Discipline and Punctuality

Discipline and punctuality are two most essential traits required in a professional to be successful. Discipline ensures individuals behave in an acceptable way at the workplace and also adhere to the rules and regulations of the organization.

You have to be there at the meetings venue sharp on time, no matter what it takes. Being late to meetings is indeed a crime in today’s business scenario where your client has access to unlimited alternatives just at the click of a button.

Being disciplined and punctual allow you to enjoy your work and office never becomes a boring place. Disciplined employees seldom find their names dragged in controversies or nasty politics. No one would respect you if you are not disciplined and punctual.

When George Washington’s secretary arrived late to a meeting, and blamed his watch for his tardiness, Washington quietly replied, “Then you must get another watch, or I another secretary.”  For Washington, being on time was a way of showing respect to others, 
and he expected to be treated with the same level of respect in return.

“Undertake not what you cannot Perform but be Careful to keep your Promise.” 

" I could never think well  of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually 
unfaithful to his appointments"  Nathaniel Emmons
