I was sitting here the other night and thought to myself how almost everyone of us is hooked on the digital media and online world…emails and texts and chats, etc.
Nevertheless, wouldn’t it be nice to receive sometimes a card or letter in the mail? What about just picking up the phone and talk to a person, instead of spending a lot of time writing an email or typing a phone text message?
Occasionally, I still like to practice the old fashioned ways of communication: I like to pick up the phone and talk to people. In my opinion, talking on the phone minimizes a lot of miss-communication, and eliminates the time to think: “How am I going to say this in a message, so they understand where I am coming from?”. Sounds familiar? Well, let me share a couple of thoughts with you: one of my goals is to pick up the phone more often during the week and talk to a client or friend to congratulate them, or share good news or to just check in. And what about writing a card to a client or friend saying thanks or congratulate them? I believe that it is much more personal, than receiving an email, text or an online message; don’t you think?
I know we are all busy, but I just want to keep the old fashioned ways of communication alive and minimize the digital habits. Let me know your opinion. Click on the picture to see some reasons to send out cards.
