When to Walk Away

Recently, I was reminded of how important it is to live by your ethics and beliefs, and not be dragged down by those who don’t meet your standards.

Sometimes, you just have to walk away. Not all people share your beliefs, and if you aren’t careful, you’ll be wasting time and energy on them.

If someone doesn’t return your calls, reply to emails, or follow-up when they said they would, then they aren’t going to produce a trusting relationship – the building blocks of business. They are simply rude, unorganised and unprofessional.

It can be hard to walk away, but wasting your time on someone who is constantly rude is demoralising and frustrating.

There are people who appreciate your value – spend time on them instead.
