Time management is important for students and professionals alike. When people are able to manage their time, they are more likely to be successful in school or at work. When students are learning time management they are developing skills like decision-making, self-control, attention span, organization and prioritizing tasks. Professionals use these skills on a daily basis to manage their workloads more effectively. A lack of time management can lead to stress or even burnout which could result in the inability to work efficiently or successfully complete any task at all.
