I have always believed in shareholder activism so when I had to go to a meeting, I was ready for a timely discussion. Certain issues were going to be raised that are dear to my heart. I was set to make a plea to the company to listen to us and make a move in the right direction. It was a big day for what I will call company XYZ. For the shareholders, it was all about expressing ethical and moral convictions. We relish an opportunity like this to speak our minds. Who doesn’t want to make the world a better place?
That morning as I dressed, I put on my automatic watch. It keeps me on time and aware. You never need to wind it or replace a battery. A simple movement of the wrist is all it takes. When you are in an important meeting, you just glance at it for the correct time. It has been a lifesaver for years. I seldom arrive late anymore and I know when a meeting should be concluded as scheduled.
I got rid of my battery watch when it failed to give me correct time on a critical day when I had to be in a certain place without fail. The battery was dying with no warning so that I didn’t know I needed one. Sure, it is simple to replace it, but I just didn’t have a clue. Soon an automatic watch appeared on my wrist. People tell me that I made a smart choice. I had hoped to get one as a gift, but since it never happened I took it upon myself to do the research and check prices. Do you know how many watches are on the Internet? Dozens upon dozens. They run no doubt in the thousands. Prices vary and you can get a deal if you are cognizant. This is not a search you want to rush because you may miss wonderful specials and discount opportunities.
Meetings abound in my life and I have to be reliable and punctual. When others depend on you, it is important to come through. Whether you are chairing a meeting or are a regular attendee, people want to proceed on time. A watch can be the answer to tardiness, a trait with which no one wants to be associated.
