I was reminded again how important follow-up is to our success as professionals.  Taking a moment to finish the job and let folks know the outcome.  A former colleague’s favored the line was “DONE – NEXT” and this simplicity always made me smile.   It is a small practice, but one that will get you noticed.  It has been said that the fortune in in the follow-up.
