Controlling your actions, thoughts and feelings to meet your goals.

Why does self-control matter?

People with self-control remain in charge of what they think, their actions and the feelings they experience. It is about being disciplined in order to meet the goals you have set for yourself.


What does self-control look like?

Students with self-control might:

  • meet deadlines before time;
  • come organised to class;
  • listen to others;
  • regulate their emotions;
  • resist procrastination.

Teachers with self-control might:

  • role model the behaviours that are expected of students;
  • commit to a schedule for marking assessments;
  • be consistent by regulating their emotions;
  • follow through on their learning plans in a structured way.
