C703764 mThe Grasshopper came up with a little rhyme that’s worth our time: “Follow-through: Doing what you say you’ll do.”

I know I’ve written about it before but one of the qualities of all the successful people I know is follow-through. The ones who aren’t as successful at what they do have a litany of reasons why they didn’t follow-through.

And let me dust off one of my favorite quotes again: “The reason life doesn’t work is because people don’t keep their agreements.” – Werner Erhard.

What is the fulfillment of an agreement other than follow-through?

If we look at where we’ve come up short in life, we have to look no further than lack of follow-through. It’s the secret ingredient for getting things done and having more successes.

Just do what you say you’ll do and you’ll experience follow-through.

Don’t do what you’ve agreed to do and you have earned the reputation of someone who can’t be counted on.

Who are you BS-ing when you commit to do something and don’t follow-through? Only yourself.

There are only two excuses that work for me.

1. Act of God.

2. I forgot.

If I hear reason 2 too often, I will forget about you, and so will everyone else.

The old road to failure is paved with excuses. To pave the way to a smoother future, make follow-through synonymous with you.

All the best,
