Inbox Zero deel 2: de veelgestelde vragen

Eind januari publiceerde ik mijn blog over Inbox Zero, waarna er een aantal vragen binnen via email, LinkedIn en Twitter. Hierbij een overzicht van de meest gestelde vragen en mijn visie daarbij:

- Ik gebruik mijn inbox als mijn to-do lijst. Werkt dat ook?
De disclaimer op mijn blog is, dat de beschreven manier voor mij goed werkt. Mijn inbox gebruiken als to-do lijst, werkt voor mij niet. Onze hersenen kun je zien als het RAM geheugen. Een computer waarvan het RAM-geheugen vol loopt doordat er teveel programma’s open staan, wordt trager.… Visit the author's original post

In the tea room today, a colleague was complaining that it took so much work to turn emails into appointments in her diary and then she could never find her meeting notes anyway.… Visit the author's original post
