I’m at dinner the other night with a new friend. She’s an actress. I fancy myself a writer these days. The two of us are talking about breaking through in our respective fields. I commented on how there’s a fine line between persistent and pushy.

    Should the Italian Post Service let me have your book I’d be more than happy to review it! That is, they use tethered mini black-holes as delivery vans …

    Hi Phil,
    You make a great point about business. I tend to say that you can’t piss off people who won’t help you. But the flip side is you don’t want to burn a potential contact (and your reputation) because they’re slow to respond. It’s a fine–and sometimes frustrating–balance.
    (By the way, I think you’re working it the right way.)

    It’s a fine line, but I like to think that I stay on the right side of it.

    With you Phil. I’m always trying to find the right balance myself. Honestly, I think I need to learn to push a little harder. But hey, this is something that one just continues to develop over time, so hopefully I’m going in the right direction.
