Have you ever thought, if the customer would just leave me alone for a little while, I could really get some work done?
I must confess that I have; now my customers have gone away.
My customer is a company that recently furloughed most of it's staff. The staff is supposed to come back, eventually. My job is to support that staff so they can do their jobs.
We're still working. Which I am grateful for. But, it's really weird not having the customer around.
Now, I have the time and quiet I wanted to prepare for a project we've been trying to do. I could not get the preparations done before since supporting the individual customers occupied most of my day. Of course if they don't come back, there's no reason to do this project.
Remember to always be grateful for your customers. They are the reason you are in business. They give you purpose.
