Get a Free Lunch on Me (cough) I Mean Kinkos
It’s official. I have now been cleaning my office for an entire month. And it’s still not done. I thought that I’d been good at getting rid of old documents that I no longer needed, but somehow, every year I find another check register from 1996 and another stack of inter-office memos from a company that I haven’t worked for in over a decade.
I also have a big stack of business cards from people and companies whose names I don’t recognize that I pulled from various files.
Here’s what I just learned about myself:
Apparently, I’m friendly or competent looking enough that people give me their business cards. And, I am bad at following up with them…
At my friendly neighborhood Kinko’s where I spend all my hard earned cash making script copies, there that fishbowl by the front door with a sign that says, “Drop in your business card for a chance at a free lunch!”
Today I dropped 20 random business cards into the fishbowl.
Maybe someone I don’t remember meeting will get lucky.
