Really nice <customer service> article, I used the tips and they work. Thanks again... - Call Center Rep

 

Thanks for posting this article. I found it very beneficial as it was easy to read and straight to the point. Often I find that when we try to do things better and this includes time management, we often seek for the most complicated systems because we feel that it might give us more value and direction. I have to say, the 5 simple things that you have suggested are practical and easy to adopt. I follow the same principles and I have found them to be very beneficial. I would like to use your article in my blog as my readers are interested in this sort of thing. - Blogger
