Ten minute timer shift
Today…time management. Schedule control is how I like to put it. And I wanna share a quick story to show how a ten minute timer shift can turn you from an egghead to a shining professional.
It’s a little ten minute timer shift. But it can make a huge difference.
A long time ago, I was working in a big corporation. And there were about 100 of us in our big conference room. And one of my coworkers walked in late. It was only about five to seven minutes late. Nothing huge. But my boss…embarrassed him in front of everybody, and that always stuck with me.
And he said, “Frank…if you can always be late, you can always be early.”
And that always resonates with me. Because it’s true. What is that?
It’s habits. Right? Yeah, there’s the occasional thing that comes up. An accident. Kid gets sick. Doctor’s appointment. Whatever. But, if you’re repeatedly late, that’s a habit you formed. And you can undo that habit. If you’re always ten minutes late, get up ten minutes earlier. And you should put away whatever you’re working on. Stop trying to do that “one more thing” before you go. And get going.
It’s important to be on time.
And it’s important to show up for other people…on time. Because it says a lot about who you are.
And I know you’re a caring person, and a professional. So, I know you understand how important it is to act accordingly.
