this way, when personal goals are aligned with personal values and national values and are being achieved, our country will be better able to meet national goals.
