- Over-deliver On Your Promise - Part 4
Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over a one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results.
He walks out of the room, he goes don't go anywhere I'll be right back and I'm thinking, Oh, no, I live in New Jersey, folks, when somebody says don't move, I'll be right back and they're upset with you. You're thinking you're gonna, you know, like an old mafia movie, you're gonna get whacked too, they're gonna take you back to the woodshed. You know, I'm having this feeling that this is about to happen to me, you know, and it seemed like he was gone forever. Although it was likely just a couple of minutes. He walks back into the room with the contract in one hand, and a check in the other hand, and he points at me with the check in his hand, and he says, Now, you can start on Tuesday, right? The agreement says you can start this coming Tuesday, and you guarantee you will start on Tuesday, is that right? And the first thing that flashed in my head was, start what? Right? It didn't hit me that I was being hired, right? I thought I was about to be thrown out of the place. I was being hired. Then he holds up his other hand, he says right here in the agreement, you can start on Tuesday on this date, and you will be done by this date. Is that still the case? And I said well, yeah, I said, you know, you told me you had a time crunch, and that you needed to have it start by a certain date. So you can collect a progressive payment on your construction project, and you needed to finish on a certain date, so you can get your certificate of occupancy. I said those dates are still good to me. He says I'm going to hold you to it. So he kind of forced didn't quite throw it at me but kind of forced the paper and the check towards me, puts it in my hand and he's like, Alright, now get out of here. I'll see you Tuesday.
