Walking Out the Door
Finally, a deceptively simple tip from Morgenstern: Walk out the door on
time. She says many people try to avoid downtime by "shoving in one more
thing" just before they need to leave. She calls this the
"one-more-task syndrome" and says it's a major obstacle to being on
time. "If you really want to beat this, the minute you think of squeezing
in one more thing before you leave, just don't do it. Stop yourself in your
tracks, grab your bag and walk out the door."
