  • 9. My Verbs • Delete(or archive) • Delegate • Reply • Process
  • 10. Delete • You really don’t need it. • Act on it, or get rid of it. • If you really do need it, archive it. But don’t go crazy...
  • 11. Delegate • If someone else can service them better, let them. • Give yourself a reminder to follow up to make sure the email got taken care of.
  • 12. Reply • Don’t write a novel when a haiku will do. • Get good at quick replies, and process emails faster than ever.
  • 13. Process • Does this email require me to do something now? • If it takes less than an hour to process, then Just Do It. • If it will take longer, capture in your GTD system, and move on.
  • 14. Getting Started • Set up an Email DMZ • Quarantine your time • Schedule an Email Dash, once an hour. • Stay at zero by the end of each day.
