Keep your first promise

As you become more successful, your profile rises. 

As your profile rises, you get more invitations. More opportunities.

And suddenly you’re in dilemmas where you’ve committed to one thing, but a better thing has come along and you don’t know what to do.

There’s only one thing to do.

Keep your first promise. 


You’ve booked lunch with your mom-in-law for Saturday, and then suddenly you get an invite to meet Desmond Tutu on the same slot. 

If you don’t have a hard rule, you’ll drop your mom-in-law and chase the more “interesting” invitation.

That is a slippery road.

That way lies upset people and stress.

Just stick to a hard rule.

Keep your first promise.
