Communication is fucking key.
Like essential in any and all relationship.
My team and I always discuss the fact that without communicating clearly on the daily my business would absolutely not succeed or create results the way we do. Same in my romantic relationship, friendships, and basically any relationship I have communicate communicate communicate.
When you lack proper communication skills it reflects poorly on you as a person. You become less reliable and more like “ya why bother reaching out they are terrible at getting back to me”
When I hire mentors and my most recent mentor did this so well....I love having someone that respectfully gets back to me within a few days. My recent mentor would alwayssss do that. It’s like cool, she cares.
I once had a mentor who reached out and asked how I was doing and then 3 weeks later responded to my reply.
Listen listen. I understand life happens but like in a age we butt dial people it’s not hard to communicate. Granted you are not responsible to respond to people if you don’t want but don’t start a convo and then just go MIA for weeks. With that situation I wasn’t mad at all I was just clear, yup not my person.
I’m a forgiving and compassionate person. Sure I have my moments, as we all do but communication is just so gosh darn important.
I don’t need to talk to my best friends daily to know we are tight AF but I still know how to communicate with them. Communication isn’t about daily conversation but it is about knowing when conversation is needed, when space is and is NOT needed and showing up when it really counts.
One really POOR trait I see amongst years of doing business is when people who owe money go completely MIA. It’s like running, hiding and pretending it doesn’t exist won’t change the inevitable and it reflects so on your character as a person. I mean look shit and life happens. Have compassion and empathy for people, because there are ALWAYS exceptions.
I find though that people have patterns and when someone consistently shows up as a poor communicator well....believe them.
Does that mean you can’t be in a relationship with them?
Well lemme tell you it could. It’s up to you.
