    Self-management is the activity through which people incorporate programs in their lives that enable them to positively improve their behaviors. People who can use self-management to improve their behaviors manage to acquire more control and require less support from others. An example of behavior that might require the incorporation of a self-program to improve it is the behavior of poor time management. This behavior can be assessed mostly by observation but can also be recorded. The behavior of poor time management can be determined when an individual is observed to be late for many things in most of the times. Within an organization for example, when the person is always arriving late for work, or discovered to spend a lot of time while carrying out some of the roles and then forced to complete the rest of the roles hurriedly, the individual can be said to have the problem of time management (Rothstein, & Burke, 2010).

    The behavior can be measured by assessing the duration by which he or she is late on all occasions. If for example the individual is expected to arrive at work at eight o’clock in the morning, measuring the behavior would involve assessing how many minutes later the individual arrives after eight o’clock for a certain number of days. Time calculation and assessments are therefore the methods that will be used to obtain data that can help measure this behavior.
