Communicators and Engagers, or Deflectors and Hiders

In my day to day work, I see two major patterns: on the one side–there are the folks who CAN BE DEPENDED ON TO answer their phones, read their email (or if they don’t right away, at least will attempt to go back and read, tag, or write), return phone calls, and are capable of responding to a simple request, such as ‘Will do’–‘Will get back to you tomorrow’–or even just the simple ‘Thanks’.

On the other side, there are the folks who you can DEPEND upon their not replying. It isn’t just that the link is broken with lack of response, but you are constantly left to wonder if they even READ your note or got the message.

We are all busy. All of us. I wish so much to have more of the prior and less of the latter. That is not my point. It is the increasing preponderance of these second folks, making getting things done harder than ever, because THE entire reason you are dealing with these folks, is because either you need them and HAVE to deal with them., or have agreed to help them, despite their own helplessness to operate effectively, if at all.

In our personal world, many of us want love. And you do not go looking for love, but to BE the love. Same here. Let us not so much shun these indefinite communicators as be our own definite communicators. It is the old ‘be the change you want’. Be a definite communicator and respond to others and strive to be the sort who is known for keeping their word, doing as you say, and acting dependably.
