The Importance of Punctuality :
« on: June 29, 2010, 06:38:08 PM »
Lateness is a sign of poor time management skills 

When you are late for appointments, meetings or work, you show a lack of respect for other people’s time as well as your own. Punctuality is a problem for many people.
 
How can we ensure that we keep appointments by arriving on time? Here are some suggestions:
 
1. Make up your mind that you will be punctual from now on. In many cases lateness is caused by a lack of commitment to arrive on time. Have the right mindset.
 
2. Record the commitment in your planner and also record the time you must leave the house or office in order to arrive on time. Plan to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early.
 
3. If you have a fair distance to travel, always allow more time than you think it will take.
 
4. Don’t be trapped by the one last thing syndrome. If you’re ready to leave and it's still early, leave anyway. Utilize the time at the other end rather than trying to finish one more task before you leave.
 
5. If you are not a morning person, but have early morning commitments, set the alarm a little earlier. Some of us may need to go to bed a little earlier to make this work.
 
  When it comes right down to it, punctuality is a habit that can be developed. It takes great effort at first, but eventually simply happens. Habits are formed by repetition. If you want to acquire the habit of punctuality, you must repeat this behavior again and again.

Punctuality is one of the most required qualities of an employee. An employee should be appreciated and rewarded  for punctuality, i believe.

I think we should appreciate those who have been serving our organization more sincerely than he or she is supposed to do. We also should  appreciate those who carry out their duties and perform their responsibilities rendering more time than it is required every day. We should reward and recognize such employees.

Punctuality uplifts one's position in the society and in the organization.

Rewarding a punctual person stimulate that person as well as the surroundings.
