One of those days

Have you ever had one of those days?  The one where the best of intentions and best thought out ideas just fall miserably short of the actual plan in mind?  That was yesterday.

While attempting to introduce more non-profit organizations to Awareness Home Funding, our email server had other ideas.  The plan was to send each contact a single email message that touched on the concepts of trust and reliability.  However, our server thought it would be hysterical if we sent a select group of contacts a handful of messages – the same message.  It sent the same message at least 4 times and to some as many as 22 times.  Yeah, we weren’t laughing either.

The point and lesson learned through this?  We are human.  It provided us an opportunity to review our processes.  Perhaps the best outcome is that it gave us an opportunity to connect in a real, vulnerable way to those we wanted to in the first place.  In that regards, maybe this wasn’t such a bad day after all.
