I have been trying to put together a series of blogs and videos of the things that I practice daily. We all need reminders and to get back on track sometimes right? Today I wanted to talk about our actions and follow through. Say what you DO and DO what you say….
Sounds a lot like Say what you mean and mean what you say. But this DOING what you say means to follow through and that means A LOT! It has become one of my daily practices.
It’s pretty simple. If you say you are going to do something YOU DO IT. Because if you don’t then you are being incongruent with your promises and will lose reliability. If people can’t count on you, you lose TRUST. And you never want to lose Trust.
People want to trust, but they don’t trust people that have no action to back up their words. If there is no trust there is no relationship. You see where I am going with this? It’s the LIKE, KNOW, TRUST factor.
It’s so important to make sure you deliver on what you say you will do! One way to do this is to take a look at your commitments daily. If you find you are overcommitted, step back. I have to do this all the time. I always have a pretty heavy schedule, but if things have to be moved around…I do it. If I commit…I do it.
Build that trust and build the stronger relationships!
DO what you say, and say what you DO!!
Make it a GREAT DAY:)))
