Are you really very punctual? If I talk about me, I will say that I am not. Even I try to be very punctual but most of the time I am not able to be that. I try a lot and most of the time I am able to do things on time but in case when those things are not completely dependent on me, but if those depend on me I am not able. What about you?

Hi anurag, No. I am not very regular and this is the greatest flaw in my character.,On the other hand when I am punctual I am very very punctual but this does not happen so regularly. Earlier I was very regular but its been ten years like the layer of punctuality has vanished. Paradoxically I want otters to be punctual specially my student in my college. As long as I am at college I am punctual. I do not waste time chatting around with my colleagues. I was not punctual even in my studies. I would always keep things for tomorrow. And luckily I manage things at the eleventh hour.

I am punctual and I find it hard if people are late for an appointment. It is really frustrating when you turn up on time but the other person is late! But I do feel that is an `age` thing. i am a bit long in the tooth and punctuality is a habit.

I am very punctual. I've always been the type of person who was early for an appointment, for a class, and such. I don't like being late for things. I don't know why. I've just always been that way.

I am a self confessed unpunctual person. I try I really do. I find there is absolutely nothing I can do that helps me be more punctual for appointments and other events. Sometimes I think 'yes! I will get there today' but something always happens. I forget something, or the children have forgotten something, I didn't realise I needed Diesel in the car. I have pretty much resided to the fact that I will always be late for things or just on time by the skin of my teeth. It doesn't even help if I prepare things the night before.

Being punctual means sacrificing yourself at least an hour of your time on the way to the meeting place. And the same day when you have more meetings, it's almost the fantastic to now be fixed to all those meetings. Many times, punctuality is a matter which says a lot about a man's character and are often considered a frivolous person if you fail to come on time. No one cares how hard it is to manage to live long and how many things you could do in the time lost on the way to the meeting. I confess that I like to be punctual. I have an obsession with me to calculate in time such that the one whom I meet adjust their clock for me if possible. It is true that some people fail to be punctual, but if you know it's a man of hope, even if late, do not get worse, all the better, right?

When I was growing up, my mother was never a very punctual person and now that I am an adult, I have followed in her footsteps and I am not that punctual either. I know that there are plenty of times in my life where this is not a good thing, but I also think that things could be a lot worse and I would never be able to get anywhere remotely on time. I've been working on it and now that the kids are a little bit older it is getting somewhat easier.

It is not easy for me to be on time. When I know there is still enough time, I do not hurry, but when the time is almost out, something might happen that prevents me from leaving my home without delay.

I would say I am. But when it depends on the circumstances that were unavoidable, it usually makes me so upset for I really don't want to be late. I'm used to be ontime of any schedule especially when it is of significance. Even when during my school days, I hate to be late. I don't want to missed a thing thus makes me responsible to wake up early and do things according to my set time. I'm not used to know either that there is someone who sacrifices in waiting for me, thus makes me also to hate waiting. I really value time. If I can do things in the morning just to make sure that it has been done before any uncertainties arises, I will do it. I hate to regret of not doing things while I have the time. Waiting is what really pissed me of, and I don't want others to feel how I feel. For me, it is just a matter of time management and getting used of it. If it becomes part of our system, we can do it without so much exerting effort.

It's very important to be punctual and there's no harm if you do it always, actually it's the best! People can trust you and know that you really value and keep the time. It's important because it will help you. If you don;t practice to be punctual, your future will really be affected. Your career, your lifestyle and so on. BE PUNCTUAL.!

I like to think that I am but the fact is I'm exactly the opposite. When I must meet with someone I go late with 10, 15, 20 minutes.. But if someone is late when I'm waiting I'm very angry. Of course.. When I late, I always have a good reason :)) You know how it is. You are always right. :)) The thing is that when I must be punctual and have an important meeting, all the forces of the nature and all the unfortunate events crash before me...

I try to be punctual especially if there are other people involved like if I'm meeting with them. They say that time is gold so as much as possible, I don't like to take their time away from them by being late. I still try even though I know beforehand that the person I'm meeting will be late. Sometimes, I fail but generally, I'm punctual . Cheers to becoming more punctual!

yes im so punctual, im serious, is not bacause nobody here knows me or not but honestly, i always when i have a date, appointment, or business always request to respect the time. if you come late to one of my appointments you can be fired or we dont do business at all, time for me is precious, time is money, also reflects what kind of personality people has, and t make sure i will be ontime, i always schedule it and divide in two diferent categories important and very important and with a few days away in this way never fail to someone, it really irritates me when someone get late, please,,, dont be late.

Honestly I am very punctual sometimes to a fault. I hate being late for an appointment and that is why I am almost never late. The almost is due to the people I go with. Sometimes they hate me for rushing them when they know the person we are meeting will be late as well. Then again, I just want to be there at the time and place agreed upon. An example is getting to the office before the person who opens the locks and the door arrives. Happens to me a lot!

Yes, I am! I usually go on a class, meeting, appointments, and the like one hour before the time. Even Filipinos are known to be usually, I am not. Because of the unpunctuality of Filipinos, I always plan to make myself be late but unsuccessful, I am still the first one to appear in the meeting place. LoLs, hate it. hate late comers! xD

I am proud to say that i am a punctual person. I see to it that i wake up early and manage my time well in the morning so i won't be late to work. Even on meetings , i would always get ready and be at the place 5 minutes ahead of the schedule. I am like that ever since i went to school already.

I think I am a very punctual person. I don't like to be late as it is a bad habit and it wastes other's time. And I have to be a good example for my child. So I have to do it myself at first. I love China
