Self-Management Skills

Self-management, which is also referred to as ‘self-control’, is the ability to control one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviour effectively in different situations. This includes motivating oneself, and setting and working towards personal and academic goals. Students with strong self-management skills are better in doing certain things well, such as coming to class on time, paying attention, obeying teachers, parents and elders, working with discipline, etc. This allows you to excel at school and outside school as well. It helps you do better in future studies or work. Employers strongly prefer people with good self-management skills.
