And my being on time has not influenced her to be on time. She's still just as late as ever.
I do agree completely, though, with what Steve said about interacting more with others as a way to learn about yourself. I also agree that improving your internal relationships improves your relationships with others.
I'm not sure if anyone has already commented on this...but I haven't read through all the posts yet.
I wanted to ask you...is there any place in your life where you're habitually late? Not in terms of being late to your destination...but, perhaps, late paying a bill. Or, late calling your family. Or, is there something in your life that you always put off till the last minute. Are you ever late going to bed? I'm curious...if you take the time to find that one or two things that you are late with...and work on being more on time in that area...will this maybe affect your friend in a way that she begins to be more punctual???
I think it's a cool experiment to try...lemme know what you think...
