We’ve all had the experience of being ruled by our email inbox.
Not checking your email before 10am allows you to take the power back…
- It means you can start on YOUR work first (rather than attending to other peoples requests)
- The email storm has usually calmed by 10am (because those people who start their day with email are finally doing some work!)
- It mean’s you’ve already achieved something before you encounter any distractions or ‘urgent’ requests
If you’re in a sales role then you might like to also adopt a ’10 before 10′ philosophy when it comes to your prospecting. Following this rule, you’d call 10 people before 10am – a great start to the day.
What do you spend your time doing before 10am?
Hopefully your work before 10 is helping you to take massive progress towards your goals.
