I had read the lives of great people and I noticed that Punctuality is very important to success in life. I never could have done without the habits of Punctuality, order and diligence, without the determination there is no success. As a simple example Practice! Practice! Practice! to be punctual.
Punctuality is the characteristic of being able to complete a required task or fulfill an obligation before or at a previously designated time. “Punctual” is often used synonymously with “on time”. It is also acceptable that punctual can, when talking about grammar, mean “to be accurate”. According to each culture, there is often an understanding about what is considered an acceptable degree of punctuality.
Usually, a small amount of lateness is still acceptable and depend on certain situation. But this is not in the case such instances for doctors, military, fire brigades and etc. In there are societies expectation is much sticker. In Japanese society, they become no one successful country proving by implementing punctuality pillars in their culture.
Punctuality is another word that completing the task within the expected time respecting the value of time and it reflects the person who respects other person and their time as well. In this current days punctual is very important where is related to discipline, integrity, respect and character of a person. Punctuality is important to each and every one to make themselves disciplined. Not only an organization, Punctuality is actually applicable to any one of us regardless weather you are coming from which category of people, nature of working, social-economy, education, religious, politic background and etc. Where this to address a person is reliable, trustworthy and professionalism.
In any working environment contact, Punctuality is sign and well known among the employer to address a person competency generally, where is related to personnel self-awareness, discipline, integrity, respect and character of a person which it’s also reflecting a person up-bringing. Being punctual helps everyone to establish their reputable and dependable employee.
In any industries, including Healthcare punctuality and good time management are demanded by any and all employers. Punctuality is important in all workplaces, but especially in those that employ nurses. Shift changes and rotations must occur like clockwork to ensure that there are no gaps in patient care. Without punctuality, patient needs go unmet and doctors can’t perform their responsibilities in a timely and effective manner.
To make punctuality is everyone’s strength, responsibility and duty no matter religious or races they still have to be on time or earlier by 10 minutes. Politician need to carry out their punctuality as they are one of the leader by example to their people. As the one of the great example of greatest leader has quoted by our prophet Mohammad about one of religious quoted in hadith “The Prophet ﷺ said “Verily Allah has prescribed ihsan (perfection) in all things.” (Muslim). It is explaining being a part of having “ihsan” is being punctual. Discipline is something which you should not only have but should also appear to have. In a simple example when you arrive late, you look undisciplined.
As mentioned above employers, employees, politicians or any individuals need self-discipline and punctuality as this describe each and every one’s self extreme. Therefore, we see how punctuality plays a major role in anyone’s life. If we are not punctual, we cannot be as successful as others. In addition, this competitive world demands punctuality so that all of us can be successful in life.
We cannot stop time or turn it back, every second is precious. That is why it is important to be punctual in life at all times, so you never miss out on opportunities. Moreover, you will also become happier when you get punctual. Once its past there is no turning back, that’s the only reason punctuality is extremely important.
