The real question is why would a person willingly spend their time listening to someone uncomfortably babble on about something that could have just as easily been communicated via text message?
There’s email, instant messaging, video calls, random pop-ins, or any other number of communication options. I wonder sometimes why we even have desk phones in this day and age.
The more you do something that is uncomfortable, the more comfortable it becomes. This is also how we grow as humans.
This goes back to the comment that if you handle the small things then people will have confidence in you to handle bigger responsibilities.
On the surface changing my voicemail doesn’t add much value to me or my organization. However, when you start to peel back the layers there are some underlying benefits.
