Are you like to White Rabbit? Are you always or frequently late? Do you panic? Do you become irritated and rude? Do you miss out because you’re late?

The answer is simple. Be punctual! Be on time!

Punctuality, i.e. being on time, is a terrific habit to develop. You profit by developing this awesome habit for today and for your future. In this context “profit” refers to advantageous, valuable, productive and beneficial.

When you’re on time, friends know they can count on you. You develop more friendships through your positive reputation. This makes your future more profitable through having friends you can depend on.

When you’re on time for school classes, you won’t miss information you may need, such as, a quiz announcement, the lessons you should study for the quiz or a change in schedule. Your future is more profitable with better grades.
