6. Communicate
Communication is key in every area of your life, and to be truly reliable you need to be truly transparent and open about your capabilities, your time and your goals. Reliable individuals aren’t just people you can depend on to do what needs to be done, they are people who will tell you what is happening every step of the way. Even if they don’t meet the requirements of a task or role, if they are open with you about their progress, you’ll still feel confident in their skills and know that they are reliable.
