Jumping over gap in mountainsIn a blog I wrote on here a year-and-a-half ago, I referred to my four Ps approach: patient, polite, professional, yet persistent.  That’s a constant in terms of the way I operate.  It’s not something you apply now and then, in certain situations, and/or when you feel like it.
