Your promises define you.
People remember the promises you make.
When you say you will call someone back, they consider that a promise.
When you tell someone you will do something, that’s a promise.
When you volunteer you are promising to shoulder a part of the load. Not showing up or backing out, is breaking a promise.
Your battling average at keeping your promises determines your value to those around you.
Of course, you don’t have to swing at every pitch; be careful about the promises you make.
But on the other hand, to never swing (not make promises), is a guarantee that you will lose.
Wisdom is making the right promises to the right people at the right time. That’s how you win in life.
The ONE THING for today: The question is not, “Can I?” The question is, “Did you say you would?”
