How important it is to be punctual for business
Being punctual is a discipline that consists on being on time to meet our obligations and do our tasks, such as an appointment, meeting with friends, a task pending to be delivered at the office, and being punctual is extremely valuable, so it is necessary to apply this in all senses as it will make you be more efficient and will develop your character and personality.
“If you use to arrive punctually at an appointment, you are showing respect for the person you are meeting, plus you give the certainty to be serious and responsible to make sure you get there at the time previously established”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
Some people is punctual just in special occasions, such as a job interview, to a business meeting, or those type of events that they consider as “important”, but that is not what punctuality really is about, you need to be very conscious that all appointments are just as important and your presence is needed on the precise moment you were asked to.
If you have an appointment at an established hour, it is recommended to always focus on what you are doing before, this would help you saving enough time to arrive at that meeting at the time you agreed to.
Remember that unpunctual persons are always trying to make excuses as to why they could not make it on time, but the people around them loses trust on them, and it is about the opposite for a punctual person, whenever he or she cannot arrive on time for an extraordinary situation, they are respected for being honest when they tell why they arrived a little bit later.
“We need to work on the habit of punctuality, it is not only necessary to make and agenda, if you are being unpunctual, you need to find out what is exactly what does not let you arrive on time and start working on changing this behavior, you will notice how glad people is to see you entering in a room 5 minutes before you were asked to”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
