If You're Late, You're Losing

America’s leading executive coach, Dan Sullivan, says if you’re 30 seconds late for a meeting you’ve lost at least half your credibility; it doesn’t really matter what the reason might be.

Being on time is simple good manners and shows respect for the person or people with whom you are meeting.

Plan ahead. Be on time.


  1. Hi Bru,

    Awesome article. Thanks for making that available. I've been using your help to build my own POC and will publish the steps in another blog soon.
    You need to query the element definition (follow path: Total Compensation -> Basic -> Element Description), then click on the 'Input Values' button.

    Look at the Pay
    Value input and specifically the check box that says 'User Enterable' If it's checked, then you're OK. If not, then you might have some work to do in order to change that. The system might not allow you to simply check the check box if the element is already in use.

    Appreciate your effort for making such useful blogs and helping the community.
    Thank you,

    1. Salaam,

      Gratitude for putting up this prolific article! You truly make everything a cake walk. Genuinely good stuff, saving time and energy.

      I have been asked to create a formula that uses balance values from the previous 3 payroll periods. The idea is to retrieve the basic pay period balance in each of the 3 previous periods. The sum of these will be used in a workday certification in USA separate calculation. I have used ptd balances but never spanning previous periods.

      Any help greatly appreciated.
      By the way do you have any YouTube videos, would love to watch it. I would like to connect you on LinkedIn, great to have experts like you in my connection (In case, if you don’t have any issues).
      Please keep providing such valuable information.

      Thank you,

  2. Aloha,
