Pursue your intentions to the end. Referring to Zia’s example about a, “torn dress” remark, if you’re concerned about a dress, ask about it the following day, and try to help as much as possible. Don’t leave actions or ideas “floating”; follow them through!
In other words, don’t do/say something unless you accept assigning it as your own responsibility. Makes sense?
