What is ?African Punctuality?? It is more than you think. Read more about it in this book. Lord Chesterfield, a British Statesman (1694-1773), says, ?Know the true value of time, snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well. I recommend you to take care of the minutes, for the hours will take care of themselves.?
