YOUR WORD- IT’S ALL YOU HAVE.
We are not perfect, but there is one character trait that you should hold dearly… honoring your word.
Its very liberating knowing we have complete power in this area of committing to our word.
If you want people to respect you, follow you, help you, buy from you, like you… you have to be committed to YOUR WORD. Do what you say, on time, and in full… or don’t say it at all.
Little things, even being 5 minutes late for a meeting… diminishes the trust people have in you. When you miss a deadline or forget to get back to that person that asked for your help… that trust is gone.
THE MOST IMPORTANT CURRENCY AT DREXEL IS THE AMOUNT OF YOUR TRUST.
If you struggle with this, I encourage you to start the day with one task you will promise to yourself to complete on time and in full that day.
First is committing to yourself and then your word to others.
I challenge you to pay closer attention to the things you say you will do and make every effort to follow through with them with a time to have it completed.
How you do anything, is how you do everything.
