Being a perpetual latecomer is the worst thing you can do for yourself. When you are known to be a latecomer, the perception people will have of you will be very low.
In whatever field you find yourself, being a latecomer will send across a bad image about you.
These are some of the ways people see you when they know you can’t keep to time.
1. YOU SHOULDN’T BE TAKEN SERIOUS
You lose your integrity in people’s eyes when they can’t trust you with their time. People wouldn’t take you seriously when they know you are always going to be late.
2. YOU ARE A TERRIBLE LEADER
A good leader leads by example, while a terrible leader tries to use force. Being a leader isn’t about the position you have been given or the title you hold; being a leader is about winning the trust of your followers, and you can’t do that when you are a perpetual latecomer.
3. YOU LACK DRIVE AND FOCUS
You can’t have the drive to achieve success and fail with your timing. The most successful people in every given field manage their time wisely.
4. YOU DON’T CARE
People will believe you don’t care when you’re always late. It’s not about how you feel inside but what you show, and people will believe your actions than your words. You pass a message that you don’t care whenever you come late.
Do you have a penchant for being late? Don’t be surprised that you have a bad reputation; it’s all about the message that you pass, and you’ve been passing the wrong message.
