Inaction speaks louder than words

Action speaks louder than words. But inaction speaks louder than action.

If you commit with someone to doing something then either do it or communicate that you won’t be doing it. Both options are actions.

It’s interesting that today we either commit to something, don’t follow through, and don’t communicate our intention not to follow through. Or we don’t commit to anything so we can decide later. In case something better comes up.
