"Time is of the essence" is a phrase used to emphasize that the actions described need to be completed in a reasonable amount of time.
This phrase requires a party to act within the time set forth in the document. Often if the party fails to act within the time prescribed, the other party has a recourse such as a fine per day of non-action or even voiding the contract.
If no time is prescribed or the time set forth is woefully inadequate, then the standard for a party to act is within a reasonable amount of time. This may seem like a vague term but it is surprising how often 100 people polled agree on what a reasonable time would be. The problem here arises when the parties can't agree on what is a reasonable time and the disagreement ends up with a judge deciding the matter.
