I don’t know what it was about this week, but everywhere I turned, I ran into people who just didn’t do what they said they would. And the excuses, just amazing!

  • “My computer was down.” How about making a phone call?
  • “Didn’t have the time.”  What’s the message this sends?
  • “Misplaced my cell phone so I couldn’t call.”  No other phone available?
  • “Tried calling but you didn’t pick up.”  What about leaving a voicemail message?
  • “Too busy.”  Really? Doing what?

The effort you make sends a huge message to the receiver. Nothing more frustrating than counting on someone to do their part only to find out that they haven’t done it. I know life happens and I understand emergencies, but the excuses I heard all boiled down to this – poor planning and following through.

Do what you say you are going to do and if you can’t, at least be considerate enough to let the person know who is relying on you that you can’t deliver.

Be a person who follows through on their obligations!
