Punctuality: n. achieving a promised goal(s) by the end of duration

Don’t be punctual and you are wasting someone’s time and maybe money.

Showing up late for work can get you fired, show up late for a job interview and you probably won’t get the job, and not showing up on time for a date is more than just being inconsiderate or disrespectful but causes unnecessary worry.

Sometimes a traffic jam or an important meeting will delay you and you will be late with an acceptable excuse but being late will frequently cause concern and worry by the one doing the waiting. 

Being on time whenever possible is a major sign of dependability and most humans like dependable humans better than the ones who don’t think that time is important and effectively steal time from you.

Finally doing a promised task on time is something you should always try to do not only in business life but your life at home too. Dependability is a virtue and you will develop a good reputation for being a reliable even trustworthy human.
