Work the plan

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Make a plan work the plan. It's easily to get distracted from your plan. I've met people who have all kind of ideas of what you should do; how they will help. I'm learning how to quickly discount these talkers when they don't come through. I need to get to the stage where I can identify them quickly and not even waste time with them.
I am also a person that when I give my word I live up to it. So I'm learning not to give my word to quickly and if I give my word and I can't live up to it - I have to let the person know asap. I agreed to do something for a colleague and when I got the information, my conscience and integrity wouldn't allow me to do it. I spoke to the colleague and there was an acknowledgement that there was an issue. I finally had to say "no I can't do it". This made my colleague very irate. But I said -"How do you feel Ju?". I feel relieved. I could not do it. I also learned that I need to be more careful before I give my word.
Stick to my plan and block out the distractions.

    Definitely I am the type that has learned "let me think about it" is my first response so I have time to think about things.

    I agree!
    I am the child of an alcoholic and grew up to be what is called hyper-responsible.
    I have had to learn to say no and to even back out or even not (GASP!) do something I said I would.

    Hard lesson for me to learn too. Now I say "let me think about it"... or maybe "I'm committed to other stuff right now." Dr. Phil says,"don't feel guilty... they're users and will just go ask the next one on their list." emoticon
