The Importance of Punctuality
Relationships are poorly developed without punctuality
Some people certainly know how to let others wait, and wait when not punctual. They turn up with some lame excuse for being late.
Why are you never on time for work, or a meeting, a doctor's appointment, or a simple date?
Have you been late but with a good reason?
Have you been late to meet a friend one one occasion, or does this always happens to you?
Do you think punctuality is important?
I am on time, unless in an emergency, only would I be late.
You invite friends over for dinner and you eat at seven o' clock.
Guests arrive half an hour later.
Would you start the process or wait on them?
It happened to me many times.
We invited a friend to our place for a barbecue.
He would arrive half an hour later the excuse as follows:
''I had too much to cope with at home.''
The thing is, he knew in advance about coming to us, but he still can't make that time, he can never be on time, and thinks nothing of his rudeness.
I stopped inviting people who don't respect their time of the invitation. It is often about them.
· Punctuality is very important.
If you are going to be late for some reason at least telephone the other person. Let them know something came up.
The constant behavior can be frustrating but then again every individual is different.
They think and do things their way and won't always be on time.
· Be prompt a habit you have to stick to.
It is not only about meeting with friends, what about paying debts on time?
When getting up in the morning, but this is not often the case.
Don't let others wait they have somewhere to be at, and waiting on you will make them late for their appointments or chores.
· Do you only think of yourself and time and of not others when getting to some place on time?
Punctuality varies from culture to culture also in most parts of Europe.
People are laid back and don't make everything a priority that includes punctuality.
Lots are not practiced so keeping up to such standard is rare.
Be punctual show strengths in your character.
You choose to meet someone at a specific time, that means you have promised you would be there on time.
If you don't arrive on time your promise made is now broken promise.
Be the man of your word.
If you show punctuality it shows you can be depended on, and you are reliable.
An individual who fails to show punctuality is someone who is not dependable.
It is not easy to find that person if ever needed at any other time.
They are disorganized and have not agenda.
Being careless about time makes them careless also about other aspects of life.
A person who is always late is only good for excuses and nothing else.
Punctuality increases your self-esteem and allows you to be more confident, and in this way you can rely or depend on yourself.
You can have control of yourself and be more stable in daily chores.
Punctuality makes one feel the best and are stress free.
Showing up late with a good reason is different from showing up with some lame excuse.
That leads you to nowhere but back in the same spot.
Arriving early makes me feel free from nervousness, or anxiety.
I have a chance to know how to go about my time spent for the rest of the evening or day.
One of the valuable habits to all individuals is punctuality.
Punctuality shows discipline in business deals and in the workplace, at meetings when meeting a friend, going on a date, and so many other activities in your lives.
Don't ignore punctuality.
· How can you be dependable if you are self-employed or working for someone if you don't show punctuality?
No company would employ someone who fails to show up on time for an interview.
Most companies have strict policies and if you don't abide by their policies you are fired.
Sometimes wait is worth your while and being punctual shows humility.
Most people would be more satisfied if you came earlier.
Don't forget that punctuality shows respect for each other.
If you are late in my opinion you are just being selfish. It is all about you.
What you don't realize in your selfish moment is each minute taken for yourself is another minute taken from the other person.
· Is that necessary?
Making others wait is not humble gesture. You are stealing their time for yourself.
It is not right for you to make others wait on you.
The time lost could have been a successful task but you failed to make it on time.
Time means money to some people.
Meet on the agreed hour don't be disrespectful to others.
You have to make sacrifices to be on time.
Maybe slightly change your daily routine see how much of a difference that would make for you.
Surely the other person would do the same for you.
It is about punctuality!
In showing up on time it shows you value this habit and yourself and the other person's time.
As you won’t steal a few dollars from another person's wallet, in the same way you should not steal time of the other person.
Though said time is money but time is of greater importance than money.
Note that time is never bought.
Make the most of the time you have not of the time you lost.
Students often turn up late in classes and this disrupts the lesson. Coming in late during lessons is rude.
The noisy door opens and a student roughly tries to find a seat over the rest of the students. That is a disturbing moment for everyone in the room.
In church the late comers arrive and disturb the prayer.
This happens when others are praying. There you are in the middle of it the prayer and breaking their moments.
· Does that make you feel good about yourself?
Relationships formed with other people are poorly developed if you are not on time.
· Others feel under-valued if you don't show up on time and what else could be more important than you being on time?
· Who wants to date someone who never shows up on time?
For example: sitting alone and waiting in a restaurant is not a great feeling or even at a bar.
Your date is not going to contact you again.
All children are picked up from school while your child waits alone and becomes sacred of waiting alone.
Rather be fifteen minutes early than fifteen minutes late.
Your services won't be required if you don't show punctuality.
No punctuality can hurt your life in many ways.
Missing the appointments or dinner time with a friend is rude and not respectful..
Meetings at the workplace should be on time.
Paying of bills should not be missed.
Going to church on time
Meeting your date should be taken seriously.
Getting to work on time is extremely important to employer and employee.
Making time for your child and family time, such aspects of life are neglected if you don't show punctuality.
The neglect to pay your traffic ticket can cause you a strained life.
Without punctuality you don't feel so positive, or responsible.
In Eastern Europe people think not much of punctuality life is easy-going. I still can't go with that kind of habit.
I prefer being on time than someone waiting on me.
I am from another part of the world and know for sure that punctuality is very important to be that dependable someone in society.
People talk about those who are never on time and once this happens you would not be contacted.
Time is Precious
Punctuality is very important
