Let me tell you a little story about time! —•
There's plenty of it if you mange it well. And this I learned from my mom. My mom worked in the bank, and she held a managerial post in the most demanding department. Month end was the worst time and the thing about month end (what they don't tell you) is that it actually happens the entire month and for the entire year, it's just concentrated in the last week of the month. Mom was also a student, ran a household, raised 4 children, taught at Sunday school, ran a small sales operation (entrepreneurial), cared for 4 siblings (my uncles and aunts) and 2 cousins, volunteered in charitable courses and she was never ever late, EVER. —•
When mom said "get ready, I'm leaving at 13:57 with or without you!" She meant it. That car would drive out at the exact minute, with or without a sniffling child. #valuablelesson in hindsight😍
Until today I wake up at the crack of dawn (school or no school, job or no job, lazy day or not), I don't subscribe to the so called 'African time' cos there's no such a thing, but primarily because I operate on MOM's time. —•
She still makes time for everything and everyone. Her time management skills seem to slow time down, but the truth is she MAKES TIME and sticks to it.
I am my mother's child. Thanks mom😘
