Rule No. 171
Cleanliness may be next to Godliness but promptness is a habit that is just as important. Be on time. Not only be on time but be prepared when you arrive. There is a reason the saying “Time is money” has lasted as long as it has.
I saw this rule on a tumblr a little while back and thought it was so true. Be sure to check out some of her other little tidbits here!
I cannot live without a watch. Growing up in a family with 3 other girls (2 sisters and my mom) being on time was always a bit of a struggle, and now it is one of the things I am overly obsessive about. I am constantly checking my watch and cell phone and am careful to allot enough time to drive and arrive. This being said... I have on many occasions had to sit in my car and wait because I was outrageously early, whoops! I try to have all of my clocks be a couple of minutes fast but there was a time in the year where my computer was 10 minutes fast! When a friend glanced at it, she left my room in a panic thinking she was late for class only to come in a minute later after checking her clock to thank me for not telling her my clock was so fast... sorry!
During the school year I wear a fossil watch. I love the slightly larger size and the gems in the black face make it unique without being distracting or too glitzy. I find I can wear it for a night out or even to the barn. I am not sure they even make it anymore... but I like this one they currently have...
For the summer I decided I wanted to try something a little different. I needed a watch for work so I headed to Target (guilty obsession) to see what they had. After spending a ridiculous amount of time debating my options I came home with this one....
After two weeks with it I still love it! The white is a nice summery touch and the face is easy to read. I know the plastic watches are very in this season and you can get a variety of colors at a variety of prices.
Do you wear a watch? What style do you prefer?
