TIME MANAGEMENT

there is time in the day?


Well, no​w is the right moment to start prioritizing your time…..


➢ Start by making a list of all the things you need to take care of; 

everything that comes to your mind.


➢ Next, create groups and begin to combine things that are 

common or have similar points.


➢ In each group, list items based on importance.

groups in order of importance/priority.

decision-making skills:

*Don’t hesitate to learn more and improve your abilities.
*This will help to build your confidence.

Overcome self-doubt

*Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

-Everyone does

You can do this!

who strengthens me."
