Reclaim your time! … and don’t waste mine.
With the holidays approaching, now is the time to start thinking about 2011 goals and 2010 gifts. Why not combine the two and hand out Meeting Tokens this year! You can’t give out certificates for the Human Fund EVERY Year! All jokes aside, I’ve found a lot of value in implementing an Inbox Zero plan for managing my email communications. If your inbox emails number in the thousands, give yourself a present and check out http://inboxzero.com/articles/.
Some of the concepts that I really like are dropping all the folder structures for archiving mail. Whenever you end up looking for something, you inevitably end up using a search feature so why not save yourself some aggravation and time and just file everything in ONE folder and let Search sort it out. Simple concepts like that can really change the way you manage your email and get through it in a timely fashion.
BTW: I know this is probably really Off Topic but the token is such a great image that I HAD to put a post together for it!
