Survey time?

So while your busy going about your day-to-day business, rapidly adjusting to the changing world and changing opportunity bubble, I ask when was the last time someone asked you how you are?

I don’t mean how you are privately, that is of course what Facebook and social media seems to be for, or so it appears to me.

Back in the day we, with our stiff upper lip, would just have gone down the pub got drunk and had a kebab (chips for the ladies) after a bad day, blotting the memory. Now its 15 minute updates online, they say the worlds a better place….

Any way I digress - so when did you actually have an opportunity to speak with someone, to air your views on business?

Where is the opportunity to speak about your issues or views and have those thoughts taken on board?

It is an empowering thing.

So why oh why I ask, do we get bombarded with online surveys, asking pre-set questions that some anonymous spotty has dreamt up, which has little to do with your real world issues?

I guess it ticks boxes. I assume it validates an already formed view, but by god they annoy and bore the life out of me.

It also makes me wonder about the low percentage of those who return surveys, especially the online versions and how many exaggerate or let’s say, play mischief with the answers?

Surely online surveys are in the end a poor substitute for actual communication? I would be more than happy to talk to an engaged individual for five minutes than attempt an online survey any day of the week.

Remember its good to talk.
