Importance of Punctuality in Professional Life:
A doctor's lateness means the loss of a life and a lawyer's lateness might mean the ruin of his client. To a businessman punctuality is equally important.

A late Man Suffers:
A late man is an enemy to himself. He is a nuisance to everyone. He is disliked by all. He suffers for that. If he gives word to his friend and cannot keep it he may lose his friends. A late man cannot even say his prayers in time. Not only that but he cannot perform any of his work on time. As a result he suffers greatly to maintain proper time management. He never does well in the exams and finds it very much difficult to even pass the exam. He wakes late in the morning and goes to the bed late. He has no proper timing of breakfast, lunch and dinner. He cannot perform his daily works properly. As a result he does not get any scope of performing any extracurricular activities and he struggles throughout his life. The root of this suffering is simply one- not being punctual. So if anyone wants to get out of this ever struggling phase from his life there is only one way-be punctual.
