    I was watching a “Dr. Phil Show” few years ago that touched on this topic (sorry, unable to remember many details: date, topic of that specific show, etc.) Dr. Phil was questioning on tardiness a women of 30ish. After some more questions, Dr. Phil confronts her, after questioning her more, then he demonstrated that she was arrogant and selfish. If you will ponder on this (meditate with the Word), you will see that Dr. Phil is right; and, dig that evil preposition out of your life now before it becomes something unmanageable.

    Interesting. I see nothing arrogant or selfish in being tardy, especially if it is unintentional. If anything, I would have said that the problem is self-deprecation, resulting from unnecessary guilt. As the parent of small children, I think you will find people to be more charitable than you might imagine. Yet, there is nothing wrong with a penitent heart that desires to do better. Possessing such a heart, I commend you, brother.

    My family dealt with tardiness, too, for a time. Like you, tardiness makes me feel like I’m failing somewhere. Tardiness is the biggest cause of stress in my life.

    After months of trying to solve our tardy problem, I believe the solution was this: my wife and I wake up 30 minutes earlier. If we are still tardy, we wake up even 30 minutes earlier. We found that it was much easier to be on time by going from extremely early to on-time. It was too hard for us to go from late to on-time.

    This may sound like an abomination for not being morning people (I’m not a morning person, but my wife is), but I was more concerned about being on-time than I was letting my hatred of mornings be an excuse.
