I just released my first free “course” over on my Teachable site. It’s not really a course like my other paid courses because it’s much shorter. Instead, it’s a single video on my adapted email workflow and an accompanying PDF guide (for people who want a visual reference).
Basically I was frustrated with my own email workflow and went looking for ways to improve it. Along the way, I had the idea to document my changes so that others could benefit from me spending way too much time trying to solve this minor but annoying problem for myself. I’ve heard people on the internet say, “I don’t have a single unpublished thought.” Well, in this case I’m hoping my published thoughts on email can help people like me who want to crank through it as quickly as possible so they can move on to other things.
A couple of highlights:
- I have new criteria for deciding whether to do something with an email or send it to my task manager
- The Reference File is no more (GASP!)
- I’ve discovered Feedbin as a great solution for combining RSS & Read-It-Later
