    Wink Timekeeping is important to me?

    I heard this in the BBC. I was wondering why isn't it 'Timekeeping is important for me'?

    thanks

    Re: Timekeeping is important to me?

    There's a very slight difference in meaning (for me at least).

    Timekeeping is important for me = I always like to be on time.
    Timekeeping is important to me = I think punctuality is very important and I think everyone should be on time for everything.
