If you’ve read any of my posts, you’ll notice a trend I have that something important is ‘everything’ every week. And I guess the most important one of these is flexibility. It’s vital. If you are flexible, you will maximize not only what you can get done in a day, but also everything else that needs to be done. That’s the beauty of being flexible.

In today’s economy, the need to for flexibility is even more important because you have to be everything to your customers. They will go someplace else in a heartbeat and replacing them may not be possible. It’s the nature of the beast, if you will, and boy is the beast vicious.

So here is a tip for becoming more flexible. Get organized. The best way to be flexible is to quickly analyze what you have on your plate. Then finish the tasks that are most important. When something else comes up that is pending and needs to be done, do it and then go back and finish the first thing. But make a note of it! It takes about two seconds to remind yourself of what you need to do and may possibly be the most helpful two seconds of your day.
