Dear Experts, I've been late for work repeatedly. My boss sat me down last week and said if I'm late again, I'll be fired. Since then, I've been a total wreck. I can't handle the pressure of being there at exactly 8:30am every day. I need this job, but the anxiety I'm feeling is really getting to me. Any suggestions? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#322 GET UP EARLIER! Use several alarm clocks if req. Anxiety is self-induced & correctable w/self-discipline.

(@juliaerickson) Q#322 Being on time means showing up 4 ur life, on life's terms. If alarms don't work, ask friend 2 call u. (@juliaerickson) Q#322 Try pretending that work starts at 8:00am. Then, if you are 15 mins late, you are still technically 15 mins early. (@gradversity) Q#322 It is ur responsibility to b at work on time. Try rising 1/2 hour earlier so you can leave earlier and be on time. (@DebraWheatman) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I am reminded how grateful I am, not only for the people around me but that I have the opportunity to run my own business. One of the benefits of running a small business is that it gives me the ability to donate to causes that matter to me, and find ways to help build community, and show others the benefits of charitable giving.
