Speed of Trust

Note to future self…

Today I heard this quote about someone saying that relationships move at the speed of trust. Apparently, it was the title of some business book but I feel that the general idea resonated with my own experience.

I feel that I tend to operate under the assumption that people should be trusted to do the right thing. In parallel, I also tend to believe that I will be able to figure things out.

I feel that this high level of trust in people and my environment is a huge privilege and a huge blessing. The more you can trust people the more you can leverage their expertise to help you go further than what you would have been able to on your own.

Disclaimer: Inevitably things will occasionally go wrong and that’s ok. I feel that internalizing the losses and writing them off as the cost of doing business is a net positive.

Now back to work..
