Keep your promise

18 03 2009

This seems obvious but why is it so important? And why tend people to make promises they can’t keep? Let’s take a look at it and I hope it will help you and me to make sure we really keep our given promises.

What happens when we make a promise?
We give a person hope and expectation and the other person starts to look forward to the promise.

Why do some people make promises they can’t keep?
The why is direct connected to what happens; it is a great feeling when someone is happy about the promise you made, they get excited and build expectations and starts looking forward to it.
This is short time rewards.

Every time you break a promise you loose trust and respect.

The long time reward is trust and respect, to build that you need to keep your promises.

Note! A lot of people likes to look forward to things so don’t stop making promises, just take it very seriously.

Please help me on this one by make sure you do your best to keep your promises and help me and others with feedback when we don’t keep them.

Thank you Stephen R. Covey for the book:
7 habits of highly effective people
