However, Please, Please, Please … feel free to remind me.
Send me a note with a reminder of the things I committed to do.
Does this mean I’m lazy?
I hope that’s not what you take from this. To me it means I’m busy. Busy-ness can lead to forgetful-ness. Everyone is busy. Everyone forgets. Or just misinterprets the ask.
The remedy to this is to take notes AND send follow ups reminding everyone of the tasks and asks.
Some Will Be Insulted
There will always be people that will take offense to this type of effort. I’m not one of them.
Reconnect, Re-Convene, Re-Engage
I look at it as a way to let me know you remember our conversation and that you value it enough that you are sending me a note to remind me.
Is this passive aggressive? To me… No. It’s just a way to stay connected while memorializing the commitments we made to each other.
Please… Help Keep Me Honest
Send me notes after we meet. Send me a follow up too. I for one will appreciate it.
PS – Don’t be surprised if I do the same for you.
The end result is Better Communications, Getting More Done, and Keeping Each other Honest.
