How I Respect Your Time. Tip #10. Identify what value you will bring

Why is this respectful of other people’s time?

Simply because, whether they admit it or not, everyone is time poor these days. It’s one of the greatest ironies today that all the wonderful conveniences and inventions we’ve created have only resulted in us spinning around the wheel even faster than before. And if we are time poor, we have to be fairly selective about what we decide we will do with our time.

It’s not a reflection of who you are or what you’re about – it has to do with our values and our choices.

If you identify the value you bring up front, it makes it easier and quicker for people to make the decisions you too, need them to make, about you. You simply cannot expect that people will do things for free or that their time is not precious to them.

In any case, identifying the value brought crystalises things for the people you approach while clarifying, for yourself, your ultimate intent.

This is part of a series of 20 posts on How I Ensure I Respect Your Time.

    This was a gem. I was wondering when we would see the next tip. This was worth waiting for. Clear, concise and correct. You are thinking on a cosmic wavelength. Very good. Thank you.


    • (blush) thanks a lot Vincent. Your comments are valuable. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback, so critical when we put ourselves out there with our ideas. It’s been crazy busy for me with a few projects on the boil, so I have to admit this series has taken far longer to do than I would have wanted. But its been a fun ride so far!
