#0081 Missing DEADLINES?

We’re ALL Busy. Some cope well with the Stress of everyday and others always seem to be STRAINED by it all.

A particular PEEVE of mine is when People keep me waiting.

I can cope with with the occasional tardiness but what really gets me GRINDING my teeth are those whose are consistently late. If it annoys me you can be SURE it annoys your Customers.

If you’re consistently late you are PERCEIVED as being:

  • Unreliable
  • Disrespectful
  • Selfish
  • Stressed

And its not just turning up late to meetings, what about delivering your product or completing that proposal you promised.

On the CONVERSE, those who are always on time (or even early) are perceived as being:

  • Trustworthy
  • Respectful of others
  • Less Stressed

Treat deadlines with the RESPECT it deserves and you will gain the Respect of others.


  1. Absolutely right. I am glad you reminded me about that, because I tend to leave everything to the last minute and then get panicked, which totally paralyses me. You are a wonderful coach, Jewels. I always wait impatiently for your next piece.
