Punctuality means to be prompt with respect to time. Indeed it is essential if one wants to reach the maximum of his potential. It means doing all one’s work on appointed time and not to waste this precious commodity. It is beneficial both for us and others.
Punctuality is the key to success and is needed in the daily life also. Whether in offices, schools, airports or stations punctuality must be maintained. If we delay a little then the impact is not only on us but it causes inconvenience to other people too. Suppose at home our mother does not maintain punctuality in cooking, then all the members of the family would be late for their respective works. Similarly, if we reach the school late, then the studies of the whole class get disturbed.
If we want to progress in life we must acquire this virtue of punctuality. If we do not respect time, then it too will not respect us. The Britishers are known for their punctuality and hence have been very much successful.
Punctuality must be maintained in all the conditions because it is in our own interest.
