Planning Ahead Gets You to Work on Time  

The secret to getting to work on time is planning. Mary Davis is a single mother. She works as a receptionist at a Health Center. Mary is always on time for work and likes to be early.

Each night, Mary plans ahead and prepares for the next day. When she is prepared for the next day, it is easier to get to work on time.

Every night Mary has her children lay out their school clothes for the next day. She also lays out her work clothes. Mary also makes lunches for the next day.

Before she goes to bed, she sets the table for breakfast and plans what she is making for breakfast to save time in the morning.

In the morning, she gets up before her children. She gets dressed and makes breakfast. The children wake up easier when Mom is ready for the day.

Mary gets her children on the school bus and then drives to work. Mary always plans to be at work fifteen minutes early. Mary knows that getting to work early makes a good impression on your boss. 

Mary has learned that planning makes it easier for her to get to work on time.
