I recently contacted someone to do some work for me and after a while they wrote back and said no. They had a few other projects on and really couldn’t commit to me – it was one of the best emails I’ve ever received.
So often I find people talk a big game or commit to wonderful things then don’t come through and every single time it’s a huge disappointment. Sometimes I just want to shake people. The words below are some of my favourites – I was reminded of them because I’m filling in a blog interview (as Emma Makes) and was re-reading this list I wrote last year.
I made the image using Recite – a great site where you can make super nice looking posters in two shakes of a lambs tail.
P.S. If you’re reading this and thinking “she still hasn’t done that thing I wanted” then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d hate to think I was letting anyone down.
