There’s nothing wrong to be thinking that , the answer to that is Good Time Management. The highest achievers in the world are usually the ones who are the best at utilising their time and all of us are equally capable of maintaining the balance of time and to make the most of our day.

Time management encourages the process of working smarter and not harder. It is the process of getting more work done in less time and under high pressures. Time management encourages organising and planning how to divide your time between different activities.

Therefore, one needs to start practicing the methods without procrastinating. Like many others even in Time Management “Practice makes man a Perfect” .
