Automatic Reply

Jan 01, 1970 / Relationships and Communication     

Your email has a feature that sends out a quick response to whoever's trying to contact you. That's fine for emails, but many of us carry that auto-reply mode into our daily conversations. Your kids ask you to play with them after work. Your auto reply is, "Not right now." Your spouse asks you to help with something around the house, without missing a beat, you reply, "I'm busy now. I'll do it later." Well, it's time to uncheck that option in your conversation in-box. Treat each request as highly important and give it your full attention. We've got the Top 10 Auto Replies to Avoid and some better options to consider.
