Punctuality as we all know is being taught from schooling. But how many of us really follow is the question. I give lots of respect to punctuality. i wish to remain ahead of time wherever it may be. nut most of my friends belong to the other category. This always kindles the question whether punctuality is so important and what do we achieve because of this? How about you? What are your thoughts on this?

I think that it is very important to be punctual. Having said that, i find that I have been on the verge of being late very often since I had my children. Getting three little ones fed, dressed, and into carseats always seems to take longer than I anticipate. In the age of cell phones, though, I really don't like when people are going to be late and don't bother to call and let me know.

Yes dear , I was taught this from young age...and still follow it strictly.Many of mt friends are not so punctual , but some of them are very much punctual. Those who are not so punctual , try to be , when they have a schedule withme.And , they respect , my being punctual. I think , people should try to be punctual and in doing so ,they will earn respect from others.

I think that punctuality is important.Though I am not always punctual I feel it is of utmost importance.before all this it is essential to make a plan of things you would do say for a day.Then you should stick to the plan and be punctual.That will help you to work out your planned activities to a logical conclusion.This would help acquiring time management skills.

I think it's important to be punctual, especially in formal settings. It's good if you don't want to miss out on anything or if you want to make a good impression. There's nothing wrong with showing up early or right on time...that is unless the mother-in-law's coming over.... lol

i there. yes it is always very important to stay punctual as possible. i think half of your reputation is based on your punctuality when going to work or class. it is more important in work because im sure your boss is very strict when it comes to punctuality of his subordinates.
