Discipline and self-control are important for effective time management. This could mean not allowing distractions to distract you, such as ignoring emails or opening non-work-related tabs to your computer during working hours, or simply saying no to your friends when you must spend extra time in the library prior to an exam. It could also mean taking frequent breaks to avoid becoming lost in your work or losing motivation.
