I woke up to 651 new emails in my inbox this morning– and immediately felt overwhelmed. I took a deep breath and started processing them– pacing myself, much like a marathon runner who can’t freak out over the next 26.2 miles.
When you see that many messages– not counting Facebook messages, text messages, conference calls, Skype messages, and so forth, you don’t know which of these items are important. But you know they’re in there. So do you frantically scan through them, process them one at time, or filter for key names/phrases?
I want to teach you my process for handling seemingly impossible workloads. Want to see me go live and let you peek over my shoulder as I process my inboxes? Or do you have a special trick or tool you like to use?
