This means that


When you make a decision, when you agree to do something for a colleague or a customer, when something happens in the world, when someone makes a commitment … it means something.

This means that.

This decision means a hundred actions kick in to gear. People get hired or fired, products bloom or blush, water flows down hill or get’s pushed up the other side.

This agreement means you will do that thing for the other person. By extension, you won’t do the other things you could have done in the time. The agreement has impact.

That something in the world means yours just changed and you have to react.

Their commitment means you are dependent on them and you’ll start making whatever arrangements are necessary to take the next step as soon as they deliver.

This means that.

That means this has impact.

Skippy strategy: This demands respect.
