Welcome to the fifth of our 52 Get Organized Missions.
This week’s task will help you save time and increase productivity every single day – simply by being smarter and more proactive in your routine verbal communications.
Your challenge this week is to spend 30 minutes creating simple templates or scripts for routine communications, such as:
- Receiving messages (your own voicemail)
- Leaving messages (other people’s voicemail)
It may feel a little foreign at first to be so clear-headed about something as squishy as, well, talking, but the benefits will convert you. Try it and see for yourself!
Note: The sample messages are only for ideas. Of course you’ll want to come up with something that suits your role and personality.
And remember – it is only 30 minutes.

Our group responses are as follows: Receiving messages:I am unable to come to the phone right please leave a message after the beep.
Leaving messages:Please return my call ASAP or I am sorry I cannot keep my appointment today please reschedule.
Sample message: Hi this is Julie Please call me at 555-5555. I need to talk to you about an important matter.
Excellent, good examples!
Thanks to the group 🙂
All done again today. As before I found the voicemail and delegation scripts of particular use. On to the next mission on this catch up session…
This is done.
Hot dang, I’m on a roll! Mission 5 complete! Maybe I’ll even end up catching up with the schedule at this rate. 😉
All done on this one. I find the voicemail greeting and delegation scripts of particular use. Thanks for the advice as ever.
