3 Secrets to Get More Done

I am swamped with things to do these days but since I have 3 secrets to get more done in less time, I’m going to be okay. I have 2 new products to launch, a bunch of old products to get upon my clickbank site, workouts to film, emails to write, and programs to write for clients.

Not to mention a chocolate lab puppy to enterain 2-3 hours per day.

And you’re probably even busier than me.

That’s why we can never get enough of this topic…”how to get more done”, as well as, “how to spend less time on email”.

So even though I just covered this last week, here are some more secrets to getting more work done, and therefore making more sales online…

1) Block time for projects, not email

The “gurus” of the day are all preaching “set aside time twice per day to check email”.
But I actually believe that is the wrong mindset.

You should focus on blocking time for projects, and frankly, if you get time for email later, then check it. But base your day around making progress on your e-book or DVD’s, not on getting to email.

2) Set more deadlines

Each night, set a deadline to get a big task done before you even think about checking email each day.

That might be writing 10 pages of your ebook or 3 newsletters for your readers.

But get those done first, before any inboxes are checked.

Set deadlines for each day, week, and month. If you have deadlines,you’ll get more done.

3) Charge yourself for each email sent

If you’d just stop sending so many un-necessary emails, you’d stop getting so many needless emails in return.

So change your mindset. Imagine email isn’t free. Imagine it costs one dollar to send each email.

Would you still send it?

Remember, each un-necessary email is robbing you of time, even if it doesn’t cost you money.

Time you could spend in the gym, with your family, or sitting in a comfy chair with a good book.

4) Bonus Tip: Take back your cellphone!

Listen, how many people absolutely, positively, MUST have your cell phone number?

3?

1?

Maybe 5?

Cellphones should be for emergencies only.

If you travel for work to see clients, then yes, you do need to have a cellphone for clients.

But if you work in an office, your clients can call your company’s receptionist to make appointment changes. They don’t need to be bugging you all day and at night during your leisure time.

Cut out the needless cell phone calls, emails, and you’ll find yourself with a lot more time to get things done.

Be ruthless with your time.

Remember…every minute spent on email or business calls is time stolen from your kids, your family, your dog, or your business.

If you look at it that way, you’ll cut out the crap and get more done in every aspect of your life.
