I no-call no-showed a connect call yesterday.
It was with a fellow coach. I accidentally stood her up.
I saw her message saying something like, “Hey! Ready for our call?” My heart sank into my chest. I had completely forgotten to put it in my calendar. Therefore, it didn’t exist.
One of my values is timeliness. When people are late to things with me, I tend to get heated.
But when stuff like this happens, I get humbled and it becomes much easier to practice patience and compassion.
When I get annoyed with something, it begs the question:
Have I ever done this thing that I’m so upset at? Have I been perfect in this regard?
