Why Not? — Who can waste ‘your’ time?

Posted on: April 12, 2011

Reading a very interesting book (“The Go-Giver” By Bob Burg and John David Mann). Wanted to share this amazing extract from this story:

‘I have to know you’re taking this seriously. But here’s what is far more important: you have to know you’re taking this seriously.’

Joe nodded slowly. ‘I think I understand. You want to make sure I’m not wasting your time. Fair enough.’

Pindar Smiled. “Joe, no offence, but you don’t have that power.’

Joe looked confused.

‘I mean, the power to waste my time. Only I can do that.’

Very true. Won’t it be foolish to give away that power to waste our time to somebody else, or worst, something else?
