No more 'To Do' lists #4

No more 'To Do' List item 4 is

DO NOT TURN UP TO MEETINGS ON TIME
This is known as Lombardi Time.
The great Hall of Fame football coach of the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi, invented a strategy that he recommended to his coaches and players.
Lombard Time states "Show up for every important business meeting 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled meeting time."

The idea is to use the 15 minutes to catch your breath, collect your thoughts and preplan what you want to accomplish in the meeting and how you'll go about it.
I hate being late. If others are late I consider it the height of rudeness (can't they be bothered/organised...).

Here's a thought from Jack Carroll's blog... If you look closely (because you arrived early...!), you'll see people arrive at meetings, and this will tell you a lot about the way they lead their lives.
