Being on Time

Since my car usually carries me to an appointment, I set the car clock back 7 or 8 minutes permanently. It gives me "catch-my-breath" time. It keeps me from having a panic attack as I cut it close for an appointment.

I have a bad habit of being 5 minutes late almost everywhere I go. Whether it's work, school or entertainment, I have a hard time getting anywhere on time.

If I'm going to have to wake up and get ready to leave for an appointment then I set not one, but two alarm clocks in my bedroom. One next to the bed, and one set to go off not more than 10 minutes later.

I set three clocks in the house 5 minutes ahead. I set my alarm clock, the clock in the kitchen, and the one in the dining room ahead. Those are the clocks I go by when getting ready to go out the door.

What helps me be on time is back timing. I start with my arrival time, then work backwards with the parking time, travel time, getting ready to go time, plus a few extra minutes for a cushion.

The holidays are around the corner. Many are on vacation/traveling, students on holiday, last minute shopping or unexpected accidents can occur.
