Follow up question:-
- In what kinds of situations, people should arrive early?
I believe they should arrive early when they have to catch a flight or train because sometimes people get stuck in traffic, especially in metro cities. Owing to the traffic, they can miss their flight.
- When do you think people should arrive on time?
It really depends on the place where you have to go. For example, if you go for a movie, it would be excellent to reach on time because they play advertisements for 5-10 minutes before the starting of a show.
- Why do people need to be on time?
Well, time is money. One should understand the value of punctuality. By arriving five minutes late, you would have stolen something of value from the other person, which is not a great way to start any serious business meeting.
- Do you think doing nothing means a waste of time?
No, I don’t think it is a waste of time. Sometimes we merely need peace of mind and it can be obtained by doing nothing. Moreover, we generate many unique ideas when we are in relax mode.
- Do you think it is important to be punctual?
Unquestionably, every single person needs to be punctual. It depicts how serious that person about his work or studies. No one has the right to waste the time of others by arriving late. If you can’t be on time, you should notify the other in advance.

yes, I love to be on time. I always reach my workplace on time. Even today I arrived here at the IELTS examination centre on time because it is my habit and it is a good one.
