To do or not to do....obligations!
The other day I was talking to a friend who was stressed about her day. It seemed like everything around her was going wrong. On top of everything she had a lunch commitment and a pile of work to catch up on. I would have just cancelled the lunch appointment and tried to do as much catch up work as possible. However, she followed through and some of the day's problems worked themselves out. For some reason this got me to thinking about the way I handle these kinds of days. Although I would have cancelled just to take one less thing off my plate, I realized it would not be the right thing to do. The more I thought about it the more I realized that going to that lunch appointment was more important than I thought, and it helped me come to a few conclusions. Regardless of how stressful your days are or how many different things you have going on, it is important to follow through with your commitments. Being a person people can count on to be on time and be where they are supposed to be is very important. This reliability is what helps build trust which is a strong foundation of all relationships, both personal and business related. eStyleDrew 815-363-9700
