How to avoid feeling rushed

Today’s tip: Time out your morning routine.

In her fun (and foul-mouthed) No F*cks Given podcast, Sarah Knight offers a solution to chronic lateness that’s shockingly simple: 1) Identify when you are most prone to lateness and rushing—for most people, this is the morning. 2) Time how long it takes you to do all the things (in the morning, maybe this includes showering, making coffee, and then either commuting or shuffling over to your couch). 3) Time it again the next day, and the next.

Voila, now you know how much time you really, actually need. Allow yourself that much time, and you’ll never again have to say, “Sorry to be late to this Zoom call.”
