A business website has run an article on how to change the habit of always being late. The writer confesses she is habitually late for work and social events. She consulted an expert on managing time. She received four tips on how to improve. One tip is to actually measure a task, such as a commute to work. The expert thinks the late person bases her estimate on a best case scenario. Another tip is to think about the results of being late.
- Tardiness is primarily caused by wildly inaccurate estimations of time.
- Consequences of chronic lateness range from financial loss to feelings of guilt.
- A change of mindset regarding time will resolve the habit of lateness, reduce anxiety and improve personal relationships.
