He was known for his ability to manage his time properly

5 points that I liked in his talk:

- How he dedicated himself to prepare for the lecture and come up with useful advice for others to be more successful in their lives
- How he proved that time can be more valuable than the money earned
- The fact that he didn't neglect his physical state even in his last days
- He appreciated his the time he spent with others(family and friends)
