I know you.
You are one the kind of person who has an imaginary list (maybe even a real one) that is a mile long and you are perpetually adding items to that list just as fast as you can check them off!
(Insert infomercial voice) BUT WAIT!!! THERES MORE!!
You have a constant feeling of urgency and always have your day on "catch up" mode. Its a good thing that you found this article. You can take a deep breath now, its okay. Here are some Productivity Hacks for Busy People.
Tame the Beast.
In the world of business, you are a warrior and email is the beast. You can't slay it, so you need to tame it to your will. Have it be an ally to you instead of an enemy. If your like most people, emails come flooding in at a frequency that you can barely fathom.
Lets assume you spend at least 1 hour a day, 5 days a week on emails. If you were to cut your time spent on emails in half, that is 30 minutes a day that you have freed up to focus on the more important tasks. Thats 2 & 1/2 hours a week to get that big project done. Thats 1 ten hour day every month that you didn't have before! Thats 12 days a year you can get back right now!
Edit your filters to get rid of more of the junk mail. They already have reset settings, but you can narrow it down even more to ditch the emails from that restaurant you went to while on vacation in another country.
