“People count the faults of those who keep them waiting.”
Winners have certain characteristics. Promptness is one of them. Highly successful people make it a habit to be on time for their appointments. Being on time shows your interest in the meeting and it shows that you care about the person you are meeting with. Tardiness is actually a form of selfishness. When you show up late for an appointment, you are saying by your actions that your time is more valuable than the other person’s.
Certainly, things may come up that prevent you from meeting your appointment on time. But overall, being prompt in arriving at the time agreed upon is a habit well worth the effort. When you’re on time for an appointment, you show your respect for the other person’s time.
Being prompt reveals something else about your character. It says, “I’m a person of my word.” When you promise to be somewhere at a certain time, your effort to be there is a sign that you keep your promises.
On time, all the time! It’ll work for you.
