Real men make it a point to be punctual.
There is a saying out there that says, “Suit up and show up.” It’s a great saying. We should all get it together and get where we are supposed to be, but in the crazy, stressed life of the average guy juggling work, family, friends, relationships and health, punctuality is not always at the top of the list. The following five easy steps will keep you on track and on time.
1. Get a watch!
Sorry to have to yell that one at you, but hey! Every man should have a watch today. There are no excuses not to. You can find stylish affordable watches literally everywhere. The point is, if you can’t get to things on time because you don’t know the time that just looks like laziness. In fact, that actually is laziness.
2. Get psyched up for it (whatever it is)
We all have tasks to do in life that we just do not want to do but still have to do. You will absolutely find yourself more eager and on time if you can find something (even the smallest thing) to get you excited about what you have to go to and do.
3. Lie to yourself
Sounds strange, doesn’t it? This can be kind of hard to do but not impossible and well worth the effort. When you know you have to be some place at a specific time, more the time up earlier in your plans. For example, you have a business meeting at 9 a.m. Act like it is at 8:30. Your date with that super hot woman you met on the subway is at 8 p.m. Show up at 7:30. There is no shame in being early while being late can cost you much more in working and personal relationships. You can even enlist the help of your friends and colleagues or family – just tell them to always tell you an earlier time!
4. Plan on down time
Even if everything you do goes according to plan, the rest of the world may want to make you wait (and be late). Plan on this – its Murphy’s Law after all. Be prepared with work or a cell phone so that the time you lose is not time wasted.
5. Let go of that “one last thing”
In an effort to cram it all in, many men with try to utilize every last second to get just about anything done. This is not worth it. You will rush through whatever it is and you will be late for your next engagement.
Like I said at the beginning, real men show up on time. So get a watch and get it together. Suit up. And show up. On time.
