If you're not 5 minutes early, you're 10 minutes late. Military adage

Everyone is late now and then. Cars break down. Traffic jams occur. Family emergencies crop up. Unexpected things happen at inconvenient times. Try as you might, unforeseen glitches can and do occur. And when they do, they can cause you to be late.

There is not a lot you can do about it but apologize - and hope people understand. Then vow to get better.

There is one way - and only one way - to avoid being late. And that is to be early.

"Punctuality is the stern virtue of men of business, and the graceful courtesy of princes." Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Some people are late for just about everything they do. Not because of traffic, not due to family matters. These people are late because they are, well... late. They are late for meetings. They are late for work. They are late for class. And they don't seem to care. They just bebop in whenever they get there.

These individuals never show up on time. They fiddle around instead of finishing the project. They dawdle when they should be getting ready to leave. They hit the snooze button when they need to be getting up. As a result, they leave the house at the last minute. They always cut it way too close. They are habitually late.

And they leave the rest of us cooling our heels.

Being late on a regular basis is not normal. It is not fashionable. It is not cool. EVER! Chronic lateness shows a complete disregard for others. It is thoughtless. It is rude. It is selfish and inconsiderate. And it sure isn't acceptable to the majority of people.

"Better be three hours too soon, than one minute too late." William Shakespeare

If you have ever waited for someone (who hasn't?), you know five minutes spent waiting can feel like an eternity. When you are kept waiting, you get antsy. You get anxious. And if you have to wait too long, you get angry.

You hate waiting for someone else. So how do you suppose the other person when he is kept waiting on you? Maybe the person had farther to travel. Maybe that individual had to juggle his schedule to make things work. But he got there - and got there on time. And so should you.

Being late is a destructive habit. It's a bad habit that hurts relationships; a rotten habit that impairs work performance. It's an inexcusable habit that speaks volumes about you and how you treat others.

if you have a 'late' problem, you need to fix it. And fix it now.

"Set aside a just in case cushion for those 'just in case' moments in life." Greg Hickman

If you possess a punctuality problem, you need to change your habits, tweak your routines, and develop a definitive sense of urgency. Simply put, you need to turn lateness into promptness.

If you are going somewhere, LEAVE EARLY. If you are working against a deadline, PLAN AHEAD. If you fail to provide yourself a 'just in case' cushion and something goes wrong, your goose is cooked.

Do not wait until the last minute.
Stop cutting it close.
Give yourself more than enough time to get the job done.

Instead of being late, be early. Be early for work. Be early for class. Be on time every time. Your life will become a lot less stressful. You will get a lot more done. And make a lot more friends along the way.

Power Pointer: Respect other people's time and you will earn their respect.
