Unless There’s a Really Good Reason Not to
When someone asks for a favor, just say yes. Most favors don’t take as long as thinking up a reason to turn them down would. Doing one feels better than turning one down does. You might be surprised at the ways that the favor comes back to you. I was reminded of that twice just this week with a lovely gesture and a clever response to a request for a critique. Take a look, if you have the time. I’d love for them to get them your comments.
There’s no rule that says you can’t run a business and have a heart. In fact, I look for a heart in the people I do business with.
