Today is ‘Follow-Up Friday’ in our office.
There are SO MANY MOVING PARTS to this business that it is imperative to spend at least one day a week tracking and following-up. “Did all the fabric for the sofa get shipped to the vendor? If it shipped, did it ARRIVE? Was the right amount sent? Was the right color sent? Did it arrive damaged? Are we still ‘on time’ for the delivery?” Whew! And that’s just ONE SOFA….imagine that multiplied by a WHOLE ROOM and then multiplied by ALL OF OUR CLIENTS.
So, before I started the day, I cut some fresh flowers for my desk. As we track door hardware, a mirror, get tile decisions, plan meetings for next week and update clients with progress reports, we can enjoy a bit of my garden’s bounty.
Have a well-designed day,
