One Way to Put a Stop to Your Perpetual Lateness

How many times have you resolved to become someone who's known for her punctuality, instead of her perpetual lateness? If those mini Monday or monthly resolutions haven't resulted in a new, prompt you, then maybe you need to motivate yourself differently.

Money magazine writer Tyler Cowen suggests that penalties might be more effective than rewards if lateness is one of your little flaws. Cowen thinks it's best to invite someone in on your penalty plan to keep your on-time makeover in check, like telling your friend/partner/spouse that you'll do dishes for the next month if you fall off track.

Would you benefit from the penalty system?
