It is critically important to use sensible time management skills to anything you do, in particular in business, so you can use every single day the best you can and savor life. It got me thinking a lot that I made some phone calls to people who are important to me just to say I love you or sorry for something, and I found myself being super patient with my children because each and every time I looked at them, I recognized that they are growing up so rapidly and that every breath matters.
