You arrived early to the meeting at the cafe because you’ve been trying to schedule this meeting for ages with this person. You’ve been planning for what you’re going to say and you’ve played out almost every scenario.
You feel the vibration in your pocket and begin to think, “Who could that be?”
Not fully wrapping your mind around the fact that it might be the inevitable text. So… you take out the phone and find out your worst nightmare. It read, “…
…”Hey I’m so sorry but can we reschedule? Something important just came up and I need to take care of. I’m so sorry but lets get in touch early next week to reschedule.”
Your head drops in between your knees. Your left there sitting in the cafe, your emotions at an all time high, and you don’t have a clue to do next because…
You never prepared yourself to get that text.

- Social Media Post
- Catch up on emails/texts/phone calls
- Schedule meetings
- Just keep taking action as if the meeting was still happening
