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!
