Punctuality

Some years back in a lecture back at B-school, our professor was faced with a class strength of 1/10th of full strength. The 6 odd students who were present had to listen to a lecture on the importance of attendance, punctuality and professionalism.

A few minutes into the lecture, I told him, "Whats the point of telling us this? After all, we are on time here. Those that need to get this message are out and not here."

Lecturing the punctual on punctuality hardly makes a difference does it not? As it happens, this great post has been up for a while at the Idea shop and proves very well as to how or why Punctuality is inefficient.
