A good professional will always be on time and respect the designated time for lunch breaks.
Regardless of the shift you cover, make sure you:
➜ Leave home with more than enough time to get to work, take into account the time you take to commute.
➜ Set your watch 5 to 10 minutes later, so you trick your brain into believing you might be running late.
➜ Set a reminder on your mobile calendar.
➜ Respect your sleep routine.
Arriving earlier so as to talk to the guard you are relieving for a brief report of their shift is a bonus! That increases your chances of success and of being an outstanding professional.
