It is said that being punctual is the first rule of power; be on time and you can dominate most situations but be late and you can lose control. But being on time is not just about how people view us but how we view ourselves. Punctuality boosts self-confidence and promotes personal discipline. And it has a positive effect on the workplace. Arriving ahead of time highlights integrity, professionalism and dependability – all vital assets in creating then maintaining your own personal brand.
