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.
