Reason #1: Time is limited Once you start to take control of your time, you improve your ability to focus. With increased focus comes enhanced efficiency and you will soon start to complete tasks more quickly. Reason #2: You can accomplish more with less effort A benefit of good time management skills is the ability to make better decisions. When you begin to master the ability to effectively manage time, you also improve your ability to make important decisions. Reason #3: Improved decision-making ability When you can accomplish more in your workday and make better decisions than your fellow co-workers, business leaders will take note. This could lead to advanement opportunities within your job. Reason #4: Become more successful in your career When you work more efficiently, you have more time to take advantage of learning opportunities within the workplace. Reason #5: Learning opportunities are everywhere When you don't have any control over your time, you end up feeling rushed and overwhelmed. Once you learn how to manage your time, you no longer are subject to the stress. Reason #6: Reduce stress Everyone needs free time and having good time managment skills allows you find the time to do fun and relaxing things. Reason #7: Free time is necessary When you practice good time management, you don't have room for procrastination. The better you get at this, the more self-discipline you learn.

Reason #8: Self-discipline is valuable How to not Manage time Well Top 5 reasons why Time management is hard The reason people procrastinate is simple. You are given tasks you did not decide to do, so your brain decides to push it off until you can't anymore. #1 Procrastination It is hard to do things you do not want to do The worst thing you could do when trying to work on a project or paper is working on it when you have not had enough sleep. No sleep and not a good diet can make you less productive #2 Not having enough energy If you say yes to a lot of tasks or are in to many clubs it might be worth it to cut down in those areas. Do not take on more responsibilities than you can handle. Do not be afraid to say no to a co-worker if they need your help at work finish what you need to do first to get your stuff done. Taking to many responsibilities on at once #3 Feeling Overwhelmed This is a dangerous habit to get in if you don't prioritze then you might get distracted by scrolling on your phone and 30 minutes being wasted on your phone can really hurt your productivity. Not prioritzing your time #4 Being Easily Distracted by less important things If you do not know what your goals are in school, career, or life in general it is hard to accomplish what you have to get done.
