Being Early is Being on Time.....
February 3, 2015
"Being early is being on time," says one of my sons-in-law and to be honest, it's a struggle! But today I read an article in the Wall Street Journal that had some very practical tips for being on time like:
+don't double book--no one can be in two places at one time--#of times I've forgotten to check my working calendar....countless!
+if you've got a top o' the morning meeting or appointment, have clothes ready the night before and use an alarm without a snooze function;
+if you get to the meeting early reward yourself by taking 5 with a cup o' joe;
+get enough sleep to think clearly;
+consider the cost of being late---remember those past consequences...;
+visualize yourself being on time--stay focused on that goal;
+when preparing to leave, let your phone go to voice mail;
+and finally set a phone alarm for when you need to get ready to leave and another for when you need to be out the door.
Now for implementation.....#the struggle is real!
