    Thanks, Cagey!
    What would be your suggestion to make it more idiomatic?
    Could it be: "Leave earlier in order to never be in a hurry and always be in time!"?
    Moonlight, if you want to be idiomatic, you'll have to ignore Google. As Cagey said, it's grammatically correct, but it is not idiomatic.

    I would say: Leave earlier so you don't have to rush and you'll always be on time.

    Of course, we know that leaving earlier is no guarantee that we won't have to rush and that we will arrive on time, but it is good advice! :D
