Don't get 'stuck' on-line. If part of your marketing is focused on Web with e-mail newsletters or similar marketing tools, hire someone to do updates for you. If you value your time and have set a dollar figure for Web-update time, you can see wisdom in having a less expensive individual perform this function. Use an employee, student, independent contractor or virtual assistant.
It's too easy to sit in front of computer and get lost when that time could be better spent writing or going for a walk. Take care of yourself, first!
Mornings are best for detail work. The mind is refreshed and capable of high functioning. It's best to return phone calls in afternoon, especially if they are non-urgent. Critical thinking is best done in morning. Delegate all your non-essential tasks. The more structure you have in your work, more freedom you have.
As a last item, learn to say no. Say no to anything that does not fit into your annual plan and your goals. The purpose of creating your plan is to determine what you really want to do. If a request comes for a volunteer or paid situation that does not fit into your plan, just say no.
Saying 'no' is difficult for many people, especially if they are just discovering their boundaries.
Remember - always take care of yourself first!
