Have you ever been late for a breakfast meeting or a client call? Did you see the look in your supervisor’s face when you finally arrived after 30 minutes?
Being late seems to be so ingrained in our business dealings that we give allowances of up to 1 hour for people to be late! And if you’re the one waiting for a tardy person to arrive, then you know how ridiculously annoying that is.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Here’s why you should stop being late!
It’s unprofessional. If you are always late for your meetings and your deadlines, you’re shouting to the world “I’m unprofessional!” Professionals appear on time and deliver work on time. People hate dealing with unprofessional people because it wastes time and money.
