“I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times, just to be sure.”
Remember, if it is repeatable, once you do it, you will be expected to do it again.
Here’s the trajectory:
- First, you are appreciated for what you do.
- Second, you are expected to do what you do.
- Third, you are taken for granted for what you do.
- Fourth, people forget that it is even you doing it.
Plan on this upfront and it will really cut down on dissatisfaction, bitterness and resentment.
The ONE THING for today: Taking action is like giving a promise. And people seldom celebrate promises being kept, they expect promises to be kept. Be okay with that and you will get a lot done.
