espect for Time!
Now I realise that this is an age old discussion within the work place, within relationships, within individual encounters in social interactions and at home.
Yet, I find it imperative to bring it up again. Respect for time is not something that we as adults want to be chatting about, discussing and dissecting in a time when it has been spoken about and killed as a subject.
But I find that as we proceed with caution, trepidation and much fear into a world filled with diverse cultures within the workplace – time management, puntuality and a lack of respect for people’s time, has become really prevalent in a seriously negative way.
People seem to love the new excuse of “this is my culture”, that is why I am late, do not arrive or will even give you the courtesy of knowing that I am not attending a meeting or function.
When did we as human beings become so disrespectful that we believe that we can use our beautiful cultures and traditions as an excuse for our disgusting behaviour. There are millions of people who have similiar if not the same cultures who do not use their inability to respect time, as an excuse.
