The Fourth Test


4. The Test of the Present (a test for action)

"Now that I'm complete with this person, would it be appropriate for me to let the person know?"


If "No," then check it off in the matrix, since it’s handled.
If "I don't know," then see "Yes."
If "Yes," then follow either Option A or Option B.

Option A: Let the person know that you're complete with him or with her and, having done so, check it off in the matrix, since it's now handled.

Option B: Schedule a method by which you will let the person know that you're complete and a "by-when date" by which you will have done so. (You'll find complete instructions as to how to go about this process at the Schedule Assignment page.) Once you've posted a copy of your schedule someplace where you'll see it every day, check off all of the relationships you've scheduled in the matrix, since they're already handled. All you have to do now is stick to your schedule!
