>Pet Peeve Alert: People that don’t do what they “say” they are going to do. I know what your thinking……”I can’t stand that as well.” No one likes someone that’s a flake (you know someone you can’t really count on what they say they are going to do.) Here is a personal confession though, I didn’t learn this lesson until about 7 years ago. I was so motivated by pleasing people that I couldn’t say “no” and would spread myself out too thin. I’d over commit myself and could not meet deadlines. People would get frustrated and I would just give excuses. I had to learn to set real expectations. Allow yourself some wiggle room. Don’t paint yourself into a corner. It’s much better to say no upfront if you can’t do it then to say yes and disappoint someone after the fact. Bottom Line: Under Promise and Over deliver.
