Lesson Learned: Overlooking The Tried And True
Today I have many things I would like to blog about. Great ideas that came from some really good sources. But instead I am going to discuss a Lesson Learned that I nearly made me miss the boat. The thing that gets me the most though, is the fact that what I needed to do was right there, staring me in the face. Just like the monkey here and I was so focused on trying to get "the water" I almost missed what I needed to do. I have recently decided to get in touch with my downline members, just to check up and see how they were doing. So I sent out an e-mail, and, in one case where no response was received facebook direct connect and skype request for a time that calling would be good for them.
Tried and True Phone
The problem came in that this one person never responded and after several attempts I "assumed" she was no longer interested and just stopped trying. Till one day a few weeks later I got a frantic e-mail. Just got your message, it was all in my spam, canceled it all cause you weren't around PLEASE HELP!!! So I finally picked up the phone and did the one thing I should have done from the beginning. Can you say Lesson Learned? In the end all was saved, it was much time spent undoing the damage I did by Overlooking The Tried and True.
Yes, technology is great. Yes, many can and do communicate quite effectively through many mediums of online contact. BUT there is nothing like the Tried and True, Lesson Learned about the good ole' fashion phone call.
