Are we reliable in our daily life, in your business, at work, with our family, and friends? This is a quality that I like seeing in people around me. Of course, it is the quality that I practice every day before asking somebody to do so.

Frequently, in my environment especially in my business, or in a group, and friends I noticed that people are not always responsible.


With our friends and family.

I found that people around us had a difficult time to keep their words. For instance, a friend of mine told me that she would email me in 2 days but still be waiting for 3 weeks!!!! What happened?

She thought that I knew that she was sick and somebody would tell me. As far as I know, I am not reading people’s mind, at least not yet! It is not so hard to call or email a short message so that we know.

At work and Business.

It is the same thing. Be precise on what you say that you are going to do. If you are receiving an important email It is imperative that you need to answer within 72 hrs or as soon ASAP. In my opinion, each IMPORTANT message has to be answered, it shows the respect and integrity for the person, however, not all emails are crucial look at your priorities in your day.

Also, if I have a business partner that I work with, I want him or her to be responsible for their actions, meaning that if you have to give a report in 3 days, do what you have said you would do. However, If you cannot make it on time, call or email to let the person know so that people are aware of what’s going on.

In conclusion, knowing ourselves, our priorities, and managing our time can help us in being reliable for what we say. In addition, what we need is being accountable for ourselves, consistent, respectful of others, and showing our integrity.

Please, let me know if you have any questions!  Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!
