Time is inarguably and incontrovertibly the greatest asset of humanity. It was giving to all equally. We all have twenty four (24) hours of time in day. What you do with your twenty four hours of time will as much determine where your life is heading to, and how you will live your life here on earth. Time is a crucial factor to climbing the ladder of success.

Time wasted cannot be bought back. In managing time, planning is very needful. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Everyday of your life should be well planned in such a way that it can be accounted for. Most people live their everyday life without planning.
Severely I’ve come across youths who are financially, morally and academically stagnated. It seems as if they are not moving forward or backward.

Many have been destroyed by doing a particular thing at the wrong time. If perhaps, you find yourself in a learning environment, then know that it is time to study and not for jamboree or any unresourceful and unproductive activities. We should learn to value each passage of time. Time shouldn’t be spent rather it should be used.
