Be careful with the promises you accept
You may get what you settled for, and it may haunt you when demanding more.
The legend goes that there’s an old law, or rather a rule of life phrased by a man long forgotten, Jan Bruintjies: “never make a promise to me, because if you can’t deliver, you will come back and bad mouth me.”
Please keep your word if you commit to paying me on time. Else, if I need to pressure you for what you owe me, I will end up as the bad guy in the equation.
Many organizations work very hard in formulating a promise they can’t keep, using words like quality, on-time, transparency, commitment, and value. However, if you as a consumer accept the offering and the organization fails to deliver, only one person will suffer. And it is not the one that made the promise.
Bottom line: There’s a risk in accepting cheap promises.
