I used to be fast. I used to be reply to email, faster than anyone I have ever known. I used to reply to comments, just a few minutes after someone published them. I am not that fast anymore. As a matter of fact. I am really slow.
I always respond.
But, sometimes it takes 24 hours, and other times it can take more than a week. It all depends.
I am not sure if this is a good thing or not. I really want to be fast. I really want to respond faster than anyone I know. But, it took me a while to understand that when I was the fastest person around, I didn’t focus enough on my business. I was just being social (and nice to people). Being fast, it didn’t get me any results.
Fast is a good thing. But, if I’m going back to being fast, I need to have a strategy. I need to find a reason why I am going to keep my phone on, while I am writing. I need to have a reason to why I am going listen to the sound of new email arriving. So far, it’s all quiet, and I’m enjoying every minute of it.
