Time To Change. Consider this: Words – Behaviour – Action

It starts with the letters.

I have been doing a program known as Procabulary, and at the very least I would strongly encourage you to go check it out www.procabulary.org

My relationship with myself has grown exponentially since starting the program and I can now attribute a much more decisive, accountable self with much stronger communication skills to the core language upgrade.

Something I’d like to pass along for this week’s Sunday Morning Coffee is how our words affect our time management situations. If you’re habitually late, this one’s for you.

 

Consider this.

When you are making plans with friends, talking to your employer about your shift or simply just planning on being somewhere at a certain time, how do you communicate it?

Do you say something to the effect of “I should be there around 5-5:30”?

Or do you say I will be there by 5:30.

It’s saying the same thing essentially, but the message in your head is very different.

 

In a nutshell, what I’m saying is give yourself the best opportunity to remain accountable to yourself and others around you. Make concrete language known as “solid talk” a habitual part of your language. Make wishy-washy or “soft talk” language a thing of the past.

 

Watch what happens to your punctuality.

Thanks for reading.
