If you’re reading this, you probably snuck away from family activities, football or shopping to do some work during the Thanksgiving holiday!
As long as you’re doing that, you might as well make the best use of your time. The end of the year is only 35 days away, and now would be a good time to get some things off your plate – pun intended – before the New Year begins.
Carve Up Your Contacts – go through your phone, laptop and business cards and organize your contacts by industry, priority, location or any other criteria that makes sense for you. Then put them all in one database and work from that.
Stuff Yourself with Data – read as many magazines, books, receipts and web links as time will allow. You know, the ones you’ve been stockpiling all year!
Slim Down Your Inbox – read through as many of your back emails as possible. You’ll be amazed at the new opportunities that have been laying there, waiting for action. Extract as many new contacts, potential clients, and tasks as you can and put them where you’re actually do something with them!
No Leftovers – whatever you start, finish it. Because you don’t know when you’re going to have this much quiet time again!
By the way, if you’re in a retail business or you’re hosting Thanksgiving, save this article for January – same rules apply! 🙂
