Save Your Time and Money – Use the Software You Already Have

It could all be right here!


Save your time – save your money – the software you already have can likely do what you need to get done.


 So often, I’m talking to people who wish they could find software to do a process they need to use.  When I listen to their issue and ask a couple of questions, I often find they can accomplish the task with software they already have.  

We’ve been conditioned to looking to the latest and greatest in software and hardware development.  Most people, quite frankly, don’t really need more than they already have. 

For instance, Microsoft Outlook has so many more parts than just receiving and sending emails and storing them.  

  •  Did you know that you can use Outlook as a great time management tool? 
  • Did you know you can also use Outlook as a project management tool
  • And did you know that the Task List helps you combine the best of the “To Do” list with time management? 
  • Even some very simple things such as having all your email accounts come through your Outlook instead of having to visit several sites!  Did you know you could do that? 
  • Did you know that Outlook is a great contact management program for small business?  Even for you personally – never forget anyone’s birthday ever again! 
  • Did you know you can use Outlook to promote yourself and/or your business? 
  • Did you know you can use Outlook to help you with procrastination?  It’ll nag you – the best nagger you’ve ever had! 

This week I’ll review in general the most important components of Outlook to help you with Time Management.  I’ll give you some tips on how to use it to create a complete system and, if you have a PDA, you’ll be so incredibly pleased with the results – it’s not necessary to buy a ton of software – just learn to use what you’ve got!  Save your time!  Save your money!  Instead of looking for new software, look inside your own computer for the answer. 

 Stay tuned!  Every day this week, I’ll have some suggestions for using Outlook to the max – and on Friday I’ll show you how to put it all together to make it a complete system!
