Well, I am on a roll now; so while I am ranting, may I also suggest that lateness is nothing about bad time management, it’s about respect.
If you respect the people waiting for you to join the meeting, or the clients you are to visit, or someone who has come to see you, and are late, then you demonstrate a simple lack respect for them. You are being rude, and there is no excuse. It’s not about time management, it’s about not respecting the people who are waiting or are made to wait.
So be on time, have respect, make a good impression, turn up early, prepared, looking neat and bright. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
