In other words, they are committed unless a good enough reason not to comes up. They relate to commitment like it is optional or it depends on the circumstances at the time. It sounds […]

The Hidden Cost of Maybe

Maybe often seems like the sensible answer, neither yes nor no. It’s a safe answer, isn’t it? Maybe can take many forms. Statements such as “I’ll think about it,” “I have to check my calendar,” “I don’t want to commit then disappoint,” “I don’t want to make a mistake,” I’ll wait and see,” […]
