Do you recognize them?
Have you ever felt that you got through the day and not all was accomplished as you had desired?
We have all been there, the first thing to recognize is what is really happening during your day. Are you using a daytimer or outlook to keep track of your daily appointments and "to-do List"? If so, are you using your time wisely?
The biggest distraction in our technological day is Email. How many times are you being distracted by your email in a given day. As we go through the day, how much time is being sucked up or wasted by reading email, responding and then being distracted instead of doing or completing the task that was to be taking place.
Here is a simple thing to do for a 2 day period, track your time for email correspondence. Place a notepad by the computer and each time you check your email, respond to an email and then distract to complete the email task write how many minutes it took. Then tally the number of minutes at the end of the 2 days. Take a good look at where your time is being taken up by this task. Ask yourself, How many times a day is realistic in check and responding to an email, do you give it more value then a personal phone call?
What is the Value?
Distractions are really what takes you away from what is important in getting done.
The biggest value that we have in impacting your business or life is truly connecting.
Has Email become are form of connection rather than a personal phone call, a written note in the mail or a simple bouquet of flowers. How do you really want to impact your clientele now and in the future.
Be aware that the personal connection is much better time spent then checking your email over 100 times a day.
