There are many admirable characteristics that help accelerate success in business and life.
One characteristic is “reliability” which can be measured by your say/do ratio.
Your say/do ratio is simply the ratio of the promises (things you SAY you will do) to the promises you keep (the things actually you Do) that you said you will DO.
In reality, there are two say/do ratios that matter:
1. Promises you make to yourself
2. Promises you make to others
What do you think your say/do ratio is for promises you make to yourself? What do you think your say/do ratio is for promises you make to others?
I doubt many people actually keep a scoreboard about these ratios. But I think most people have a strong sense of their say/do ratios.
The key take-away is that if you want to be successful in your life and in business focus on keeping your promises to yourself and to others.
