Learn how to be Punctual with 2 Graphology Master Tips!
The other day, I had a meeting with the Managing Director of a company. I had a tight schedule for the day as I had three meetings back-to-back on that very day. The second meeting was of utmost importance, as I had been chasing this person for a while now. My frequency was high, and I was very happy. My day was supposed to start with this meeting and all three clients were located at quite a distance from each other. While I made sure to be on time for the meeting, as time passed, I noticed that it was already 25 minutes into the meeting time, and the MD hadn’t shown up yet. Now, it might sound to you that being late by 25 minutes is very normal, but let’s have a look at the changes that it can lead to!
So, what happens if one thing is delayed in your day?
The MD comes in late. Your frequency is not the same. It drops. Your energy is not the same with which you came for the meeting.
Because of this, it changed the timings of the current meeting and the meetings after.
As the meeting begins, you start looking at your watch and panic mentally as you don’t want to be late for the next meeting.
Thereafter, you are physically there in the current meeting but not available mentally.
Then you start losing interest and just want to make a way out of there.
The MD finally ends the meeting and you realize that you are very late for the next meeting. The buffer time to prepare for the next meeting is now gone.
It was instead used up by travelling to the place, anxiety, stress, overthinking about how the meeting would go and so on. Your frequency changes. You have to deal with low frequency. Moreover, the meeting with the CEO doesn’t end very well.
Your internal and external environment both changes. You make it on time for the last one but because your frequency is low, you don’t give your 100% at the last meeting.
So how important is being on time?
The above process explains to us clearly, how important it is to be ON TIME for a meeting or an event – whether you are a MD, a CEO or an employee.
• It leaves an image of you that you value the time of others. It is a sign of respect.
• Being on time also keeps you calm and aligned.
• Time is money. Use your time wisely and do not procrastinate. Procrastination will lead to wastage of time, and we know that time that is lost won’t come back.
• People can rely on you. They will be sure that the work given will be delivered on time.
Ways to use your time :
• As you reached on time and are aware that the second meeting is important, use the waiting time to prepare yourself for the second meeting.
• Also, it is better that you excuse yourself on time from the current meeting, as per the allotted time slot, so that you are not late for the second meeting.
• Another option is to inform the person at the second meeting that you are running a little late. This will save you the stress and anxiety caused, and keep you collected and calm. You will have more clarity and will know exactly what to do and how to do it.
