Over the last few days I have received phone calls from a lot of old friends and I feel bad because usually I am at work and cannot stay on the phone too long.
I actually started making a list of people who have called me just so that I can remember to call them back. I hate it when people do not call me back so I really don’t want to be one of those people.
It just feels good to answer the phone and hear a voice you haven’t heard in months or years. E-mail can be a great communication tool but there’s nothing like hearing someone’s emotions and inflections. You learn a lot from the way a single word is or isn’t emphasized. So make a phone call today to someone you have not talked to in a long time. Just see how they are, what they’re up to, and what new things have happened since you last talked to them.
