(Unless you play WoW. In which case, y’know, you should probably go work on that instead of reading this post.)
In this post, I’m going to run through a system that’s at least halved the amount of time I spend on email.
Because the problem isn’t email per se: it’s that most people deal with email in an incredibly inefficient way, for which it was never intended.
I mean, did people in the 1960s spend all day walking to their mailbox every 5 minutes “just in case”, and keep the paperwork for all their most important tasks in the middle of a big pile of junk mail?
Possibly, if they were doing a lot of LSD. But that’s not the point.
