Everybody can be more punctual if they follow these three simple tips. Being punctual is very important as it ensures that we do not hold other people up for social or business arrangements. Punctuality is also a basic form of politeness.
Firstly, keep an accurate diary or calendar so that you know exactly what your schedule is at all times. Be very careful not to overbook yourself otherwise you will end up disappointing at least one of the people you are supposed to meet.
Secondly, ensure that you leave yourself time to get to all of your engagements and to get ready for them. That means factoring time into your schedule for getting up, getting dressed and transporting yourself to wherever you need to be.
Thirdly and finally, punctuality requires a certain mindset. You need to cultivate a commitment to your appointments and a sense of obligation to others. You don’t like to be kept waiting, do you, so why should they?
