My first week of the project has come to an end. Looking back, I feel that I have gathered a lot of new insights on how to run my everyday life. I have always felt that I am an organized person, which I still think I am. Setting up physical daily schedules is nothing I have done before, but I have always had some idea about what needs to be done.
What I have noticed this week is that I do not have any problems with keeping track to what I have planned, but to be on time to set times like lectures, meetings and work. I tend to be too optimistic about the time available and the time for transportation and thus be about 10 minutes late to my scheduled appointments. Most often, this is something that only affects me, but when it involves other people I know it is awfully rude to steal 10 minutes of their time. Bearing this in mind, I wonder why I always end up being late? Not only is it rude, it also puts the other persons in poor condition and the meeting may get off with a bad start causing inefficiency and unnecessary annoyance.
When something needs to be done and it involves other people, being on time to the meeting is a crucial part of how efficient the work will be.
