I Need to Get Better At Email

Inbox back up to 45. How many emails am I writing/replying to each day? It seems like a lot, but I'm not tracking explicitly. Hmm.

This is what I wrote on October 1st -

1. My email volume has been going up, and I haven’t adjusted to a new routine for it. Before I’d go into my inbox, clear a third of it when I had free time waiting for something, and then do that twice more in the day, and it’d be empty at the end of the day. Now, I’m going to need to set aside more time for it.

2. I’m answering/replying/writing a lot more emails, so it feels like it should be empty – but then I’m leaving one or two messages there that weren’t there at the end of the day. This is like spending more money than you’ve got coming in – it’s going to catch up with you sooner or later.

3. I had 2-3 days in the last two weeks where I had my day booked end to end and didn’t answer anything except ultra time-sensitive email. But that fills up the inbox pretty quickly if not cleared out.

AirMail - Bring it!

Relating to sharing info as described in my debut post below, I (late to the party or not) just discovered AirMail. It's on sale in the App Store for $1.99. It's interface is clean and it supports Exchange. What I am most excited about is the integration with Evernote. This is something outlook has on the PC via plugin but has been starkly absent due to Outlook's lack of plugin support on the Mac.

Bam = Problem solved! Not only can you whisk any email into Evernote with a click, but you can generate Omnifocus tasks (or todo...) too - straight out of your email tool.

There is also a quick reply feature that makes a reply almost like and IM (appearance wise). The reply is a bubble in the same window as the original email - so dashing off quick replies in the same window you were reading the original email in is a snap!

Delay not... Pick it up and be happy!
