This went out to the Queen Pixie’s Daily Emails list back on Valentine’s Day 2019. We’re publishing it here because it’s got a really important lesson in it.
So, let’s imagine a romantic scenario.
You’re a woman who’s agreed to go out for dinner with a friend (male, female, or other, choose your poison) for the hell of it. But you’ve got the best intentions to keep things low‐key and not do anything that you regret.
If you did, it might ruin what you’ve got, and what you’ve got is pretty damn awesome.
But then you have a few drinks.
And a lovely dinner.
And the mood is pretty.
And then there comes a moment where you need to make a choice. It’d be easy to do what you resolved not to do. A little bit of the right pressure, at the right moment, and you’re teetering.
What do you do?
Some people are great at being true to themselves, and can do it in just about any situation. But they’re the one percenters. Everyone else? You will bow to the whims and whiles of others, if the timing, argument, and mood is right.
Now. Knowing this, put yourself in a position where you’re running a business publication of any kind. Time is tight, you’ve got pressure on yourself to do a good job; others are putting pressure on you to be consistent and deliver results.
If you’re scrounging for something to publish, and you don’t have a set of guidelines, what are you going to do?
I’ll tell you what you’ll do. You’ll cave in to the pressure of the loudest person, because you haven’t got a list of rules about when such an exemption is allowable. Nor have you built a habit of referring to your system.
And that will inevitably lead to something you’ll regret.
