Great Article on Tardiness from Sunday’s NYT

Posting about chronic tardiness is a slight deviation from our standard topic, sleep, but nevertheless we suspect that this may be a topic that is important to many of our readers. The New York Times published a great article by Phyllis Korkki on Sunday, “For the Chronically Late, It’s Not a Power Trip.”

As the title implies, the article suggests that, contrary to popular belief, many people who are frequently tardy are not doing so because it makes them feel important, they are doing so because that’s their nature. The article goes on to discuss the different types of people who are chronically tardy, the effects of tardiness on one’s career, and offers several tips to help combat chronic tardiness:

  • HAVE A STRATEGY
  • RELEARN HOW TO TELL TIME
  • NEVER PLAN TO BE ON TIME
  • WELCOME THE WAIT

(RTFA for specifics on implementing these strategies in your life)
