Such a lovely small, easy word to say but it isn’t mentioned very much without hesitation. Yes is a little word with significant meaning and sometimes an even more substantial consequence.
So often this word gets tangled up in “Let me think, check my schedule, mull it around, try and find an excuse, do I owe you any favours, how much time will this take” and so on.
An immediate and spontaneous Yes is earned. It is a sign of respect and trust. Unfortunately, it is easily abused and never gets its initial trust and respect back again.
Be careful what you ask for, and you will be the recipient of genuine and spontaneous “Yes’.”
