- Persistency Pays. Heaps
- Excel Wrap Text
- TouchRetouch App
1. Focus /Get More Done
Stop incoming email notice prompts or sounds from distracting you.
Aside from the obvious of closing your email program, here’s the fix to turn off the notifications:
File>Options>Mail>Message Arrival. Uncheck all four boxes (play a sound; briefly change the mouse pointer; show an envelope icon; display a desktop alert).
2. Word Doc Margins
Do you fiddle with your margins? Resetting each new Word Document because you don’t like the default margin? Or you have several document styles that require different margins?
YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!
You know you can change the margin setting for a doc in the Layout Ribbon > Margins in the Page Set Up Menu. When you make the change, save it – give it a name. You can even set it as your new default. However, if you use different margin settings, here’s the wonderful trick. Right click Margins. One of the options is Add To Quick Access Toolbar. Select it, and a new icon appears in the Toolbar. Next time you want to set the margins, all you have to do is click the icon and select it. See image below.
Please let your colleagues, friends and family know about this newsletter and invite them to subscribe. It would give me the most gracious of complements. https://debbiespeaks.com/newsletter/newsletter-sign-up/
3. Persistency Pays, Heaps
One of the easiest ways of following up – even if it takes five years for a decision to be made is to use the TASK function of your email, proprietary software or APP.
Automating and systemising Tasks for follow up can take anyone in “sales/business development” from good to spectacular and ensure you don’t waste prospecting efforts or lose opportunities.
4. Excel Wrap Text
In the last newsletter we covered creating a Line Break in an Excel Cell. (Link is here) However, if you prefer
- instead you can wrap the text. Simply move the left or right margin enables you to increase/decrease the width
- Alternatively you’ll find Wrap Text icon in the Home Ribbon > Alignment menu.
