Today’s Tip from Trapper:
Playing Tag as a Child Was Fun. Telephone Tag is NOT!
For sure, playing telephone tag is a time-waster. So why play? Make a change by setting telephone appointments and honoring them. If you can’t take the time to talk with somebody who just called you, say so and set an appointment to call them back, rather than just say, “I’ll call you back.”
When responding to voicemail, don’t just leave a message, leave the best time to reach you. And above all, avoid irritating others by saying your number so fast that it’s hard to understand, forcing them to waste time by replaying your message over and over to get your number.
These simple tips not only save time, they are good manners.
