  • Lots to do! We have a choice: this can leave us in a permanent state of overwhelm, or we can stay on top of it all.
  • Use Next Action Stickies to deal with the piles on your desk
  • Problems: Doesn’t scale; can’t be organized; can’t be modified.
  • Email and paper mail have their own inboxes, but to have an idea/task in box, you have to write stuff down in your to-do list.
  • Organization != motivation
  • Enable batching; an example of PEEP for ideas
  • Goal of inbox zero: reach the bottom of the pile so you know what’s there.
  • Goal of inbox zero: reach the bottom of the pile so you know what’s there.
