September 5th – Be Late For Something Day

Today is Be Late For Something Day! Have a lie in (good chance you’re already up if you’re reading this, in which case go back to bed)… Arrive in to work at lunchtime… Rock up 30 minutes late for that meeting you can barley be arsed to go to anyway…


Modern living and society puts incredible pressures on us to meet challenging deadlines, observe rules and regulations, and to regulate our lives by tight schedules. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just stop for a little bit and see what happens?

Be Late For Something Day encourages you to take a step back from your schedule and intentionally be late for something – remember that things can go on without you, and maybe it’s not all quite as important as you thought; after all, you need some ‘me time’!

I certainly won’t be stepping foot in the office before midday anyway…
