Writing about why I hate confessing and do it anyway last week has got me thinking about another kind of confession that builds trust.

Why I hate confessing and do it anyway

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the power of confessions. I don’t mean the criminal or religious kind; I mean garden-variety acknowledgments and admissions. They have a curious relationship to trust-building.

A Weekly Tip Hiccup

There’s no tip this week.

I’m tempted to fib and say it’s because the Get Real team is taking a well-planned week off.

The truth is I just didn’t get it written in time for publication today.

When I came back from my extended time off in August, I made a personal commitment to stop routinely working evenings and weekends. It’s been a month and so far I’m sticking to it. I’m also still muddling through how to make it all work. One casualty so far: this week’s tip.

Worry not, this is a temporary thing. You’ll have something substantive in your inbox next Tuesday. I just didn’t want to skip a week without saying anything. (Although I was tempted to do that, too.)

Until next week …

I hope you’ll be entertained by what may be a bit of a rant.

I’ve borrowed the headline for this week’s tip (“Learn TIPS and TRICKS to CLOSING MORE DEALS”) from the subject line of an email I received last week. When I read it, I let out a very loud groan.
