Have you ever been sitting there waiting for someone who never showed up? Or perhaps you forgot an appointment yourself?
Something I have started recently that is working well for me is to reconfirm appointments.
One of the last things on my work day schedule is to reconfirm appointments. So I email clients confirming our call or chat the next day, call friends if we are getting together tomorrow, or call any other appointment I may have.
The only exception is the doctor. I call the office not long before my appointment to make sure the doctor is on time and that he isn’t in emergency surgery.
Not only does confirming the appointments help them remember, it also helps me plan for the next day and reminds me of what is coming up.
