Quick Calling

When I used to exercise compulsively, I had a saying I would use to keep hydrated: "When you think, drink."

Now that I am abstinent, I no longer exercise compulsively. But I use a similar method to make outreach calls. Whenever my intuition (also known as my HP's will) tells me I should really make a call, I immediately grab my phone and call someone before my self-will can stop me. To make it easier, I enter all OA members into my phone's contact list this way: First I enter "OA" and then the name. Now all my OA folks are grouped together alphabetically under "O" so I can dial someone faster.
