If you want to be taken seriously, if you want your spot at the big leagues, you need to be on time. Because you better believe that there are others out there who want what you want and are going to do whatever it takes to get it. So if you have the habit of coming or being late, then you are just killing your chances. You are robbing yourself of the chance to be successful. Do not let those people who comes late to meetings or events and are seemingly successful fool you. They must have paid the price earlier in their lives. And only now are they taking a ‘break’. But what you must do now is to practise and try really hard to be on time; at your meetings, future events, etc. Make it so that it is a part of you so when a time comes where being on time will make or break it for you, you are ready to own it.
