In today’s fast paced world, it’s very important to be on time for everything. Whether it’s for a date, a job interview or a job itself, being on time matters. When you are punctual, you prove you are not a slacker and are serious about your duties. In a working environment, the impression it creates may help you get on your boss’s good side and maybe get that promotion you’ve been eyeing for so long. So, here are some tips to help you stay punctual.
Organise all the things you will need for work the night before. Pick out and iron the clothes you will wear the next day, and put your keys, phone and wallet in one place to avoid any rush the next day.
Go to bed early. As tempting as it might be to browse the internet or watch the latest episode of “Breaking Bad,” force yourself to sleep early to avoid waking up sleep deprived and tired, as this will only slow you down and make it more likely for you to be late.
Organise a carpool with friends. If there is a risk that your tardiness may directly affect your friends, you’re more likely to be punctual. Also, carpooling is better for the environment and will help you save gas.
If carpooling isn’t an option, try riding a bike. There’s a reason why this biking fad is sweeping Dhaka city. By cycling to work, you can avoid getting stuck in traffic and can reach work in record time. Not to mention, you’ll also get in some good exercise everyday.
