Are you a punctual person ?

To be punctual means to do what you should do on time.A punctual person always cherishes his own time and seldom complains,a person who is known to be habitually unpunctual is never trusted by his friends or colleagues. Therefore punctuality is of great importance for every one of us.That is why people say, "Punctuality is the soul of business." Are you a punctual person ?yes,i'm.

Ideality is just an aim to reach, but no one succeeded, so I am a punctual person but get late for some meetings to my friends who just want to have fun and to waste time. And I am surely punctual in my academics and never get late. Especially when comes to seriousness to any moment I am a bit more than punctual. I never let anyone's hope down for me. And so even whatever be the time If someone known has a need then I will be there for him / her. Have a nice day.

In business we find that not being punctual cost a lot more than just the lost time. It causes loss of contract and loss of opportunity. I don't do business with people who don't give a good timetable.

For myself i like to be at least 15 mins early. I am like this for just about everything in my life. I see no advantages in being late. Take care Wm69love88.

i am a very punctual person. i am usually at places 10 to 15 minutes before i am supposed to be there. my boyfriend on the other hand doesn't care about time. he always says, "we'll get there when we get there." this bothers me because to me if you tell someone you'll be there at a certain time you should be there at that time and not 1 minute later

yeah, I am a punctual person. the reasons for me to be punctual are as follows: 1) To show my respect to the others. It is well known that if we want the others to respect us, we must respect the others first.Unpunctuality is a rude behavior,I think. 2) To be punctual can build up your credit or trust.I am punctual,because I want to send the message to the other side like this: I mean what I say. Completely agree with what you said "Punctuality is the soul of business." No body wants to do business with those who are not trustworthy. 3) To waste the other people's time is just like shortening other people 's lives. It is a sin that can not be forgiven.

I am punctual only to open my mail box and to reply all mails otherwise I am very lazy and cannot keep commitment due to lazyness. Due to lazyness I miss many opportunity and fun from my friends.

Yes, I consider myself to be a punctual person. I hate it when I've made plans with other people and they don't arrive on time. I find it a waste of time waiting around for people to get there when they say they will. Why give a time to meet if they won't be there anyway?

if i am in control of a situation, i am a punctual person. however, sometimes i am not in control. taxis are not always on time, my ride isn't always on time. the person i am going to meet isn't always on time.

i am a very punctual person. if im late i am so mad at myself. it also irks me that when i get my kids up for school they take their time getting ready. so far this year my son has been late to school 7 times. its all due to the fact that he doesnt use his time wisely in the morning. i think its very important to be on time for everything.

I always on time. I just hate to be late. I would rather be early than late. I don't like it when the same people are always late. It really bugs me. If someone tells me 3:00 then I am there at 3:00. It's not a hard thing to do.

I like to be on time. In the navy they taught me to get there 15 minutes early because that was on time. I find that those who are late all the time are not respecting the fact that others are waiting on them.

Yes I am punctual at everything. It may be duty or works related to home, family, any ceremony etc. I always try to reach in time, if not possible before. In the beginning it is difficult to manage, but later on after practice it is very easy. Our inner conscious remind about time.

yes, i m very punctual person . neither i like to wait nor i want anyone wait for me. late, and waiting gives me a headache. people who dont value time can not progress as then time will not value them and they'll be left behind from everyone. its veru much true that " Punctuality is the soul of Business".
