Tips to Never Be Late Again

  1. Keep a schedule and stick to it: Keeping an extremely detailed schedule will help you to know where you have to be and when you need to be there. Don’t overbook yourself, because then you will almost certainly be late for everything. Give yourself some space in between the tasks on your schedule so that you aren’t rushed or pressed for time.
  2. Put a dollar in a jar every time you’re late: If this doesn’t make you want to stay on time, I don’t know what will! For every time you run late, you have to put a dollar into a jar. You can’t take it out again unless you are early for something. This is either going to be a great way to save money fast, or it will help you learn to be on time for things.
  3. Give yourself 10 minutes extra: On your schedule, give yourself 10 extra minutes to get places. More than likely, this will help you be right on time to things! If you have to be somewhere at 6, make a note that you actually have to show up at 5:50. That extra 10 minutes gives you so wiggle room and saves you the stress of being 10 minutes later than you would have been.
  4. Wear a watch: Yes, we all have our phones and electronics to tell time. But, they aren’t always right next to us. Wearing a watch allows you to know what time it is instantly (and help remind you when your extra 10 minutes is up). Surrounding yourself with clocks will help you to stay on track with your schedule. You will never be the one to ask what time it is again!No one wants to be the person that is always late to everything. Check out this tips on never being late again with this unique watch

  5. Being on time is something that my family is really good at. I hate it when people aren’t respectful of other people’s time. Great tips!

  6. My lateness is hereditary. My grandmother used to tell my parents that dinner was half an hour earlier…then we’d get there on time. 😉 Smart lady. But this watch is really cute…I need one!

  11. Great advice! I hate being late, but I always seem to cut it so close, maybe wearing a watch will help 🙂

  12. Love this! Jord watches are so pretty and I also hate it when people are late. Maybe if they had a pretty watch they would be on time 🙂 I definitely plan an extra 20 minutes into everything to make sure I’m on time!

  13. Running late the story of my life!

  16. I’m usually on time but towards the short days in the winter I tend to get a bit later because of the dark. I definitely get up earlier then.

  17. I hate being late! Although sometimes with a toddler it’s impossible to be on time lol. Most of the time though, I aim to leave 10-15 minutes before I need to just in case. I don’t typically wear a watch, but my husband looooooves watches. I entered the contest though so maybe I’ll win and find one I like!

  18. what a cool watch! and so cool that it’s wood!
