Appointments are a part of life both in personal and professional fields. Time is a precious resource and maintaining an appointment is an important element for success in life. Without the respect it deserves, the value of time can lead to lost opportunities.
“The habit of being prompt once formed extends to everything — meeting friends, paying debts, going to church, reaching and leaving place of business, keeping promises, retiring at night and rising in the morning, going to the lecture and town-meeting, and, indeed, to every relation and act, however trivial it may seem to observers.” –William Makepeace Thayer, Tact and Grit, 1882
Scheduling allows for productive power in all your duties. Without proper scheduling, your life will quickly become a chaotic and unorganized mess, raising stress, for not only you but for your clientele as well. Adhering to schedules and appointments reduces the pressure of time and results in better decision-making, therefore increasing value to yourself and others.
The demands for our time are greater now than ever before. We live in a time where information coming at us is faster than we can digest it, responsibilities administered faster than we can handle them, and communication is moving at rapid speed. Finding ways to fit as much as possible into your day is daunting, but planning your day can help you focus on those tasks that matter most, in both our personal and business world.
