The lack of follow-through on commitments is a sure way to lose respect, damage your reputation, and disappoint yourself and others
Sometimes it can seem impossible to follow through, but if you don't your integrity will be questioned, and you will feel disappointed in yourself for not sticking to your promises.
Below are some ways you can increase your ability to keep your commitment:
1. Don't over schedule
Learn the art of saying no as well as yes. Take a moment when a new opportunity comes your way to look at your schedule, your desire, and whether taking on this new project is realistic for you. Saying no now is preferable and much more honorable, than taking on something you do not have time for, then having to back out later.
