  1. Jan,

    All 13 are easy to fall into and just as easy to avoid. A little forethought would be invaluable.

    Take a look at yourself from another person’s point of view. What do they/you see?


  2. So true! “Flaky McFlakerton”, LOL. Like Marc says above, we should try to see ourselves as others see us. Would we want to build a business relationship with us? Over-committing is something I’m guilty of. I do too much, then I get overwhelmed and things start to slide. Thanks for posting!

    • Indeed. I used to make all kinds of commitments (always with the best intentions) that were mostly impossible to keep. I learned it is easier to say “no” right away than to explain your failure later on.
