Appease

More often than not, acting to appease the demand of someone else will end with the person we are trying to appease demanding more.

What are you going to do with the new request? And with the following one? And with the one that will, inevitably, come after that?

You need to be able to stand by your decisions because they make sense to you, because you have evaluated different options and assesed that’s the best course of action, because that’s what you would have done if nobody would have asked.

Intentionality is the only thing that matters.
