- If you have an important engagement, wedding or other function to attend; don’t waste so much time over the minor things which will cause you to be late.

Simply say, “Sorry, I can’t today.”
It is very important to use some time management tips to
keep on top of the many things that you need to
accomplish. It is a basic and important component in how we conduct our business; our lives, and even our free time. It should not be wasted nor squandered; but used for preparing our daily routines; our work habits; and our family responsibilities.
