Merlin Mann of 43 Folders fame spoke at the Techfest today. Very good. Here are some highlights:
- Don’t organize stuff that isn’t important to you. That’s crazy.
- Rule of thumb: If I have time to check my email I have time to process it.
- Delete, delegate, respond, defer, do
- Make the right thing the easy thing.
- Use templates for common email responses
- Just do something, it will make you feel better
- Don’t suck
- Email forwarding is blogging for old people
