Punctuality is not one of my strong suits. I am trying to be a bit better with this one and try to get to places I need to earlier than I need to. Definitely a work in progress. Do you have any tips or tricks for being more punctual?
When you have a 5:00 appointment, internalize it as a 4:30 appointment in all you do to get ready. Maybe that would give you the room to be late for that 4:30 appointment, but in reality, you would be on time. I am the opposite of you, I always have to leave extra early and be there with plenty of time to spare. I try to plan for traffic and anything else that might put a bump in my plans! Probably the most effective way to learn to be prompt is having kids, it takes double the time to prepare, and you learn quickly that everything takes longer than you think. :)ReplyDelete
