Early is on time

I am a big believer in the saying that “Early is on time, On Time is late and Late is unacceptable.” I try to get to every meeting and appointment a little bit early. I do this for a few reasons…

  • If I am running the meeting it gives me time to set up and open up the line instead of wasting time once everyone has arrived
  • I can pick my seat which does sometimes matter in certain meetings
  • I don’t want to disrupt a meeting already in progress
  • I do not have to rush (I hate rushing)
  • It allows for unexpected problems – for example if leaving for a doctor appointment there may be unplanned traffic which would make you late


Taking this approach does require some effort to leave a little early, prepare for travel time and ending other meetings on time. But I believe this is an important aspect to being a professional.
