I know this sounds old fashioned, but I think it’s the truth. People aren’t going to rely on you if they feel like you can’t be trusted. And this doesn’t just mean that they think you’re a big fat liar. It can also mean that you’re a big fat flake-r.
I fall into the latter category—I’m terrible about saying that I’ll do something and not following through. But I’m trying to get better. In fact, maybe that’s a goal for this year. Yes. It is.
Slight digression, but the point is do what you say you will and mean what you say.
