If you say your going to do it, just do it

29 Jun

Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure “Sarcastic voice” of dealing with smooth talkers.

When you say your going to do something it’s always best to do it, but life happens and it’s not always possible, all you need to do is be honest and own up to the aftermath of not being able to follow through.

However let’s be real, what is straight disrespectful is telling someone your going to do something, and not do it, not saying you can’t do it and just sitting there as if nothing happened. that’s the kind of smooth talker I’m talking about. The ones that talk it up, how great they are, but fail miserably to deliver.
Being able to sell yourself is great, being able to offer a great product is amazing, however when its time to deliver what you say you can deliver is even better. Accountability is key, and I’ve experience the other side of dealing with service providers, and individuals who talk a whole lot of smooth shit to get your business, your attention, your money, but when its time to deliver on what they promised, excuses, and everything else comes into play. Even excuses that has nothing to do with the situation..thats why its an excuse..its just not feasible.

Hold yourself accountable to what you say your going to do, if your offering to help, if your offering a service follow through with it.

Not only is your reputation on the line, but someone is trusting you and believing in you.

I’ve dealt with people, who have come to me out of the blue and offered to do things, and didn’t follow through, like are you serious, why are you wasting your time and my time.

I’ve dealt with service providers who have talked up how great they are, and what they will do, and have failed to deliver. They have provided all the excuses in the book except providing the service they said they would, and I’m pretty forgiving, however what was also bad, is not owning up to what they said, just gliding through the situation as if nothing happened, or the service stops after they received the money.

I believe in people, I enjoy interacting with people, I enjoy finding ways we can help each other, so let’s concentrate on being reliable and trusting individuals, not money seeking and opportunity sucking leeches. We all want to succeed, we all want the best, we are also selfish in nature, and that’s understandable, but lets keep it healthy, just do what it is you say your going to do. and if you go above and beyond that’s icing on the cake.
