User testing cafe edition

User testing is the key to learn why some customers might never come to use your service.

I was curious about the #starbucks free refill policy. So I decided to test it out.
I went to a #starbuckscoffee and asked for a free refill.

I am not used to such a concept, so it made me feel uncomfortable, which could indicate that other people will probably not use it so much as well. (still an assumption)

But guess what, there was no such thing in #czechrepublic , even though on the website and the app I used, it says it is possible.

I wonder if this inconsistency hurts the brand? I visited the branch with a promise that was never fulfilled. On the positive note, the refill was less than 1 euro so it seems like a good deal. But it makes me wonder if some people would not return because of this misleading promise.

The moral is when you establish a business and build franchises, try to establish a single vision for all the branches to reduce the chances a customer might not be satisfied.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
