WTF!!!!!!!!! IS THIS SERIOUSLY AN ISSUE?!
Ohhhh my gawd girlfriends, I read this article on punctuality in SHOCK AND HORROR.
If you are not rocking up to work on time, let me tell you: it is giving you a bad reputation.
It's unprofessional, shows you don't respect others' time and here's the kicker: IT'S COSTING YOUR COMPANY HEAPS OF $$$$$$$
Some peeps don't think it 'being late' as 'costing money' but let me assure you managers do. They are thinking of a million things.. (various resources, priorities, budgets, staff issues, the last urgency that just hit their desk..) and above all: They can't trust their staff to rock up and do the work they pay them to do at the time they pay them to do it!
This is an EASY ONE to fix:
- Respect your time. - Respect you colleagues' time.
- Buy a freaking watch!
Don't feel bad about being late in the past. We are all on the trajectory of consistent improvement.
Just try *today* to be a minute early to everything and enjoy being the smartie who gets her pick of chairs at the meeting!
