Doing the task

If there's enough prioritization, you don't need to jump between tasks. Finish each task through to completion before attempting another task. If a task is on hold, like someone not picking up the phone, then set another time to redo that task and proceed with the next task in your prioritized list.

Limit back-and-forth by providing information and thinking ahead. If someone asks what time you would be available? Don't respond with: what times would you be available? Give the client at least 3 free times and let them decide what works for them. You can begin with: I'd like to propose these times...

Batch requests all at once for maximum effectivity. There's less setup involved. It's a time effective solution. There's a setup time for all tasks, and if we are able to group similar tasks together, then the mental flow of working is a lot more streamlined, compared to context-switching between tasks. For example, it's a lot easier to read emails once per day for multiple clients as opposed to checking email throughout the day, interrupting other activities.
