Sometimes you can’t help postponing a meeting.
Which happens more, that you postpone on others or that others postpone on you?
People tell me their ratio is about 1:1. For me, I feel people postpone on me at least three or four times more. If someone depends on me, I try to meet their trust.
If others postpone on me more, am I too lenient? A pushover? A loser? If I don’t postpone as much as others, am I more disciplined? Have I misplaced my priorities?
Do you know ways I can lower how often people postpone on me? Should I postpone more?
