Founder productivity hack: “Call Me”

leave a comment »

The last productivity hack I shared was the open meeting, which I use to help me network with new people without crushing my schedule with lots of 1-on-1 meetings.

Today I want to share what I call the “Call Me” productivity hack. It’s easy to implement and can save you hours per month.

How it works: When someone asks you for a networking call/meeting:

  • give them a time window that you’re typically available and your phone number (my windows are the time I’m walking to and from work).
  • tell them to give you a try at that time.

No calendar invites. No back and forth scheduling emails. Simple.

Since I started doing this, I’ve found that many of the people won’t actually call. So there’s very little risk of overcommitting yourself if you decide to use this hack.

I hope this saves you a ton of time this coming year.
