Today I would like to share the importance of punctuality in our life. It is considered as one of the noble qualities which need to be possessed by everyone. It is the habit of doing things on time. There is a proverb that says, “A stitch in time saves nine.” It means that doing things on time prevents us from unnecessary problems. Punctuality gives discipline in our life. A disciplined person always gets appreciation and social acceptance. Punctuality removes laziness from us but it needs certain sacrifices.
There is another proverb which says “Time and tide waits for no man”. Certain things should be done at the appropriate time. It may be the golden time to do it. Later we will not get the chance and that may lead to some future worries. Certain tasks we can complete very easily when the time is favourable. As human nature, we may postpone certain things but it may be very difficult to do the same things when the time is unfavourable. Time does not wait for anyone. We have to wait for it. When the time is favourable we must act promptly.
We all should be punctual in our everyday life. Every student should practice a habit of punctuality. We can easily understand that punctuality is the basic quality of a person to be having a good personality. People who have become great in their lives are very punctual. Punctuality is the best policy for success. It will help us to achieve our goal. So be punctual in our life and it should be our motto.
