@Danny Brown @GiniDietrich  You'll definitely enjoy them. The Hippo book seems like something right up your alley. And having read your blog post today, I might not be too far behind you. Some change in the air, just not sure how big it will be yet.

@Word Ninja  Well then you should definitely try to connect with my friend @andilit . I'm sure she'd be willing to talk you through some of what she is doing there.

@andilit  It's funny, as I was leaving to walk the dog, I noticed you were here reading this and was hoping you would comment. I just started re-reading "God's Whisper Manifesto" late last night, and was thinking that you would enjoy this post. (cue Twilight Zone) music. I feel like we need to have some conversations. And when the zombie apocalypse starts, I'm headed down there!

@Danny Brown  Yeah, I generally follow that practice, but it depends. If it's in a blog post, then I like to have a new tab open since the person might not be done reading. And yes, LET'S BURN THEM!

@synchronicitysolis  I'm only talking about ten seconds of time here, anyway, and I'm not saying that you tell them what they want to hear. Just to think through how it is going to be perceived. Two very different things.

@RandyGreene  Agreed, Randy. And even then, we still post stuff that we think is great, but forget to process it through the filter of someone else. It's less about what we intend to say, and more about what the listener hears. It's about perception.

@biggreenpen  Agreed. In most cases that I've seen, great customer service almost always points back to two things: training and corporate culture. You need to train your staff on customer service, and then it needs to be a part of the everyday culture of your organization from the top down. I'd actually love to get input from @adamtoporek  on this.

@krisbradley74  That's a great point, Kris. Sometimes we see something of importance out of the corner of our eye. From a business perspective it's more about being in the right place at the right time, rather than shoving our messages down people's throats.
