About a month and a half ago, we started a weekly post on the Simply Placed Facebook page titled the Tuesday Ten Minute Toss Challenge. Its been receiving a great response and lots of participation. We decided to move it to the blog so we’d have a little more space to elaborate on the post if we chose. We’ll still post the challenge on the Facebook page, but wanted to have the details here as an enhancement.
The feedback we’ve received so far is that you like the bite size nature of the tasks, that they are motivating you into action, and that the specific suggestions on “toss” projects are timely and do-able. Great! We’ll keep ’em coming. If you have ideas for a Tuesday Ten Minute Toss Challenge, please let us know! In the meantime, check back weekly for a new challenge and make sure to join in the fun. We look forward to hearing about how you do with the challenges. Chime in anytime! Now on to this week’s challenge:
Time for the Tuesday Ten Minute Toss Challenge! RIGHT NOW spend 10 minutes on that huge list of contacts on your phone, Outlook, or other contacts database you use. Quickly select people that you don’t keep in touch with, don’t recognize or have never contacted before and remove them from your contacts. Ten minutes is a long enough time to sort, reorganize or delete people from your list, making it easier to use and simpler to find the people you do contact often. Take our challenge and get control of one of those contact lists!
What’s that? 10 mintues is not long enough to accomplish this task? You’re welcome to take longer if you’d like, or if you have the time. Alternately, schedule another bursts of time in your calendar to complete the task. Either way, 10 minutes spent and progress made, is better than doing nothing at all.
Did you have long lists of contacts that needed ten minutes of maintenance? Tell us how you did with today’s challenge!
