On Time

When you go on vacation with him, play golf with him, have dinner with him…when you do anything with him, he is, and always has been early and NEVER EVER makes anyone wait on him. Growing up my parents taught me a lot of great lessons, but this one very simple thing is probably one of the most valuable lessons my dad taught me. My dad understands that the most valuable asset people have is their time and when you are late you are telling people you don’t care about them. Most people who know me know I am early for almost everything and have heard me talk about being on time means…5 minutes early. The funny thing is we did not talk much about it when I was growing up. What my dad did is he led by example and he did it himself. Because of that, it was burned into me that it is just the way it is suppose to be. I never really knew anything different or that there was another option.When you are on time, or better yet early, it tells people you are disciplined, organized, accountable, reliable, respectful, and on top of things…it tells people you care. When you are late, it not only wipes these out, but it tells people you are lackadaisical, unorganized, unreliable, disrespectful, and out of control…it tells people you don’t care. The funny thing is now-a-days most people live life late, so if you show up a bit early, you stand out like a sore thumb (in a good way of course). It is like getting a 20 yard head start in a 100 yard dash.Now, I know what a lot of you are saying. “I just have too much on my plate. I am running from one thing to another and I just can’t do it.” BULL! If we magically had 25 hours in a day instead of 24, it will still be the same excuse. That is just a crappy affirmation you need to get out of your noggin and replace it with, “I am in control…I am a great time manager…I am always on time” Do you want to have more? Do you want to be more successful? Do you want to win? Do you want to be in control? Institute the on time means…5 minutes early and I promise you will be blown away by the results. Not to mention it is a heck of a lot less stressful than living life 5 minutes late.
