I used to have a problem with time. I thought everything would take less time than it does. If I had to be somewhere that took 45 minutes to reach by car, I wouldn’t even think about leaving until that 45-minute mark. I’d fail to account for the 5-10 minutes it might take to get my things ready and get out to the car. Thus I’d often be 5-10 minutes late. And if there was unexpected traffic… yikes.
Depending on the situation, the consequences of this problem might be:
- Someone important to me was angry at me for wasting their time.
- I looked bad to my employer.
- I missed a medical appointment and had to reschedule, wasting my own time.
- I was flustered and not fully in control of my thinking when having to make a presentation or talk to a client or answer questions at a job interview. And it usually showed.
