Is punctuality important to you?

Do you usually succeed at being punctual?

Studies show that people who are generally punctual are more successful. I think consistency is the key. Being on time “some of the time” doesn’t make the impression that you are serious, trust-worthy or committed. As Dan Kennedy, author of No B.S. Time
Management for Entrepreneurs
, “Someone who cannot keep appointments on time, cannot keep scheduled commitments and cannot stick to a schedule should not be trusted.”

If you are often late for work, what does that say about you to others? I bet they question you committment. If you make people wait, because of your lateness, how does that make them feel?

How can you change your mind-set and start keeping appointments by arriving on time?  Here are five suggestions:

  1. Commit to arriving on time.
  2. Plan to be early.
  3. Write it on your planner.
  4. Allow for traffic.
  5. Schedule more time than you think.

You can develop the punctuality habit with effort and practice.
