However well organised I’m it sometimes gets late to reach my destination due to several external and internal factors. One such time when I was late in an appointment with my investors was a frustrating experience for me.

Since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, I had a burning desire to set up my own business. Therefore, when I was a senior student, to be given financial support to run my start-up, I had a pivotal date with numerous investors. I highly appreciated that appointment; therefore, I had worked against the clock and buried myself in a mountain of workload. I had to burn the midnight oil to complete my project, which would be shown to investors. When the day came, I felt dead tired. You know, I had to make every effort to get up, but it was still late 20 minutes when I left my home. Unfortunately, the road suffered from intensive traffic congestion, which is a common scenario in my city. I failed to use different kinds of transport from bus to taxi to escape this crowd. Finally, I reached the location 1 hour later than my scheduled time. While the investors showed their sense of anger, I experienced the feeling of panic, and I just presented my project with half a heart.

I was rejected, and I felt extremely disappointed. That was a painful experience for me, and since then, I’ve tried my best not to be late for any appointments ever again.
