Do you ever have some time to kill when you don’t have a computer with you? I’ve found the perfect activity!
Write your thank you notes!
I spend a lot of time at courthouses, waiting for my clients’ cases. I can bring my laptop to some courthouses and work on it while I’m waiting. But that’s not always possible. Besides, it’s bulky, and I wouldn’t have internet access.
Then I realized that I usually have something else I can do. I hand write several thank you notes every week. Everyone who refers a client to meet gets a personal thank you note, and I send them for many other reasons as well.
This task is beautiful in its simplicity. You just need a thank you note and a pen. I already have a pen when I’m at court. And a couple thank you notes don’t add any noticeable weight or bulk to my papers. I can even carry a few stamps, seal up the notes, and drop them at a mail box on my way back from court.
Do you have any offline activities you do to stay productive when you’re waiting somewhere?
