Time Management Quotes and Sayings

Abhijit Naik Aug 28, 2020
They say, time is money. We believe they are right. Here are some motivational time management quotes, which will help you realize its importance in your day-to-day life.
Time management is of utmost importance if you are to achieve excellence in your personal and professional life. Time is not a resource that can be saved for future use and hence, one has to make the most of it ... before it flies. The 'present' moment becomes 'history' the very next moment. It's a moment lost, which cannot be retrieved.
People who keep complaining about not having time, are the ones who are bad at time management. While a wise man knows the importance of time and thrives to make the most of every moment he gets, a fool is too lazy to do so; instead, he chooses to crib about losing valuable time.
