Yes, there are times that you got too busy and you have had a hard time of weighing your social life and work because of your hectic schedule. There are times you forgot some appointments or you can’t get there on time, because you are still catching up your sleep or you are still in your dreamland. Oh well, you are not alone because I am actually oftentimes are doing the same.
Worst, when I can’t make it at all, I would make up some excuses especially if I think that they are less important. In which I know is very unfair to the person whom I would meet because they are doing their best to make way for their time just for me. So how to be punctual, there are many ways not to say late or no with an appointment.
Write your appointment down, and cancel ahead. I mean you don’t want that person to be waiting for you the whole day right? So a day or two days before the appointment, maybe you can find some time to text them that you can’t come because you caught up with much more important things. Try to arrange again another appointment and you have to make sure this time that you can make it no matter what. By writing your appointment you will never forget them at all, do not fool yourself to believe that you can put it in your mind without making a scribble of such appointment.
Recite and study your tasks. I know that you won’t receive any report card but you may not know it, you are being evaluated from the person that you are meeting up with. If you come there on time, it would show that you respect and value their time of having that appointment with you.
Repeat your schedule to your mind, because in repeating there’s a big chances that you will not forget your task during the day. In that way you won’t disappoint the person you are meeting up with, they would believe that you care for them and their schedule as also packed like yours.
And yes, we need a watch for us to know that if we are late or not, I always wore my watch everytime and if it’s not in my wrist at all. I feel like I am not complete.
