The Joys of Being on Time

The Joys of Being on Time

There are virtually zero drawbacks to being on time, yet very many benefits. It is a completely and purely good thing to be on time:

  • You can have two cups of coffee instead of one
  • You don’t have to apologize
  • You don’t inconvenience anyone else
  • You can have a relaxed morning instead of a rushed one
  • You can actually enjoy some music or a podcast on the way to your appointment
  • You don’t mess up your make-up putting it on in the car
  • You’re seen as more reliable and faithful by your friends and colleagues
  • If you’re carpooling, you’re not responsible for others being late as well
  • It’s much easier to handle problems that may arise when you’re not frantically trying to get somewhere
  • You are obedient to the command to “make the best use of your time” (Ephesians 5:16)
