I find this to be a common phenomenon. It happens so much in life that I could write for days BUT today I am going to refer to people we perhaps wish we had known better yesterday than we do today. I spent the day with someone I graduated with(and ironically two others classmates who married-their daughter.). And although it has been 34 years since graduation, the stranger thing is we didn't know each other that well in high school. We attended a large high school and had completely different friends. With over 400 classmates- we knew each other- just not well. With age and wisdom and lines and wrinkles, you find out that who you might pick to spend time around today, is vastly different that so many years ago. Or maybe we become more open and realize the little things don't matter and perhaps our thoughts about who were our close friends, isn't as accurate today as it was 35 years ago... It could be simply that our needs in our friendships change over time also. As I look across my Facebook friends, I do realize something. I didn't know what I didn't know until I thought WOW- I didn't know how much I would like that person!!! Well crap-I sure missed out on having that person in my life more so many years ago. I can name 3 or 4 people like that and I think wow- I was rolling through my life and I could have enjoyed the company of these funny, kind, caring people so much sooner and MORE!! Not one to spend time regretting, I will simply make more of a point to make sure I stay connected! I invite you to look back over the years and think of some people you might have liked to have known better and reach out- Facebook is such an easy way to do this...Don't let your opportunities pass you by- we aren't getting any younger! Don't miss out on the people who will still bless you and you can bless in return! Thanks for a super fun time Annette! <3
Seriously people...If you are going to have any kind of business... EVER- you need to provide some kind of customer service. Simply start by only promising things you can deliver! If you can't deliver timely pad your estimate better to be the HERO than the ZERO- people will only do business with you that ONE time and tell people you are crap to TEN people! I just experienced this with ATT. When one person doesn't know what the other end service people are doing or capable of. It's no excuse it is still a reflection on ATT- we can only see and vent to the person who shows up. I will bend over backwards to make sure a customers happy even at my own personal expense. Why? Because in my business people buy me as much as the product! I AM associated with my products. For Heavens sake people - UNDER promise and OVER deliver NOT OVER promise an UNDER deliver!! People don't have time for that- they end up mad, frustrated at you, your product and everything in between! They will tell a bad experience over and over again! Be that person who goes the extra mile- don't be a zero- be the hero! Under Promise and OVER deliver...with a smile!
Just a gal who believes with all her heart she has the power to help others live a life they deserve!
