    ♫ You can count on me
    I’m gonna get it done, get it done…♫

    Lyrics, music and recorded by Sandwich.


    Over on Small Firm Innovation, Gwynne Monahan has posed the following challenge:

    Write a post that  describes what quick, uncomplicated, untechnological habits or practices make all the difference to your practice, in 100 words or less.

    OK…nothing like a challenge. So here goes:

    Stop procrastinating.  Now.  Or as Nike says, “Just Do It!”.  Deadlines and to-do’s and such don’t get better with age.  Enter them in your Outlook calendar with associated alarms, flags and ‘Due Dates’.  Use ‘Categories’ to classify them as “Limitation Dates” and such.  Follow up  on them regularly or even better, use shared calendars and have one person in the firm designated to review all important dates weekly and ensure that they are all met.

    Turn yourself around from a procrastinator to a doer.  Let people know that they can count on you.

      I know thhis if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
      wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
      having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
      I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
      Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
