Get to work on time, and get that promotion, with a wooden watch

Being on time is not a personality thing, but a mix of will power and good habits. If you are not currently a punctual person, it doesn’t always have to be that way; you can change it any time you choose. To make that change and build a better reputation at work (and in life in general), you can, or better yet, should start wearing a watch. Read on and find out why a watch, and especially a wooden one, can open the door to promotion at work.

Punctuality at work

Punctuality at work, or in this case the lack of it, can speak much louder than your knowledge or skills. You can choose to ignore this fact or embrace it as a definitive challenge that must be achieved sooner rather than later. You could be stuck in your current role indefinitely if your bosses think that you are not dependable, and tardiness is a classic trait that can give them that very impression. According to Forbes Magazine, punctuality can, “make or break your reputation in the business.” Let´s take a look at some of the potential consequences of tardiness:

  • You are not a dependable employee –This might be the first conclusion that your immediate supervisors come to about you if tardiness is something that has become a regular habit with you. This one simple thing can lead employers to form a much more generalized impression of your performance as an employee and thus be unwilling to consider you for any other positions that require additional responsibilities.

  • You don´t care about your job –This is another instant conclusion your boss is very likely to form about you and your attitude to your job. ‘You arrive late because you either don´t care about your job or you simply dislike it.’ Either of these reasons will very likely close the door on any potential promotions.

  • You don´t respect the rules – This is an epic fail. You might even get some bad reviews at the time of your performance appraisal because of this. If your boss thinks that you don´t respect the rules, they will enter these negative comments into your regular assessments and even onto your permanent file. You don´t want that.

  • You don´t respect your peers – This is another epic fail but on a more personal level. If your peers think that you don´t care about them, they will very likely treat you the same way. Hence, not only will your superiors discount you, but your peers will too. You will very quickly realize how important it is to have allies in the workplace.

The impact of tardiness on self-esteem

Once you are caught up in this loop of tardiness and misconceptions by your managers and peers you will realize you have a growing problem with your own self-esteem. The views and opinions that others have of you is very important. Most people choose to ignore this and claim that tardiness is just a part of their personality, but they are completely wrong. As with all other habits, tardiness can be corrected, or certainly improved, with the aid of some very simple steps and tools. The first and most important ally you can have is a good watch to remind you of the time, all the time.

A wooden watch is the solution

A wooden watch is a solution for tardiness. It is very important to understand that watches were created with this very idea as their key mission in life, and they have been accomplishing it successfully for hundreds of years. Let´s take a look at the benefits of owning a wooden watch to assist with removing tardiness from your working life; and remember, once you remove it from your job, you will most likely make these very same changes in your every-day life, which will have a positive impact on all your relationships.

Wooden watches are great reminders

Wooden watches like the ones manufactured by Seventh can be a simple but awesome reminder of the time on a regular basis, yet free from any additional distractions. Having the time so close to you, on your left wrist, in the form of a beautiful watch will make it effortless to develop that healthy habit of checking it often. This positive habit will make you constantly more aware of the time, and will undoubtedly help to break your bad habit, enabling you to reach your work, meetings, and other important events early instead of late. Wearing a beautiful timepiece like the Seventh THRÁSOS is the perfect way to make checking the time a pleasure while at the same time helping to build a better habit.

Show that you care

By wearing a watch to work, people will begin to notice that you care about what time you arrive and leave. This is a healthy display of respect for peers and supervisors and also a good exercise to avoid the distraction of taking out your phone in meetings or at other important times. So, if you have a tardiness issue and want to rectify it, then starting to wear a watch demonstrates that you are on your way to fixing it, and that speaks volumes.

Care for more than tardiness

If you wear a Seventh timepiece like the ETHOS, or the AZAZ if you are a woman, you will not only  be showing that you care about arriving and leaving work on time, but by choosing a timepiece that is also eco-friendly you are showing that you are not only a person with commitments but also with strong values. This says a lot about you and your personality, you are telling peers and supervisors that you take the time to search for alternatives and make choices that help the world become a better place. With the Seventh timepiece on your wrist, you are showing that you stand for something.

Conclusion

All bad habits can be modified and replaced with good ones. If you have a tardiness issue, don´t think of it as a personality trait that can´t be changed; you are not cursed or anything so damning as that, you just need to work on improving yourself. With this in mind, and because you have fine taste, commitment and values, choosing a wooden timepiece as your guide to punctuality is an absolute winner. Don´t let that promotion slip through your fingers because you can´t keep up with your work and home schedules; buy a Seventh watch and start that journey to success, today!
