The only thing, which can’t be changed by man, is time. One cannot get back time lost or gone Nothing can be substituted for time. Time management is actually self management. The skills that people need to manage others are the same skills that are required to manage themselves.

The population for the present study consists of 180 students and the sample consists of 63 students [35 male and 28 female] taken from Peniel Higher Secondary School, Natham, Dindigul District.
