Are you always running late? If not, I'll bet you know someone who is. Either way, check out Lifehack.org's "Are you late?", which outlines the negative aspects associated with tardiness, the positive aspects of being punctual, and ways to train yourself in the art of the latter. For example:
- Mentally reprogram yourself to arrive 5 minutes early to every meeting. Put them on your calendar for 10 minutes before start time. For example, a 2 p.m. meeting is put as 1:50 p.m. on your calendar.
- Practice exit strategies so you leave previous commitments with enough time to get to the next one.
- DO NOT set your watch or clocks 5 or 10 minutes ahead. The rest of the world runs on real time so you need to synchronize with actual time.
