This post comes WAY back from the archives of a blog I tried to start in 2007, but it is still relevant to my day-to-day task and inbox management even today!
This is the video that kicked off my GTD implementation, as I was looking for a way to deal with my email overload. It is Merlin Mann presenting his Inbox Zero concept at a Google Tech Talk. Check it out when you have a free hour, or better yet, make a free hour to watch it. The return in productivity you get will be well worth the time spent.
My productivity has gone up. My stress has gone down. My desk and files is organized, and my computer is getting there. My e-mail inboxes and my paper inbasket are empty, and my head is clear (not empty).
As I watched/listened, I kept thinking “I can’t believe no one taught me this in college.”
