It Is An Addiction

I’m late, I’m late,

For a very important date. No time to say “Hello, Goodbye”. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.

That is definitely me! My new resolution is to make being on time a priority. OK, am I only kidding myself or are you buying this load as well?

Am I the only one who is always late? Possibly. If I am early then I have wasted those few extra minutes. It is indeed unknown what I would do with a few extra minutes but at the time they feel important.

I hate being late the most to my exercise class. But obviously not bad enough to be on time. I dislike walking in late. Then I have to stand in the worst spot in the class. How dare someone to take my favorite spot. Don’t they know it is mine? Now I sound like a petulant child.

It’s a wrap. Today I will make it a priority to always be on time.

Here are my tactics.

Hope they work!

Set my clock 10 minutes late and then try to forget it is wrong.

Plan on being 10 minutes early to everything. I will take a good book and enjoy the extra time.

Set an alarm 15 minutes before the appointed time.

Keep my mind on the time.

Make being on time a priority.

Of course, the behavior of always being late is due to my lack of motivation, lack of interest, or simply habit. I vote for the habit since it is important to me to be on time to a few appointments.

I have heard this quote before.  “Our time is no more valuable than anyone else’s, and so it’s a matter of courtesy not to waste the time of others.”

Just as an aside. I did arrive at my exercise class early last week. I got up early and kept the time uppermost in my mind.

I planned on walking in on time and taking my spot before anyone else could commandeer it. It was difficult but I knew I could do this every day.

Class had been canceled!

As I exited the building, I could hear a chorus of chirps following me to my car. It is the sound, I am sure, of birds laughing.


Please share your plan for always being on time. It may be easy for some but for me, it is very difficult!
