Today’s lesson

I think I’m back from my sketchy blogging habits of the past week or so.

Today I learned a valuable lesson.  Sometimes I do not get the answers that I seek because I am asking the wrong questions.  Or I’m providing the wrong information to get the answers I seek.  I’ll give you an example.  My company is seeking to provide a service for our customers, and we would like to offer them credits.  A few months ago when I began this process, I went through my “we’re new in the country” speech, but I did not mention that we’re big in Korea…that we’ve been doing this thing for almost ten years.  So, I got the big, red REJECTED stamp.  Today, I called the same agencies, mentioned the proper information and, shockingly, didn’t get laughed at.  I think that we may just be able to pull this thing off.

We’ve hired a new woman.  She is very smart, compassionate…one of those sharp people who doesn’t cut you, if you know what I mean.  I know I’ve only been here for a few months, but her fresh set of eyes really helped this process.

Lesson for the day:  If you’re not getting answers, reframe your question and try again.
