Self-management is our ability to manage our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions in a conscious and productive way.
Someone with strong self-management skills knows what to do and how to act in different situations. For instance, they know how to control their anger when the umpire unfairly calls their child out at a little league game. They know how to avoid distractions while working from home, so they can maintain focus and stay productive. They know what they need to do to achieve their fitness goals — and they follow through.
Self-management means you understand your personal responsibility in different aspects of your life, and you do what you need to fulfill that responsibility.
