Trust is fragile gift. One that you must hold on to dearly and handle it with utmost care. We need trust in everything we do. It’s that component in life that when you have it, everything becomes possible. It is the basis of healthy relationships; first cultivated with ourselves and then with everything that surrounds us.
In this short article I want to focus on contractual trust. Where one party promises to act a certain way, and in return the other party promises to respond in an agreeable manner. This is the preliminary stage of establishing the very critical step of building the foundation for trust worthy relationships. The stage where expectations are built, and deliverables become metrics for character and capacities judgment. Presumably, both sides take this step with their best of intentions to meet expectations.
