So, I have a very bad habit of being late to pretty much everything. :blush: Usually it's only 4-5 minutes late, but sometimes it's more like 15-20 minutes, or more. Even when I lived at home I was late for school about half the time, I've been late for school and job interviews, as well as many other things. It feels like I'm always in a rush to get through the door barely on time. Most of this happens in the morning, and I admit I am just not a morning person, I hope to eventually find a job where I can wake up late, even if I have to get off work late too.
However, as of now, in the middle of medical training, obviously waking up early and being on time is important. Yes, I know people will say "but I have to wait 15-20 minutes to see my doctor, I thought that was okay for doctors to be late!" Well, it may be true for doctors in practice, but not in training.
I just don't know what to do. I've tried setting multiple alarms, but I keep thinking "oh I'll just snooze another couple of minutes". And sometimes I'm late not because I was sleeping, but because I was working on a task and I kept thinking "well I'll just write one more page", or I'll go out to lunch, do some window shopping, which turns into real shopping, and I wind up late because of that.
Can anyone give me advice? Other than, move to Italy (or some other country where lateness is socially acceptable)?
