Actions / Words (Actions over words). Promises < Deeds.

Folks are good about asking what you need, how they can help, how they can be this or that to you or for you, but it takes a truly special person to not only mean it, but to back those words with actions.

I’ve always been a “doer.” I’ve committed to things and people and remained committed long after I should not have. The beauty of growth, at least for me, is learning and living the power of “no,” “I’d love to, but I can’t right now,” “that sounds like a phenomenal idea or opportunity; I can’t personally help, but I know someone else who might.”

Saying no, no longer, or not right now is much better than over-committing only to then under-perform, professionally and personally.

Wishing you balance, success, and style,
