One of the things I am not good at is keeping up with correspondence. Send me an email - even a business email, and you'll be lucky to hear back in a week. Something about writing those emails is challenging for me, especially if I'm supposed to give information or make an appointment. It's not a one-sided problem. I have the same difficulty writing emails to ask for things. Receive an email from me asking for a favor or information or an appointment and you can be sure I spent a good week or more thinking about who to write to and what to write. Most likely, that email has been appearing on my to-do list for quiet some time. These delays make no sense to me, I cannot explain them, but I'm going to try to do something about them.
So, from today until the end of the year, I am going to try to develop a correspondence habit: devoting time every day to dealing with correspondence promptly and completely.
Wish me luck!
