  1. Thank you so much for this episode. I have been chronically late all of my life. I have lost customers and contracts in my business. Told countless lies…

    Your advice and examples on how to account for those “just” moments (because I love to clean and throw in a load of laundry before I leave for the day) were so eye-opening. So now I will be more aware and plan realistically with the intent to arrive early. This advice has probably added years to my life so I can stop panicking through my day. Thank you.

  2. WOW!!! This was so powerful and really resonated with me. I am not one who is typically late, but I am not leaving myself that transition time you described. I arrive to the appointment or meeting and have to jump right in. I never considered leaving myself breathing room or preparing for the transition. This is definitely a GAME CHANGER for me!! I appreciate the story of the mother who arrived early to her son’s game and literally felt that peace she experienced because it helped me to remember the moments when I have taken the first two steps into account which gave me time to feel good, relaxed and feel ready for the appointment or meeting. Thank you!!
