“Don't ever promise more than you can deliver,
but always deliver more than you promise.”
Now I really take that to heart. Oftentimes we can over-extend ourselves in what we promise to others and then find out at the end of the day that we can't keep the promise. Let me break that down a bit. If you are notoriously late for ALL your meetings, don't promise to be on time! People will respect you more when they know that they can count on you to do what you say. It's usually the little things that can cause huge problems.
Today, you may find yourself using the words, "I promise..." When you do, and before you finish that sentence, think about what the doctor ordered here and make certain you can deliver on that promise. And then go the extra mile and bring more! Always deliver more than you promise!
