Being Responsive


Tom Corley boats - crop

As you march towards success, you will meet many new people. Some, unfortunately, will be drawn to you for their own reasons; reasons that have nothing to do with helping you realize your dreams and achieving your goals. These individuals will exploit you, appropriating your time and money for their own ends. They need to be avoided, weeded out or ignored. Otherwise you will find yourself wasting your time and energy.

One of the hallmarks of successful people is being responsive. Responsiveness is a habit successful people cultivate. Being responsive means not ignoring those who matter to you. The key phrase here is those who matter to you.

It’s impossible to be responsive to everyone. So, how do you know who deserves responsiveness?

The individuals who deserve responsiveness are those who believe in what you’re doing, encourage you and offer assistance, when needed. The individuals who do not deserve your responsiveness are those who show zero interest in what you’re doing and offer no assistance, when needed.

Be responsive to those who matter and ignore those who don’t. When you are pursuing a dream, time is your greatest commodity. Use it wisely.
