Bethenny’s Secrets To Being More Efficient
I do everything on my smartphone, I even write my books on it! When it comes to email, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that will make your life easier (not to mention the lives of the people you are responding to.)
1. Show Your Email No Mercy
When you get an email, deal with it immediately. Don’t waste time later re-reading the same email later when you can shoot off a one-sentence answer right when you get it.
2. Use FollowUpThen.com
Anytime I get an email that needs a follow-up later, whether it’s in two weeks or two hours, I send it to email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The app will send you an email right when you needs to deal with it.
3. When sending texts and emails, keep it brief.
Get to the point so you don’t waste your time or anyone else’s. Reserve the chit-chat for coffee dates.
4. When you’re waiting in line or at the doctor’s office, answer emails.
Use your time wisely and multi-task!
5. File your emails into different folders.
Organization makes everything easier.
