Promises, are vague. Talk, talk, talk. Talk is cheap.
Instead of promising to someone else, make a promise to yourself: to speak less and do more.
Let your words be the foundations to fulfill the promises you made to yourself and the promises you never made verbal to the recipient.
We all love to be delighted. We all hate to be heartbroken from a promise not fulfilled and love to be surprised from a joy not anticipated.
If you and I could become the forces of injecting such surprises into every relationship, be it personal or professional, life is nothing more than a magical gift.
