Cultivate good friendships and add true richness to life. To have friends, prove yourself friendly. Don’t expect them to contact you if you never make any effort to contact them. Friendship takes work, but the work is worth it.
Time with friends refreshes and renews. Arguably it lets you tackle your work with greater enthusiasm and focus. And during times of crisis, friends are often the first line of defense against spiraling into inactivity and negativity.
To manage your time well, include friends. Don’t discount these vital social relationships. While you may not see how they directly impact productivity, know that they do. People with good friends tend to get more done with greater fulfillment and effectiveness.
