Know the Effect of Tardiness in Your Schedule

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever feel so uneasy when you delegate work to somebody and that person did not do the work on your time. Or you have to wait for 15 minutes or half hour in your appointment. Are you the type of person who keeps others waiting. Find out on how tardiness can also effect your schedule.

It goes without saying that tardiness is a no-no in any professional establishment. Even if you are standing at a booking office or in a queue and you notice that the person in front of you is taking his or her own sweet time, you might start counting to ten so that you do not lose your temper.

Most of us cannot tolerate slowness. Sometimes even if the person who is taking a long time is a senior citizen and is incapable of making haste we produce a range of sounds to show our exasperation.

So we have so much impatience with others, how much patience wills others have with us. I believe that there are three groups of people in this world. They are:

1.The people who always are on time
2.The people who make an honest effort but more often than once fail to reach on time
3.The group of people who make a living by selling used toothpicks.

Actually there is no group like the third group. The people who really come in that group are the people who do not make any effort at all to be on time. But then they cannot be considered as people at all and are better off selling used toothpicks and my blessings into the bargain.

I used to find it very difficult to believe that there could actually be people who did not care two hoots for time. But there are. I do not know about you, but I really believe that people who consciously waste their time and because of them, the time of others as well, are real criminals. They should be made to walk the plank. While the rest of us are struggling so hard to make the maximum use of the time that we have, there are people who do not care a damn about things like being late or making others wait.

I suppose most of us fit into the second category that is the group of people who do make an honest effort to reach on time and do things on time but often fail mainly due to reasons beyond our control. So is there any way out of this? Of course there is and that is what we are going to talk about.

The first thing that we have to do is to develop a deep concern for the time of others. Of course we have the liberty to waste our time.(I consider even that wrong , but opinions may be different). But we have no right to waste the time of others. It is just very, very bad manners to keep a person waiting. It shows inconsideration and selfishness on our part.

Once you instill this thought deep into your mind there is a lesser chance that you will keep another person waiting because we all want other to think and speak good about us.

The second thing that you have to do is understand that if you are late for something that involves more than one person than the severity of the situation ids raised several fold. Like for instance you are late for a meeting that involves, say, 12 people and they are waiting for you reach to begin the meeting.

You might be just five minutes late. That seems ok enough because five minutes is not such a big deal. But a crucial point that you may be missing out there is that it not just five minutes that is wasted. Since there are 12 people who are waiting for you, you are in effect wasting.
