For Growth, , Never Check Your Email in the morning

Here at Barry Accountants if there is one thing we have learned in the past 5 years is that to have business growth, you have to focus on what you are good at. There is so much distraction these days from mobile phones, staff, walk in’s, unsolicited phone calls, meetings, faxes, tv, radio that it’s hard to think straight, never mind perform.

You know what to do, You’re Just not doing it!  (Title of upcoming book by Jeffrey Gitomer)

To remind you of what you already know, but have temporarily forgotten then do the following.

  1. Take emails off your mobile phone
  2. Only check them at a predefined time in the late afternoon (e.g. 2 pm)
  3. Answer them all the same afternoon
  4. Write your ” To Do” List for the next day and attack it from the morning on

This way, you aren’t being diverted from what you plan to do. There is an industry built around Time management courses, but you already know what to do.

Prioritise and eliminate distractions.

It’s the only way for business growth to have any chance of success.
