“I’m finally ready, let’s talk.” Sounds good, until the next day when the same person says “well, it will have to wait, something came up.”
If I could change one thing universally it would be that people make time for what’s important and put everything else off, instead of the other way around.
The only way to reach any goal is to focus on it to the exclusion of other things that come up. Remember ” No” is a complete sentence. If you must, say “no, thank you.” But say “no.”
