Punctuality, as Google rightly states, is “the fact or quality of being on time.” Thus, by extension, punctuality would also involve not being late.
Punctuality is a trait every one of us here must aim to acquire. Being punctual creates a respectable image of ourselves to the outside world. Not being late shows that we are responsible and take the given work seriously. It helps build a positive image of us thus. Again, completing tasks punctually is also a burden off our backs and will help us breathe a little easier!
“Better three hours too soon than a minute too late,” said Shakespeare.
