The Gap Between Saying and Doing

I hate people that don’t do what they say. I’ve worked in several teams and in every one of them, I always found that gap between saying and doing.

They say they’ll do it. You count on them. And they simply don’t do it. Now, it’s the second time. You wonder: “Will he do it? Can I count on him on this time?”.

This feeling creates a mental space reserved to remind the other person to do what he said. In this case, delegating costs me more than if I’d do it myself. The consequences of not doing may be huge. I won’t risk. Working with people like that isn’t productive. Delegating becomes rare. No more teamwork.

Be the other type of person. Do what you say.
