Clear the phone calls from your TO DO list – see how many you can get done in 15 minutes…
My Tips and Advice:
Phone calls can mount up on your TO DO list, whether it’s because you need to do something before you call, or you need to find a number, or you simply think they are going to take a while to get through – but they actually needn’t take all that long to get done at all once you get into the rhythm of things.
- Phone the doctors to book an appointment
- Phone the dentist to reschedule
- Phone your Auntie to say thanks for the present
- Phone the electric company to give them your meter reading
The list is endless – but it may well only take 15 minutes to get them all done. Sit in a quiet space with the numbers and all information you need in front of you, and work through everything.
Even if you have to leave a message, then at least its on the other person to get back to you – you have done as much as you can, and it can come off the list – you have actioned it and moved it on.
EXTRA TIP – Its the same with emails – when you receive an email try and answer it straight away as then you can remove from your inbox as you have now passed it back to the other person to action, or you have filed it away.
