Period, no puns intended whatsoever.
I once watched a Bollywood tale “Munna Bhai MBBS” about a small time hoodlum with a huge heart who hides the fact he’s a hoodlum from his family (shows them he’s a doc) – then when they take him to get married ie. to check out the girl first (he really does NOT want to get married, he even tells the girl on the phone to “reject him”, period!) – he gets found out.
His Dad gets upset, leaves, long pot boiler type story there – but the gist is this – girls Dad is the Dean at a medical college, hoodlum makes up his mind to not just join the college by hook or by crook, but also to marry his daughter, no matter how!
Dean’s daughter studies at the same college, but guy’s never seen the girl before. Hehe. So she says she’s “someone else” when they meet.
He never knows it.
Along the line, the girl he “wants to marry” i.e Dean’s daughter is “shown to him” – by another girl impersonating a slutty girl, and when he finds out the girl he thought was “so nice” – is actually the opposite, he drops all thoughts of marriage, but in the meantime, he’s been talking to that “other girl”!
And discovers he has fallen in love with her.
She initially doesnt respond, but later finds out she falls in love with him too!
That’s a Bollywood tale that came to mind.
But it holds true, I’ve seen it happen SO Often …
For relationships, in my case -so many times - not just relationships, business, life, everyuthing.
HONEST And open communication is KEY - my friend, and the barrage of testimonials I'm getting for my other writing business all hinge on this - "I love your brutally honest writing, its the most important thing for a writer!".
And it is - and in life as well.
Some of those people aren't even into the sex, kinks, etc that I mention in those books - they "just like to read them" - just like a certain Panourgias once said about my fitness books, i.e. "even if I'm not into fitness, I still like just reading them!"
That is indeed the highest compliment, or one of them any writer can be "paid"!
Anyway same thing with the lady Celene I mentioned in the last email on videos. Oddly enough, or maybe not, she got back this morning to an email I sent her with a cute little video - not email - though she's smart - she followed up with an email and links later (she knows how I hate video, so "just in case he doesnt see the video").
And THAT - along with her lovely smile, of course (hey, that doesnt hurt) - the giggles - the shyness and nervousness of doing something "in the flow" - and of course, the fact she was smart enough to make it a small video, include a proper "teaser" and so forth and most of all, deal cutter - she included LINKS so I could read if I wanted to - all great from a customer service standpoint, but also a "deal with cranky Rahul" standpoint! - made me do something I NEVER do in the early AM, period.
Watch a video.
And if I do it, I ...
Well, let me paste part of what I told her!
As you likely have already guessed I dont watch videos, hehe - and if I do, I usually very impatiently scroll past most of it to find the "meat and potatoes" of the video - most videos have too much "unnecessary talking" going on if you get my drift, and I find it much quicker to read rather than "watch" - but I watched your entire video - well made!
What I loved most about your video? The "on the spur of the moment" vibe - you likely "just decided to create a video" and send it over, and thats great - thank you so much! :)
Obviously I also read the article you sent in the other email. Hehe. I'll let you guess (without checking metrics, stats etc) whether I read the article first, or watched (the entire) video you sent first. ;-)
Yes, I know you're the customer service manager (Director) - and you are definitely customer centric - I can tell! A far cry from my own cranky "bear" self where it's about all I can do to turn on the laptop in the mornings, hehe.
(just kidding, but it's true - you're good at making videos!!)
(I guess and am sure I could be too, I just prefer email more, hehe - so that is what I focus upon).
Thats part of it.
I left out the "lovely smile" part I sent her in different lest y'all reading this burst into tears. Hehehe.
But she got me to do it, eh.
And kudos to her, not many can lay claim to "gettng me to do something I dont want to and happily at that".
She's one of a select bunch, truly. Kinda like Gorilla Girl Sophia.Hehe.
Communication RULES THE nation, period.
And it dont need to be a certain type either.
I focus on writing and email because I'm best at that, and because, well, I like it the most - the second part being key. If I wanted to, I could be a master video guy too, but I dont like it, I feel it's superflous at the end of the day unless absolutely required, in which case I'll do a darn fine job i.e. the 0 Excuses Fitness videos.
It can be via video. It can be via phone. Choose your medium!
Point being, DO it.
And do it with an open heart, do it well.
Lots of you dont like writing in, but I know you have plenty to say - to me, or in general!
Use THIS link to do it if you dont feel like exercising those fingers...
And thats that for now. Back soon!
PS - Do exercise the fingers the way I tell you in Pushup Central though, hehe. Some of the best exercises and workouts you can do - PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!
