Are you scheduling time for things that matter?
Things like thanking your best referral sources, reviewing your year end numbers, or even planning a great
Valentine’s dinner with your sweetie?
I do and I encourage my clients to do it, too.
One of the many things I tell my clients that changes their lives is, “Your brain is NOT for remembering.”
Seriously. It isn’t.
Brains are good for lots and lots of things, but remembering stuff (especially nowadays in our information-packed, three-phone-numbers-per-person world)? Not so much.
One of the biggies we work on in my life-changing Time Map Method (TM) is scheduling the important stuff. Maybe it only happens once or twice a year, but it’s really important for the health of your business. You must plan for it – if you can remember ahead of time that it’s coming up.
What are the costs if you don’t remember?
For one of my clients, it turns into a HUGE scramble in January to get ready for February’s tax demands. Staff isn’t prepared, they haven’t had their education updates, and paperwork doesn’t get out on time. It puts everyone behind and causes untold stress. While the quality of work doesn’t necessarily suffer, no one is better for all the rushing and hurrying it takes to pull it off.
Now though, since my client has gone through my Time Map Method, those important things are captured on a master calendar, never to be forgotten by her already-too-full-brain again.
If you’re ready to plan those important-but-not-often-recurring events while making darn sure the important stuff gets done without relying on your brain to remind you, here’s perfect solution: Out of Overwhelm Once and For All http://yourorganizedguide.com/out-of-overwhelm
