A Hard Facts About Time Management
There’s an old saying that if you’re 5 minutes early to work, you’re on time. However, if you’re on time, you’re late.
#3-We All Know Someone Who Is Chronically Late
We tease that he would be late to his own funeral. But, it’s not really funny, is it? Dinner is delayed. You miss the beginning of the movie. Your coffee spills as he hits your chair while he rushes to take his seat at a meeting. It takes a minimum of 4 emails before he ever responds to an email.
#2-Why Can’t This Person Be On Time?
Because he chooses not to. There’s just no motivation (or the right motivation) for that person to be timely. How can you tell this is true? Ask your friend, coworker, etc… if a million dollars were at stake, could they be on time? The answer is yes.
#1-So, Here’s How To Change Your Mindset
Think of every commitment from that perspective: What if a million dollars were at risk? If you want to take it a step further, think about what a selfish choice you’re making when you choosing to inconvenience others … because that is EXACTLY what you are doing.
