How to Get People to Stop Ignoring You: The Douglas Adams Method


Next time you are trying to work on a project with someone and they aren’t giving you any information about how to improve it, just do what Douglas Adams did when he was trying to adapt The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy into a movie in 1999: send them a letter and include a ridiculously long list of ways to contact you. That way, as Adams puts it, “If you manage not to reach me, I shall know you’re trying not to, very, very hard indeed.” By the way, if you don’t like this post, you can contact me at my aunt’s boyfriend’s florist shop at 22 Main Street, Hackleburg, AL.
