I've been working with (Let's call him Jerry.) for 2 months. Yesterday, we had this email exchange.
Jerry to his prospect: Did you talk to Gene?
His prospect: We have discussed it some and I think I could set up a lunch sometime so you guys could discuss it more. I am out sick today. Let me get back to work and I'll see about that. Sent from my iPhone
Jerry to me: I’m thinking of replying with: You can schedule a meeting (link to his calendar). Hope you get to feeling better.
Me to Jerry: I would reply.... Feel better.
Jerry to me: Why just ‘feel better’?
Me to Jerry: why not?
Jerry to me: Am I hurting anything by adding the youcanbookme link?
Me to Jerry: Don't you feel like you're driving the process?
Jerry to me: Isn’t that what I’m doing with the HS leads?
Me to Jerry:
Jerry to me: Is this driving or pushing?
Me to Jerry: You're trying so hard to be cute and smart, but you're wasting your time. Your three months is up on 12/31 and I've seen nothing to convince me that I'll be working with you after that.
Jerry to prospect: Feel better.
What was the original lesson behind the feel better response? (Clue in the title?)
What was the lesson behind the pictures?
