Sometimes, it doesn't matter how early you set your alarm, or how prepared you think you are, the universe conspires against you to make you late. It only takes a split second to miss your train, or bus, or tube and often that will make the difference as to whether you make your meeting, or gets the children to school on time, or make your first pilot-training session... Who knows right?
So how do you save time?
1. Reduce the travelling. By this I mean, the numerous times you end up charging backwards and forwards through your apartment, or up and down the stairs of your house to fetch lippy, your purse, your phone. It sounds obvious but have a place for everything that makes sense and always put things back where they live.
2. Pack your handbag the night before. It's like being back at school isn't it? But it works. If you mess about swoping handbags around in a morning you will be a) late and b) annoyed you left something in the other bag.
