You can have all the capital and business savvy in the world, but there's one habit that can signal your success or failure: Punctuality.
Seriously. No excuses.
Keep your promises and show up when you say you will. It goes a long way toward building trust, respect and credibility, and you can't build a business without them.
Your time is valuable, and so is everyone else's. People will judge you on whether you keep your commitments.
So get a watch, set an alarm on your phone, do whatever you have to do. Just be on time.
