4Ds of email

Attended a workshop on doing more with MS Outlook today, by Priority Management. Was a good investment of my time – learnt some neat tricks in Outlook and was reminded of key productivity principles.

One principle that I thought was worth sharing:

Touch it once: Every time you open an email, do one of the 4Ds:

D – Delete

D – Delegate

D – Do it!

D – Defer/ Date Associate

Set up 30 mins in the morning every day to do this and you be all set to get to Inbox 0.
