Time management is a bit of an ambiguous term. It can mean “task management” or “life management”. But why is time management important? There are several reasons, along with a few benefits and advantages too. This article is going to go over a few reasons behind the importance of time management.

Time isn’t forever. Your time is precious, and any given day cannot be returned to you. Therefore time management is really vital. It’s the only way to make the most out of the time that you have, we all get the same 24 hours a day.

What you do, really indicates who you are. Who we are as people is basically the sum of all the things we do. If we are kind, we might get called a kind person for example. By managing your time well you can be the person you want to be.

Be happy. Time management means that you have less anxiety and stress in your life. You can engage in things that you enjoy more often. You wont be weighed down by a long to-so list as you have already done everything on it!

Time management and daily planning help leas to a balanced life. It allows you to stay in control. Like more quality time with your kids, or time to engage in recreation, or to learn karate. Good time management equals enjoyable balanced life.

If you work 40 hours per week this means you took control back over 20 hours.
