3. Arrive on time. If punctuality doesn’t come naturally, give yourself an additional 10 minute “emergency gap” to allow for last-minute activities. Create a playlist for your morning routine that is exactly as long as you have to get ready – it’s a fun way to keep yourself on track. But if you know you’re going to be late ahead of time, communicate this to your friends, coworkers, or host through a quick, apologetic call.
6. Improve your communicative style. Listen to others, and pay attention to your communication habits. If you tend to dominate conversation, strive to ask your partner questions about themselves. If you find making small talk difficult, challenge yourself to hold quick chats with strangers during your day-to-day life.
