Listening to Lessons in Life and Business for the second time yesterday, I discovered that I have taken something integral from filling weekly deliverables worksheet. I now have a book where I write everything I plan to do. This is the most effective time management principle I have implemented.

In addition to time management, I have developed proficiency in website development. My second website should go live before next week.

Furthermore, I’m now more responsible. My future keeps pulling at me to prepare for it and this is making me work on myself and my skills.

I think this program is the best thing to have happened to me this year.

Giving to the society is something, but investing in minds that can grow the nation is another.
