Professionalism and time management

Professionalism and Time Management
Professionalism is the practice of engaging an activity, business or an occupation with utmost competency required in the practice. Professionalism ensures that an individual provides quality and efficiency in the outcome of his or her job (Clark & Kasar, 2009). It exhibits the qualities or characteristics of a professional person. Without professionalism, one can never attend to his or her tasks with the required integrity and ethics.
In a conduct of professionalism, one sets specific goals in order to achieve the end-results with precision. To attain significant level of professionalism and results, one should acquire the necessary skills in that profession to have the specialized results. He or she should be competent and carefully practice honesty, integrity, self-regulation driven by emotional intelligence, accountability and maintain the positive self-image (Clark & Kasar, 2009).
Various factors contribute to improper time management. Some could be genuinely inevitable while outright laziness and improper planning define other reasons. Because I am regularly late for my lab sessions, it is vital to come up with effective time management skills to curb this problem (Clark & Kasar, 2009). Having a personal or self-reflection about the problem, and seeking necessary knowledge of the nature of the problem and prospective solutions is a major step to undertake toward establishing a solution.
My problem is often caused by work and long distance to the laboratories. In this case scenario, I will have to come up with a timetable that would administer all my daily undertakings. It must be obeyed unless of an inevitable emergency that is more indispensable. Having mentioned that, I would rationalize my schedule and start my daily tasks earlier that normally in order to account for the long distance that for a long time has hindered me from punctuality.
