Time is important to all of us. I always feel that there is never enough time to do all the things I planned to do. I buy planners to write down our schedules and watch videos to learn how to use my time better and not waste any. But at the same time
How to be punctual?
I found that the best way to be punctual is to plan ahead and know yourself. When I go to sleep at night I think about what I have to do tomorrow and how much time I need for everything. For example, if I have to wash my hair in the morning I know I have to wake up at least 30 minutes earlier to have time for that. If I oversleep that half an hour I just have to accept that I made a mistake and go on with my dirty hair. (maybe just put it in a ponytail or a bun) But, you just have to learn from those mistakes. Maybe go to bed earlier so that you get enough sleep.
Punctuality is after all also a sign of self-control. Control to start getting ready on time and stop being lazy. If something unpredictable happens then you should definitely send a message or call the person that might be waiting for you. In my opinion, punctuality is a very important trait to have.
It is a different story if I waste my own time or you waste my time. Waiting for something or someone is one of the most annoying things. I could be doing something else, that I actually want to do. And the fact that I have no idea how much I will have to wait makes the wait seem even longer. If I have to wait for more than half an hour without any reason, I would probably decide to do something else. Since the other person does not care enough to not make me wait I might as well not care and mind my own business.
