(to see one way I help my manage time and build my business, click here)
I set alerts to remind me to do my “to-do” stuff, take my vitamins, get my exercise, check certain websites and so forth.
So here’s how you can most benefit from this technique:
Make a list of all the little things that tend to fall through the cracks.
Pick out the ones that have the most value for you – such as finding new affiliates, new products to promote, new people to interview – your list will vary. These are your priorities and not to be ignored.
Set an alert for each one. Depending on what it is, the alert might be daily, weekly, etc.
Very important: Attach a note to each alert so you know what it is you’re supposed to do. If you’re like me and you don’t attach a note, you won’t have a clue when the chime goes off as to what it means.
Add alerts as you think of new things you should be doing.
After a few weeks of this, I think you’ll be pleasantly shocked at how much more you get done, and how much faster you’re growing your business.
