Being a person who's always running late, I appreciate the heck out of these scientific findings...
Are you always late for everything?
Congratulations! You are going to live longer -- and be more successful -- than all those on-time people!
A study found that people who are chronically late have more optimistic personality traits. And according to research out of Harvard, that optimistic outlook has a major impact on overall health and life expectancy.
Not only that, but most people who are always late tend to be late because they have unrealistic expectations about what they can get done in a limited amount of time. That means they are passionate about the activity they are doing. (This entire paragraph describes me perfectly.)
Passion breeds success, the study found that being late can lead to more success than being punctual.
