The consequences of something are the results or effects of it. The consequence of having good time management is that everything that is important to you gets done. The consequence of poor time management is that you have to work overtime and still don’t manage to finish everything you need to.

Negative consequences can be good motivation to avoid procrastination. My son is learning cello at school, and his teacher says he is good at it, and would be much better if he practiced more. Unfortunately, he never wants to practice. So, I told him that the consequence of not practicing would be that he wouldn’t improve. He didn’t care. Then I told him that his teacher would be disappointed with him. That worked! He now practices almost every day!

A good example of how important it is to find the right consequences to motivate you!
