When Talking To Yourself Is Encouraged
C’mon, it’s 4th of July and there’s no way that you should be inside in front of your computer!
But you have so many thoughts about work running through your brain that MUST be followed-up. Or maybe someone just told you of an amazing referral for the __________ you were looking for? Or perhaps you just met someone and no one has a pen around the BBQ grill to write that person’s contact information down?
We know you have a lousy memory. What to do? Do you trust yourself to remember? Of course not!
How about talking to yourself and forgetting about it until you can take care of it later? YES! Here’s how. . .
Jott.com is a great free service that lets you call the Jott.com Access Number (1 (877) JOTT IT NOW, 1 (877) 568 8486) and then tell it to whom you want to send the message from you contact list, and then speak the message. It is automatically transcribed from voice to text and sent as a text and/or email message.
You can choose to Jott yourself by saying “ME” or another person from your contact list. You can easily import contacts from all the major email platforms including Yahoo!Mail, Gmail, AOL, Outlook/Outlook Express, Plaxo, and more. It will bring up your address book from the selected email service and then you can choose which get imported (vs. importing all by default).
Jott also allows you to send a message blast to a group of people like your family, co-workers, sports team members, etc. It’s a great way to quickly send an update or message to someone else that you know is in a meeting or can’t take a voice call at the moment. It’s faster than typing a text message into your cell phone, yet does the same thing.
When you get back to your PC, you also have an option to print out a selection of jotts in your account. So if you were sending jott messages about a given project, or shopping list, etc, you can simply print them all out together.
The Jott cell phone service is A) free B) easy to use (just call and speak) and C) practical/useful. Try it, you’ll like it!
