Myrna Mitchell

Certified Financial Planner
Rapid City, South Dakota


I've developed A, B, and C days. On A days, I'm fully focused on just work. I put in a full day. On my B days, I permit myself some flexibility. I will check e-mails and check phone calls, but I don't do any client work. My C days, I do nothing. I don't turn on the computer, I don't check voicemail, I allow myself to fully meet my non-business passions. It's easy to turn on the computer every morning and see some e-mails you think just can't wait. But most of the time, these are not life-and-death e-mails.
