The concept of making every effort to arrive at a location ahead of the appointed time, with the expectation of having to wait upon arrival. The purpose behind the concept is that it builds a large amount of time into one's schedule, therefore accounting for unexpected occurrences.
When we went to the airport for our vacation, we followed the "hurry up and wait" philosophy, arriving several hours prior to our flight.
