When someone is saying Yes, does it really means no?!
I think we have all experienced it on both sides of the fence.
The silly thing is, you didn’t expect them to do it for you. They volunteered and you said:
“Well, yes, thank you. I do appreciate that!”
And then you hear nothing from them, and then nothing again.
Considering to send a frisky note, asking friendly if the deal is still on.
Waiting more days.
And then, excuses. Couldn’t make it for some reasons.
Well, I know about reasons. They happen to me all the time.
But perhaps, perhaps we ought to think things through, just for a milli-second. “Will I be able to follow this all the way if that is what I am offering?”
If the answer is ‘no’. Please don’t offer!
I know this may happen to all of us. So we need to practice.
Be honest to yourself when looking at the calendar. Is it possible to squeeze one more appointment into your days? Do I have enough energy to prioritize this before something else?
If you are uncertain, tell the person “I will try” and then do your best to see it through!
The person will be so happily surprised!
It’s so much more fun to make people happy than sad!
I wish you a beautiful day!
