Don’t you hate it when you have plans with someone and they bail last minute? Isn’t it even worse when you KNOW they’re going to ditch you but they wait until the last minute to do it?

You know how irritating that can be, but have you ever thought of how often YOU end up flaking out on plans?

It’s easy to call others out when they don’t keep their promises, but when it comes to your own actions, you might not be aware of how much you cancel on others.

Think about last week: did you keep all of your plans? How many cancellations did you make? Why did you end up canceling?

Bailing on plans when there’s an emergency is one thing. Flaking out because you just don’t feel like doing it isn’t necessarily a route you want to take too often.

If you do this too much, people will stop relying on you. Or worse, stop inviting you to things altogether.

Today, be more aware of both your professional and social obligations, and stop bailing on your plans.

Unless there’s an emergency, force yourself to follow through with your promises. If you’re having a hard time doing this, you might be over-scheduling yourself.

Before making plans, think about what you can realistically do this week. That way, instead of canceling plans, you simply don’t make them.

This will make you feel more in control of your social and professional obligations, and less guilty about missing events. Plus, it will improve your social life and strengthen your network.

What do you do to stop bailing on your plans? Let us know!
