Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-What is your Word Worth?
Do you pay lipservice to people or is your word
Whether in a personal relationship or professional, when we give our word that we will get something done, people expect us to follow through on it. Do you??
Unless you prove to others that you can't be trusted, most people will give you the benefit of the doubt, until you fail to do what you told them you would do in a timely manner.
If you run out of time or some snafu occurs that prevents you from doing what you said you would do in the time element you suggested, then by all means, JUST CALL AND TELL THEM. "Hey, I ran into some problems, is it okay if I get back with you on this tomorrow?" Even a brief e-mail touching bases will let them know that you haven't forgotten about them.
Once you break your word, people have a tendency to maybe give you one more chance, but THAT'S IT. After that, you're like the boy who cried WOLF!--no one will really take you seriously and you lose credibility.
Just my thought for today.
