Time management is the difference between becoming a professional artist or creating art for a hobby. In this article, I answer the question, “Why is time management important?”
Why is Time Management Important?
You have decided that you want to sell your art. It is a very exciting time for you. You have been working hard on building up your confidence and enhancing your artistic skills. There is no better time than now to start selling your art. When you land your first sale, you will be doing the happy dance. But what happens after the excitement wears off from your first sale?
You will need to be prepared for future sales. Unless you are looking for a couple of sales here and there, you will need start working on more art and start promoting the work that you already have completed. You cannot sell what you do not have, and people will not get to know you if you do not put yourself out there. Creating enough art, marketing, promoting and running an art business to generate a decent income will take a lot of planning, effort and time.
Before an artist starts selling their art, life is more relaxed. They have all the time in the world to finish a project. They do not need to spend any time on marketing, communicating with potential buyers, shipping products, and keeping up with the accounting. They just create art whenever they feel creative.
The difference between a successful artist and someone who is not successful is how they manage their time. Successful people are productive with their time and know how to accomplish every task that needs to get done for the job.
Managing your time effectively will allow you to develop your art business and impact your personal life. The balance between work and personal life has to be equal. Failing to manage your time in one area will have an effect on the other.

Conclusion: I hope that this answered the question, “Why is time management important?” Work on this skill and you will be able to reach your goals.
