[2] 75. Fix what you often break. I used to be terrible about putting meetings and phone calls on my calendar. I figured I’d get to it later, and then I never did. Then I spent way too much time, often in a panic, trying to figure out when and where and who …
All that time was wasted time. So I finally decided I would immediately enter every appointment into my calendar the moment I made it–no matter what.
You probably have at least one thing you tend to mess up. Maybe you don’t file stuff properly. Maybe you put off dealing with certain emails and then forget them. Maybe you regularly find you’re unprepared for a call or meeting.
Whatever your “things” are, fix them. You’ll save time and aggravation.
