Money wasn't so important to me ever (no I am NOT rich), they cut my salary on my late arrival and I don't care.
My team lead doesn't grumble on my late arrival.
The deadlines here are flexible as compared to other companies.
The problem is that I waste time in talking to myself at home rather than going to office on time.
I should start at 7:30, but instead I start at 11:30 from home. There isn't anyone at my home who could push me.
I feel guilty of having a horribly disorganized life.
How to force myself to reach office on time?
If you really want to change, you may need to work on:
- Knowing why it is important to be on time (intellectual)
- Understanding how to be on time (practical)
- Feeling it is important to be on time (emotional)
- Making it easy for yourself to be on time (environmental)
One of the reasons you have not changed already is that the sanctions imposed by your employer (cut in income) don't have a motivating effect on you, and that's because money really isn't that important to you.
So, what is important to you, and how could that be used to get yourself motivated?
There are several areas you mention in your question: your passion for music videos, the opinion of your team lead and the job itself. So, here are a few suggestions that focus on these areas:
- Is there a way you could listen to music / watch videos on the way to work rather than at home?
- Is there a way to prevent yourself from watching at home? For example, put the TV in a cupboard or get your internet connection turned off?
- Would you be interested in going to live concerts? Do you need to earn more to achieve that?
- Is there anyone at work who shares your passion?
- With your manager's agreement, could you watch music videos for a while once you reach your workplace? Someone could remind you to stop once you've reached a certain time limit.
- Could you get a job working for a company that produces music videos?
- How does your team leader actually feel about your lateness? What about your other colleagues? Just because they don't complain, that doesn't mean they are happy. Have you asked?
- What is it about you that makes you so valuable to your employer that they're prepared to put up with your lateness? Can you share that with others?
- Are there things you can do to build up more of a rapport with your workmates?
- What parts of the job do you find interesting? Could you agree with your manager to do more of the interesting stuff and less of the stuff you're less bothered about?
- Who benefits from the work you do? How does that motivate you?
- Could you work later to make up the time?
- What work-based goals do you have? How are you trying to better yourself professionally?
- Can you work from home?
- Can you watch music videos and work at the same time?
