Until you realise that the difference between successful and unsuccessful people lies in time and information management, you will never reach your full potential in life.

Ask yourself how many hours in a day, days in week, weeks in a month and months in a year you put into developing yourself and learning new things.

Social media, unproductive meetings, gathering, excessive social activities, friends and family, are major factors holding a lot of us back, and unfortunately, most of us are ignorant or unconscious of this.
