I had a real bad habit that would never go away. When I was young, I would always go to school late. It was embarrassing when I walked in to classroom late. I promised myself, thousand times, that I would go to school on time (early), but I was never able to fix my problem.
Now that I'm grown up, I've been going to work late. I have a super nice new job now. But, again, I quickly became the guy who always comes to work late.
Of course I felt horrible when I arrived at work late every single morning. And I promised myself I would go to work early. But, I would always go to work late for one reason or another.
I thought this old habit would never die. And this could ultimately damage my career. I look bad. It takes certain kind of people to go to work late consistantly, and I was one of them.
This year (2014), as a new year's resolution, I decided to give it one more try. I wanted to be the first person to arrive at my department. (FYI: There are 7 of us at my department, and 600 people in the campus.)
Today is January 27, 2014. So far, except for 1-2 days, I've been the first one to arrive at work. Surprisingly, it's been quite easy to go to work early. I guess I am getting old and taking my job seriously. I would like to be known as the guy who always comes to work early. I feel positive about this.
I would like to improve myself and become a better person.
Happy new year.
