Don’t Make This Thing Harder Than It Has To Be. Just do something.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Use Your Mail Box.
In-box or out-box ... they both serve the same purpose.

I received an email this morning from a friend/associate who found himself “thumbing” through his in box recently. As a result, he sent me (and others) an email detailing his experience.

“While reviewing my inbox today,” he wrote, “I saw how many names of friends and acquaintances I had failed to stay in touch with.”

And that, my friends, is what is known as an “Ah-Hah” moment. What made this exercise worth the time is that he actually did something about it. He
contacted a bunch of those “forgotten” names.

Why not try the same thing with your email boxes. Give them a quick once-over and I am betting a bunch of valued names will appear out of the  past. Then, send them a reminder that you still are in the game and that you wish to remain on their radar screen.

Get ready for some really neat surprises. This exercise (experiment) will make you smile. I guarantee it.


Yep! The big boys have put on the pads and it will be time for some football soon. That means that Fall is just round the corner. That means that Summer will soon be over. That means that you have just a few more weeks to blame your lack of “do” on summertime.

Gotta go do me some “do.” Have yourself a month you can be proud of.
