Step 6 to GTD Mastery is: I have voice mail, set up the way I want it.
During class, my cell phone is on vibrate. Usually, anyone on campus who needs to reach me will use text messaging, but others who may not know my class schedule will actually call. They are greeted with my voice mail message which asks the person to simply state what they want and the ideal method of reaching them. This lets me easily follow-up with the other party or perform the appropriate next action.
After class, I can check my voice mail by holding down the “1″ key for a couple of seconds. I listen to my voice mail and capture any important details along with the contact using my HipRock. Any triggered next actions are also placed on the HipRock. I delete the voice mail immediately after listening to it.
