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.
