Avoid an environment where there may be distractions. Put your cell on vibrate so you are less bothered by other calls or text messages. Make sure you pick a time of day for our call when you are least likely to be disturbed and can give your full attention to the call.


The evening before our session spend a couple of minutes making notes to yourself about things you want to discuss.  This is your time, use it wel
