  • Its Time to Outsmart Your Inbox

  • Commandment #1

    Email is like Tetris.

    Problem: No matter how good you are, more keep on coming.

    Solution: You need a better system, process, and tools!

  • Commandment #2

    Email is not your #1 priority.

    Problem: Email is a to-do list other people write on.

    Solution:

    Scan: for important/urgent emails in the morning, and then move on. Block: 30-60min appointments in your calendar to be more efficient. Ask: Is clearing my inbox the best use of time?
