  18. 18. Dealing with “Big” Emails – Itzy Sabo <ul><li>I use a very simple technique to maintain a high level of responsiveness: whenever I'm processing my inbox and I decide that I need to reply to a particular message, but it will take too long to do it right now, I file it in a folder named &quot;Reply&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>When the dust settles at the end of each day, I have a clean list of the messages to which I need to reply, without other messages clouding my vision. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Getting Things Done – Nick Duffill <ul><li>The &quot;productivity formula&quot; that matches reality pretty well is &quot;Productivity = Knowledge x Focus squared&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>This says that focusing hard on something is the most effective way to achieve it. A lower level of knowledge coupled with unwavering commitment can easily outperform someone with better theoretical knowledge who is trying to keep too many plates spinning. You can spend a fortune on tools, techniques and skills, but it is focus that ultimately counts. </li></ul>
