Get ahead of yourself

Go through and make a list of all the birthdays/anniversaries/significant events coming up in the next 3 months. Focus on the kind you need cards or gifts for. Then make a plan to deal with them. You could order all the cards and gifts in one go. Or schedule in time to acquire them (making sure you leave plenty of time for delivery).

Catch up on the last 7

Give yourself one day a week to clear emails from the last 7 days. Go through as usual and deal with stuff on a daily basis. Then for things that you want to take more time over then set aside an hour once a week. It’s so good to be able to take time to read longer emails and follow up links before they’re out of date!
