Let’s Do This Thing Again

Make the first move

How many times has this happened after a great conversation:

“That was a great discussion. Feel good about what we talked about. We should do something sometime.”

You go home, think about how good of a conversation you had, and then go about doing whatever you usually do.

The moment passes and you don’t talk for 6 months.

The best intentions fall apart without confirmation. People get confused and our egos generally get the best of us ( “No one wants to hear from me” / “I don’t want to bother” ¬†syndrome). No one benefits.

If the conversation went well, a simple, “let’s get this in the calendar” move (firing a follow-up email¬†or verbalizing it) ensures the next step.
