Daily Challenge….Work / Financial
‘Feeling frustrated when people don’t pay me on time, especially as I rely on the money.’
I am feeling…..Distracted / Financially Insecure / Taken Advantage of / Under Valued
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Efficient / Financially In Control / Up To Date
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
Have I set ‘payment terms’ in place?
Am I too soft in not imposing those terms?
Have I communicated my displeasure?
Am I willing to change my attitude to this issue?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Let go of attachment to payment terms in respect of ‘being nice’.
It’s just part of the fair exchange work arrangement.
See them paying you on time as important as you doing a good job.
For each new work ‘task’ verbally state payment terms, requesting prompt payment, then if it doesn’t arrive, follow up.
Adopt an attitude of ‘not being messed around’.
