If there’s one thing I’m a stickler about, it’s time. Growing up I was part of a traveling soccer team and my coach was all about punctuality. My mom unfortunately was not. As a result I spent many practices running extra laps because she would drop me off late. At the time I never understood why my coach would hold me accountable for my mom’s actions. I see now he was trying to teach me life lessons that I’ve later come to apply in my professional career.
Being on time may not always seem important, especially if you don’t have to punch a clock at work, but it is. There’s more to punctuality than avoiding an awkward conversation with your boss about why you were late. It’s about showing your commitment, that you’re a person who keeps their word. More than that it’s a sign of respect. We all know the feeling of having our time wasted, minutes or even hours gone that we will never get back. And we also know what it feels like when you put a lot of effort into something and no one seems to care. When you’re on time you’re telling someone that you respect them and what they do. I mean you know what they say, time is money.
That’s why one of my favorite accessories is a watch. There’s nothing more timeless or versatile. I’m currently crushing on this wood watch from Jord, which how cool is it we practically share the same name.
