It's hard enough managing the deluge of emails

 scroll down to see my section “set expectations”.
It’s hard enough managing the deluge of emails that comes in on a daily basis, but it’s an even heftier task dealing with it while on vacation.
For most entrepreneurs, it’s almost impossible to totally disconnect from email for any long period of time.
With 59 percent of entrepreneurs planning to take at least one full week off this summer, according to an American Express OPEN survey, they’ll need to prioritize and set boundaries so they don’t become slaves to their inboxes.
“It’s definitely a balancing act,” says Alice Bredin, a Cambridge, Massachusetts, small-business adviser to American Express OPEN, the small-business arm of American Express.
In most cases, business owners vacationing for a week aren’t going to have a complete email break, and they don’t need to in order to refresh, she says.
It’s partly “just accepting the fact that a great vacation for you is keeping in touch,” she notes.
This year’s survey results show that executives are still confident enough to leave their businesses for a full week. The results are just slightly down from last year’s 60 percent, but well above 2013’s 49 percent, according to OPEN’s Spring 2015 Small Business Monitor.
“To me that says business owners feel confident enough that they’ll be getting the orders they need and customers in the door that they can take some time away,” says Bredin.
Establish limits. If you’re going to stay connected, set limits on the number of times per day or week that you’ll check email, suggests Nancy Flynn, executive director of the Columbus, Ohio-based ePolicy Institute, a training and consulting organization, and author of “Writing Effective E-Mail, 3rd Ed.” (Crisp; $19.95).
Nearly 20 years ago she had a vacation ruined by a client who left her daily voice mail and email messages, she said. They kept missing each other, and when Flynn returned, she realized there had been no real emergency on the client’s part.
That broke her from the habit of constantly checking email while on vacation.
She suggests prioritizing and replying to messages that truly are urgent and require a timely response. Flynn tells clients if there’s something urgent or a crisis, to text her instead of sending an email.
You can also create a VIP email folder, says Steve Davies, president of the Nassau Chapter of The Alternative Board, a business consultancy, and TheTimeEdge.com, which provides time management solutions.
You can flag specific email addresses to show up in that folder; that’s what he does when he’s away.
“If you have 10 key clients that you drop everything for, then you put them in your VIP email list,” says Davies. You can tell them you’ll be away but that their emails will be coming into a special mailbox.
He also creates folders called “filing,” “upon return” and “assistant.” He’ll check his emails once or twice daily when he’s away and won’t necessarily respond to each one, but at the very least he will move them into one of those folders.
Set expectations. Create an out-of-office auto-responder email to let clients know you’re traveling and won’t be responding to emails, says Eileen Lichtenstein, chief executive of Balance & Power Inc. in Westbury, a coaching firm that specializes in work-life and stress/anger issues.
If you can swing it, carve out a couple of days where you totally disconnect, she says. Just be sure to choose those days carefully around times when you don’t expect any pressing demands, she notes.
When Lichtenstein is away, she makes it a point to check her emails on a landline computer at a hotel or Internet cafe rather then constantly check her phone.
“That frees me up,” she says. “It separates me from my phone.”

What makes you happy?

When you discover that equation then I know you will get lots of compliments re: you’re looking great! and I hope you can say “thanks!” – like I’ve been doing since I’ve been in the semi-public eye for 3 days since my return from fun-family vacationing and adventures in Europe.Free HAPP...

What’s different?  I’ve been noticing all day today here in Long Island, NY   that my work load is lighter (since I’ve given myself time to catch up) and that I’m not in a hurry to complete  something or get somewhere.  I’ve had extreme patience (for me) at MD’s office’s and bank business.  That’s really different…

I’ve not attended any evening events (due to jetlag).  Jetlag is gone now (speeded up with acupuncture and light treatments:))

 and I’ve really been able to catch up.  Many lessons here…

Sometimes as entrepreneurs/small biz owners we must be on overload, even when we do not realize it.  This week has shown me, once again, how important it is to take an extended time off.

Just do it- it’s good for you- and you’ll look great!

I always try out new EFT www.balanceandpower.com/eft.php  techniques on myself first even if they don’t seem to apply to me, and the idea of targeting procrastination certainly didn’t seem to apply. Although ending procrastination with EFT was an intriguing idea, I was sure that I was the last person in the world who needed to address this problem. I remembered how some relatives of mine are chronically annoyed with my tendency to do things immediately as they come up. “Do you always have to do everything “yesterday”? What’s the hurry? Can’t it wait?”.
So, when I sat down and wrote out a huge list of To-Do’s that related to the four major projects I was working on at the time (all with pressing deadlines!) I found the list itself to be revealing. Did I really have that much to do in so little time and in so many different areas of my life?
To test out my new EFT strategy, I systematically applied it to each item on my list. However, it wasn’t until the following day that I saw the effects. What happened then was eye opening.
My first realization was that I had, in fact, been fooling myself all along. I had been a secret (hidden to myself) “procrastinator” on a number of levels and in certain areas, and this had been causing me uneasiness, annoyance at myself, and some needless inefficiency, although by ordinary standards I am not inefficient.
HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED THE NEXT DAY…
• When I looked over the topics of things I had to get done I felt so different about doing them that it was hard to believe that this was possible.
• I was doing them, one after the other.
• It was no big deal to do them.
• I didn’t feel sorry for myself for having to “do the impossible”.
• There was no self-pity (and I hadn’t even realized I’d had any self-pity before!)
• My carefully constructed rationale for not doing these things was gone. It had vanished.
• I couldn’t believe this was “me” acting this way. Something basic had changed.
A few readings-over of my list of EFT Choices over the subsequent days, and some time spent tapping on them, and this change consolidated and became permanent.
Then I began to apply this method to my clients and the same thing happened with them. Their procrastination simply melted away, even if it had been a persistent habit. The new EFT method simply transformed the way these people viewed themselves in relation to getting things done that needed to be done.
In short, this unorthodox and surprising approach worked. Since then I’ve taught this gentle method for getting rid of procrastination to a large number of clients, with life transformative results. Do you want to have your life change as you see things become easy to do that never were before Easy… Transforming… This new approach can dissolve your tendency to procrastinate.
I’m coaching entrepreneurs who are finding new opportunities in this new marketplace and also people who yearn to be entrepreneurs and need a sounding board, encouragement, brainstoming opportunities, clear vision and a boost in confidence in order to move forward.

To all the recipients of my heart felt networking letter from a few days ago, please add to my recommended networking links:

David Gussin, http://www.516ads.com and http://www.631ads.com, a star of Long Island’s networking/advertising/PR community –
David has informative and fun sites which, in addition to postings and listings, have informational and fun articles, including mine- posted each month on his 516 website.
And, ta-da! Yvonne and Howard Bisk, lientrepreneurs@yahoo.com who have mentored me in networking meet-ups. The afternoon after I wrote the letter and pressed send, I came down with an awful stomach bug (missed Savannah’s). Thanks, Yvonne, for the lovely tea and sympathy note~
The bug must’ve been brewing and I missed a few key links in the process. Please accept my humble apologies~ David, Yvonne and Howard.

Peace, love and light,
Eileen
