Time is life. Many Hispanics find it difficult to adjust to the American-scheduled life. We must understand that where they come from-time as we know it-is not important. A man's life is not crowded with a hundred-and-one things to do. Usually one major event per day is planned and all of life surrounds it. The Hispanic nature is not to follow the clock.
To the Anglo "time is money" and the clock "runs," but to the Hispanic "time is life" and the clock walks. However, in the American business world they, realize the importance of following the clock and adjust their habits to keep a place in the work force. Although Hispanics are very energetic they are never in a hurry.
