Most of us work with an email provider that has some kind of notification system on our computers (a preview, a tone, or an icon). Yes, this notification is a great thing – except when it isn’t! As you work toward your big goals each day, the last thing you want distracting you is email notification.

Constant bombardment by these notifications may keep us in the loop, but it also catches us in the loop of constantly checking email rather than attending to the more important tasks at hand. (Read this for more on this topic.)

SO … what do you do when you need that program open to keep track of calendar appointments, tasks and email content?

Here’s a tip!

You can efficiently use your email program if you set it to work offline while you’re working on other tasks. Most email programs offer a setting to temporarily turn off incoming email or work offline. This allows you access to needed information and allows you to control when you read and manage your incoming messages.

You are focused, successful and high achieving, yet the “big success” is just out of reach. What you need is to upgrade your capacity building strategies so you can feel a sense of accomplishment each day. First step? Take advantage of my complimentary Discovery Conversation.

(Important!! These appointments are complimentary, but to be really clear, they are limited in number and reserved for people who meet these criteria: You are willing and ready to improve your current situation You are ready to invest money in your potential so you can experience different results You are willing to push your comfort zone (just a little to start!)
