Few People TAKE ACTION in the Information Marketing Field
About a month I was contacted by someone who made some pretty big claims about his background and future actions. I was skeptical. I’ve been in the info products business for a long time. I’ve seen people make a lot of OUTRAGEOUS claims. Most of them NEVER came to pass.
I was hoping I would be surprised. I wasn’t. I was disappointed.
The sad truth is that VERY few people DO what they SAY they will do.
So, the guy I mentioned finally got in touch. He sent me an email as if NOTHING had happened. As if I would have just forgotten the amount of time that had passed since he made all of these grandiose promises.
The email contained a list of reasons WHY he hadn’t been in touch. For all I know some of them were real and even valid. I don’t know what it is about people. Did this guy expect me to just forget that a month had gone by and he promised to contact me “SHORTLY” the last time we were in touch?
IF he had only contacted me a few days after we had first met and told me of the “problems” he then mentioned in the email I just got, I would have been much more understanding. I would have understood WHY there had been such a big gap between the time he SAID he would contact me and the time he DID.
The problem is that he did not. So, I MUST assume this guy is full of s**t!
I only have a limited amount of time to spend on business and personal projects. I don’t want to be distracted by people who make promises they don’t keep.
Are you one of these people? I hope not. IF you ARE, this is the wrong blog for you to be reading.
I don’t like to spend time, energy and money on people who don’t DO WHAT THEY SAY. Is this too much to ask? Apparently it IS for some people. For these people, I have NO time. I would hope you don’t give them your time either.
Don’t encourage this type of behavior!
I refuse to spend time with people who don’t or won’t do what they say they will do. It’s both draining and a waste of time.
For God’s sake: DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU’LL DO!
