Many executives and office workers identify telephone tag as the number one time waster in their workday. You call Bill and leave a message. Then Bill returns your call but misses you. Back and forth you go until you finally connect and neither of you remembers who made the first call or why.
To break out of the telephone tag game, try sending a fax. Unlike mail or email, fax messages tend to get read immediately and often you can say everything in a fax you intended to say in person.
Maybe you’re calling from home and don’t have a fax. But if you have a computer, there is a very good chance you do have a fax. Check your list of available printers to see if you have a fax listed which you can print to, just like you would print to a printer.
At times, God uses various means to get His message through. Maybe we should too, if we want to redeem the time.
