Strategies That Will Position You to Excel as an Immigrant #45 Watch Out for Daylight Saving

“I’ve lived on the equator all my life and we never had to change clocks. Now they’re telling me time goes forward an hour after midnight? What is this, Narnia?” ― Joyce Rachelle

Some immigrants come from countries without time zones, and the clock is not moved back and forth at specific times during the year. This can be a source of embarrassment, confusion, and missed opportunities.

If you are from a country where the clock is set in stone, you may be in for a rude awakening. The time in the United States, except in the state of Arizona, is not set in stone. This implies that in the fall, the clocks are moved back one hour, and in the spring, the clocks are moved one hour ahead. The best way to remember it is, “in fall, you fall backward and in spring you spring forward.”
