Last night was not a great night in terms of life changing event. I missed the big opportunity in simply 3 seconds. However, I did learn something I never previously thought about. Thanks to the person who drop my business card to the dirt in 3 seconds. I know it may sounds that the person is ridiculously rude. It actually hits my head really really hard and makes me believe that I will do the same when someone hand me their business card in the future.
This is what happened last night. A friend of mine introduces me to a high profile business man. He is well respected in the industry and a very busy business man. What amazed me about him is that he DOESN’T DO ANY WORK OTHER THAN MAKING PHONE CALLS.
With one simple call to the right person, he can get what he wants, get job done and make lots money. For people like him, he doesn’t have TIME. Time is most valuable assets to him. It was my honor to be able to meet him in person. So I got my chance to introduce myself to him. He asked “What do you do?” I handed my so-called very professional and double side business card to him and said lots things that I don’t even remember now. He looked at the card for 3 seconds and said to me. “Interesting! Where is your phone number?”
