J is for Just in Time

I have to credit the blogger at Momsanity for this one – I had “just” about run out of ideas for blogging on J when she suggested Just, as in Just a Mom…but I’m amending it to Just in Time – which is what I am since it is 11:00 p.m. and I’m barely going to stay on schedule for Blogging A to Z.

It has made me realize just how often I am Just in Time – for the dentist, for the start of the movie, for the carpool pick-up. I’m not early. I’m not late. I’m Just in Time.

I imagine some might call me disorganized. I say no. No one told the Japanese automakers they were disorganized when they followed JIT inventory principles. They were called EFFICIENT. They were called COST EFFECTIVE. We were told they produced QUALITY output.

So why should I show up even a minute early? In that minute, I can throw in another load of laundry.

  1. I’m one of those perpetually early people. I feel stressed if I’m not at least 10 minutes early to a function or work. I don’t have kiddos to pick up, but if I go somewhere and whoever I’m waiting for isn’t ready I use those few moments to either read or write. On occasion, I may have also thrown in a load of laundry 😉

    • I hate to run late, too. It stresses me out. But getting there just in time feels like an accomplishment some how. It’s only a difference of a few minutes!
