Exploring Self-Excellence through Proper Time Management: Respect the time, Be Punctual(Part 3)
Respect Your time and Others' Time
Those whom explore themselves will respect his own time and the time of others. He will be punctual because he knows that the punctuality will affect not only himself but also to others. Those who are not punctual in fact do not respect themselves and others. For example, in a meeting, the member presence of ten people waiting for another member for ten minutes before the start of the meeting which should have been started. The man whom came late had stolen ten minutes of each of the members present and the amount of time loss is 100 minutes! There is truth with this multiplication because each person has some plan and work rules which will be interrupted because of a delay.
Those whom explore themselves will not allow anyone else associated to wait in time. If there is an appointment at a specific time and people which should come earlier coming late because he had reason there is other work to be done, then what's the point of dating? Dating is an agreement to be on at the set time. If truly we are dealing with things that are very important and cannot be directly avoided, may be accepted by others but if this thing often happens, people will lose confidence in ourselves. The person who is always late or do not respect the lives of other people is called 'thief of time'. People whom explore themselves will always be punctual to the assigned or designated time.
Always Be On Time, Not Late Not Even Earlier
When talking about the future, there are some behaviours that could be considered self-limiting and should be avoided. If someone dignitary attended the ceremony late, he will be 'deprecated' quietly by the audience because not many people are willing to wait for others. If those VIPs came too early, this will also cause problems for the organizers who may not be ready. It should be understood that the organizers have various tasks to be done and not fair if someone designated to wait dignitary fearing lest he will appear much earlier than the time of the invitation. All of this is actually our sensitivity to time. There are also public figures whom explore themselves and sensitive to the time of the invitation accepted. Some public figures known for such self-explore attitude. They are said to be on at the time of the invitation. Even if they come early, they will be present in the vicinity until the time is right to attend the ceremony. It is a self-exploring attitude that should be emulated by anyone. Such a person is not only caring to own self but also sensitive to the needs and desires of others. Off timing attitude also bring problems. If we should start a task at a specified time, but late for one day, then the next tasks will also be delayed by one day unless the work was left half-way to start the other works.
Set Short And Long Term Goals
Those whom explore themselves will determine what they want to accomplish. They will determine the short-term and long term goals. The long term goal is what we can achieve in one year, two years and beyond. Short-term goals are centred on a few days, weeks and months. Having set the goals to be achieved, give priority to the goals. There are activities that take a lot of time but do not bring much benefit. Such activities should be identified so as not to interfere with the achievement of a more important goal.
Start The Goal, Have It Completed
After determining what is to be achieved, the focus must be given immediately to the question of how to achieve this objective. The best method is to start the planned activities as soon as possible. 'The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step'. Once an activity is started, the next thing is to make sure the activity is completed. As we mentioned before, the slightest delay will produce a chain effect that will result in more protracted delays.
