Don’t break trust
Permission is sensitive.
Every time you ask someone for the right to do something, explicitly or implicitly, there is a cost.
That price draws against what I like to call the trust bank.
The trust bank is how much does someone trust you.
Like a regular bank, the trust bank relies on deposits and withdraws to work.
- “Permission” (small, when you don’t abuse trust)
- “Permission” (HUGE, ABILITY TO WIPE AN ACCOUNT, when you abuse trust)
Big withdraws are happen quickly, and unlike a regular bank, once you overdraft, you are out, and the relationship ends.
Permission is fragile, don’t break it.
