These days phones aren’t really used for making calls, but you might want to change that. I’m Brian Banmiller on business.

A few months ago, with the help of the job resource site ladders dot com, I reported on the seven emails you should send every week to get ahead in your career. But what about those times when it’s easier to explain something or you don’t want the message to be lost. In those cases, you should use the phone.  If you still remember how to use the phone here are five calls you should make every week. For example, a call to someone who stretches you. Find someone who holds you to a higher standard than you hold yourself. Then try to impress them, this will force you to up your game especially if you have fallen into a comfortable routine. Or call someone who’s doing something cool outside your lane. If you’re a numbers person speak to an artist and vice versa. Be open to other ideas and perspectives. For more important phone calls go to Texting doesn’t count. Brian Banmiller, CBS News.
