Do you find that you just can't seem to get around to
picking up the phone and making those all-important calls?
Too many interruptions: the kids, the housework, appointments.
Plan your calling the night before and be ready to utilize
every pocket of time during the day. Each evening, make a
list of the people you'd like to call tomorrow. Write the
name, phone number, and brief reason for calling. Keep
this list next to your phone during the day. When you see
that you have 5 minutes, pick up the phone and call the next
person on the list. That evening, move the uncalled names
to the next day's list, add a few new names and you're ready
for your next day.
