Run inbox zero
Ruthlessly delete emails you don’t want to answer.
Keep your replies short and do not start conversations in email.
Anything that needs 5m or less, handle immediately.
Anything longer, use superstars and labels to file away and get back to later.
Avoid live meetings and phone calls unless absolutely urgent or important. They suck a lot more life out of you than you think.
Keep your calendar as open as possible so you can focus on the highest priority thing.
If you don’t end up bored, you won’t be creative. Make sure you set aside enough time to get bored.
