Today’s been manic. . .a client called me this morning at 9.00 and wanted me to meet for an appointment straight away!. . .
I said ‘sure no problem’. . .’no problem at all!’. . .
Then after I put the phone down I realised, that I had confirmed without checking to see what I had already scheduled for the day. . .
It turned our that I could still manage the new appointment, but what if I couldn’t!. . .which client would I have let down!. . .
Would I have based my choice on first come first served or, would I have checked to see which client would potentially generate the most monies!. . .
Maybe I would have decided by which client I liked the best!. . .
There are many times in life, where unexpectedly, someone asks for our help, sometimes it’s financially, sometimes it’s a listening ear, sometimes it’s a helping hand. . .
I wonder if, when we are asked to do something, we respond every time with ‘yes’, ‘sure, no problem’. . .or maybe we decide who gets our help, by their social standing. by what we will get in return or based on wether it will cost us anything. . .
I have know finished my appointment, and it was a pleasure doing business. . .
It’s funny, how we can never really know how things will turn out, even when we judge a situation, or presume the worst in people. . .
. . .’but its always cool when after helping someone we can say. . .
. . .”It’s been a pleasure doing business with you”. . .
