When you start acting, you will begin to receive feedback about the correctness of your actions. You will get the data, advice, assistance, advice, guidance, and even criticism that will help you to constantly adjust and move forward while continuing to strengthen the knowledge, skills, attitudes and relationships. But to get feedback before the beginning, then you must be willing to respond the feedback.

There are two kinds of feedback that you may receive – negative and positive. We tend to prefer the positive – that is, results, money, praise, raise, promotion, customer satisfaction, appreciation, happiness, inner peace, familiarity, and pleasure. That feels better. It tells us that we are in the right direction, that we are doing the right thing.

We tend not to like negative feedback – there is no result, no money, criticism, bad judgments, do not get a raise or promotion, grievances, unhappiness, inner conflict, loneliness, misery. Even so, the negative feedback has the advantage as great as the positive feedback. It tells us that we have been off track, heading in the wrong direction, and doing something wrong. It is also valuable information.

Negative feedback is very valuable, so we need to change our perception of this negative feedback. We can said as “opportunities for improvement”. With attention to any negative feedback, you can fix what goes wrong so that you can become a better person.

Thus, it will be easier to figure out what must be changed. There are many reasons that cause someone is too late. Here are some of the most common factors:

Sleep late
If you get too tired in the morning because it was sleep late nights, it’s good to go to bed early. Many people do not get enough sleep. In fact, lack of sleep can suck the happiness and your health. Enough sleep is really important for everyone.

Work overtime
Apparently, this is one of the common causes of delay. If you try to reply to an e-mail again, or make one more homework before going to bed, you’ll be tempted to finish other jobs so late to bed.

Itineraries
Never underestimate the time you need to reach the workplace. You might think it only takes one hour to travel to the office. In fact, if calculated with a traffic jam, schedule an indeterminate public transportation, vehicles breaking down or a flat tire and other unforeseen events, travel time increases automatically.

Finding lost objects
Keys, wallet, phone or glasses stuck somewhere when you want to go to the office, can make the trip be delayed until you arrive too late. To fix this, define a special place to store important items you need. For example, in a drawer or cabinet. Restore the objects fit into place each time after
used.
