Of course, it’s the days that I’m the most stressed and time-crunched when I forget my phone at home or send that email to the utterly wrong group. Ugh.
So today’s tip is simple: when things are moving a million miles a minute, slow down. Double-check your work.
Do a mental checklist of all the things you need before you leave the house.
Reread the important client email
Loop in a co-worker to go through your execution plan again
Trust me; the extra few minutes are worth it. You can’t afford silly mistakes to derail you, and you are far more likely to be making them.
