I’ve been trying a new strategy and holy biscuits, am I getting a lot done.
Every day, I grab about 10 things off my “This Week” list and put them on my “Today” list. Then (and this is the key) before I even open my email program, I try to knock at least two things off my Today list.
It works 🙂
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: email is a great way for other people, instead of yourself, to dictate what you do on a day-to-day basis. Take control by doing what you want to do, before responding to what others want you to do.
