One of the keys to the successes in my life is the ability to confidently state that I can do something and then follow through with it. I simply say what I can do and then do it – there are no “ifs, ands or buts” about it.
I follow through with commitments because I want people to see that my word is genuine.
It is a wonderful feeling to know that others can depend on me. They count on me to keep my promises and so I do.
One thing that helps me keep my commitments is my effective time management. I keep an accurate schedule and leave plenty of room for necessary changes.
When I see that my time may be too rushed in trying to complete a task for someone, I refrain from committing to it.
My friends, family, and work associates respect me for my honesty.
I am respecting them when I am honest from the outset, and they are grateful for it. They also know that when I do commit to something, it is for real and they can count on it being done.
Today, I plan to take time to ensure my planner is accurate in the listings for my upcoming schedule, since I depend on it so heavily when deciding if I can commit to something. With an accurate schedule, I can make accurate commitments and follow through on them every time.
- Do I follow through with my commitments?
- How important is it to me to be dependable?
- How do I feel when others follow through on a commitment to me? How do I feel when they don’t follow through?
