If you are 5 minutes early, you are already 10 minutes late! - Vince LombardiThis deeply insightful quote from one of the most influential coaches of all time, Vince Lombardi, shows the importance of being on time at any costs. Not only is it a key factor in successful people it is a small way to be respectful to yourself and others and thereby you get to momentarily grasp immortality. Coach Lombardi was acutely in tune with creating successful athletes and winning machines. He has many memorable quotes, but the one referenced above is at the top of my list of favorites.
I would rather have my face stapled to the floor than to be late. It is THAT important to me. On the days I work I have to be there by either 6:45 a.m. or 6:45 p.m., depending on what shift I'm working. Everyone I work with knows that if I am not there by 6:30 then something must be terribly wrong. For me, being on time is the foundation for how successful a day will be. Not only is it a simple way to show others respect, it shows how much you respect yourself.

I understand that no one is perfect and sometimes the unmanageable occurs, but if running late is normal for you then you may want to re-evaluate your priories. I build enough time into my schedule that even if something unforeseen pops up I can usually still make my appointments.
What are some ways you stay on time? What tips and tricks do you use to keep your schedule running smooth?
