This is the first micropost. Microposts will be posts that are to long for Twitter, to short for a full post, and to important for Facebook :D
Today somebody said to me “Thank you for being on time”. I was like 2 minutes late but the clock in my car is ahead of time, so I was probably just on the dot.
But this got me thinking. We live in a fast-paced world and many people struggle to be on time. I think often timeliness is expected, although it should not be.
10-20 years ago, when mobile phones time management was more resilient, now it is more agile. But maybe too agile. Earlier you used to think about what could go wrong and what to do then, nowadays you simply say “I’ll call you.”
At University there is “cum tempore”; what’s the equivalent for everyday life?
But let’s keep it short.
Bottom line: I’ll try to appreciate timeliness more instead of expecting it.
