Keep a “Waiting For” List

Any time you contact someone and need a reply, or send off an application, or place an order, you have to wait for information or goods to come back to you.

A great way to keep track of this kind of thing is one or more “waiting for” lists. A simple list is good for keeping brief notes: a folder in your email system keeps track of emails you’re waiting for a reply to: a “waiting for” file folder lets you drop in applications, orders, complaint letters, and other papers (dated).

Make sure to check your “waiting” for lists and files regularly, at least weekly, and take action when answers don’t come as quickly as they should.
