Getting More Done

By Setting an Appointment With Yourself

 

Do you have trouble getting things done during the day? Try setting an appointment with yourself. Physically in your calendar block out a certain amount of time (1hour, 2 hours, even 30 minutes). If necessary, set an alarm to alert you when time is up.

 

During this time, close your door and instruct your staff that you are not in (even to visitors). Do NOT answer the phone or process your e-mail. Let the calls go to voice mail or have someone take a message with instructions that you are out of the office and will return at ___o'clock and will return calls then. Best of all turn off the ringer on the phone and close down your e-mail program. Then take this time to work on those projects that require concentration. Don't do the small tasks that can be fitted in between other tasks tackle the big projects.

 

Don't worry, your business will not fall apart because you are unavailable for a short while. After all, if you were actually out of the office your staff couldn't interrupt you and would have to handle the situation themselves. Not only will you find yourself accomplishing a great amount of work you might find you are developing your employee's decision making skills at the same time.

 

MOST OF ALL, DON'T CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR MOST IMPORTANT CUSTOMER OR CLIENT YOU!
