You forgot to remind the hotel receptionist to wake you up. After a night of mulling over what you are going to say in the meeting, you woke up to find out that you have overslept. Once again, you found yourself rushing to another meeting. You arrived twenty minutes late. You felt very uneasy as you entered the conference room. Nine pairs of eyes suddenly focused on you. And you couldve sworn you heard one of them say spät wieder, in a soft disapproving voice. Late again! You winced, knowing the impact of this blunder to your negotiations and silently hoped the situation ahead wouldnt be as grave as you thought it would be.
Sie sind spät! Siete in ritardo! Vous êtes en retard! Você está atrasado! Osoi desu! These are the words that you dont want to hear. Being late does leave a bad impression on people. It makes you look unreliable, irresponsible and inconsiderate. No one would like to make a deal with someone who would give him more stress and problems. Your clients impression of you can make or break your business opportunities.
You should also take into consideration that the embarrassment of being late can ruin your composure. No matter how much you have prepared the night before, you will end up stumbling and stuttering all over the place. Have you ever had this experience before? If so, has it happened a lot of times? If thats the case, what are you waiting for?
Its time for a change!
Maybe you should consider using travel alarms. Without the hassle of having to make phone calls or enduring the receptionists overly pleasant voice, travel alarms can make an early bird out of you. All you need are a couple of batteries as well as regular check ups. Just like cars, travel alarms need to be maintained in order to work efficiently. Of course, because all you need to do is check the power supply, the maintenance isnt as complicated.
Travel alarms come in all shapes and some of them can fit in the palm of your hand. Even better, they come in trendy designs. Some travel alarms even come with a picture frame. So, you dont have to leave home without a picture of your beloved family or your cherished pet. Not only can it keep you from being late, it also keeps your loved ones close no matter where you go. These travel alarms also come in a sturdy case so that you dont have to worry about the bumps and spills of a rough travel. These travel alarms can survive the worst travel conditions and the best feature of these travel alarms is their ability to wake up the heaviest of sleepers and the loudest of snorers. You can easily adjust the volume of the alarm. The loudest setting can wake you up no matter how deep your slumber is.
Never be late again
You shouldnt entrust your career to other people. There is always a chance that the receptionist may forget to give you a wake up call. And, because of her failure, you will end up paying for it. So, put your trust on something that you can trust. A travel alarm clock will never let you down.
