When someone is late or tells you they do not have enough time, it is almost always their way of telling you (consciously or unconsciously) that there are other things more important than you in their lives.
And that’s okay, I’m sure you understand that you are not the center of the universe.
But it is also okay for you to not compromise your own top priorities trying to accommodate people who do not care as much as you do about the task at hand.
The ONE THING for today: One of the realities of life is learning to live with people who are late or no-shows. But it is also a reality that you can go on with your life without them.
