Being a Good Follow-Upper

by Tony Chung on January 11, 2007

Two weeks ago, Bloglines contacted me after I signed up to try out some of their new products. They sent me an e-mail to choose a date to swing by their office. I responded. And that was it. No confirmation. No meeting. No follow up.

I think following up with people is very important. This means:

    1. returning e-mails
    2. responding to blog comments
    3. getting back to ppl about pending items
    4. being proactive on items you are waiting on

follow-up

Following up makes life easier with less burdens. It also increases your credit and brightens your reputation. Sometimes I have trouble being a good follow-upper, so I’ve been meditating about how best to follow-up with people. I think the key is to respond or follow-up with people as soon as the opportunity rises. (ideally right away) Stalling will only lead to two potential outcomes:

    1. forgetting
    2. delaying

Being a good follow-upper is a good way to live. C’mon Bloglines! :p
