Letís look weekly roundup of productivity articles in last week.
In this Inc article about productivity, Stephanie has listed 15 habits that one can develop to improve productivity. Here is the list of points I personally found useful
When I came across this article, I remembered one of my colleagues from earlier organization. He was very particular about his inbox and at any point in time, he will have only handful of emails in his inbox. And the main point to note is: he would not miss out important communication/ project delivery schedule.
Similarly, Jessica the author of this article, must have come across people who managed to keep their inbox empty. Jessica has shared their email management secrets.
Archive Everything: We live in the age of information overload. We keep receiving hundreds of email regularly. Email experts have habit of filing received email that is marked as FYI or needs to be referred again. Rest emails find their way to To-Do list or redirected for further delegation or removed from inbox.
Email Filtering and Unsubscribe: Sometimes we subscribe to certain email newsletter for specific work and over the period that email newsletter has no relevance as we change job or change role. Email gurus remove periodic emails which are no-longer read. Email gurus apply email filters to make sure important emails lands in your inbox.
Quickly Respond & Take It off Your Shoulders: Email experts quickly decides whether to respond a given email depending on priority, urgency. If it can be responded within a couple of minutes, they would respond immediately and remove it from their list.
Note: This article isnít about time management or productivity.
Going by the title, I expected James Altucherís article to be about productivity improvement from the life of Albert Einstein. It turned out that this article isnít about productivity (somewhat misleading) but I wanted to post it here, for the perspective it offers.
