How to Stay on Time and Keep Your Schedule Clutter-Free!

This blog is written by Catherine O. our campus ambassador from Barton College.

I&m not one to have many pet peeves but one that really bothers me is when people are late. I have always been taught that it is very important to be punctual. It&s not good to hold people up or cause any inconvenience for them. I will offer a few quick tips to help with you become more punctual.

At the beginning of the day (or the night before), make a list of things to do and set your priorities. This can help you become clutter-brain free throughout the day.

Take time to plan each activity and give yourself ample time to complete each task before starting on the next. This will also eliminate any mistakes or setbacks to your schedule.

If you have planned an activity, meeting, dinner, event, etc. in advance, make sure to schedule less important things around it. Don&t plan anything around the time of any big event! For example, don&t plan a nail/hair appointment at 1pm and be scheduled to attend a friend&s wedding at 2pm. Who knows what could happen within that time frame that could cause you to miss or be late to your friend&s wedding.

Last but not least, if something unexpected happens that may cause you to be late, make sure to call the person with whom you are meeting with to inform them of your possible tardiness.

I hope these tips help you all!
