Around this time of year I look back on how things went and ask myself what needs improvement.  That's another way of saying I am going to make a New Year's Resolution.  For 2019, I'm going to try to be on time more often.

I hate to admit it but I'm one of those annoying people who's usually running late.  I apologize to anyone I've kept waiting!   I've always struggled with being on time but I must say that this Lyme Disease has made it worse.  That is, my body has been moving slower than usual.  It takes me longer to get ready.  Longer to pack a bag.  Longer to close up the house.  Yet my brain is still setting appointments and viewing the calendar as it always does.  I try to cram in too much in too short a time period.  I don't allow for traffic or road closures.  In recent months I've missed appointments and have been way later for things than I should have been.

They say the first step in getting help is acknowledging the problem so here I am admitting I have a problem with chronic lateness.

Let's hear some advice from those of you who are always on-time.  What tips can you share to help me (and any other readers and listeners) be more prompt?
